Carbonite Selects Stackify for Application Performance Management
Leading cloud backup and disaster recovery provider has chosen Stackify’s integrated application performance management, application and server monitoring, and error and log management solutions to ensure its core application performance.
Carbonite is the latest company to use Stackify’s unique all-in-one application performance management (APM), server monitoring, error tracking, and log management solution. Using Stackify, the Carbonite team has been able to expedite identification and resolution of application issues resulting in improved overall system performance and end-user satisfaction.
Viewable from one centralized dashboard, Stackify’s cloud-based insights into application health have recently been bolstered with the addition of its new APM+ software — an always-on solution that gives developers an increased understanding at every level of an application’s performance by offering code-level profile traces. The solution is fully integrated with Stackify’s existing application and server monitoring, error tracking, and log management solutions. This full suite of products provides Carbonite with a comprehensive view of the health and performance of its applications.
Within 45 minutes of installation, Stackify identified memory leaks in Carbonite”s servers. Carbonite”s Principal Software Engineer, Michael Paterson, exclaimed that APM has been an outstanding addition to the Stackify tool belt.
“The ability to see such detailed performance information without code changes has been undeniably and incredibly beneficial. Recently we had a performance problem that could only be reproduced in production. We turned on APM and within a couple of minutes were able to identify the issue and a few hours later push out a fix. Without APM we would have added 10s if not 100s of log statements in an effort to get some of the information that APM gave us with the push of a button,” adds Paterson.
The immediate time and cost benefits of having one location for all application performance monitoring and log and error management needs has allowed the Carbonite team to focus on business-critical aspects that will increase its share in an off-premises cloud services market that — according to Infonetics — is expected to be over $200 billion by 2018.
