Cisco announced the launch of AppDynamics Cloud at Cisco Live, the premier networking and security event. AppDynamics Cloud enables the delivery of exceptional digital experiences by correlating telemetry data from any cloud environment at massive scale. It uses cloud-native observability to remediate application performance issues with business context and insights-driven actions.
“AppDynamics Cloud delivers power and usability in a single, intuitive interface. It puts the focus where it needs to be—on 360-degree visibility and insights, and the ability to take action that leads to extraordinary application experiences every time,” said Liz Centoni, EVP, Chief Strategy Officer, GM of Applications.
AppDynamics Cloud improves business outcomes and customer experiences by continuously optimizing cloud-native applications. With intelligent operations, it accelerates the detection and resolution of performance issues before they impact the business or the brand. Continuous data integrations with OpenTelemetry™ standards, as well as technology partnerships with cloud solutions and providers, provide investment protection.
The platform enables collaboration among teams such as DevOps, site reliability engineers (SREs), and other key business stakeholders in order to achieve common goals such as service-level objectives (SLOs) and organizational KPIs. While many organizations continue to use traditional applications to run mission-critical and revenue-generating systems, modern business apps are increasingly being built using DevOps initiatives and must support distributed architectures and services. This pandemic-accelerated trend has sparked an end-to-end experience revolution among consumers and end users, with hybrid work adding exponential momentum.
To provide the consistent, dependable digital experiences that consumers and end users now expect, IT teams must monitor and manage a dynamic set of application dependencies across a mix of infrastructure, microservices, containers, and APIs using home-grown IT stacks, multiple clouds, SaaS services, and security solutions. Traditional monitoring approaches fail in this vastly complex and dynamic ecosystem.
AppDynamics Cloud seamlessly consumes the deluge of metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) generated in this environment—including network, databases, storage, containers, security, and cloud services—to understand the current state of the entire IT stack all the way to the end user. Then, actions can be taken to reduce costs, increase transaction revenue, and secure user and organizational data.
“Built from the ground up with cloud-native observability, AppDynamics Cloud is about real outcomes, so you can fix issues when they arise—or even before they happen—and ensure digital services offer exactly what users want,” said Centoni.
Current AppDynamics customers can upgrade to AppDynamics Cloud and continue to use their existing APM agents, or feed both solutions concurrently. AppDynamics Cloud supports Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud-native, managed Kubernetes environments, with future expansion to Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform, and other cloud providers.
