iTrinegy's AppQoS Now offers Network Profiling and SLA 'Response Time' Management

CAMBRIDGE, England and RENO Nevada, September 13, 2012 /PRNewswire/ --

Organisations making changes to their IT environment (be it virtualization, consolidation, hosting, cloud moves, new app deployment etc.) will benefit from AppQoS's Network Profiling capability which enables customers to profile metrics of application response times, a vital KPI (Key Performance Indicator) in any SLA as well as allowing a full assessment of network usage by the applications and users, prior to making any move to a cloud based, or virtualized environment.

AppQoS now measures response times (network and application), profiles the network accurately looking at the usage of the network by applications users, servers, video-conferencing, VoIP etc. In  this way organizations can fully understand exactly what network requirements there are prior to any change and thus, exactly what will be needed to make it work in the new environment.

Why is this important?  Companies inevitably, for financial reasons or otherwise, continue to make changes to their IT environment, doing everything from virtualization, to data center consolidation through cloud, including "DIY cloud" (i.e. my own cloud) to externally hosted cloud. But how can a company ensure the success of this without first knowing what they are currently delivering both in terms of response times and network usage?

Frank Puranik, Product Director advises "Response Time KPIs are a key "component" within any SLA, but many companies have no idea what their current application response times are. Without knowing current response times, prior to making changes, how can you be certain you are getting the response times you want after the change?" Frank continues "Even when there is no formal SLA document containing well defined response time and availability there is an unspoken SLA and response time expectation.  You know that the unspoken SLA is broken when a user phones up and says the service is bad. So, no matter whether you have a written or unspoken SLA, you need to understand your response times. Knowing your own current usage prior to any move or changes should also be a no-brainer, because at the end of the day your users will want their application performance to be at least as good as it was, before any changes".

AppQoS is iTrinegy's award-winning application performance monitoring and management technology and has a unique architecture, making it incredibly scalable with an ability to monitor and manage through alerting systems, informing when a service threshold drops below an agreed Response time SLA, or when something starts to go wrong.  Real-time graphical reporting and visualization of key performance indicators provides customers with a clear view of any monitored service status. Enterprises and Service and Cloud Providers who need to manage application performance management (APM) across multiple network segments will benefit greatly from its unique clustering capability, as it delivers real-time, passive network full-stream monitoring, analysis, reporting and health metrics for every network transaction over each monitored network segment, providing a total aggregated end-to-end APM solution.

AppQoS delivers visibility of network traffic, networked application performance, bandwidth contention and end-user experience and has unmatched deployment, operational flexibility and scalability.

Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Longer function invocation times (referred to as cold starts) become very important to track, because they impact the response time of the service and will impose additional cost. Additionally, the transition to smaller individual components (much like breaking a monolithic application into microservices) results in a simpler deployment model, but makes the system as a whole increasingly complex.
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements

At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
