Boundary Helps Increasing Number of Companies Maximize Success With AWS, Showcases Solution at AWS Summit

Boundary Delivers Unmatched Visibility Into AWS, Enabling Organizations to Identify and Solve Problems That Are Invisible to Other Solutions

NEW YORK, NY and MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA -- (Marketwired) -- 07/10/14 -- Boundary today announced that an increasing number of companies have selected Boundary to monitor modern, highly-distributed applications running on public cloud infrastructures. Boundary will be highlighting its solution today at the AWS Summit at the Javits Center in New York City.

Cengage and Infor Global recently joined a growing list of companies that have selected Boundary for its unprecedented visibility into their AWS infrastructures. Other Boundary customers monitoring AWS environments include: Omnifone, Wattpad and Whisper.

A major challenge of monitoring in the cloud is the ephemeral nature of cloud instances. Boundary addresses this dynamic nature by automatically identifying changes in AWS instances and updating the infrastructure topology. The solution's second-by-second views of application health and infrastructure performance provides the unprecedented visibility organizations using AWS need to anticipate and solve problems, while minimizing downtime and performance issues.

"Boundary offers a more complete view of what's going on in our cloud infrastructure so we can deliver the best reading and writing experience to more than 30 million Wattpaders around the world," said Ray Slakinski, Lead DevOps at Wattpad. "Now we are able to see traffic between nodes so we can quickly identify, diagnose, and resolve issues that could lead to performance degradation."

Additionally, out-of-the-box integrations for AWS CloudTrail, AWS SNS, and AWS CloudWatch enable customers to use Boundary more effectively in an Amazon environment.

"Organizations running critical applications on AWS require a monitoring solution designed specifically to address the elasticity and complexity of the environment while supplying the visibility needed to anticipate future performance issues," said Gary Read, Boundary CEO. "Boundary is the only solution that shows latency views by the second to help companies identify and address how the AWS infrastructure is affecting their applications."

Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
Digital transformation is about embracing digital technologies into a company's culture to better connect with its customers, automate processes, create better tools, enter new markets, etc. Such a transformation requires continuous orchestration across teams and an environment based on open collaboration and daily experiments. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Alex Casalboni, Technical (Cloud) Evangelist at Cloud Academy, explored and discussed the most urgent unsolved challenges to achieve full cloud literacy in the enterprise world.

Continuous Delivery makes it possible to exploit findings of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to increase the productivity and happiness of our teams.
As DevOps methodologies expand their reach across the enterprise, organizations face the daunting challenge of adapting related cloud strategies to ensure optimal alignment, from managing complexity to ensuring proper governance. How can culture, automation, legacy apps and even budget be reexamined to enable this ongoing shift within the modern software factory? In her Day 2 Keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Aruna Ravichandran, VP, DevOps Solutions Marketing, CA Technologies, was joined by a panel of industry experts and real-world practitioners who shared their insight into an emerging set of best practices that lie at the heart of today's digital transformation.
The standardization of container runtimes and images has sparked the creation of an almost overwhelming number of new open source projects that build on and otherwise work with these specifications. Of course, there's Kubernetes, which orchestrates and manages collections of containers. It was one of the first and best-known examples of projects that make containers truly useful for production use. However, more recently, the container ecosystem has truly exploded. A service mesh like Istio addresses many of the challenges faced by developers and operators as monolithic applications transition towards a distributed microservice architecture. A tracing tool like Jaeger analyzes what's happening as a transaction moves through a distributed system. Monitoring software like Prometheus captures time-series events for real-time alerting and other uses. Grafeas and Kritis provide security polic...
