New Relic Provides Proven On-Demand Application Performance Management for AWS Elastic Beanstalk

Organizations Can Use New Relic RPM to Monitor, Troubleshoot, and Tune Business-Critical Apps Deployed on AWS Elastic Beanstalk

SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Marketwire - February 15, 2011) -  New Relic, Inc., a leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management (APM) solutions, today announced on-demand application performance management for business-critical web applications deployed on AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Organizations can now use New Relic RPM to monitor, troubleshoot and tune applications deployed on AWS Elastic Beanstalk.

Elastic Beanstalk leverages AWS services such as Amazon EC2, Amazon S3, Amazon Simple Notification Service, Elastic Load Balancing, and Auto-Scaling to deliver a highly reliable, scalable, and cost-effective infrastructure. It makes deploying applications in the AWS cloud even easier because it handles the provisioning and deployment of the infrastructure needed to run the application. Elastic Beanstalk lets developers retain full control over the AWS resources powering their application and can access the underlying resources at any time.

Zestia, a provider of cloud-based solutions for businesses, uses New Relic RPM to manage the performance of applications deployed in Amazon Web Services. Its flagship product, Capsule, is an easy to use web-based CRM solution for small businesses and sales teams. The company is based in Manchester, United Kingdom and has customers in more than 50 countries. "Having the ability to deploy and scale applications easily on AWS, and then monitor and troubleshoot them with New Relic has allowed our business to handle significant customer growth and react rapidly to meet their needs," said Phillip Haines, CTO of Zestia. "By creating a fully managed environment that puts greater control over the application into our hands, the addition of AWS Elastic Beanstalk will make it even easier to meet our customers' expectations."

New Relic RPM provides deep, 24x7 visibility and code-level diagnostics for Java, Ruby, PHP and .NET web applications. Designed to be deployed in minutes in traditional datacenters or in the cloud, RPM is used by organizations today to manage applications on AWS and has been thoroughly tested on AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Development teams deploying applications on Elastic Beanstalk can use RPM to quickly and cost effectively monitor production application health 24x7, identify and triage potential application issues, and better ensure long-term application performance.

"Elastic Beanstalk makes it even easier to take advantage of the reliable, scalable, and cost-effective AWS technology infrastructure services," said Brian White, Director of AWS Elastic Beanstalk. "Elastic Beanstalk, combined with New Relic's application performance management, gives developers valuable insights into diagnosing and tuning their applications to ensure superior service delivery."

"For some time now, New Relic has been providing real-time, on-demand application performance management services for organizations with applications deployed in Amazon Web Services, and we are pleased to be working closely with the AWS team to support Elastic Beanstalk," said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic's vice president of business development. "RPM was built from the beginning to deliver a greater level of application visibility and control by combining ease of use with world-class features -- the same guiding principles behind AWS Elastic Beanstalk. New Relic and Amazon Web Services are making it easy for organizations to deploy cloud-based business services that successfully meet end-user expectations and business goals."

New Relic RPM is available today for monitoring applications deployed on Amazon Web Services and AWS Elastic Beanstalk. Sign up and implementation takes about 2 minutes.
