The Enterprise Is Ready for the Cloud...

Recently, we here at AppDynamics have seen two major transformations in adoption of the public cloud. First is the adoption of the cloud for production workloads, and second is adoption of the cloud by large enterprises.

Transformation 1: From Dev/Test/QA to Production Workloads
Because dev/test cycles for applications have different capacity requirements at different times, the on-demand computing resources available through the cloud are ideally suited to serve these elastic requirements. But recently we’ve seen a significant transition by customers to run production workloads on AWS and other public clouds. Perhaps there was a trust element in the cloud that has taken some time to solidify. I suppose relentless price cuts in cloud don’t hurt either. But it seems clear that enterprises are embracing the cloud for production workloads.

Transformation 2: From Startups to Enterprises
First adopters of the cloud were primarily startups who did not want to (or could not) lay out the capital investment necessary to stand up their own datacenters. The cloud has afforded many startups the computing capacity, storage, and resources of a major datacenter without the upfront investment. This on-demand computing power broke down many barriers and enabled significant innovation. Now, the late majority — enterprises — are catching on and signing up for the cloud en masse. Not only are these enterprises adopting AWS for new development and innovation, but they are migrating existing applications from on-premises data centers to AWS — and using AppDynamics to help gather valuable pre- and post-migration data about their applications.

Expanded AppDynamics Support for AWS.

In support of these transformations, AppDynamics is making additional investments in AWS. First, we have released new capabilities to support additional AWS native services such as Amazon DynamoDB, Amazon SQS, and Amazon S3, adding to our existing support of Amazon EC2, Amazon CloudWatch, and Amazon RDS. AppDynamics now monitors more AWS native services, providing even greater visibility and control for your applications running on the AWS Cloud.

Second, because we want our customers and potential customers to be successful migrating to AWS, we have launched a special 60-day trial to help customers migrate on-premises production workloads to AWS. Using AppDynamics to instrument on-premises workloads as part of a pre-migration assessment, customers are able to draw accurate, real-time topology maps of their applications, and benchmark the performance of the application in its on-premises state prior to fork-lifting it to the cloud. This visibility gives the enterprise a clear picture of what components can and should be migrated, as well as providing demonstrable data about the actual performance of the existing application. With our unique “compare release” function, customers can visualize on a single screen the pre-migration and post-migration application architecture, as well as the performance of key application transactions.

Try AppDynamics for AWS and we are certain you will see that, like Nasdaq, OMX, and other enterprise customers, the visibility provided by AppDynamics is especially valuable when migrating a platform from your internal infrastructure to the AWS Cloud.

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.

Never mind that we might not know what the future holds for cryptocurrencies and how much values will fluctuate or even how the process of mining a coin could cost as much as the value of the coin itself - cryptocurrency mining is a hot industry and shows no signs of slowing down. However, energy consumption to mine cryptocurrency is one of the biggest issues facing this industry. Burning huge amounts of electricity isn't incidental to cryptocurrency, it's basically embedded in the core of "mini...
Every organization is facing their own Digital Transformation as they attempt to stay ahead of the competition, or worse, just keep up. Each new opportunity, whether embracing machine learning, IoT, or a cloud migration, seems to bring new development, deployment, and management models. The results are more diverse and federated computing models than any time in our history.

Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several l...
