Leading APM solution now available with the Rackspace® Open Cloud

SAN FRANCISCO, Dec. 20, 2012 /PRNewswire/ -- AppDynamics Inc., the next-generation application performance management solution that simplifies the management of complex apps, announced today its availability on the Rackspace Open Cloud. AppDynamics appears in the Rackspace Cloud Tools Marketplace and offers an OpenStack® connector to allow customers to create rules for scaling the application based on performance metrics in the OpenStack interface.

Rackspace customers will be able to take advantage of AppDynamics' auto-scaling feature through its OpenStack connector. This feature will allow customers to create rules in OpenStack web interface to automatically provision and de-provision resources based on performance metrics from AppDynamics, such as response time and load.

"We feel that AppDynamics and its auto-scaling capabilities will help drive greater value for customers. This feature will allow customers to be much more proactive when it comes to dealing with application performance," said Ven Shanmugam, Senior Manager of Cloud Market Development at Rackspace. "AppDynamics' auto-scaling helps customers from having to worry about adding more resources when load increases – they can create rules for AppDynamics and OpenStack to do that for them."

"We're excited to work with Rackspace to provide an APM solution to their customers," said Stuart Horne, Vice President of Business Development at AppDynamics. "Rackspace is a dominant player in the PaaS space, and its customers are using it to build very complex and sophisticated applications. We think we can deliver an important service to these customers – we can deliver deep visibility into these applications, whether they're in the public cloud, the datacenter, or a mix of the two."
