San Francisco - June 7, 2012

New Relic, Inc., the SaaS-based cloud application performance management provider, today announced rapid deployment of application performance monitoring (APM) on Windows Azure. Windows Azure customers can now get New Relic Standard free of charge, available in the Windows Azure Marketplace, the one-stop shop for premium data and applications. Windows Azure customers can use New Relic’s service to monitor, troubleshoot and tune their production business-critical web applications.

Windows Azure is an open and flexible cloud platform that enables development teams to quickly build, deploy and manage applications across a global network of Microsoft-managed datacenters. Organizations can build applications using any language, tool or framework and integrate public cloud applications with their existing IT environment.

"Windows Azure allows developers to quickly and easily build and run highly available applications," said Helene Love Snell, director, Server and Tools Business, Microsoft. "New Relic provides deep visibility into application performance to help organizations ensure their apps are delivering at the highest standard of application performance and availability."

"New Relic and Windows Azure share a very strong commitment to providing organizations with the tools to build, deploy and maintain their business-critical applications," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic's Vice President of Business Development. "Together, we enable teams to focus on building the next great app instead of scouring lines of code for errors or worrying about infrastructure."
