Web Applications Require Next Generation Performance Monitoring Solutions

BOSTON and AUSTIN — November 5, 2013 —AppNeta, the technology leader of Full Stack Application Performance Management (APM) solutions, announced today a strategic partnership with SolarWinds® (NYSE: SWI), an IT management leader serving over 150,000 customers worldwide including small to medium sized businesses and 425 of the Fortune 500 companies. Through AppNeta’s innovative, cloud-based approach to performance management, and through SolarWinds’ investment in AppNeta, the two companies will explore opportunities to meaningfully connect IT infrastructure to application delivery to drive an improvement in the overall performance and value of mission-critical business applications.


As more and more developers begin building and delivering applications on both private and public clouds, the traditional silos of application and network teams create a new set of management challenges for IT organizations. A recent Gartner, Inc. report explained, “The network organization must collaborate with application delivery teams and end users to understand specific performance requirements. The network teams must utilize application performance management (APM) tools to benchmark application performance in current and target state architectures.” In order to resolve performance issues quickly and ensure smooth delivery of mobile, cloud-based and web applications, companies will need the ability to track and integrate performance data across every touch point.


“SolarWinds is one of the great companies in IT infrastructure management with over 150,000 loyal customers and a well-respected, award-winning product portfolio,” said Jim Melvin, CEO, AppNeta. “We believe that this investment will benefit both companies’ customers with new, and more robust, Full Stack Application Performance Management.”


AppNeta’s cloud-based application performance management solutions deliver full stack visibility of applications, from application code through distributed networks, all the way to end users’ devices. This integrated insight gives customers the information they need to achieve exceptional application service delivery. SolarWinds’ comprehensive suite of IT management products allows IT Pros to manage the performance and availability of their entire IT infrastructure – networks, systems, virtualization, storage and databases. The partnership opportunities from this investment will allow the two companies to serve customers in the combined infrastructure and application development markets, delivering further insight into the performance of application from the code to the end user experience.


“We see a number of parallels between SolarWinds’ model for IT infrastructure management software and AppNeta’s leadership in APM 3.0 – purpose-built solutions that are designed to appeal to a highly technical user. In both cases, our companies are helping users to navigate a rapidly-evolving landscape through intuitive technology,” said Kevin Thompson, SolarWinds’ President and CEO. “We are excited about the opportunity to work with AppNeta to explore ways to align our best-of-breed products for managing the performance of both IT infrastructure and applications, to help technology professionals deliver a best-in-class technology experience to their businesses.”


AppNeta’s technical leadership was recently recognized when the company was named a 2013 Gartner Cool Vendor for Application Performance Monitoring. AppNeta was also named to the 2013 Inc. 500/5000 Fastest-Growing Private Companies List. To try AppNeta’s full stack application performance management solutions today for free, visit
