Announcing AppDynamics 2014 Spring Release

Expanded support for a wide range of applications and frameworks

AppDynamics is excited to announce the  2014 Spring Release of the AppDynamics platform which continues our tradition of disruptive innovation and extends our leadership position through:

  • Expanded support for a wide range of applications and frameworks including Java, .Net, PHP, Scala, and now Node.js applications

  • Launches mobile application performance monitoring to include end to end visibility across iOS and Android

  • Launches support for Big Data + NoSQL databases with MongoDB and extensions for Cassandra, Couchbase, Hbase, and Redis

  • Launches Cloud partnerships with Azure, Amazon Web Services, Pivotal, and OpenShift by RedHat

  • Delivers over 50 new integrations and partnerships with infrastructure, and other 3rd party solutions including NetApp, Keynote, ServiceNow, Mulesoft, TypeSafe, Apica, Splunk, Boundary, Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Engine

“We chose AppDynamics because they are the proven leader in application intelligence,” said Ravi Nekkalapu, director of technology and infrastructure architecture, Wyndham Hotel Group. “The latest improvements including enhanced support for apps built in Java, .NET and PHP and brand new support for apps built in Node.js and Scala provide us better and deeper visibility into all our real time production applications and allows us to better manage and improve application performance 24/7. With AppDynamics Spring 2014 Release the company strengthens its leadership position in application performance management.”

At AppDynamics we strive to deliver an intuitive user experience that is useful not only for developers and operations professionals, but also the executive team as well. In this release we have improved the user experience of application flow maps to be more scalable for complex applications:

We provide the best APM solution in the market for Java, .NET, PHP, and now support Node.js, Scala, iOS and Android. The extensive new capabilities allow organizations to proactively monitor, manage and analyze the most complex software environments. All of this happens in real time, in production, giving increased visibility, understanding, and control across applications, infrastructure and user experience. By eliminating blind spots, IT can resolve issues faster reducing downtime costs.

AppDynamics Spring 2014 Release features expanded support for the Java ecosystem including support for the Scala language and the Typesafe Reactive Platform. Get complete visibility into applications built on top of Play/Akka:

“Our new partnership with AppDynamics provides end to end visibility into production applications running on the Typesafe Reactive Platform. With AppDynamics’ unique support of Scala, Akka and Play, developers will be able to build reactive applications in record time, troubleshoot issues in real-time, and most importantly be certain that every user has a great experience with their application,” said Dave Martin, Vice president of Worldwide Sales and Business Development, Typesafe

AppDynamics is now available for mobile apps running on iOS and Android. Through AppDynamics Mobile APM you can get complete visibility into the end user experience of your iOS and Android users globally in real-time.

  • Crash Reporting – Understand the root cause of application crashes and hangs

  • Network Request Snapshots with server-side correlation  - Get end to end visibility from the mobile device all the way to multiple tiers on the server-side

  • Device & User Analytics – Analytics on device, carriers, OS, and application versions

AppDynamics Mobile APM features crash reports and network request snapshots to get to the root cause of performance problems whether on the mobile device or the server-side.

AppDynamics Spring 2014 Release features beta support for Node.js applications with support for all the core AppDynamics features users know and love including auto-discovery of business transactions, dynamic baselining, application flow maps  and transaction/process snapshots.

Understand exactly what is happening in your Node.js applications with process snapshots and support for PostgreSQL, MySQL, MongoDB, Riak, Cassandra, Memcache and Redis backends:

AppDynamics for Java continues to be the best APM solution in the market with new support for Google Web Toolkit, JAX-RS 2.0, Apache Synapse, Apple WebObjects. We have released Service Endpoints which enables customers with large SOA environments can define specific service points to track metrics and get associated business transaction information which helps service owners monitor and troubleshoot their own specific services within a large set of services.

AppDynamics for .NET continues to be the best APM solution in the market with new support for MVC5, RabbitMQ, and improved Windows Azure integration. We introduced support for async calls and added waterfall visualization to easily identify problems in your async applications:

AppDynamics for PHP is now available for PHP 5.2-5.5 with distributed transaction correlation. We introduced support for command line scripts, Redis and RabbitMQ backends.

AppDynamics End User Experience management has been greatly improved with client-side waterfall timing in browser snapshots and server -side correlation.

With the new waterfall client-side timings you get granular insight into performance on both the client-side and the server-side:

AppDynamics’ Spring 2014 Release includes new support for NoSQL Big Data stores including MongoDB and Hadoop, Couchbase and Cassandra.  NoSQL databases are growing in popularity because they allow for design simplicity, horizontal scaling and greater control over availability. AppDynamics for databases now supports MongoDB natively and can auto-detect replica sets and sharded clusters, monitor all queries and provides a drill down to query executions:

“Together with AppDynamics and MongoDB, organizations can now leverage application performance management solutions to gain further insight into their MongoDB-based applications. This partnership allows users end-to-end visibility for optimal performance in production, an important feature for companies as they scale their MongoDB deployments,” said Matt Asay, Vice president of Marketing and Business Development, MongoDB

AppDynamics formed strategic alliances with leading web infrastructure companies like NetApp, MongoDB, TypeSafe, and MuleSoft. The AppSphere community delivered over 50+ new extensions providing integrations to Keynote, ServiceNow, Splunk and Apica. Use our machine agent to track, graph, and correlate metrics from your underlying infrastructure (databases, caches, queues, hardware, etc.) in the AppDynamics metrics browser.

Enhanced support for major cloud providers including Amazon Web Services, Windows Azure, Pivotal, and OpenShift by RedHat. Monitor infrastructure and costs with Amazon Web Services and Google Compute Engine. AppDynamics Amazon Web Services extension allows users to integrate CloudWatch into AppDynamics and have richer metrics around their Amazon cloud applications by combining both our own application metrics along with ones from CloudWatch. For example, by looking at CloudWatch’s billing metrics you can analyze the costs associated with various levels of performance.

“With our Spring 2014 Release, we are providing organizations enterprise-wide visibility into the performance and behavior of the applications that drive their software-defined business,” said Jyoti Bansal, founder and CEO of AppDynamics. “Once again, we are innovating with a new and enhanced set of capabilities that apply intelligence to instantly identify performance bottlenecks, anomalies, enable automatic fixes and continuously measure business impact. We do this in real time, in production, with cloud or on-premise deployment flexibility. This goes way beyond monitoring—it’s true application intelligence.”

We released far too many features and improvements to cover in one blog post so stay tuned for deep dives into what is new in Java & .NET, PHP & Node.js, and Mobile & End User Monitoring.

You know you need the cloud, but you’re hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You’re looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you’re concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies.
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation.
