AppFirst Selected by CloudSigma as Cloud Monitoring Solution

Extensive Evaluation Leads to Clear Choice

(PresseBox) ( New York City, )
AppFirst, the only provider of realtime, proactive monitoring solutions, today announces its selection as CloudSigma's cloud monitoring solution. The company delivers the first Softwareasa-Service (SaaS)based application aware infrastructure performance monitoring solution that provides unique visibility into an entire application - regardless of language, application type or location (cloud, physical or virtual servers). The AppFirst CloudSigma partnership enables IT organizations running in the cloud to benefit from cloud price/performance while ensuring their applications are delivering the response time requirements of end users.

CloudSigma engaged in an extensive search for a monitoring solution to offer their cloud customers. CloudSigma's open platform allows users to install any operating system and applications. This requires a monitoring solution that can be deployed in any number of computing environments. Additionally, cloud computing has unique properties thereby leading to specific cloud related criteria such as fast set up and ease of deployment. During the evaluation CloudSigma experienced AppFirst's ability to deliver comprehensive, realtime performance data within minutes of installation regardless application type.

"Our customers are taking servers up and down often and are running business critical applications so we needed a monitoring solution that could span the spectrum of fast and simple to set up and comprehensive," said Patrick Baillie, CEO for CloudSigma. "From the moment we began our evaluation we were very impressed with the AppFirst solution."

"Visibility into how applications are performing in the cloud is key to cloud adoption," said David Roth, CEO and cofounder for AppFirst. "The CloudSigma team has demonstrated leadership in the field with its recognition of this and its selection of AppFirst, which we are very proud of."

Beginning immediately when users sign up for 14day free trials on either the AppFirst or CloudSigma's websites they will be offered the opportunity to automatically start a free trial of the other vendor's offering. Integration also enables customers to start monitoring their CloudSigma server at any time or instantly create a CloudSigma server with monitoring enabled.
