Microsoft aims to help customers improve application visibility
According to Microsoft, it will be able to help its customers improve their application visibility through the acquisition of BlueStripe. The software giant added that the deal will also help customers enhance their management of application across the cloud and data center.
The solutions of BluStripe help customers map, monitor, and troubleshoot distributed applications across different operating systems, cloud environments, and multiple data centers.
Currently, customers are using BlueStripe to expand the value of Microsoft System Center by adding application-aware infrastructure performance monitoring.
“BlueStripe’s enterprise-class solution enables IT professionals to move from monitoring IT at the infrastructure level to gaining visibility into applications at the transaction level. The technology discovers and maps applications and dependencies, pinpoints problems for faster resolution, and helps maintain SLAs across complex underlying infrastructure,” said Mike Neil, General Manager of Enterprise Cloud at Microsoft.
Neil added that BlueStripe helps in the process of updating applications to more modern paltforms and migrating to cloud by mapping the structure of distributed applications.
