New Relic’s SaaS–delivered solution collects over 60 Billion performance metrics daily, totaling 5TB of data, making New Relic the largest big data repository ever built for application performance analysis.

Supporting Quotes

"Key transactions is another example of New Relic keeping our original promise to our customers, who are tired of an on-premise patchwork of disparate monitoring solutions that can be prohibitively expensive to many businesses. By offering this critical capability in our software as a service solution, we are delivering an advanced feature that is directly tied to monitoring the health of the business. It is our mission to make our customers more effective in pinpointing and preventing errors in live production web environments." Lew Cirne, Founder and CEO of New Relic.

"As the complexity of today’s web applications increase, it becomes more and more challenging for IT organizations to assess how individual events are impacting important applications and user experiences. Business transaction monitoring (BTM) allows IT teams to quickly focus on the most critical errors and alerts and maintain mission critical end-to-end service levels. The availability of an affordable, SaaS-based BTM capability will benefit many large and small businesses that do no have the internal skills or budget to deploy more traditional on-premise solutions." Mary Johnston Turner, Research Vice President, Enterprise Systems Management Software, IDC.

The new user interface is available today and automatically upgraded in all New Relic editions. The key transactions feature is available to New Relic Pro users.
