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. In case you've developed a new cloud application or you're planning to migrate your application to the cloud, AppDynamics gives all the required information 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 identity of cloud instances and number, 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.

What You Can Do While Your Cloud Application Migration Happens
You can visualize and map server dependencies, automatically mapping of all tiers that interact with your application giving you a high-level view into your application performance.

Top 5 Gotchas for Monitoring Applications in the Cloud
"If you haven’t already, many IT organizations are migrating some of their applications to the cloud to become more agile, alleviate operational complexity and spend less time managing infrastructure and servers. The next question you may ask yourself is, “How will we monitor these applications and where should we even begin with so many monitoring tools on the market?”..."
Data Clouds Part II: My Big Data Dashboard
"In my previous blog, I wrote at length about the complexities of running a data cloud in production. This logical data set, spread across many nodes, requires a whole new set of tools and methodologies to run and maintain. Today we’ll look at one of the biggest challenges in managing a data cloud – monitoring...."
