Compuware Gomez and OpSource Bring Performance Monitoring to the Cloud
Today, Gomez, the Web performance division of Compuware Corporation (NASDAQ:CPWR), and OpSource™, the leader in cloud operations, announced that they have signed a partnership agreement under which OpSource will resell Gomez’s Web performance management solution to its enterprise customers as well as use it to validate and monitor its own cloud performance service level agreements (SLAs). Through this partnership, OpSource and Gomez will bring powerful performance monitoring to cloud computing, making it easier and more compelling than ever for enterprises to justify bringing their applications to the cloud.

As enterprises evaluate and move applications into the cloud, a chief concern is the impact on Web performance and end-user experience. To help customers maintain control and visibility of their application performance, OpSource is now offering Gomez Web performance monitoring as part of OpSource Cloud™, which combines the availability, flexibility and community of the public cloud with the security, performance and control that enterprises demand.
Using Gomez, which provides a comprehensive global testing network to measure Web application performance from the end-users’ perspective, OpSource customers can now test application performance and cloud-bursting configurations prior to deployment and monitor them in production. This visibility helps businesses optimize the speed and availability of their applications and monitor SLAs so they can be confident that end-users continue to receive excellent Web experiences for cloud-deployed applications.

Additionally, OpSource will use Gomez to monitor the performance of its own managed hosting and cloud operations services. This will enable OpSource to independently validate and monitor its contractual performance SLAs.

“Application performance is a major concern of enterprises evaluating the cloud,” said Richard Dym, Chief Marketing Officer, OpSource. “We built OpSource Cloud to enable mass enterprise adoption of the cloud so it was critical for us to be able to demonstrate the superior performance that can be achieved. By offering Gomez’s industry-leading Web performance monitoring, we are helping customers maintain visibility and quality control of their application’s performance while reaping the cost and scalability benefits of the cloud. This will help the cloud grow even faster than imagined.”

“By partnering with Gomez, OpSource is enhancing its leadership in the cloud operations space and proving to prospects and customers that strong application performance in the cloud is realistic,” said Tom Meusel, Vice President of Worldwide Channels, Gomez division, Compuware.
