New Solution delivers performance monitoring and application triage directly into Windows Azure Pack

BlueStripe Makes Distributed Applications Work

The BlueStripe Performance Center on Windows Azure Pack gives service providers and enterprise IT Operations teams a tremendous resource.

At the Microsoft TechEd Europe conference, BlueStripe Software announced the release of the new BlueStripe Performance Center for Windows Azure Pack. The BlueStripe Performance Center, a new part of BlueStripe’s award-winning FactFinder software, brings dynamic application tracking and performance monitoring to the built-in Windows Azure Pack management tools. Windows Azure Pack administrators and tenants alike now have a single view for managing application service delivery – including business service monitoring, hop-by-hop performance analysis and triage for distributed applications and their underlying components, all tied directly into the Azure Pack service management workflow.

The BlueStripe Performance Center extends Windows Azure Pack’s capabilities to provide unified business service monitoring and management. The Performance Center provides

  •     Live performance dashboards for applications and application tiers
  •     Dynamic application and dependency maps visualizing the virtual infrastructure in use
  •     Tight integration into Windows Azure Pack workflow allowing for seamless movement from analysis to remediation

The Performance Center can be configured to provide exactly the right level of capabilities for each end-user, so service providers can provide appropriate capabilities for their tenants.

With BlueStripe Performance Center working on Windows Azure Pack, systems administrators or application owners can start with the new performance dashboard which shows response time and dependency status for applications and application tiers. When a problem is identified, the administrator can jump immediately to a live application map that shows the entire application infrastructure with server and dependency roles as well as performance data for each component supporting the application. They can quickly identify the slow component, and drill in to solve the problem. The Performance Center provides bridges between the interconnected application and the underlying resources so the administrator can than move directly from slow applications to the Windows Azure Pack resource control for quick remediation.

“The BlueStripe Performance Center on Windows Azure Pack gives service providers and enterprise IT Operations teams a tremendous resource,” said Chris Neal, co-founder and CEO of BlueStripe Software. “Application context integrated into workflow is critical to the success of today’s IT Operations processes.”

“BlueStripe is bringing end-to-end application context to Windows Azure Pack clouds,” said Robert Reynolds, Principal Program Manager Lead for Windows Azure Pack, Microsoft. “With BlueStripe, Windows Azure Pack customers can offer application monitoring services to their users so they can monitor hosted applications across Azure Pack and Microsoft Azure.”

FactFinder automatically discovers, maps, and monitors all business transactions running within the data center and across the Cloud. FactFinder measures performance, hop-by-hop, everywhere that transactions go, across tiers, across platforms, and across architectures – even into virtual machines, public, private, and hybrid cloud, as well as third party services. When performance or availability problems occur, FactFinder follows the slow or hung transaction right to the problem component, and then drills down the server stack to determine why the problem occurred. The BlueStripe Performance Center brings FactFinder’s capabilities seamlessly into Windows Azure Pack.
