Users – and customers – care about one thing; they want their familiar and trusted applications to perform well and predictably. In the cloud, that’s usually not such a tall order. But there are plenty of exceptions.
That’s the focus of Application Performance Monitoring – born in the data center, but increasingly at home in the cloud. Cloud APM sees to the monitoring of resources that support actual applications, just like an on-premise APM. In the cloud particularly, the goal is often to identify user experience problems so that performance issues can be identified and cured.
