Pepperdata Introduces User Friendly Updates for its Application Performance Management Suite

Pepperdata, a provider of Application Performance Management (APM) solutions, unveiled new enterprise-grade features to its APM suite that include auto-tuning, enhanced recommendations, and management and operational reporting. The company is also introducing a set of services offerings that include best-practices, performance planning, capacity planning, and architecture design for big data success.

The announcement was made at the Strata Data Conference held September 11-13 in New York City.

The company’s new professional services are directly enabled by the vast amount of metrics — 600 trillion data points every year — that Pepperdata collects from tens of thousands of nodes every few seconds.

“That’s driving our machine learning use cases,” said Dan Marx, vice president of sales, Pepperdata. “We have the ability to in real-time look at the resources that are used, identify what a container looks like. It’s true intelligent resource management that’s driven by machine learning.”

This data provides unique insight into all aspects of operationalizing big data applications.

The Pepperdata APM suite — comprised of Platform Spotlight and Application Spotlight — enables collaboration between developers and operators, improves overall efficiency and performance, and enables enterprises to do more with their existing big data investments.

Platform Spotlight provides infrastructure and capacity managers with a 360 degree platform view, platform recommendations, platform alerting, and 360 degree reports.

Application Spotlight provides developers with a 360 degree application view, application tuning, application recommendations, and application alerting,

Along with these new features, the set of services the company will offer users and enterprises includes:

  • Establish and follow best practices and effectively set and achieve strategic initiatives.
  • Stay ahead of the competition by providing faster applications and more efficient resource usage.
  • Stay ahead of capacity needs and squeeze the most out of existing capacity.
  • Design a successful architecture using real-world experience derived from some of the world’s biggest clusters.
  • Successfully support developers and operations managers by providing self-service access to data-rich, curated, self-service portals.

“We can translate this human and experiential knowledge,” said Samantha Leggat, senior communications and content marketing manager, Pepperdata.

Looking to the future the company is looking at investing in Kubernetes integration, according to Marx.

“It makes sense for us to give our guidance back in the form of services,” said Marx.
