Today we announced that in 2009 New Relic quadrupled our customer base and grown revenue more than 200%. Last year’s growth was fueled by key partnerships, the delivery of new product features and capabilities, and the addition of hundreds of customer organizations that chose New Relic to manage the performance of their applications. Many thanks to companies such as American Express Publishing, AT&T Interactive, Getty Images, Gilt Groupe, Intuit, Juniper Networks, and LinkedIn, who all became customers this past year.
In 2009 New Relic formed alliances with several key cloud infrastructure and platform vendors. These partnerships contributed substantially to our growth and we are pleased to have worked closely with partners such as Amazon Web Services, Blue Box Group, Engine Yard, GoGrid, GigaSpaces, Heroku, Red Hat, RightScale, Stax Networks, Sun Microsystems and VMWare.
And of course, adoption of RPM–both the Ruby and Java agents–was a significant factor in our growth last year. We delivered several releases of RPM in 2009, offering key features such as:
- Deployment management; integration with Twitter, Lighthouse and Campfire; Custom Views, Capacity Analysis and implementation of the Apdex standard.
- RPM for Java, with the architectural work in place to support any other web application language/platform in the future.
- A complete redesign of RPM’s user interface with dramatic improvements in speed and usability.
- The industry’s first on-demand, hourly billing option
Bernd Harzog, noted industry analyst with The Virtualization Practice, said today “The positive momentum of companies like New Relic and the organizations that they have partnered with reflect the significant shift that we are seeing in business computing today. This past year showed us that the economics of cloud computing are extremely compelling and for those organizations that have not yet deployed, it is not a question of if, but of when to begin migrating their applications. In 2010 we’ll see the pace of change quicken and increasing demand for tools that allow companies to develop, deploy, and manage applications in cloud environments.”
