Cloud Migration Tips #1: Cloud = Confusion

I get so many questions about cloud computing from friends, acquaintances and IT professionals alike. The non-technical folks usually have heard of “the cloud” but have absolutely no idea what it is or even realize how much they interact with it on a daily basis.

Introducing AppDynamics for Databases

The most common cause of application slowdowns today is slow SQL or stored procedures in the database. The reason? Databases store large amounts of data on disk, and disk is super slow relative to data in memory (unless its SSD). As data volumes grow, the need to configure, maintain and optimize a database also grows […]

Introducing AppDynamics for PHP

It’s been about 12 years since I last scripted in PHP. I pretty much paid my way through college building PHP websites for small companies that wanted a web presence. Back then PHP was the perfect choice, because nearly all the internet service providers had PHP support for free if you registered domain names with them. Java and .NET wasn’t an option […]

Your applications are the lifeblood of your business–the culmination of countless hours of development, testing, bug fixes, more testing, and finally deployment to production.

How quickly and effectively you remediate these business […]

AppDynamics for iOS and Android Applications

Up until 6 months ago, I owned a Droid X cell phone. It was one of the worst decisions I’ve ever made in my life–18 months of my life controlled by a cell phone operating system that crashed more times than Windows 95, and that’s an impressive statistic. So when I finally got my hands […]

Buzzword Bingo by UrbanDictionary.com

It seems like every article, tweet, blog post I read someone has a different definition of the same buzzwords – especially in technology.  Mentioning cloud or big data on a tech blog is like bringing sand to the beach. That’s one of the reasons why we made The Real DevOps of Silicon Valley – to make fun of the […]

Why solving customer problems is more important than chasing buzz words

It’s been a while since I last blogged, almost entirely because AppDynamics is growing faster than I ever expected. For example, last week we had our sales kickoff for 2013 and we literally filled the Clift hotel in San Francisco. To say the least, that’s a very different experience than filling a conference room with […]
