SolarWinds has introduced SolarWinds®AppOptics™ Dev Edition, a free version of its award-winning SaaS infrastructure and application performance management (APM) solution, AppOptics—part of the SolarWinds APM Suite. AppOptics Dev Edition offers the same rich features of the full AppOptics solution in a scaled-back version well-suited for development environments, enabling technology professionals at any stage in the APM journey to test, optimise, and troubleshoot business applications before they go live in production operations.
According to the Gartner® 2019 Magic Quadrant® for Application Performance Monitoring, enterprises will quadruple their use of APM functionality through 2021 to cover the increasing demand for digitised business capabilities. They expect APM suites will cover 20 percent of all business applications by this time.
“The need to manage custom business applications is on the rise, placing new pressures on tech pros to monitor the performance and availability of apps in hybrid and cloud-native environments. SolarWinds is helping tech pros ease this burden and overcome the cost and complexity traditionally associated with most APM tools available on the market by offering free access to its AppOptics APM features and functionality,” said Denny LeCompte, senior vice president and general manager, application management, SolarWinds. “Whether a tech pro is just getting started with APM or if they’re looking for a means to test and troubleshoot apps before production, the AppOptics Dev Edition provides real value for a variety of business application use cases.”
Designed to deliver end-to-end visibility down to the transaction level, AppOptics helps users prove where and when end-user experiences do not meet intended-for service levels through performance information for each element of a request, providing insight into the root cause of performance bottlenecks.AppOptics supports custom applications in hybrid and cloud-native environments with broad language support (.Net, Java®, PHP, Python®, Scala, Node.js®, Go™, and Ruby).
