CopperEgg Launches RevealCloud Pro Bringing Comprehensive Performance Analytics to the Cloud
CopperEgg, Corp., the real-time analytics company, today announced the launch of RevealCloud Pro, a SaaS-based performance monitoring solution that helps companies accelerate the delivery of applications and services across public and private clouds. Now, DevOps and development teams can gain true real-time performance monitoring of cloud systems so they can isolate and solve critical performance problems before they impact application service delivery.

According to IDC, cloud computing will continue to reshape the IT landscape over the next five years as spending on public IT cloud services expands at a compound annual growth rate (CAGR) of 27.6 percent from $21.5 billion in 2010 to $72.9 billion in 2015. In fact, IDC expects one of every seven dollars spent on packaged software, servers and storage offerings in 2015 will be related to the public cloud model. Cloud monitoring product RevealCloud Pro helps companies optimize the health – and revenue potential – of applications built in the cloud by providing instantaneous insights into critical IT and business performance metrics.

Today users expect applications to respond instantly. If an application stops responding, even for a few seconds, users or customers go away, likely resulting in lost revenue or productivity. Performance monitoring using RevealCloud Pro provides split-second monitoring of the operating and performance metrics of cloud systems that support critical application services, enabling customers to accelerate time to market during the development phase, optimize deployments as they learn customer usage patterns, and identify early warning signals of service degradation.

“Our business is built in the cloud so performance monitoring is critical. With cloud monitoring product RevealCloud Pro, we have an easy to install and easy to use product that gives us everything we need to monitor our instances in real-time and ensure our systems are running optimally,” said Eduardo Fernandez, president of ShuttleCloud. “From the high level at-a-glance view of all systems to the drill down details of individual instance health combined with real-time alerting via email and text, using RevealCloud Pro makes it easy for us to ensure our mission critical applications are always performing optimally.”

"As more organizations build business-critical applications in the cloud, it is important to have a solution in place to give them the control and visibility into their systems they need to be successful," said Scott Johnson, CEO of CopperEgg. "The key is providing easy-to-use cloud monitoring products that enable development teams to focus on building valuable applications in the cloud instead of having to spend large amounts of time worrying about the infrastructure being used to support them. Built by developers and for developers, we’ve designed RevealCloud Pro with these needs in mind.”

CopperEgg’s RevealCloud Pro – How It Works

In contrast with legacy performance monitoring solutions that conduct polling in 1-5 minute intervals, cloud monitoring product RevealCloud Pro is purpose-built to provide actionable analytics in seconds, or less. The solution leverages rapid deployment; a highly distributed data collection model; the extreme speed and scalability of a NoSQL schema-free database; and real-time visualization with in-depth analytics and alerting.

Key benefits of CopperEgg’s cloud monitoring solution include:

  • Installs in seconds: no configuration required; users just copy and paste a single command into their systems to get immediate cloud monitoring

  • Has high sampling rate and provides deeper, richer performance detail, resulting in:

    • Data amplification – detects performance-degrading spikes (CPU and memory utilization, network I/O, storage capacity, CPU wait index, blocked processes) legacy monitoring solutions cannot because they are averaged-out in longer sampling intervals

    • Historical insight – provides drilldown, tracking and analysis capabilities of every aspect of system performance over custom periods, up to 30 days, to uncover trends and gain valuable insights into performance

    • Resource optimization – provides more accurate auditing and accounting of resource utilization related to cloud-vendor SLA's

  • Provides immediate alerts: custom settings allow users to set thresholds for alerts and direct them to individuals or groups as applicable for instant insight into the health of a system

  • Provides birds-eye view of entire infrastructure: has a top systems view so users can see the whole infrastructure in a sortable top level view and then quickly navigate to troublesome systems

  • Supports hybrid cloud environments: including multiple cloud vendors, virtual/physical datacenter resources

Used by DevOps and Application Developers who are building apps in the cloud, cloud monitoring product RevealCloud Pro will isolate and solve critical performance problems before they impact application service delivery. CopperEgg’s RevealCloud Pro is available here with a $15 instant credit on a pay for consumption basis.
