Stackify Launches APM+ | @CloudExpo @Stackify [#Cloud]

APM+ gives developers continuous, real-time analysis of application behavior

Cloud-based application performance monitoring and management provider Stackify announces the launch of their APM+ (Application Performance Management) solution for Microsoft® ASP.NET, a cost-effective solution offering real-time, code-level insights for business-critical applications. This lightweight solution requires minimal server resources while giving developers continuous code-level visibility into application behavior to improve their system's overall performance.

Stackify's new APM+ solution was designed to run on production servers, thus allowing developers to capture and fix application performance problems immediately instead of requiring them to spend time reproducing reported errors in order to solve them. The new APM+ moves beyond many traditional APM solutions on the market that are either too expensive or have high resource utilization, causing developers to activate them only after an issue has been reported.

APM+ gives developers an increased understanding at every level of an application's performance and offers code-level profile traces to provide unparalleled system visibility - including method calls, log statements, cache lookups, DB queries, and web service requests. With innovative support for asynchronous (async/await) development patterns, APM+ offers developers an easy way to track performance behavior in modern ASP.NET applications that take advantage of async programming techniques.

"The new APM+ solution is an incredible addition to Stackify's log management and application monitoring solutions. It allows us to quickly and easily identify performance issues all the way down to external calls, database queries, and even individual methods. There is simply no better tool to identify performance issues that can run in production, period," say Michael Paterson, Principal software engineer at Carbonite, which is using APM+ as part of Stackify's beta program.

APM+ fully integrates with Stackify's existing application and server monitoring, and error & log management solutions. This full suite of products provides developers and IT operations professionals the industry's most comprehensive view of the health and performance of their applications.

"The level of real-time app performance and depth of APM+ analytics is unmatched in the market. Not only does Stackify give a complete 360 degree view of how a system is spending its time and where, but it also allows developers to quickly drill down to the heart of the code and see how it can be fixed or improved," says Stackify CTO, Jason Taylor. "Stackify's economical APM+ can greatly improve the agility of a business, allowing developers to focus on efficiently troubleshooting bottlenecks rather than spending time identifying errors, because it shouldn't cost more time and money to monitor your apps than to run them."

Initially launched with a focus on the .NET framework, Stackify's APM+ will offer support to other development languages later this year.

Modern software design has fundamentally changed how we manage applications, causing many to turn to containers as the new virtual machine for resource management. As container adoption grows beyond stateless applications to stateful workloads, the need for persistent storage is foundational - something customers routinely cite as a top pain point. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Bill Borsari, Head of Systems Engineering at Datera, explored how organizations can reap the benefits of the cloud without losing performance as containers become the new paradigm.
