Applications were failing long before Cloud came along

I’m fed up of reading about Cloud outages, largely because all applications are created and managed by the most dangerous species on the planet – the human being. Failure is inevitable in regards to everything the human being creates or touches, and for this reason alone I see no news in seeing the word “outage” […]

At the USA PGA golf tourney last week, Tiger Woods missed the cut for only the 3rd time in his career. Whilst “Go Tiger” has indeed taken on a completely new meaning over the past few years, he is still the worlds #1 sports earner. CNN recently published the 50 highest-earning American athletes in which […]

If you are running mission-critical applications and do not have a strategy to deal with failure, you are putting your whole organization at risk.

Are your monitoring solutions smart or stupid?

Six months ago I did something really stupid. I foolishly jumped on the social media bandwagon, thinking I could become the first super hero to claim online greatness. Sadly, the only meteoric rise has been the disk space quota for my email server inbox–all thanks to the billion notifications I now get daily from LinkedIn, […]

Slow SQL – A Usual Suspect

Ask any developer to name a few common performance bottlenecks and 99.9% of them will say “the database” as their first answer. Ask a DBA the same question and 99.9% of them will respond “crappy application code.” If we put aside the mutual love between each party, it’s actually worth looking at why they arrive […]

“APM Game Changer” was the headline yesterday with the news that Compuware acquired Dynatrace Software for $256 million. With the APM market worth an estimated $6 billion, it’s not really a surprise to see such a transaction (no pun intended) within the APM market.
