VividCortex expands its Database Performance Management solution, already supporting MySQL and PostgreSQL, to Redis, a popular open source database. The innovative approach VividCortex takes to monitoring distributed systems helps IT departments improve app performance at lower costs.
Charlottesville, Virginia (PRWEB) April 02, 2015 - VividCortex, pioneer of Database Performance Management software, announces immediate availability of database monitoring for Redis, extending industry-leading insight to another widely-used open source database.
Launched in early 2014, VividCortex brings customers query-level visibility at high resolution, allowing developers, managers and executives to see exactly what is happening on production servers. Companies from gaming to web services to retail depend on VividCortex to improve application availability and performance, accelerate IT delivery, and reduce infrastructure costs. VividCortex supports MySQL and announced PostgreSQLsupport in January 2015; the addition of Redis support is another step in creating an effective monitoring solution for highly distributed, diverse systems.
Baron Schwartz, CEO and founder, further explains the product development. “Redis is an important database for VividCortex, both strategically and commercially, due to its incredible popularity and our own usage. We rely on Redis to help analyze the massive amounts of time-series data we receive from agents running on customer systems. Although it is a high-performance and reliable system that generally just works, that doesn’t mean it can’t be improved. We were able to significantly optimize our usage of Redis with the network-traffic visibility built into our agents. Most of our customers also use Redis, and we are delighted to offer our advanced solution to the general public now. The visibility provided into Redis’s performance, as well as the app’s usage of it, is simply unparalleled in the market.”
VividCortex continues to broaden its feature set even as it expands the addressable market. The product now includes query and metrics pages that allow easy filtering to view information about any query or metric. Users are also able to see the connection latency for newly established connections against the server and monitor the source of database load. These enhancements and others on the horizon will address the need for monitoring today’s data-intensive applications.
