OpenShift and SharePath Provide Seamless PaaS Management Through Entire Application Delivery Cycle
FRAMINGHAM, MA- March 26, 2013 – Correlsense, an application management and IT monitoring software provider, today announced it is partnering with Red Hat to focus on collaboration around Red Hat’s Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, OpenShift. This partnership allows OpenShift customers and community access to SharePath, a leading application performance management solution. By using the OpenShift platform and SharePath together, both developers and IT operations professionals will have the ability to manage applications from development, through testing, deployment and in production.
Since its launch, developers have leveraged OpenShift for deploying PaaS-based applications in a streamlined and efficient manner. Users can upload their Java, Ruby, PHP, Perl, Python or Node.js code and leave the configuration, management and scaling headaches behind. With the application monitoring capabilities of SharePath, IT operations and development can use one tool to manage the performance of their applications after deployment. SharePath traces 100% of user transactions across multiple tiers and stacks, auto-detects interdependencies, and correlates the performance data on a single dashboard in real time.
“PaaS delivers velocity, efficiency and scalability in terms of IT service delivery but requires a paradigm shift in terms of application management,” said Bernd Harzog, analyst for Performance and Capacity Management at The Virtualization Practice. “The traditional lines of responsibility between IT ops and development have become blurred. Application management tools must now serve both of these IT stakeholders in a common language, the business transactions, while providing wide coverage to all cartridges, programming languages, and interfaces.”
“OpenShift provides developers with a compelling application development platform that manages the stack so that they can focus on their code. Collaborating with organizations like Correlsense allows us to expand the breadth of leading technologies available for use by developers using the OpenShift platform in the cloud. We’re excited to continue our work with Correlsense as part of our OpenShift ecosystem,” said Vijay Sarathy, Director, Cloud Ecosystem at Red Hat.
Besides the transaction tracing and analytical capabilities, SharePath also offers deep code-level diagnostics into Java and .NET applications. This allows both IT operations and developers to isolate code-related issues in production. SharePath is available immediately to the OpenShift community and does not require deep, code-level instrumentation. The product implementation can be done easily without introducing any performance overhead to the user’s environment.
“Enterprises have different needs for cloud environments and are struggling to get existing monitoring tools to cope with the dynamic nature of PaaS,” said Oren Elias, Correlsense EVP of Strategy and Business Development. “We feel confident that with OpenShift and SharePath working together Enterprises will have the means to succeed in PaaS environments.”
