Cisco has announced the release of AppDynamics Cloud, a cloud-native observability platform for modern applications built on increasingly complex, distributed architectures and services.
Cisco AppDynamics Cloud enables the delivery of exceptional digital experiences by massively correlating telemetry data from any cloud environment. It employs cloud-native observability to address application performance issues via business context and insight-driven actions.
Liz Centoni, EVP, Chief Strategy Officer, GM of Applications “AppDynamics Cloud delivers power and usability in a single, intuitive interface. It puts the focus where it needs to be—on 360-degree visibility and insights, and the ability to take action that leads to extraordinary application experiences every time. Built from the ground up with cloud-native observability, AppDynamics Cloud is about real outcomes, so you can fix issues when they arise—or even before they happen—and ensure digital services offer exactly what users want.”
AppDynamics Cloud improves business outcomes and customer experiences by continuously optimizing cloud-native applications. Intelligent operations accelerate the detection and resolution of performance issues before they have an impact on the business or the brand. Continuous data integrations with OpenTelemetry standards and technology partnerships with cloud solutions and providers provide investment protection.
The platform facilitates collaboration among teams such as DevOps, site reliability engineers (SREs), and other key business stakeholders to achieve common goals such as service-level objectives (SLOs) and organizational KPIs. Although many businesses still use traditional applications to manage their mission-critical and revenue-generating systems, modern business apps are more frequently created using DevOps initiatives and are required to support distributed architectures and services. This pandemic-accelerated trend has sparked an end-to-end experience revolution among consumers and end-users, with hybrid work adding exponential momentum.
To provide the consistent, dependable digital experiences that consumers and end-users now expect, IT teams must monitor and manage a dynamic set of application dependencies across a mix of containers, infrastructure, microservices, and APIs using home-grown IT stacks, multiple clouds, security solutions, and SaaS services. In this vastly complex and dynamic ecosystem, traditional monitoring approaches fail.
AppDynamics Cloud ingests the flood of metrics, events, logs, and traces (MELT) generated in this environment—including network, databases, storage, containers, security, and cloud services—to make sense of the current state of the entire IT stack to the end-user. Then, actions can be taken to reduce costs, increase transaction revenue, and secure user and organizational data.
