LONDON — FutureStack — 24 May 2017 — Digital intelligence leader New Relic, Inc. (NYSE: NEWR) unveiled new capabilities to the New Relic Digital Intelligence Platform that will enable enterprises to have greater visibility into the performance of their applications and the dynamic infrastructure that they rely on. With the new Health Map, New Relic is bringing together the power of New Relic APM and New Relic Infrastructure to deliver a high-density view of applications and the infrastructure supporting those applications. By standardizing monitoring within a single cloud platform, customers will be able to work better together to pinpoint issues and optimize their dynamic cloud or hybrid environments, in particular those leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS).
A bird’s-eye view of large and complex environments. As enterprises adopt more scalable microservice architectures, it becomes more difficult to pinpoint performance issues within the application stack. New Relic’s new Health Map feature brings together insights on application and infrastructure performance into a single, prioritized view. This unified view enables operations and DevOps teams to quickly understand if the source of a performance issue is from the application code or in the infrastructure layer.
Integrated to support your AWS strategy. New Relic Infrastructure now boasts 20 out-of-the-box integrations to AWS services, including new integrations for Amazon Kinesis Firehose, Amazon Elasticsearch Service, Amazon Route 53, Amazon EC2 Container Service, and Amazon EC2 Container Registry. In addition, Billing and Cost Management features have been introduced, which will enable customers to monitor costs in real time and plan for the future. The breadth of New Relic’s integrations enable enterprises to effectively migrate, optimize, and scale the usage and data flow within AWS.
Extend New Relic Infrastructure to monitor any custom host. With New Relic Infrastructure's new SDK, system administrators and DevOps teams can now standardize the monitoring of custom services alongside dynamic infrastructure instances within the context of the applications that they support. This visibility can lead to these teams improving their efficiency in diagnosing and resolving problems by viewing all the relevant information from a single source.
“Enterprises are rapidly moving to dynamic infrastructure and scalable architectures so that they can move at the speed of the business. Our customers want a single monitoring platform, and New Relic is delivering end-to-end visibility and metrics that operations teams need to understand the health of all their applications, down to any host in their environment,“ said Jim Gochee, chief product officer, New Relic.
“Macquarie is in the middle of a transformational change, and determining how we deliver and monitor infrastructure services to support the university’s requirements, both now and in the future, will be key to our success. New Relic’s new Health Map provides us a single pane of glass view displaying both the status of our environment as well as the relationships between our applications and the infrastructure that supports them. With the flexibility to provide an applications perspective of the environment, applications and their related hosts or an infrastructure perspective, hosts and their related applications, the Health Map display caters for the needs of a diverse support team; assisting the Help desk, Infrastructure, Applications and Development teams providing the necessary information to manage and support a large number of diverse systems and applications,” said Gavin Wilson, infrastructure manager, Macquarie University, one of Australia’s leading public research universities.
“Historically, Spokeo has used lots of monitoring tools and we started consolidating our monitoring with New Relic because it gives us a holistic view of our applications and infrastructure. New Relic Infrastructure alerts us to server specific errors and the Health Map gives us the ability to understand our metrics in one dashboard. The integrations with AWS products have been pretty interesting to see and given us an automated way to pull in metrics in real time to understand the performance of those services in relation to the applications they support,” said Eric Liang, co-founder and chief information officer, Spokeo, a people search engine founded in California.
