Leading PHP Hosting and Management Vendors Team with New Relic to Provide On-Demand Web Application Management in the Cloud or in the Datacenter

Addition of RPM’s on-demand monitoring and tuning capabilities to leading platforms enhances managed cloud offerings and drives customer success

San Francisco, California — December 8, 2010 — New Relic, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management (APM) solutions, today announced that the leading PHP cloud platform and management vendors are bundling New Relic RPM, making it available to their customers as its solution for managing the performance of PHP web applications. The list of vendors includes Blue Box Group, cloudControl, Joyent, Morphlabs, Network Redux, and PHP Fog. The addition of New Relic’s PHP web application monitoring and tuning capabilities to these leading platforms creates an unparalleled set of solutions for deploying and maintaining superior-performing applications in the cloud or in the datacenter. Additionally, with shared visibility into customer application performance, these vendors’ support teams can use RPM to collaboratively troubleshoot and tune application performance.

New Relic RPM is an on-demand web application performance management solution that offers 24x7 visibility and code-level diagnostics for web applications deployed on traditional dedicated infrastructures, or in private and public clouds. RPM for PHP monitors overall application response time and throughput including memcache, database and external services. It provides deep visibility into individual web transactions and database calls to MySQL, PostgresSQL, and any PDO-supported database all the way down to SQL statements. This enables application teams to better ensure superior service for PHP applications and frameworks such as Drupal, Wordpress, Zend as well as their proprietary web apps.

“New Relic is grateful to the PHP community, including leading cloud platform and management vendors with whom we are partnering, for its enthusiastic response to our support for monitoring PHP web application performance,” said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic’s vice president of business development. “We look forward to working closely with these companies to help organizations build, deploy, and manage their business-critical PHP-based apps.”
