Blue Medora Introduces Hybrid Platform Operations Solution to Simplify Monitoring, Increases Overall Reliability

Delivers operational visibility to enterprises running Pivotal and Kubernetes platforms on AWS and Hyper-converged infrastructure

LAS VEGAS, NV – August 28, 2018 Blue Medora today announces its Hybrid Platform Operations solution for a new level of operational visibility into Pivotal Cloud Foundry® (PCF) – including Pivotal Application Service®, Pivotal Container Service® built on Kubernetes and other Kubernetes distributions on AWS or Dell EMC VxRail hyper-converged infrastructures.

Blue Medora is exhibiting at this week’s VMworld at Mandalay Bay booth #1548.

Blue Medora’s Hybrid Platform Operations solution lets customers dramatically accelerate operations by surfacing key metrics on the health and behavior of their hybrid platform. The monitoring integration solution provides performance from infrastructure to virtualization to orchestration, in the context of dependencies inside and across the platform. This relationship-aware data drives powerful dashboarding and intelligent alerting not possible with a single monitoring tool. It is delivered as an IT metrics app solution for vRealize Operations. This solution can also be delivered as a Monitoring Integration as a service (MIaaS) to a range of monitoring and analytics tools, including New Relic and Microsoft Azure.

Developer-oriented infrastructure boosts agility and digital transformation. But the adoption of abstraction technologies supporting the fast-changing needs of developers presents challenges to the infrastructure and operations teams implementing them. Whether an enterprise chooses a platform approach like Pivotal Ready Architecture, PCF on AWS, or Kubernetes on a hybrid cloud, service level compliance and efficient troubleshooting demands relational visibility to the different levels of abstraction within the orchestration layer. It also demands relational visibility to the infrastructure hosting your development platform, either in the cloud or on-premises.

A recent study conducted with VMUG® found that nearly two-thirds of IT ops teams lack significant visibility to external resource relationships and three-quarters lack access component-level data resolution, resulting in more downtime than peers using monitoring integrations that provide this critical capability. Blue Medora’s Hybrid Platform Operations monitoring integration solution simplifies monitoring and increases overall reliability.

“Pivotal Ready Architecture is a great example of how Dell EMC, Pivotal and VMware have come together to transform application delivery with a turn-key experience that just works,” said Rob Smoot, Vice President, Cloud Management marketing, VMware. “We’re excited that partners like Blue Medora are helping customers use this innovation with operational assurance and performance insight—which complements our vRealize Operations management packs for cloud-native apps and services.”

“Our customers are rapidly adopting cloud-native approaches to delivering applications and tell us that maintaining visibility cannot be accomplished with cloud tooling alone,” comments Christian Fernando, chief product officer at Blue Medora. “We’ve built this solution to address the unique challenges presented by containers and orchestration, whether in AWS or their hyper-converged data centers.”

“Cloud-native platforms like Pivotal Cloud Foundry are distributed systems capable of running thousands of different applications at scale,” explains Nima Badley, head of Pivotal Technology Ecosystem. “Reliably operating these sophisticated platforms requires modern monitoring and recovery systems. Blue Medora helps cloud operators and application developers alike monitor and share a mutual understanding of their overall system health in order to detect and recover from failures.”

The Hybrid Platform Operations visibility solution includes:

  •   10 monitoring source integrations
    • Cloud infrastructure: AWS ELB, S3, VPC, Budget, EC2, EBS & Auto Scaling Groups
    • Hyper-converged infrastructure: Dell EMC VxRail – full cluster visibility, including VMware, ESXi, VMware vSAN, RAID group and storage node details.
    • Platform/orchestration: PCF, Pivotal Container Service (PKS), Kubernetes
  •   Dimensional Data: a real-time metrics stream that includes highly granular behavioral detail — beyond what a single endpoint API connection might include — as well as rich relational context.
  •   Intelligent data collection: Agentless IT metrics data integration, with resource auto-discovery and touchless management
  •   Operational dashboards: Pre-built custom dashboard templates deliver Dimensional Data in operational context for relational visibility
