Application Performance Management will be a critical part of ensuring that the applications that matter to your business are highly available and perform well in your software-defined data center and clouds. Running rapidly changing applications on a highly dynamic software infrastructure will lead to intractable problems unless proper APM tools are deployed in your SDDC.
Public cloud vendors do not measure what they need to measure in order to be able to provide infrastructure performance assurances to their customers. This is why their SLA’s are useless. This is why if you put your application in a public cloud your absolutely need to measure its response time with a cloud application performance management solution.
