Lose It! Delivers a Scalable and Compelling Weight Loss Experience with New Relic and CloudBees

LoseIt! logoOne of the key tenets of our company’s vision has been to partner with leading PaaS providers to make it easier for them and their customers to gain application-level visibility in the cloud, and in turn, deploy and maintain high-performance apps. That’s why it was a no-brainer for us to partner with CloudBees, a leading platform service provider for Java apps, in June 2011.

Lose It!, the popular web and mobile weight loss app from FitNow, has helped users around the world lose over 11 million pounds collectively. The high volume site handles thousands of writes per minute and tens of thousands of reads per minute, sometimes as much as 25,000 transactions per minute. In order to ensure they can rapidly scale to match demand while maintaining peak application performance, FitNow relies on CloudBees and New Relic to deploy, monitor and manage their Lose It! app.

CloudBees RUN@cloud provides FitNow with the automation, transparency and flexibility they need to streamline deployment and focus on delivering a great application, instead of dealing with infrastructure and deployment headaches. New Relic provides FitNow with real time visibility into Lose It!’s application performance and enables them to track server performance and analytics, as well as analyze requests to see how the frontend, application and network contribute to response times, allowing them to fine tune application servers in the cloud when necessary.

As part of our partnership, all CloudBees customers get a free New Relic Standard account to monitor their apps in real time, track end user experiences, and diagnose and eliminate bottlenecks. If you’re a CloudBees customer, sign up today.
