Access "Application performance management sets new goals"

Issue Overview

Modern Infrastructure - June 2014, Volume 3, Issue 6

Application performance management is taking advantage of open APIs and software as a service to focus on the end-user experience. That's a change from the APM of old, which only monitored servers and networks and instrumented application code.

There are a few ways that application performance management tools are getting at the end-user experience. They either generate synthetic load and transaction, then measure the application response, or, they instrument client code then measure the actual experience. In either case, end users benefit from improved load times and reduced error rates and downtime. The Healthcare.gov debacle showcased many potential user problems -- and when the "tech surge" team swept in, they deployed APM to maximum effect.

Also in this June issue of Modern Infrastructure: Take a look at some of the best ways to keep cloud costs down, and find out what object storage is, anyway, and why it's especially useful in the cloud era.  Access >>>
