Precise 9.0 Lowers Risk for Mission-Critical Applications in the Cloud

The Latest Version of Precise TPM Provides Real-Time Monitoring Across Physical, Virtual and Cloud Infrastructure

REDWOOD SHORES, CA--(Marketwire - March 9, 2011) - Precise, the global leader in transaction performance management, today announced the availability of Precise 9.0. The new release allows IT application owners to manage the Quality of Service (QoS) of their applications during and after their migration to a cloud infrastructure.

While there are quite a few solutions for cloud infrastructure management, none are able to handle mission critical applications. Ensuring application QoS on top of virtual infrastructure is challenging: old problems do not go away, virtual infrastructure is in constant change, and contention for shared services is a daily staple. Moreover, an application transaction problem has become much more difficult to pinpoint, due to the multiple virtualization layers around the application, database and storage.

Precise 9.0 fills this void by providing application, database and storage managers a "single pane of glass" to analyze transactions in flight, isolate problems, and even guide resolution:

  • Precise 9.0 tracks every single transaction from end-users all the way down to the storage level in real time, providing unprecedented visibility to application owners
  • Precise 9.0 automatically finds the cause of application transaction problems in the Java code, database or storage, accelerating repair of application slowdowns
  • Precise 9.0 visually presents the impact of VM events on application performance, allowing application owners to reduce risk of failure

"We use Precise to monitor the performance of our SAP application, which is accessed every day by thousands of ZIM customers, partners and employees," said Jorge Melman, SAP Infrastructure Team Manager, Global Database Department, Global IT Infrastructure Division for ZIM, one of the largest shipping companies in the world. "Using Precise we can determine which users are having performance problems, and in many cases identify the root cause of the problem, even while the system is executing millions of transactions. This real-time visibility and the excellent user interface in Precise version 9 has made Precise a central tool for monitoring SAP at ZIM."
