What is APM? (A Brief Intro)
Application Performance Management is a must-have component that is quickly gaining momentum as part of public cloud computing solutions. It is an important key to monitoring and managing the performance of an application in the cloud. Application Performance Management provides system wide, high level insight into how your public or in-house data center is using hardware components, disk I/O, and memory while helping you identify performance bottlenecks and showing you the application availability ratio. With integrated Web Application Performance metrics, APM detects and diagnoses performance issues, and helps you return an app to its optimal performance benchmark.
The Shift from Traditional APM Benefits to the New SaaS APM Solution.
Historically, Application Performance Management was carried out using a combination of in-house dedicated hardware. Unfortunately, this was very expensive: you had to pay through the nose for Application Performance Management (APM) software licenses, back-end hardware, supporting software, APM deployment and integration, and the monthly maintenance of these enterprise-wide solutions. The complexity of managing these solutions was so time-consuming that the actual business strategy and goal in

Continuing to build momentum for its “Big Data” analytics solutions, EMC Corporation (NYSE: EMC) introduced the EMC® Greenplum® Modular Data Computing Appliance (DCA). The Greenplum DCA features a modular architecture that for the first time allows enterprises to combine a shared-nothing MPP relational database with enterprise-class Apache Hadoop – along with Greenplum partner BI and ELT applications – to achieve true structured and unstructured data co-processing, and expand it gracefully as needed in a single, unified platform.
DCA modules enable enterprises to completely change how they think about scaling by providing the ability to start small and expand the appliance in more flexible and cost-effective quarter-rack increments based on processing performance or storage capacity needs. In addition to mixing and matching Greenplum Database and Greenplum HD (Hadoop) modules, enterprises can also bring all their BI applications and ELT tools directly into the cluster, in the same DCA, through the use of new Greenplum Data Integration Accelerator modules. The result is a unified Big Data platform combining structured and unstructured data and applications in a single infrastructure that is also monitored, managed and supported by EMC.
