BlueStripe Makes Distributed Applications Work

BlueStripe’s newest release turbo-charges System Center and its ability to manage modern application systems

BlueStripe Software has announced the release of the BlueStripe Performance Center for Microsoft System Center 2012 R2. The BlueStripe Performance Center, a part of BlueStripe’s award-winning FactFinder software, brings together dynamic application maps, application performance monitoring, and infrastructure performance monitoring, all inside of Operations Manager. System Center users now have a single view from which to manage application service delivery – including performance monitoring, dashboarding, and hop-by-hop performance analysis and triage for all distributed applications and their components.

The new release gives IT Operations teams all the tools needed for performance monitoring and management directly within System Center. Starting with an application service delivery alert or from a performance dashboard within Operations Manager, System Center users can move to a live application topology map that highlights application and server response times to quickly identify the slow application component. With the bottleneck component isolated users can move to infrastructure analysis to identify the root cause of the performance problem – all without ever leaving the System Center Operations Manager console.

With the new BlueStripe Performance Center for System Center, users get the combined benefit of System Center’s infrastructure monitoring capabilities and the application-centric performance monitoring and triage capabilities of BlueStripe FactFinder, all in one workflow. The Performance Center for System Center provides:

  •     Complete cross-system and cross-platform coverage – complete visibility into the structure of applications with components that run on Windows, Solaris, Linux, and AIX servers, on physical, virtual, and cloud-based environments – and even third party services
  •     Performance visibility into applications and application components that includes response times, failed connection attempts, application load, server health, and more
  •     Direct integration within the Operations Manager workflow – so users never have to leave the Operations Manager console

The result is a complete service delivery platform. IT Operations teams can now focus their activities on application service-level performance and perform deep triage for performance issues directly from Operations Manager. In many cases users can move on to remediation using System Center capabilities – closing the loop on application service delivery.

“With the new Performance Center, System Center becomes a powerful tool for application service delivery,” said Chris Neal, co-founder and CEO of BlueStripe Software. “The combined solution is a great addition for IT Operations teams for both large and small organizations.”

“BlueStripe’s newest release turbo-charges System Center and its ability to manage modern application systems,” said Jeremy Winter, Principal Product Manager for System Center and Windows Server, Microsoft. “By combining FactFinder’s view of applications into the workflow of System Center’s rich Manage Pack tool set, our users get a management platform unequaled by any other in the market.”

BlueStripe’s 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 for System Center delivers FactFinder’s capabilities as an integral part of Microsoft System Center Operations Manager.
