Affiliate Partnership Enhances Application Developer's Services, Offers Clients Greater Value

Many organizations come to us for custom Rails applications deployed onto EC2, and we want to give them the very best application monitoring and management tools, like RPM.

Atlantic Dominion Solutions (ADS), a leading developer of custom business applications, today announced an affiliate partnership with Rails performance management specialist New Relic. The move allows ADS to offer its clients the top monitoring tool for managing internal Ruby on Rails applications deployed onto "the cloud" (namely, the Amazon Web Services EC2 infrastructure).

New Relic's RPM provides deep, real-time visibility of an application's performance in a fully managed hosting situation without needing access to the server. Designed as a plug-in tool for Rails, RPM can easily be installed on an application in seconds for immediate monitoring and problem detection.

"Partnering with New Relic is great not just for ADS, but also for our clients," said CEO Robert Dempsey. "Many organizations come to us for custom Rails applications deployed onto EC2, and we want to give them the very best application monitoring and management tools, like RPM."

ADS uses Ruby on Rails to develop custom business applications that help companies improve internal processes and increase efficiency. To ensure these applications have the flexibility to scale on demand, ADS often deploys them onto EC2 via the Morph Application Platform. With deployment onto the cloud increasing, the company needed to offer clients a way to monitor the performance of apps' without accessing the server. RPM, Dempsey says, was the obvious solution.

"We're thrilled to have ADS as a charter member of our affiliate program," said Bill Lapcevic, vice president of business development at New Relic. "They have long been an innovator in Rails development, and RPM will help ensure their forward-thinking applications always run at optimal performance levels."

The partnership with New Relic is just the most recent step in ADS' ongoing efforts to expand its service offering. Earlier this year, the company rolled out the ADS Catalyst rapid prototyping service and an Adobe Flex interface development service, ADS Vision. Dempsey expects that momentum to continue throughout next year as well.

"Wherever there is an opportunity to solve business problems for our clients and provide new, valuable technology solutions, ADS will eagerly pursue it."
