Applications run differently in the cloud. Servers come and go, and nodes are constantly spinning up and down. In order to ensure the performance of cloud and hybrid applications, IT and Ops teams need a trusted Application Performance Management (APM) solution that’s been built to answer the unique needs of the cloud, and to take advantage of its benefits. Whether you’ve built a new cloud application or you’re looking to migrate your app to the cloud, AppDynamics provides all the information you need to accelerate your journey to the cloud.
The old ways of managing application performance don’t work in the cloud. If your mission-critical apps are in the cloud already – or you’re planning to migrate them from the data center – you need the performance assurance delivered by AppDynamics.
Keep full visibility even as nodes come and go
Prevent performance degradation when you migrate from the data center to the cloud
Manage massive scale – as many as 4,000 nodes – from a single controller
Dynamically provision resources to respond to real-time capacity requirements
AppDynamics equips application owners with a powerful arsenal for ensuring the performance of cloud-based apps:
Cloud Monitoring and Management
Keep 100% visibility and troubleshooting capability with Dynamic Cluster Aggregation. If you leverage cloud capacity and do agile development, your cloud instances are going to change frequently. AppDynamics adapts to those changes and ensures that you never lose sight of how your application is performing.
Manage your nodes with Intelligent Instance Lifecycle Tracking. AppDynamics responds to changes in the number and identity of cloud instances, even as new nodes are provisioned and old ones are killed off. We continuously learn “normal” performance levels and automatically manage the clean-up of dead nodes.
Constantly scale with Extreme Single- Application Scalability. To manage massive scale and provide 100% visibility, AppDynamics allows several thousands of cloud nodes to report to a single AppDynamics controller.
Prevent performance degradation. Use AppDynamics to ensure the success of your cloud project by measuring the performance baseline of your applications pre- and post-migration.
Automate workflows. AppDynamics gives you the ability to model the appropriate sequence of automated activities and tasks to execute in real- time – including configuring your application stack, creating new nodes or instances of the application stack, or dynamically de-provisioning nodes or instances.
Who Is It For?
Anyone whose phone rings when the application is having problems

More About What You Can Do During Your Cloud Application Migration
You’re able to visualize and map server dependencies, automatically discovering and mapping of all tiers that service and interact with your application. This gives you a far superior high-level view into your application performance than other performance tools.
You’re also able to monitor server health and Performance, understanding the health of your server with key profiling metrics like response time, throughput, exception rate, and garbage collection time as well as key system resource like CPU, memory, and disk I/O.
We engaged the AppDynamics Enablement Team and within a week we found over a dozen major defects that were affecting the performance and stability of our products. Great team, great enablement.
