CopperEgg Rapidly Grows Users Benefiting From Cloud Monitoring, RevealCloud's Real-time Cloud Performance Monitoring Provides Immediate Value to Users
July 26, 2011 (PRLEAP.COM) Technology NewsAUSTIN, Texas, July 26, 2011 – CopperEgg, Corp., the real-time analytics company, today announced RevealCloud™ is adding users at a rapid pace. Launched on July 12, RevealCloud, a SaaS-based performance monitoring solution that helps companies accelerate the delivery of applications and services across public and private clouds is the latest addition to CopperEgg's suite of real-time performance monitoring solutions.
RevealCloud provides split-second monitoring of the operating and performance metrics of cloud instances that support critical application services. This enables customers to accelerate time to market during the development phase, optimize deployments as they learn customer usage patterns, identify early warning signals of service degradation and proactively make adjustments to instances if performance is a concern. Since the launch, RevealCloud is being used to provide cloud monitoring for hundreds of instances and CopperEgg was recently named one of the "Ten Coolest Cloud Startups of 2011 (So Far)" by CRN.com.
Austin-based SocialWare turned to CopperEgg to monitor the servers it has in an Amazon data center. "We needed a way to monitor those servers remotely, and I was really impressed by how quickly, within a minute, you could have CopperEgg working," said Chad Walters, vice president of engineering at SocialWare. "With many other monitoring packages, you have to do a lot of work manually, or it's not what you need and never as fast as I've seen at CopperEgg."
BlackLocus, a SaaS based pricing intelligence and analytics company, initially installed RevealCloud on some of its instances and saw immediate value in using it for performance monitoring. "We have mission critical applications running in the cloud and having an automated ability to monitor our instances is critical," said Francisco Uribe, chief technology officer of BlackLocus. "We initially implemented RevealCloud on 15 instances and personalized our alert settings to thresholds that were tailored for our organization. Using RevealCloud has given us a lot of peace of mind and we are so pleased with its capabilities and the insight it provides that we plan to deploy it on 50 instances."
RevealCloud standard edition is available for free install here. Advanced features will be available on a tiered-pricing basis for a monthly subscription.
Benefits of Reveal Cloud
As more organizations move to cloud computing, it is important for them to have the visibility and insight needed to manage systems in the cloud and ensure that the investment pays off and delivers the efficiencies and ROI that companies expect. Cloud performance monitoring has become even more important in light of the recent outage of Amazon EC2 service as well as other serious cloud outages.
"Ensuring that cloud providers meet their Service Level Agreements is hard if the tools being used to monitor the cloud instance are the providers," said Scott Johnson, CEO of CopperEgg. "RevealCloud provides an invaluable cloud performance monitoring solution for companies by enabling them to independently monitor the performance of the applications as they go across the network or the cloud, and then be able to measure that performance where it reaches the end user."
CopperEgg gets deep inside your cloud instances, storage network and file servers to make sure everything runs as it should. Our SaaS-based performance monitoring applications, including RevealStorage and RevealCloud, are purpose-built to provide split-second insights, require zero-configuration and install in seconds-to-minutes, providing fine-grained visibility, decision support and value for organizations of all sizes. CopperEgg is backed by Silverton Partners and based in Austin, Texas. For more information, visit: www.copperegg.com.
