San Francisco - August 18, 2009

New Relic, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service (SaaS) provider of application performance management solutions, today announced the opening of a public beta program for the latest version of its popular RPM product. The new version can be used to monitor, troubleshoot and tune Java web applications in addition to those developed on Ruby on Rails. RPM, used by more than 2,000 customers, is the industry’s first Application Performance Management (APM) product to be offered as a service, making it ideal for managing applications in the Cloud or in the datacenter.

"More than 600 of our customers use RPM in either public or private clouds," said Lewis Cirne, founder and CEO of New Relic. "As organizations migrate their critical Java applications to cloud computing environments, it’s more important than ever that they gain visibility where none currently exists. We are excited to offer the very first service that provides 24x7 visibility into Java application performance and deep diagnostic capabilities for fast remediation and recovery. Our service-based solution offers enterprise-class capabilities in a low TCO, on demand model."

"The IT operations team will need to consider an on-demand application management strategy that gives them visibility inside the Cloud, allowing them to maintain IT governance and a degree of control over application performance and availability, in all types of cloud environments."
