Cloudscaling announced on Monday a partnership with New Relic in order to provide real-time application performance monitoring on its Open Cloud System cloud infrastructure.
Developers can use New Relic to ensure their applications are running properly in hybrid cloud environments. For example, when OCS is the on-premise infrastructure and AWS is the public infrastructure, developers can see from a single view if their applications are performing well on both deployments.
Cloudscaling customers will receive New Relic Standard for free, which includes availability monitoring, alerting and notification, as well as real-user and application response time, throughput and breakdown by layer, according to the announcement.
Customers will also have access to performance data and analytics, as well as be provided with API access.
Application performance is one of the main drivers of cloud adoption, and being able to monitor applications in hybrid cloud environments is certainly appealing to developers as hybrid cloud becomes the dominant cloud deployment over the next few years. With cloud computing accounting for the majority of new IT spend by 2016, Gartner says that by the end of 2017, nearly half of large enterprise will have hybrid cloud deployments.
“New Relic and Cloudscaling are expanding options for AWS users by giving them the ability to monitor application performance in both environments, AWS and Open Cloud System,” Bill Lapcevic, vice president of business development at New Relic said. “For customers building a hybrid cloud environment, that’s critical, especially when workloads have hard requirements for performance and latency.”
“The partnership with New Relic is a powerful example of how the ecosystem surrounding Open Cloud System is expanding,” Adam Waters, COO and co-founder of Cloudscaling said. “Customers want a community of tools and resources to deploy Open Cloud System in an ever-expanding set of production scenarios, and application monitoring is an essential piece of the puzzle. New Relic not only delivers that for our customers, they make it easy.”
Recently, Cloudscaling announced the departure of former CEO Michael Grant, and began the process of finding a new CEO with experience in leading B2B cloud product companies. CTO Randy Bias is currently acting as interim CEO.
