Boundary Makes Application Monitoring Available to Everyone

Fully Functional SaaS Based Application Monitoring Product Is Free -- No Hardware, No Credit Card, No Expiring Trial and No Waiting

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - Aug 14, 2012) - Boundary today announced immediate availability of a free option for its groundbreaking application performance monitoring solution. Unlike companies that provide only a sub-set of functionality in the free offering, Boundary's free solution is exactly the same as the paid offering, restricted only by the amount of data received and stored. Boundary provides users with a highly visual representation of their application topology and performance with unprecedented granularity and speed. The free version of Boundary includes all of the latest product features and capabilities announced separately by the company today. 

"Since we launched Boundary in March, we've experienced an incredible response from our passionate and growing base of users and customers," said Boundary CEO Gary Read. "We're launching Boundary free so that we can introduce even more people to our revolutionary approach to application performance monitoring that is setting the standard for the future."

Boundary is the first of a new class of application performance monitoring solutions designed and built for dynamic, distributed IT environments. Unlike traditional solutions that use a sampling or polling methodology and thus miss critical details, Boundary works by collecting all the data all the time and showing real time insights using its lightning fast streaming engine. In today's dynamic and rapid world of modern IT applications, Boundary alerts users to developing problems in seconds not minutes, enabling the continuous quality of service that is demanded by today's users. Boundary smashes traditional monitoring restrictions by operating in any environment -- including public, private and hybrid cloud infrastructures -- where real time visibility is essential but not obtainable from traditional monitoring tools.

Boundary is available now for free at The free, community supported version is restricted only by the amount of incoming data per day and the historical data store.
