300+% Growth in New System Installations Brings Application and Service-Level Performance Visibility to a Hybrid-Cloud World

BlueStripe Makes Distributed Applications Work

BlueStripe Software announced that 2014 was a year of record customer and product growth. BlueStripe added new customers and new deployments of its FactFinder software at record rates, while establishing technical leadership in managing Hybrid Cloud applications. In 2014 the company grew its overall customer base by 38%, adding a record number of new customers. The scale of deployments also grew at record levels, as the company more than tripled the number of new monitored systems, and the overall number of servers being monitored grew by 176%. BlueStripe also continued to win awards and garner recognition from industry analysts as a visionary in the Systems Management industry.

BlueStripe updated its flagship FactFinder performance management solution with several key releases in 2014. New versions of FactFinder centered on major technical advancements for providing application visibility within hybrid-cloud environments and managing application and infrastructure performance together (using infrastructure management platforms). Highlights include the following:

The BlueStripe Performance Center

Seamless integration of FactFinder capabilities into Systems Management platforms, with specific integration delivered for Microsoft System Center and Microsoft Windows Azure Pack.

  •     Complete Application Management Inside Microsoft System Center

With the BlueStripe Performance Center, System Center users get a complete application management solution within System Center Operations Manager – including automatic real-time discovery, mapping, and monitoring of distributed applications. The solution also brings full drill-down capabilities for problem triage directly into the Operations Manager workflow.

The only method to see application (or infrastructure) performance from within Microsoft’s Windows Azure Pack cloud management console. Service Providers can even sell access to BlueStripe performance data as a value-added service to their tenants.

Customizable Dynamic Executive Dashboards

HTML5-based dashboards, customizable by users, give BlueStripe customers the ability to provide application performance dashboards customizable to each stakeholder’s function.

Certified Azure-based Deployment Option

A virtual appliance delivery of BlueStripe software components, available for instant download and certified on Windows Azure.

2014 marked the development of an entire new category of Systems Management tools, of which BlueStripe was designated as a visionary leader in the space: “Application-Aware Infrastructure Performance Monitoring.” AA-IPM tools are described as the perfect solutions for IT Operations teams that are responsible for Application Service Delivery – providing visibility at the intersection of applications and infrastructure systems.

The AA-IPM recognition followed weeks after BlueStripe won its fifth consecutive Gold Award for the Best Transaction Management Solution from Network Products Guide, spanning three full years in which BlueStripe won the Gold award as best solution.

“2014 was a record year of growth at BlueStripe in customer acquisition, deployments, and technical innovation” said Chris Neal, co-founder and CEO of BlueStripe Software. “With full application management inside System Center, the only performance management for Windows Azure Pack, and the most complete hybrid-cloud management solution in the market, we’re looking forward to an even bigger 2015.”

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.
