Surveys have found that over 90% of companies plan to go cloud-native with some of their business applications within 5 years. For these companies, having an effective cloud performance management strategy in place using the best available tools is essential to guarantee that their cloud initiatives are successful.
Cloud architectures are inherently complex and dynamic. Cloud performance monitoring tools and solutions need to accommodate the elasticity of cloud components and services that are implemented in virtual machines that can be created or released with a few clicks. This is especially applicable in the growing microservices segment. Only the most advanced cloud performance management technology can accurately monitor and analyze the performance of cloud applications.
Dynatrace, the digital performance management market leader, provides turnkey cloud application performance monitoring solutions that are purpose-built for dynamic cloud environments. Dynatrace’s solutions and tools enable you to navigate through the complexity of cloud architectures to monitor the performance of application components in the cloud.
Dynatrace cloud performance management technology is driven by machine learning and artificial intelligence algorithms that allow you to automatically detect all application dependencies both inside and outside of the cloud. Using Dynatrace for cloud application monitoring, you can automatically detect your application’s dependencies in AWS, Microsoft Azure, Cloud Foundry, OpenStack, OpenShift, and more. Dynatrace also automatically catalogs the business transactions that your cloud application conducts, and determines the application’s baseline performance behavior.
Dynatrace’s intelligent automations for application mapping and baselining enable you to begin monitoring your cloud applications quickly with minimal setup and zero configuration.
Dynatrace delivers real-time visualizations of your application topology in the Dynatrace console. All application dependencies, including those in the cloud, are mapped and displayed in an easy-to-understand infographic. For example, using Dynatrace Azure monitoring tools, you can easily see each Azure endpoint within your application.
Dynatrace automatically recognizes changes in your cloud application topography and updates the infographics accordingly. From the infographics you can easily drill down to the performance data of each monitored component and identify any hotspot or bottleneck. No other cloud monitoring solutions offer the same level of visibility, usability, and automation as Dynatrace.
Dynatrace’s cloud application monitoring tools automatically analyze captured performance data for actionable insights. Dynatrace artificial intelligence identifies performance anomalies and automatically carries out root cause analysis. Once a root cause is determined, Dynatrace sends a notification alert to bring the issue—and the root cause—to the attention of your operations team. Dynatrace’s ability to automatically analyze performance issues and identify a root cause enables your cloud performance management teams to focus on fixing problems rather than trying to reproduce them. Often this allows you to address performance issues proactively and quickly before they affect your customers.
