Five guiding principles for building, managing, monitoring, and maintaining state-of-the-art web applications by: Lee Atchison Modern web applications have a lot riding on them. Our customers depend on them, and our business depends on them. Without modern web applications, many businesses would not survive. Modern web applications must scale to our biggest needs without suffering […]
written by: Kevin Casey “First and foremost, the cloud provider is an expert in security. Use the tools and processes they provide and recommend in order to facilitate a highly secure environment,” said Lee Atchison, Senior Director of Cloud Architecture at New Relic. “These might differ from best practices you used on-premises, but that’s OK. AWS […]
Moving your data is one of the trickiest parts of a cloud migration. During the migration, the location of your data can have a significant impact on the performance of your application. If you don’t migrate the data at the same time you migrate the services using the data, you risk needing to access your […]
When building a modern, high-performant application at scale, it’s important to make sure the individual application instances are distributed across a variety of data centers in such a way that if any given data center goes offline, the application can continue to function relatively normally. This is an industry-wide best practice, and an important characteristic […]

The global serverless architecture market shows no signs of slowing down with multiple vendors offering their services in a fast-growing arena. AWS, Microsoft, Google, Alibaba, Rackspace, IBM, Oracle, and CA Technologies are just a few industry names investing heavily in the serverless space. It’s no wonder that vendors are scrambling for a big slice of […]
As more and more companies embark on their digital transformation journey, organisations need to upgrade and evolve their infrastructure technology to maintain a competitive edge. The promise of serverless is to allow organisations to focus on their application and not worry about infrastructure, which includes buying, scaling, and securing infrastructure to run their applications. As […]
The dream of serverless is to enable companies to focus on making their application work, rather than getting tied up with managing infrastructure. Serverless is actually a misnomer: there are still servers, but your cloud provider runs them and dynamically manages the allocation of machine resources. The idea is that a company then only needs […]
Let’s have an honest debate about on-premise versus cloud app monitoring! Application monitoring is a modern necessity for technology-based businesses across every vertical. No matter whether you’re serving end customers or enterprise clients, a complete view of your applications and operating environment will help identify any problems before they escalate into serious customer service issues.
It’s past time to debunk an idea that’s somehow still kicking around in application performance monitoring circles. Put simply, just because you have an on-premise technology environment does not mean you need an on-premise monitoring solution. In fact, an on-premise monitoring solution has many disadvantages, even when dealing with purely on-premise environments. Read the entire article today in Diginomica.
