Open technologies for Application Performance Management
Charles - thanks for your post on application performance management. This is a really important topic for users looking to ensure a reliable, secure and cost effective service. The ability to collect data in real-time and rapidly process and act on the data are critical for detecting errors, slow-downs and performance bottlenecks. In addition to the COTS solutions you have described, there is a rich and vibrant open source enabled eco-system that includes tools like Apache Flume, Logstash, Kibana and Elasticsearch amongst others.

When it comes to managing data, donít look at backup and archiving systems as burdens and cost centers. A well-designed archive can enhance data protection and restores, ease search and e-discovery efforts, and save money by intelligently moving data from expensive primary storage systems.
