GoGrid Customers Can Now Use New Relic’s RPM for Java/Ruby Web Apps

RPM product supports GoGrid Cloud Hosting Infrastructure

New Relic announced that their RPM product supports GoGrid Cloud Hosting Infrastructure and is available for a limited time with preferential pricing. RPM is an on-demand tool that companies can use to optimize, monitor and troubleshoot their Java, Ruby and JRuby applications within a variety of environments, which now includes the GoGrid cloud.

With New Relic’s RPM running on GoGrid, users can monitor many aspects of a Ruby, Java or JRuby application, detect performance problems and eventually drill down to uncover root causes of any performance issues. RPM also cleanly integrates with other development tools.

There are several RPM Service Plans available for GoGrid customers to choose from including:

  • RPM Lite
  • RPM Bronze
  • RPM Silver
  • RPM Gold
  • RPM Enterprise

The graphic below clearly depicts the differences between each tier:

Do note that pricing varies based on the billing plan that you choose: Annual, Monthly or On Demand, as well as the number of hosts you choose to monitor. The pricing does NOT include the cost of using the GoGrid Cloud infrastructure. According to New Relic’s FAQs, installing of the RPM agent takes only a few minutes.

The RPM dashboard shows a wide range of data points including a snapshot of the health and availability of a customer’s managed applications including response time, errors and throughput. For a full overview of the RPM feature set, I recommend reading through their Feature Page.

The following Press Release was delivered today regarding the availability of the New Relic RPM application on GoGrid:

New Relic Teams with GoGrid to Deliver Superior-Performing Web Apps in the Cloud, on Dedicated Servers, or in Hybrid Environments

Customers taking advantage of GoGrid’s robust cloud infrastructure can use RPM to monitor, troubleshoot and tune Java and Ruby web applications.

San Francisco, CA (PRWEB) January 12, 2010 — New Relic, Inc., the leading software-as-a-service provider of application performance management solutions, and GoGrid, the Cloud Infrastructure Hosting service from ServePath Dedicated Hosting, today announced that New Relic RPM supports monitoring, troubleshooting and tuning of Java and Ruby web application deployed on GoGrid’s leading platform. Additionally, the companies announced that customers who select New Relic RPM to manage their GoGrid-hosted applications are eligible for preferential pricing.

With more than ten years of experience in enterprise-level data center hosting, GoGrid applies a unique understanding of uptime, security, and service level agreements to its public cloud offering. GoGrid goes beyond existing public cloud offerings by providing Hybrid hosting solutions that privately connect cloud front-ends with dedicated back-end infrastructures, as well as the ability to create and store customer images (MyGSIs). New Relic RPM is a leading on-demand application performance management that operates seamlessly in both cloud and dedicated server environments, making it uniquely suited to monitor, troubleshoot and tune web applications deployed on GoGrid’s cloud or hybrid infrastructures.

“Organizations taking advantage of GoGrid’s multi-tier cloud-computing platform have high expectations for performance and reliability,” said John Keagy, Co-Founder and CEO of GoGrid. “Working with New Relic to add application performance management as a complement to our robust infrastructure provides our customers with the very best combined solution for deploying and managing applications that successfully meet business needs.”

“As more and more companies deploy their applications with GoGrid, it’s especially important that they have a single performance management solution that they can use on-premise, in the cloud, and in hybrid environments,” said Bill Lapcevic, New Relic’s vice president of business development. “New Relic RPM is the only enterprise-class application management tool delivered as a service, and that automatically offers the same monitoring and troubleshooting capabilities for web applications deployed on both virtual and dedicated servers. Its a perfect fit for GoGrid’s customers.”

As part of the partnership between GoGrid and New Relic, GoGrid customers are eligible for a preferred partner discount on RPM pricing and a complementary trial of RPM Gold premium service. To take advantage of preferred pricing, GoGrid customers can visit New Relic’s GoGrid partner page, select a subscription level, then sign up for RPM. Discounts will be applied automatically.
