Cloud computing has widespread mainstream usage, yet when it comes to monitoring and management in the clouds, there are still a lot of limits on what can be monitored.
There are a number of offerings that tell you the overall health of each of the largest cloud platforms. When there are incidents, you can see some sort of description of the problems. What’s missing here? You. Your applications. Your slice of that cloud infrastructure is not being shown, just an overall macro view.
There are some products that monitor the utilization of each of your server instances from a memory & CPU perspective. They’ll even offer you access to an API where you can automatically spin up new server instances when you exceed memory or CPU thresholds. This is great for the cloud vendors to increase their revenue, but what does this do to help you?
What we deliver at AppFirst today is the visibility inside each instance that your applications are using. Now you can know the metrics inside and out about what component (process or set of processes) of your infrastructure is consuming which resources. We have heard from many of you and understand that you want to know the infrastructure consumption details per component, and you want enough detail to analyze for yourself whether there are opportunities for you to make changes (either in configuration or code) on your end rather than spawning volumes of new instances without knowing why.
Soon, we will also be able to provide you with automated awareness to response time issues with deterministic root cause details, pointing out not only the problem that’s been identified, but also where to go to solve it.
Knowing that there are such great potential benefits of cloud computing, we are here to provide you with the level of detail we know you need to manage your applications. You can realize the performance you want while leveraging the elasticity of the cloud.
