SolarWinds Starts Testing Unified Application and Cloud Infrastructure Monitoring Tool

MSPs and other IT and DevOps professionals are invited to beta test AppOptics, which combines SolarWinds’ TraceView application performance monitoring solution and Librato, a cloud infrastructure monitoring company Solarwinds purchased in early 2015.

SolarWinds this week launched a beta of a converged application performance monitoring (APM) and infrastructure monitoring tool.

AppOptics combines SolarWinds’ TraceView APM and Librato, a cloud infrastructure monitoring company it purchased in early 2015.

The unified platform is designed to make it easier to monitor complex modern applications and distributed infrastructure, while eliminating the need for multiple monitoring solutions.

“The era of cloud and digitalization is driving exponential application growth,” Christoph Pfister, executive vice president for products at SolarWinds, said in a statement. “Applications are now the prime medium by which customers experience a brand, making uptime and end-user experience more critical than ever.

“Still, application and infrastructure monitoring often take place in separate silos which is counterproductive to the remediation process.”

“We designed AppOptics to provide comprehensive visibility needed for faster application-centric troubleshooting,” Pfister’s statement continued. “Now, customers can solve problems and improve performance across the application stack, all in an easy-to-use, as-a-service platform that delivers powerful results.”

Features include:

  • Tracing and visualization of application bottlenecks
  • Broad APM language support with auto instrumentation
  • Easy-to-use infrastructure monitoring that leverages large open community
  • Converged dashboards, alerting, and management for APM and infrastructure monitoring.

SolarWinds provides IT management software to MSPs and other professionals in IT and DevOps.

The AppOptics beta is already available to select customers.

Others interested in trying the solution for free can sign up at the beta release site.
