Software analytics company New Relic, Inc. (NYSE:NEWR) announced today Dedalus, a Brazilian cloud services broker and the only Amazon Web Services (AWS) Premier Consulting Partner headquartered in Latin America, has migrated more than 100 companies to the cloud with the New Relic Software Analytics Platform. A specialist in cloud migration, Dedalus relies on New Relic exclusively to provide visibility for the shift in moving to and running applications in the cloud: a focus on the management of the application, as opposed to the infrastructure.
Among the companies Dedalus has successfully migrated to AWS with New Relic include Kroton, Renault, Dow, Sistemas Seguros, Vagas.com and Kidzania. Dedalus customers have reported between 25 and 75 percent savings in moving their applications to the cloud.
From its early days as a systems integrator and hosting provider to their more recent focus on enabling cloud computing, Dedalus’ mission has been consistent: helping people use technology better. Realizing this goal for their customers who are migrating to the cloud can be a daunting task, but in partnership with New Relic, Dedalus aims to reduce customer angst about migration projects by providing visibility within their application throughout the project: before, during, and after the move to AWS. With New Relic, Dedalus is able to go beyond monitoring the application’s performance and preparing it for migration by:
- Enabling Dedalus to automate the management of applications, thereby reducing the need to add new staff, which is more economical for customers;
- Identifying long-standing bugs in software that may have been previously unknown because the focus was on the health of the infrastructure rather than the performance of the application itself; and
- Leveraging the strengths the cloud offers to develop new security strategies for the application.
“Thanks to tools like AWS and New Relic, what Dedalus can do in terms of technology, quality, and results is far beyond what we were able to do in the past,” said Mauricio Fernandes, president of Dedalus. “By partnering with New Relic, our customers are saving money and we’re delivering them better technology and quality of services.”
“New Relic’s partnership with Dedalus has been so exciting and successful because of our shared value of making software better for people,” said John Gray, SVP Business Development at New Relic. “When moving to the cloud, we see it as imperative that customers have the visibility into the performance of their applications at each stage of the migration and on an on-going basis. New Relic helps Dedalus customers move to the cloud with confidence and we believe our cloud-based architecture is the ideal solution for managing applications in the cloud.”
