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

Revisiting “The Fallacies of Distributed Computing” in the Cloud Era
Business data is considered to be one of the most valuable assets of any company, and keeping that data secured has to be the priority for business owners. Small business owners often neglect the protection of data, either because of the costs associated with it, or because they are not tech savvy enough to employ necessary measures. Many small businesses also don’t have IT staff on board to manage their security services. Luckily, business owners can now find security solutions that are both affordable and easy to use, and make sure that their company is protected from financial damage caused by accidents or data security breaches. More and more companies are now choosing SaaS solutions that are rapidly replacing the traditional security software due to numerous benefits that they can offer to businesses of all size.
