RightScale, the cloud manager, has integrated its platform with New Relic’s real-time RPM Ruby-on-Rails application performance management software. So RightScale users should be able to detect, diagnose, and fix performance problems with their cloud-borne Rails applications.
CEO Michael Crandell says, “Ruby on Rails has always been one of the most popular development frameworks for web applications on the RightScale platform.”
RPM is supposed to be a 10-second Rails plug-in install that can monitor the overall health of an application, detect potential performance problems that may impact customers, drill down to see the exact cause of the problem and integrate with application development and support tools.
It’s reportedly used by 1,100 Rails organizations like the New York Jets and Getty Images to handle 12,000 production application instances.
RightScale customers automatically get a subscription to RPM Lite, New Relic’s free, fully-supported Rails production monitoring product and can upgrade to New Relic RPM paid subscriptions that offer more performance tuning and problem analysis features and let customers store historical data for longer periods of time.
New Relic customers, in turn, can sign up for RightScale’s free Developer Edition and upgrade RightScale Professional Editions for more cloud management features and functionality.
RightScale, which claims 300,000 server deployments, is supposed to reduce the complexity of cloud computing, so mission-critical applications can be deployed in hours, even multi-cloud applications.
