SmartBear Demonstrates AlertSite UXM Application Quality and Performance Management Platform at DevOpsDays Boston

SmartBear Software, the choice of more than two million software professionals for building and delivering the world’s best applications, is demonstrating AlertSite UXM™, which helps application development teams focus on delivering superior online user experiences, at DevOpsDays Boston, Monday, August 18 – Tuesday, August 19, 2014. SmartBear is a Gold Sponsor of DevOpsDays Boston, the conference that brings development and operations together.

         

WHAT:

SmartBear’s AlertSite UXM Application Quality and Performance Management Platform at DevOpsDays Boston
 

WHEN:

Monday, August 18 – Tuesday, August 19, 2014
 

WHERE:

Microsoft NERD Center, 1 Memorial Drive #1, Cambridge, Massachusetts
 

Fragmentation of solutions is a major problem in the application performance management (APM) space. Most vendors provide a point solution for some part of performance management, but yet, very few are able to provide a unified solution. As a result, the root cause of problems are difficult to find, and teams have a hard time communicating because the data is so disparate. As a result, the user experience suffers. Point solutions also require additional learning and the management of multiple tools. AlertSite UXM is the first rapid time to value, easy-to-deploy, easy-to-use platform that unifies synthetic, real transaction monitoring and load testing in a single platform delivered as either a SaaS or on premise offering.

The article, “Why Today’s APM Solutions Aren’t Optimized for DevOps,” is available on the SmartBear blog at:

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility.
The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Rancher then initiates deployment to those clusters.
