Building and running applications in the cloud can bring benefits in terms of speed-to-market, cost savings, and scalability, but also poses challenges around application performance management. Application managers look to cloud monitoring solutions to help them meet these challenges. But what they too often find is restrictive cloud monitoring solutions that are limited to a particular cloud vendor, to particular platform or infrastructure technologies, or a particular phase of the application lifecycle. Application managers are thus left with only a partial view of their application’s health, or else have to kludge together multiple disparate cloud monitoring solutions in an effort to see a fuller picture.
In this fragmented cloud monitoring landscape the exception is Dynatrace, a unified cloud monitoring solutions platform that delivers unrestricted visibility and control across your entire cloud application architecture and across all stages of the application lifecycle. Available as a SaaS or on-premise solution, Dynatrace is relied on by more than 8000 businesses worldwide for cloud application monitoring and cloud performance management, as well as for performance management of on-premises and hybrid cloud applications.
Cloud monitoring solutions for launching new cloud applications and features
Dynatrace integrated cloud monitoring solutions help solve the challenges of getting applications up and running in the cloud:
Cloud migration. Before migrating an on-premise application to the cloud, use Dynatrace to precisely gauge the performance profile and resource consumption patterns of the application – so you know exactly what your initial cloud infrastructure requirements are. Dynatrace will then facilitate before-and-after performance comparisons subsequent to the migration.
Cloud application mapping and baselining. Once your application has been built in or migrated to the cloud, Dynatrace automatically maps the entire application topology across all platform and infrastructure tiers and reports baseline performance behavior – and automatically updates the mapping and baselining whenever you modify the application or your cloud resource usage. Dynatrace application dependency mapping tools and performance baselining tools work seamlessly for all major IaaS and PaaS cloud vendors, all major development platforms, all leading database systems, and all leading virtualization and containerization technologies.
Agile development in the cloud. Dynatrace cloud performance monitoring tools integrate with lDEs, build systems, and testing tools to provide developers and QA staff with application performance insights early in the application lifecycle, when problems are narrower and are easier and faster to fix.
Cloud monitoring solutions for optimizing cloud application performance and ROI
Dynatrace unified cloud monitoring solutions help you to keep cloud applications running smoothly and to maximize the business value of running applications in the cloud:
Anomaly detection and root cause analysis. Dynatrace tracks every single application transaction from click-to-code and applies artificial intelligence to this "big data" to automatically detect performance anomalies or degradations and to automatically pinpoint the root cause of the issue – regardless of whether the cause lies in the infrastructure, the platform, or the code.
User experience monitoring. Dynatrace integrated cloud application monitoring tools include real user monitoring as well as synthetic monitoring, so you can see cloud application performance from the perspective that matters most – the perspective of your end users.
Capacity planning. With Dynatrace cloud application performance monitoring you can precisely analyze cloud resource utilization by transaction type and by user, so you can acquire the resource level that you need to meet business objectives – but without over-provisioning or over-paying.
