In addition to the progress made to help customers maximize the value of their public cloud and containerization investments, Turbonomic has made multiple advancements to ensure customers can assure the performance of their applications in real-time and over-time, no matter where their applications are running:
- With the launch of Turbonomic 8, customers can enable external business indicators to be assimilated with application performance metrics. Customers can link application performance to key business indicators by highlighting the levels of dependency and correlation. The platform can capture necessary performance data through Application Performance Management (APM) solutions, and in the absence of APM, can still ingest performance metrics for applications not instrumented with APM.
- Turbonomic Data Cloud, a time-series performance data warehouse, enables high-definition analytics and reporting for Application and Operations teams. This SaaS offering ingests detailed application metrics, resource utilizations, and the prescribed actions taken to deliver a unified perspective across highly diverse data sources.
