New Relic RPM Provides On-Demand Monitoring, Troubleshooting, and Tuning of Business-Critical Web Apps Deployed on Joyent's Leading Cloud Hosting Platform

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - August 25, 2010) -  New Relic, Inc., a leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management (APM) solutions, and Joyent, a leading global provider of cloud computing solutions, today announced that they are partnering to make New Relic RPM available to customers of Joyent's leading cloud hosting platform. As part of the partnership, New Relic RPM has been certified to support monitoring, troubleshooting and tuning of Java and Ruby web applications deployed on Joyent's cloud hosting platform and will be offered by Joyent to their customers at preferential prices.

"As more organizations continue the migration to the Cloud on Joyent Smart Technologies, it's important that we work to provide them with every advantage," said Laurel Reitman, vice president of product management at Joyent. "Offering New Relic to our customers makes it easier for them to create and deploy highly scalable Cloud applications. Additionally, by using New Relic's tool to share visibility into applications deployed on Joyent, our support teams can become even more collaborative and efficient as they work with customers to ensure superior service delivery for their business-critical apps."

"We are pleased to be working with Joyent and their decision to offer RPM to their customers is not only a significant first step in our partnership but also a testament to the value that New Relic RPM can provide for industry-leading IaaS and PaaS providers," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic's vice-president of business development. "Joyent's decision to provide RPM as a standard for monitoring and managing applications on their platform reflects our shared commitment to customer success. Together, we are helping organizations deploy and maintain applications that achieve business goals by meeting high performance standards."

A leading Cloud provider, Joyent has built its own Smart Technology stack, runs a major public cloud on that stack, and makes the technology available for anyone who wants to build a cloud. Joyent's Smart Technologies provide application virtualization rather than hardware virtualization, which provides applications with better performance and cost effectiveness. A wide variety of application development technologies, including Java and Ruby, have been used to build applications which have scaled from zero traffic to billions of page views per month on Joyent.

New Relic RPM is a leading on-demand application performance management solution that operates seamlessly in both cloud and dedicated server environments. Development and deployment teams running applications on Joyent's robust infrastructure can now obtain RPM at preferential prices and use it to gain immediate and comprehensive visibility into production application health, proactively remediate potential issues, and optimize long-term application performance. Additionally, by sharing visibility into application performance, Joyent customers can enjoy a deeper level of collaboration with Joyent support teams.

Joyent customers can take advantage of RPM right away by visiting to select a free or paid RPM subscription at preferential prices or they may contact their Joyent sales representative. After the two-minute signup and implementation process, customers have immediate access to a rich set of performance data for their production web applications.
