New Relic Accelerates Enterprise Cloud Adoption and Optimization With Enhanced Offerings for Amazon Web Services

New Relic, Inc., provider of real-time insights for software-driven businesses, announced new product capabilities, customer enablement, and best practice guidance for organizations leveraging Amazon Web Services (AWS) through their cloud journey. Many of the most advanced and disruptive businesses running on AWS drive their cloud optimization and resource investments using New Relic, including Dunkin' Donuts, Morningstar, Scripps Networks, Telstra, Cloud Technology Partners, Relus Cloud, and Slalom. The company's latest updates support the speed, agility, and confidence for these teams, and help enable businesses adopting AWS.

Newly Introduced Instrumentation for AWS

Understanding the context of application health, performance, and constant changes across diverse environments requires deeper analytics than isolated performance metrics. New Relic's platform unifies real-time metrics from all the components of the application, including those provided by Amazon CloudWatch. To further this support, New Relic Infrastructure has announced expanded instrumentation for AWS, totaling 31 services, with new support for AWS Personal Health Dashboards, AWS Elastic Beanstalk, Amazon Simple Email Service (Amazon SES), Amazon Aurora, Auto Scaling, and AWS CloudTrail. Additionally, to get a more focused view, customers can now filter their data sources by tags for Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2), Amazon Elastic Block Store (Amazon EBS), and Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC). New Relic Infrastructure combines AWS service performance with application and customer experience data, enabling teams to understand how the configuration and deployment of AWS services impacts the rest of their technology stack.

Navigators Partner Program Momentum

The New Relic Navigators Partner Program is designed to help New Relic Navigators Partners drive results for their customers by helping them to deliver projects on-time, on-budget, and with measurable success metrics, by monitoring cloud migration and transformation projects on AWS and beyond. Today, New Relic announced that the following Premier Consulting Partners in the AWS Partner Network (APN) have achieved New Relic "Advanced Navigators" status, with recent efforts including:

  • Cloud Technology Partners (CTP), a Hewlett Packard Enterprise Company, has integrated New Relic into its migration methodology to help customers that are moving to AWS.
  • Relus Cloud has become a reseller of the New Relic Platform and has integrated New Relic into its migration practice to help customers migrating to AWS.
  • Slalom has engaged New Relic to build out custom dashboards to integrate into its performance engineering efforts and has collaborated with the New Relic team to drive important DevOps projects around the globe.

Advancing Cloud Transformation with AWS Migration Acceleration Program

As an early supporter of the AWS Migration Acceleration Program (MAP), New Relic has worked with AWS, New Relic Navigators partners, and other ISVs to create a packaged set of strategic considerations, best practices, trainings, dashboards, and flexible pricing options for large scale cloud migrations. These best practices rely on the New Relic Platform for low-touch customer experience baselining, application dependency discovery, migration acceptance testing, and post migration application and infrastructure re-architecture and optimization.


All of the New Relic Infrastructure updates are available today, with the exception of the instrumentation for AWS Personal Health Dashboards and AWS CloudTrail, which are in private beta.
