CopperEgg has announced year-end results for 2013, achieving 380 percent growth in monthly recurring revenues year-over-year, and adding 440 new customers. The company also named Chad Bockius as CEO, Heidi Farris as vice president of marketing, and Chris Yndo as vice president of sales.
Growth was fueled by strong demand for CopperEgg’s end-to-end cloud performance monitoring solutions, as well as its newly released Application Performance Management feature – Real User Monitoring (RUM). CopperEgg now provides comprehensive monitoring of cloud infrastructure and applications designed, priced and packaged to cover the complete production environment.
“The cloud has become non-negotiable for businesses that want to optimize customer experience and competitive advantage while minimizing the cost and complexity of their IT infrastructure,” said Bockius. “We’ve seen tremendous success this year as more customers move from cloud pilots to production environments, and need to better understand how application and server performance affects real user experience. As cloud adoption accelerates, I expect demand for our lightweight, affordable solutions to only increase.”
Year-end highlights for 2013 include:
Strong sales: Monthly recurring revenue grew 380 percent year-over-year, including 440 new customers. Key wins included: Comcast, HomeAway, Juniper Networks and Real Networks, with strong momentum across all industry verticals. CopperEgg now processes more than 100 billion metrics per day, helping DevOps users and cloud-dependent businesses maximize visibility, minimize false alarms and optimize performance fidelity.
Product innovation: CopperEgg debuted its RUM solution for cloud-based applications, providing complete visibility across servers, websites, applications and end users in public, private and hybrid cloud environments. The company also continued to deepen its partnership with Amazon with the release of its application-aware cloud sizing tool to track the usage of current systems and provide optimal AWS EC2 instance recommendations. The tool analyzes the usage of applications and makes predictions based on algorithms. It also includes new capabilities to create custom dashboards including executive displays, role-based views and more.
Industry accolades and Thought leadership: Enterprise Management Associates named CopperEgg “A Vendor to Watch” for its SaaS-based APM monitoring optimized for elastic cloud environments. In addition, CopperEgg speakers presented at several industry thought leadership events, including the AWS Summit 2013 and #ChefConf 2013, where they demonstrated enhancements to CopperEgg’s Chef Cookbook.
Corporate growth: CopperEgg expanded the breadth and depth of its management team, announcing the appointment of Chad Bockius as CEO, Heidi Farris as vice president of marketing, and Chris Yndo as vice president of sales. The company more than doubled its number of employees, and recently moved into a larger corporate headquarters.

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations." What does this mean for the enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. The truth is that DevOps and the enterprise are at best strange bedfellows. The movement has its roots in the tech community's elite. Open source projects and methodologies driven by the alumni of companies ...

Some developers believe that monitoring is a function of the operations team. Some operations teams firmly believe that monitoring the systems they maintain is sufficient to run the business successfully. Most of them are wrong. The complexity of today's applications have gone far and beyond the capabilities of "traditional" system-level monitoring tools and approaches and requires much broader knowledge of business and applications as a whole. The goal of DevOps is to connect all aspects of application development and operations, and monitoring provides visibility and troubleshooting tools to...

DevOps is the hottest moving target when it comes to software development methodologies. Many people fear that this fast-paced, barrier-breaking movement will leave information security best practices in the dust. Analysts provide recommendations to security professionals using bingo-laden terms like "moving security to the left" or "get a seat at the table." What we need are real-world examples and tactics for security practitioners to be part of DevOps. In his session at DevOps Summit, Andrew Storms, a DevOps and Information Security professional, discussed how DevOps done right with the in...

Over the years, a variety of methodologies have emerged in order to overcome the challenges related to project constraints. The successful use of each methodology seems highly context-dependent. However, communication seems to be the common denominator of the many challenges that project management methodologies intend to resolve. In this respect, Information and Communication Technologies (ICTs) can be viewed as powerful tools for managing projects. Few research papers have focused on the way ICTs are used in software development environments. We posit that the use of ICTs in a plan-driven ...

As the world moves from DevOps to NoOps, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler. However, applications have been architected with a much tighter coupling than it needs to be which makes deployment in different environments and migration between them harder. The microservices architecture, which is the basis of many new age distributed systems such as OpenStack, Netflix and so on is at the heart of CloudFoundry – a complete developer-oriented Platform as a Service (PaaS) that is IaaS agnostic and supports vCloud, OpenStack and AWS.
