There’s a lot of excitement and anticipation this week at New Relic as we open up the public beta for New Relic RPM for Java. This newest version of our product has the same application monitoring and diagnostic capabilities used by more than 2000 Ruby on Rails customers to manage 20,000 app instances. RPM for Java offers deep, transaction-level visibility into production applications including such powerful features as transaction tracing, database calls, error detection, Apdex scoring, and more.
And because it’s software as a service, RPM is perfect for managing apps in the Cloud or in dedicated server environments. In fact, more than 600 of New Relic’s current customers use RPM in either public or private clouds. New Relic CEO Lew Cirne commented today that “As organizations migrate their critical Java applications to cloud computing environments, it’s more important than ever that they gain visibility where none currently exists. We are excited to offer the very first service that provides 24×7 visibility into Java application performance and deep diagnostic capabilities for fast remediation and recovery. Our service-based solution offers enterprise-class capabilities in a low TCO, on demand model.”
This sentiment was shared by Amy Wohl, noted IT analyst and author of Succeeding at SaaS: Computing in the Cloud. “Since distributed web applications are particularly suited to cloud environments, we expect IT to find them an appealing solution over the next few years,” said Amy. “The IT operations team will need to consider an on-demand application management strategy that gives them visibility inside the Cloud, allowing them to maintain IT governance and a degree of control over application performance and availability, in all types of cloud environments.”
