Boundary Helps Dachis Group Leverage Amazon Web Services Infrastructure to Bring Innovation and Cost Savings to Social Software

Boundary's Consolidated Operations Management Service Helps Social Software Provider Save Money and Improve Visibility Into Applications Hosted on Amazon Web Services

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwired - Aug 22, 2013) - Boundary, a leading provider of cloud-based services for Consolidated Operations Management, is now monitoring the IT infrastructure at Dachis Group, a provider of data-driven social marketing software and services. Dachis Group relies entirely on Amazon Web Services (AWS) to host its revenue-generating applications serving major-brand customers, including LIVESTRONG, AT&T, New York Life, Disney, Nestlé, Estée Lauder and Nokia.

Dachis Group desired deeper insight into its AWS infrastructure to optimize performance of its business applications. After deploying Boundary, the company could gain further insight into its performance and view historical trending data, enabling the company to reconfigure its infrastructure as needed, according to Brian Huddleston, VP of Development at Dachis Group. This visibility has allowed Dachis Group to deliver more immediate analytics to its customers, a critical enabler in social media marketing. As well, Dachis Group uses Boundary to optimize the use of AWS services, which has led to new processes and solutions that are reducing overall costs.

A webinar on Sept. 10, 2013 at 10 a.m. PT will detail Boundary's approach to Consolidated Operations Management for applications hosted on Amazon Elastic MapReduce.

"The network is the most important constrained resource in the cloud, so it's very important to monitor that," says Huddleston. "When diagnosing issues across that many nodes, and in particular server spikes, we need to determine if we are maxing out the pipe or if the input to that problem node is getting starved farther upstream. It's incredibly complicated and without Boundary, it would be really hard to deliver a world-class, big data social analytics solution."

"We are excited to work closely with Boundary to help enterprise customers like Dachis Group optimize their use of AWS, providing an improved user experience and additional IT cost savings," said Terry Wise, Director, Worldwide Partner Ecosystem, AWS.

Boundary delivers centralized event management by combining third-party alerts and events with real-time application topology, serving up a comprehensive "single pane of glass" view into modern cloud-based applications. The Boundary service is optimized for use with new-stack IT management leaders such as AppDynamics, Jenkins, Nagios, Opscode, Pingdom, Puppet Labs and Splunk.

"The big data requirements at Dachis Group are a perfect fit for Boundary because our service is designed to monitor, consolidate and troubleshoot highly complex, modern IT environments in the cloud," says Gary Read, CEO at Boundary. "We're thrilled that Boundary is helping Dachis maintain superior service through its cloud infrastructure based on AWS, and saving money too."
