Mission-critical applications are the lifeblood for every enterprise. At Apprenda, we know that deploying and running your apps reliably is a top priority. Therefore, we offer many ways to make that happen with our private Platform as a Service (PaaS).

But if you’re using a Platform as a Service to rapidly speed up development, how can you best monitor the health of your applications after they’re up and running? Enter New Relic, our newest integration partner. New Relic provides powerful, deep insights into how applications are performing and as of today, you’ll be able to use Apprenda and New Relic together.

“Apprenda’s integration with New Relic enables developers to gain valuable insights into the usage of their applications, empowering them to make smarter decisions based on real data,” Apprenda CEO Sinclair Schuller said. “Apprenda and New Relic help developers remain productive and maintain the SLA of their apps.”

With New Relic monitoring Apprenda applications, developers can:

  • Monitor multi-instance distributed applications in real time
  • Monitor how the application is interacting with the database and gain access to query latencies
  • Monitor performance metrics and the overall health of an application
  • Monitor Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) and define custom metrics that enable insight into the internal behavior of the application
  • Monitor how end users are using an app, locations from which they are accessing the app, latency in serving content, and what browsers users are using
  • Diagnose bottlenecks in an application
  • Receive proactive alerts when the application is falling behind its SLA

In a nutshell, the New Relic dashboard surfaces thousands of metrics and KPIs across your apps, helping you understand the story your data is trying to tell you. Apprenda and New Relic work together to help developers understand how the end users of an application are interacting with the app and the experience they receive throughout the day. More importantly, together Apprenda and New Relic help developers maintain the SLA of the application by leveraging capabilities like alerts, instance autoscaling, and high-availability:

Enhancing Apprenda applications to work with your standardized, corporate-wide APM tool is now simple with the power of Apprenda extensibility and bootstrap policies. To learn more about bootstrap policies, the Custom Bootstrapper, and how you can use them to incorporate APM into your applications, watch the video below:
