On April 23rd, come to panel discussion with New Relic CEO Lew Cirne by day, rock out at private party with special guest by night

San Francisco - April 17, 2012

New Relic, Inc., the SaaS-based cloud application performance management provider, announced today that over 20,000 companies now use New Relic for managing the performance of their mission-critical application environments. This significant milestone demonstrates New Relic’s incredibly rapid growth and to celebrate it in style, New Relic is hosting a private party for RailsConf 2012 attendees on April 23 with free food, drinks and a live concert featuring a very special guest. On the same day, prior to the party event, New Relic CEO Lew Cirne will host a panel discussion with some of today’s leading organizations, who are building and maintaining Rails apps at massive scale. RailsConf is the largest official conference dedicated to everything Ruby on Rails. Keynotes, sessions, tutorials and events will be held from April 23 – 25 in Austin, TX.

Serving over 20,000 customers, monitoring over 400,000 application instances and collecting over 40 billion metrics a day, New Relic’s SaaS application performance management (APM) solution has been adopted as a standard by leading organizations around the world. These companies trust New Relic to provide essential visibility into real user experiences, server resources, and application performance for their Ruby, Python, PHP, Java and .NET web applications in cloud, physical and hybrid environments. Having launched the product in 2008 with initial support for Ruby on Rails, New Relic is particularly excited to celebrate its birthday and its 20,000-customer milestone with the Rails community at RailsConf 2012.

New Relic invites RailsConf attendees to:
  • A Blowout Birthday Bash (Monday, April 23: 7pm)
    Join New Relic for free drinks, free food and a live musical performance by a very special guest. This private party, co-sponsored by Blue Box Group and Pivotal Labs is for conference attendees only, so be sure to bring your conference badge.
  • A Panel Discussion: New Relic CEO Lew Cirne, Groupon, Zendesk, Fanzter, and Uken (Monday, April 23 10:30am)
    Websites often need to manage millions of unique visitors a month, mobile sites, unexpected traffic bursts and seasonality. Don’t miss New Relic founder Lew Cirne and fellow experts from Groupon, Zendesk, Fanzter, and Uken as they discuss the ups and downs of scaling massive websites in the panel “Not a Vendor Pitch! Real World Rails Apps at Massive Scale."

New Relic launched its leading application management tool at RailsConf in 2008 and since then we've come a long way as both a tools provider and a disruptive force in this industry,” said Lew Cirne, New Relic founder and CEO. “We would not be where we are today without the full support of the Rails community and we are excited to be with them at RailsConf 2012. And what better way to say “thank you” than free food, drinks and rock’n’roll?”
