Electric Cloud and Dynatrace Partnership Shifts Feedback Loops Farther Left in the Software Delivery Pipeline

With early monitoring, Dynatrace improves performance and product quality for ElectricFlow users throughout the DevOps pipelines and environments

SAN JOSE, Calif., Feb. 7, 2017 /PRNewswire/ -- Electric Cloud (http://electric-cloud.com), the leader in DevOps Release Automation, today announced a partnership with Dynatrace enabling organizations to uncover end user, performance and operational cost impacting issues in cloud environments and enterprise software much earlier in the delivery pipeline.

The new bi-directional integration is the first of its kind - enabling closed feedback loop between DevOps and Release pipelines and environments in ElectricFlow and Dynatrace.

The integration allows users to detect performance issues earlier in the lifecycle, have faster remediation and recovery, and prevent outages with automated policy-based rollback and self-healing. These enhance product quality and customer experience and give Operations confidence in the Release and environments and deployments fidelity.

"In a world where batch sizes are shrinking and the pace of releases is increasing, having automated policy-based control in the pre-production environment proactively reduces the chances of end user, performance and operational issues in production," said Steve Brodie, CEO at Electric Cloud. "Dynatrace, like Electric Cloud, was named a leader in a 2016 Gartner Magic Quadrant. The Application Performance Monitoring suite provides full-stack monitoring—looking deeper than typical testing tools—and allows ElectricFlow to automatically trigger the appropriate actions needed to bring the system back to a good state."

"This partnership between Dynatrace and Electric Cloud helps enterprises reduce the risk of end user impacting production deployments by monitoring and looping feedback earlier in the application lifecycle, " said Andreas Grabner, DevOps Advocate at Dynatrace. "Customers will now be able to immediately see the potential impact of code changes, remediate and fix poor app behavior earlier in the lifecycle. This greatly reduces time spent course-correcting in production and frees up more time for innovation."

ElectricFlow is a DevOps Release Automation solution that orchestrates the end-to-end software delivery pipeline from Development to Production. ElectricFlow is used by IT organizations to frequently and reliably deploy mission-critical applications at scale. It standardizes and automates software deployment tools and processes for consistent build, test and deployment procedures that speed cycle times, eliminate bottlenecks and reduce IT capital expenditure and operating costs.

Dynatrace is an application performance management solution that accelerates innovation, time-to-market and software quality through fact based decisions. Users can identify, for example, whether code changes cause any performance, scalability or architectural regressions. Developers can then stop the build early and allow only quality code in production, resulting in the production of better software faster.

Kubernetes as a Container Platform is becoming a de facto for every enterprise. In my interactions with enterprises adopting container platform, I come across common questions: - How does application security work on this platform? What all do I need to secure? - How do I implement security in pipelines? - What about vulnerabilities discovered at a later point in time? - What are newer technologies like Istio Service Mesh bring to table?In this session, I will be addressing these commonly asked ...

Skeuomorphism usually means retaining existing design cues in something new that doesn’t actually need them. However, the concept of skeuomorphism can be thought of as relating more broadly to applying existing patterns to new technologies that, in fact, cry out for new approaches. In his session at DevOps Summit, Gordon Haff, Senior Cloud Strategy Marketing and Evangelism Manager at Red Hat, discussed why containers should be paired with new architectural practices such as microservices rathe...
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. Th...

With the rise of Docker, Kubernetes, and other container technologies, the growth of microservices has skyrocketed among dev teams looking to innovate on a faster release cycle. This has enabled teams to finally realize their DevOps goals to ship and iterate quickly in a continuous delivery model. Why containers are growing in popularity is no surprise — they’re extremely easy to spin up or down, but come with an unforeseen issue. However, without the right foresight, DevOps and IT teams may lo...
DevOps is under attack because developers don’t want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That’s changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Rob Hirschfeld’s recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and...
When you're operating multiple services in production, building out forensics tools such as monitoring and observability becomes essential.
