Typesafe Activator Gives JVM Application Developers the Power of Purchasing Market Leading APM Tools, on the Fly
SAN FRANCISCO, CA--(Aug 14, 2014) - Typesafe, provider of the world's leading Reactive platform and the company behind Play Framework, Akka, and Scala, today announced that Typesafe Activator now offers enhanced functionality that provides enterprise application developers with instant access to the power of real-time application performance monitoring (APM) tools from market leaders AppDynamics and New Relic.
"Adding real-time monitoring on the fly from market leaders like AppDynamics and New Relic is a huge productivity boon for developers," said Hywel Evans, Director of Alliances at Typesafe. "We think this integration of APM ISVs demonstrates the flexibility and potential of Typesafe Activator and really paves the way for future commercial integrations to give developers more control and confidence as they create Reactive applications on the Typesafe platform."
AppDynamics and New Relic are now available through Typesafe Activator. These APM tools provide data in real-time with visual analysis of the application, including data points, account data, performance reporting and more. With real-time data and analysis, APM becomes critical to continuous development, continuous testing and continuous deployments in modern software environments.
"Our Application Intelligence Platform helps today's software-defined Enterprises proactively monitor, manage and optimize their most complex, highly distributed applications," said Matthew Polly, Senior Director of Business Development at AppDynamics. "By their nature, Reactive applications are highly complex and our partnership with Typesafe has enabled us to support the entire Scala/Akkla/Play Reactive platform, making it easy for developers and production operations teams in the Enterprise to realize the benefits immediately."
"New Relic is joining forces with Typesafe to enable the building of fast and scalable web applications for the open source, JVM communities. New Relic's pure SaaS solution offers a complete end-to-end software analytics solution in addition to an open platform architecture that enables customers to customize the monitoring of their entire application stack through plugins," said Bill Lapcevic, Vice President of Business Development at New Relic. "New Relic contributes to the JVM ecosystem with advanced metrics and visibility as well as to Java, Ruby, Python, PHP, .NET and Node.js languages and frameworks. We're pleased to partner with innovators like Typesafe to help software developers build a new generation of applications that are more resilient and responsive for user interactions."
