The IPP leverages integration of the members’ technologies with AppDynamics to deliver an AIO/s ecosystem that assures application service delivery in a hybrid and multi-cloud world.
As part of the IPP, Virtual Instruments and AppDynamics will work together to help enterprise customers optimise the performance and availability of their business-critical applications and infrastructure.
Enterprises continue to adopt a hybrid data centre model to leverage the flexibility of the cloud alongside the control and security of on-premises IT infrastructure, but the scale and complexity of these highly virtualised, multi-cloud environments is beyond human comprehension. Meanwhile, enterprises are eager to pursue the valuable business benefits offered by an AIO/s-based approach. As a result, enterprises are increasingly seeking integrated AIO/s platforms, delivered by a collaborative vendor ecosystem, to ensure that they are deploying best solutions.
Virtual Instruments’ hybrid infrastructure monitoring and analytics platform, VirtualWisdom, takes an applied intelligence approach to AIO/s. It combines ML with an understanding of applications gained from AppDynamics and other sources. It applies a knowledge-base of domain specific algorithms to assure application infrastructure performance, predicatively manage capacity, and proactively balance workloads. When problems do occur, VirtualWisdom automatically investigates, triages, diagnoses, and provides actionable remediations.
Through the IPP, AppDynamics, Virtual Instruments and other members are fostering an open ecosystem of established and emerging technology vendors. The goal of the IPP is to identify the optimal combination of technologies for enterprises to achieve their goals in automation and deliver the best user experience for their customers.
“The big and constantly changing marketplace for IT automation has created an environment that’s hard to navigate for IT teams looking to transform their business with AIO/s,” said Brian Paul, head of ecosystem strategy and development, AppDynamics. “The IPP is designed to help enterprises understand the vast array of technologies and capabilities available in this complex space and provide a platform for the optimal solution for AIO/s. Our partnership with Virtual Instruments provides enterprises with access to a critical combination of infrastructure and APM capabilities that accelerate the AIO/s journey and deliver stellar user experiences.“
The IPP’s open ecosystem model enables the program’s members to collectively deliver the visibility and automation required of an AIO/s approach. This allows enterprises to leverage quick feedback, constant learning/improvement, and self-healing hybrid infrastructures, which are key elements of an effective, multi-vendor AIO/s platform. The combination of AppDynamics and Virtual Instruments provides full-stack, real-time visibility to hybrid applications and infrastructure, empowering businesses with AI-powered insights and automation to help them take the right action at exactly the right time.
“There is a lot of hype out there right now around ‘AIO/s,’ and the customers I’ve spoken to are looking to the application and infrastructure management vendors they know and trust to establish a proven approach,” said John Gentry, CTO, Virtual Instruments. “The AppDynamics IPP program provides enterprises with the integrated ecosystem they are looking for in managing their hybrid application and infrastructure environments, enabling them to pave the path to a true AIO/s solution. We’re excited to be one of the IPP’s charter members and look forward to working with the ecosystem partners to support the business-critical applications our customers’ customers rely on every day.“
