Windows Azure Application Mapping- Roles and Services
AppDynamics automatically identifies, maps the living topology and performance of production applications inside Windows Azure. Organizations can thus understand Azure roles, the application tiers, and service dependencies inside the Azure Cloud. They can also rapidly isolate the components responsible for slow performance or poor QoS.
End-to-End Distributed Business Transaction Tracing
AppDynamics auto-discovers business transactions that end users experience in the application. All IT Operations and development teams have the context and visibility required to manage and track the end user experience. AppDynamics allows you to follow your transactions across each application tier, Azure Role, and service (SQL Azure, Service Bus & Storage). This is made possible in a highly distributed environment, enabling you to quickly detect bottlenecks.

With intelligent analytics to self-learn, AppDynamics baselines the normal performance of all business transactions in an application.
Auto-Scaling for Windows Azure
You can seamlessly provision more Windows Azure resources whenever your application and business transactions need it. AppDynamics also offers a policy wizard that has the capacity to auto-scale applications in Windows Azure depending on business transaction KPI such as end user response time or throughput.
