Evident Software Introduces ClearStone Development Packs for Monitoring and Managing NoSQL and Data Caching Applications

New Low-Cost Subscription Gives Application Developers Access to a Powerful Monitoring and Management Platform

ASBURY PARK, NJ--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - Evident Software, the leading provider of Application Performance Management (APM) for NoSQL, data caching, and Java applications, today announced the availability of the Evident ClearStone® Development Pack. Intended for software developers, the Development Pack is a low-cost edition of ClearStone, a production-class solution for monitoring and managing all data tiers of enterprise applications. ClearStone provides real-time collection, correlation, management and visualization of performance metrics for enterprise and Web-based applications. Leading e-retailers/e-commerce sites and financial services firms use ClearStone to optimize the performance of business-critical applications.

Development Packs give software developers access to all features of the ClearStone platform. An annual license subscription for a single user is available for $995. As a special introductory offer, Evident is offering licenses for only $495 until December 31, 2010. Developers can purchase the Development Pack licenses here: http://www.evidentsoftware.com/products/clearstone-development-pack/

Powerful Features for Developers and Operations Engineers

ClearStone includes features such as cache browsing, load testing/capacity planning, real-time monitoring, and analytics that enable software developers to quickly identify performance bottlenecks in applications. Once an application is ready for production, the operations team can take over, obtain a full production license of ClearStone, and make use of ClearStone's real-time dashboards and historical analysis features, as well as any customizations already created by the application's developers. ClearStone provides a "single pane of glass" for monitoring traditional Java applications as well as new applications that use NoSQL technologies such as Cassandra.

"Customers tell us they want to use ClearStone across all phases of the software development lifecycle -- from development to testing to production," said Scott Barnett, CEO of Evident Software. "The ClearStone Development Pack gives development teams affordable access to the ClearStone platform, enabling them to test and optimize their applications before they go into production."

"We have already sold Development Packs to several large banks and a leading American telecommunications company," Barnett added. "Our customers tell us that ClearStone offers the best visualizations they've seen. Giving developers easy access to ClearStone's rich analytics is a big plus for our customers."

The ClearStone platform supports Java and JMX-instrumented applications, as well as applications using Cassandra, Memcached, Oracle Coherence, and DataSynapse GridServer. Support for JBoss and WebLogic will be added later this month.

Evident Software will present a Web seminar on "The Present and Future of Application Performance Management for NoSQL and Data Caching Architectures" at 2 pm EST on Wednesday, December 15, 2010. To register, please visit: http://www.evidentsoftware.com/category/news-events/events/.
