Instana has a simple goal, make life easier for DevOps. DevOps teams have a hard problem! Keeping applications running perfectly is not an easy task in this world of agile development, continuous delivery, amazing scale and the ever increasing complexity of information systems architecture.
Application Performance Management (APM) has become a key element to achieving performance and availability of business-critical applications. Around 2005-2008, a second generation of APM tools were introduced built for monitoring service-oriented architectures (SOA), those products are usually referred to as APM 2.0.
Modern cybersecurity requires security platforms and practices that Since their introduction, a lot has changed in IT: Cloud computing has become the new normal, mobile devices have decoupled, Internet of Things is changing everyday standard items and microservices and containers are changing the way applications are built. These changes are driving new needs and old tools will not easily re-invent themselves and fulfill them. A new APM paradigm is needed.
Instana is taking application management to a new generation that DevOps can rely on, is excited about, and simply assists teams with timely, exact understanding.
