SAN FRANCISCO–AppDynamics, a leading application intelligence company, today announced that its Application Intelligence Platform now supports customer applications running an expanded suite of services from Amazon Web Services (AWS). This expanded support provides deeper insight and control as applications migrate to and scale on the AWS Cloud.
AppDynamics offers the same performance monitoring, management, automated processes, and analytics for applications running on AWS that are available for applications running on-premises. With the AppDynamics Summer ’15 Release, applications deployed on AWS are now easily instrumented to provide complete visibility and control into an expanded set of AWS services, including Amazon Simple Queue Service (Amazon SQS), Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3), and Amazon DynamoDB. The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform now delivers to a broader set of AWS users real-time IT operational and business insights into performance, user experience, and business outcomes, helping enterprises to maximize the value of their applications running on AWS.
These new capabilities augment AppDynamics’ pre-existing support for visibility and control for AWS compute and database services such as Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) and Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS). Additionally, AppDynamics provides a monitoring extension that imports and auto-baselines any metrics published by Amazon CloudWatch, and provides a cloud connector extension for Amazon EC2 to allow auto-scaling based on a combination of infrastructure and application metrics.
Through a new 60-day trial license offer (and acceptance of license terms from AppDynamics), AWS Professional Services customers can utilize AppDynamics software to gain critical insight into key application data, which helps ensure successful application migration onto AWS. Customers using AppDynamics software are able to automatically map their application topology in real-time with out-of-the-box capabilities, and gain critical application insights to help ensure a smooth and successful AWS Cloud migration.

“When we first saw the graph of the architectural components of the application that came up automatically with AppDynamics, we had a much clearer understanding of how to maximize the application design as we moved to run on the AWS Cloud,” said Roy Early, production support manager at Allconnect.
Heather Abbott, senior vice president of corporate solutions technology at Nasdaq, said, “The ability to trace a transaction visually and intuitively through the interface was a major benefit AppDynamics delivered. This visibility was especially valuable when Nasdaq was migrating a platform from its internal infrastructure to the AWS Cloud. We used AppDynamics extensively to understand how our system was functioning on AWS, a completely new platform for us.”
“AppDynamics has been a long-term member of the AWS Partner Network, committed to accelerating the migration and monitoring of mission-critical applications to AWS. With broader AWS support capabilities, AppDynamics customers benefit from more options to help transition production workloads from on-premises to the AWS Cloud,” said Terry Wise, vice president, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, Amazon Web Services, Inc. “AppDynamics provides application owners with increased application performance metrics during pre-migration planning and provides ongoing data on the performance, effectiveness, and efficiency of their AWS application stack once migrated.”
“Application operations teams from Global 2000 enterprises have grown accustomed to deep dive instrumentation for their on-premises application workloads,” said Matthew Polly, vice president of worldwide alliances and business development at AppDynamics. “With our Summer ’15 Release, AppDynamics is enabling app ops teams to have even greater visibility and control of their cloud-based applications.”
