Leading APM Solution for Orchestrated Containers Now Able to Monitor Across Physical, Virtual and Cloud Environments.
Chicago – January 29, 2020 – Instana, the leading provider of automatic Application Performance Management (APM) solutions for microservice applications, today announced new capabilities for monitoring the VMware vSphere Suite, as well as applications running on vSphere infrastructure.
Known for the ability to correlate infrastructure and application performance metrics and deliver actionable information to all stakeholders from development to operations, Instana’s latest release includes the ability to discover, map and monitor components running on VMware’s vSphere suite. Like the other supported infrastructure components Instana supports, application performance metrics are analyzed along with the new vSphere metrics.
“As organizations evolve their application environment to leverage the latest advancements in application and infrastructure, it’s critical that their operational tools provide the broadest flexibility and intelligent analysis, regardless of the infrastructure chosen,” said Chris Farrell, Technical Director and APM Strategist at Instana. “The addition of vSphere support to our cloud, container, orchestration and microservice platform monitoring allows users to understand how different architectural and infrastructure choices impact overall service levels and application performance.”
The vSphere announcement continues Instana’s legacy of excellence in monitoring applications and their underlying infrastructure together. Whether organizations run hosts physically, virtually or in the cloud, Instana enables them to quickly and easily see exactly how applications are performing and how the infrastructure is impacting those applications. With the ability to trace distributed requests end-to-end, the ability to see any and every possible infrastructure stack provides a complete picture of performance to Instana users.
Unlike other APM solutions, Instana fully automates the entire lifecycle of application monitoring including application discovery and mapping, monitoring sensor and agent deployment, and application infrastructure health monitoring. Whenever an application or infrastructure change occurs within dynamic applications, Instana recognizes the change in real time, instantly adjusting its application service maps, monitoring thresholds and health dashboards.
“Application migration is one particular use case for which Instana’s broad infrastructure and architectural support are a perfect combination to add value,” continued Farrell. “Whether migrating from monolith to microservices, physical to virtual hosts, or private to hybrid clouds, Instana’s automated discovery and performance monitoring provides the absolute quickest way to capture and compare different deployment options.”
The vSphere support and monitoring capabilities are available today as part of Instana’s automated APM solution. Learn more about Instana and their application monitoring solution at https://instana.com.
