New Relic, Inc., the SaaS-based cloud application performance management today announced that has joined the OpenStack™ community, a global collaboration of developers and technologists producing the open standard cloud-computing platform for both public and private clouds. Organizations deploying web applications on OpenStack can use New Relic to automatically monitor web apps in production and proactively identify and eliminate potential bottlenecks.
"We are witnessing first hand the accelerating adoption of the cloud and many of our customers and partners are taking full advantage of open platforms like OpenStack," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic's vice president of business development. "Having a performance monitoring solution that deploys in minutes on OpenStack, is easy to use, and has been proven effective on OpenStack provides a huge benefit for organizations that want to ensure application performance and scalability. We are thrilled to be joining OpenStack’s growing community of cloud leaders."
With over 140 participating companies, OpenStack is building an expert community that is shaping the future of cloud computing. OpenStack is an open source project that strives to deliver standards-based solutions for all types of clouds by being simple to implement, massively scalable, and feature rich. The OpenStack technology consists of a series of interrelated projects delivering various cloud infrastructure components, including compute, storage and networking.
"As the OpenStack community continues to grow rapidly, we are pleased to see the addition of solution providers like New Relic who, together, are providing a robust ecosystem of tools that make OpenStack platform easier to adopt and manage," said Mark Collier, VP of Marketing & Business Development at Rackspace.
New Relic works automatically with the OpenStack Platform, enabling app deployment teams to monitor the health and availability of web applications from the user experience, through the infrastructure, down to the application line of code. Additionally, New Relic has tested its solution on the OpenStack-based HP Cloud Services private beta and has successfully deployed and monitored an application on that platform.
Organizations deploying applications on OpenStack can simply sign up for New Relic, follow the two-minute implementation process and begin monitoring and managing web application performance.
