DevOps and Developers Get Immediate Feedback on New Release Performance
Solingen, Germany and San Mateo, CA – August 15, 2019 – Instana, the leading provider of automated Application Performance Management (APM) solutions for dynamic microservice applications, announced application release tracking and feedback capabilities that make it the first APM solution to include automatic release tracking.
The new capabilities are part of Instana Pipeline Feedback™, an application delivery pipeline performance tracking and analytics solution, directly integrated with Instana’s automated APM solution. In addition to the new Pipeline Feedback system, today’s announcement covers specific new functionality:
- Automatic tracking and performance feedback of Application Releases
- Integration with Jenkins for automatic identification of new releases
“As application teams strive for higher velocity in their deployment processes, they require immediate feedback whenever changes occur,” said Pete Abrams, Instana co-founder and COO. “Instana Pipeline Feedback tracks and isolates application release performance, notifying developers and DevOps of issues within seconds.”
Pipeline Feedback is included with Instana’s automated APM solution that maps, visualizes and manages microservice applications, delivering the actionable data that application teams need to provide high quality applications. The new CI/CD process management capabilities are included at no additional cost.
Instana’s automated Application Performance Monitoring (APM) solution discovers application service components and application infrastructure, including Jenkins, Kubernetes, and Docker. The tool automatically deploys monitoring sensors for each part of the application technology stack and traces all application requests – without requiring any human configuration or even application restarts. The solution detects changes in the application environment in real-time, adjusting its own models and visualizing the changes and impacts to performance in seconds.
For deployment teams, the full system is a powerful tool to understand the quality of new software deployments. Whenever an official release is deployed, Jenkins notifies Instana Pipeline Feedback, which will isolate each new service or piece of code, provide Instana performance reports, and deliver a comparison of service and application performance and health, compared to the previous release.
Like other Instana capabilities, Pipeline Feedback is automatic and provides actionable data in seconds – providing DevOps and Developers the immediate feedback they need to know that new releases are performing as expected. The new functionality is being showcased at the JenkinsWorld / DevOps World Conference. Learn more at instana.com.
