Because it monitors web application behavior and customer experiences in real time, New Relic RPM can play a central role in adapting to peak season changes by supporting decisions about performance, capacity and scalability during the Holidays and throughout the year.

"Having been involved in building and deploying numerous web sites over the years, I can say without hesitation that issues of web application performance, scalability and capacity management are easier to manage with New Relic RPM."

"New Relic wants to give our online retail customers every advantage when it comes to ensuring service delivery and meeting business goals this holiday season," said Lew Cirne, New Relic CEO. "That why we've teamed with a seasoned retail customer, Sheet Music Plus, to share their insights and advice with other online business owners during a special webinar presentation later this month. Additionally, with economic concerns still on everyone's mind, now is the right time for us to make licensing RPM even more affordable. When online retailers put the right plans and tools in place for ensuring high service levels, everyone benefits."
