New Relic the all-in-one observability platform for every engineer, announced a new, deeply integrated experience for its infrastructure monitoring and APM capabilities that correlates the health and performance of applications and hosts in real-time. Engineers, DevOps, and ITOps can now quickly diagnose application and infrastructure performance issues, and avoid context switching or missing critical insights due to siloed infrastructure monitoring tools. Unlike competing tools that price on peak usage and auto-scale penalties, New Relic pricing is based on actual usage, eliminates bill shock, and is one-third the cost of competitors. Now organizations can afford to analyze all of their telemetry data without sampling, ensuring they have the necessary data to quickly identify and resolve issues when something breaks.
“Infrastructure monitoring is business-critical for every engineering team in a digital business. It's also an area of ballooning costs and surprise bills as more workloads shift to the cloud and teams enable auto-scaling,” said New Relic Chief Product Officer Manav Khurana. “This release addresses both those concerns by adding best-in-class infrastructure monitoring to easily monitor and debug infrastructure issues, with a unique pricing model that saves customers money compared to other tools on the market.”
“APM and infrastructure silos impede performance. Our applications need to keep pace with our customers, and integrating multiple tools is a timely and costly process,” said Digicert, Inc. Director of SRE Engineering Operations Rizwan Nazir. “With New Relic's all-in-one infrastructure monitoring solution, we can diagnose host-driven performance issues by correlating the health of our applications and hosts in real-time, quickly detect anomalous behavior, and deploy fixes—all while reducing operational expenditures.”
Using siloed tools to monitor applications and infrastructure performance prevents users from understanding how the layers of their stack impact each other. New Relic gives users a connected and opinionated observability platform to correlate performance across infrastructure, APM, and the rest of their stack, so they can identify and fix problems before they impact their customers. With host performance directly in APM, users can quickly triage which layer of their stack is causing performance issues. Deep links in APM take them to a brand new infrastructure monitoring experience that includes embedded APM data and is pre-filtered for the service they’re investigating so they can remediate problems faster than ever. And the New Relic pricing model charges only for exact usage and does not charge higher rates for custom metrics or third-party data, resulting in 3x the value compared to other vendors.
Key features include
Integrated infrastructure experiences inside APM: View CPU and memory for hosts, containers, and VMs within APM to instantly identify under-provisioned resources that are impacting applications.
At-a-glance estate view: See the status and count of hosts, applications, and events (dynamically adjusted as data is filtered), along with an alerts activity stream to understand overall system health.
In-context application health: Dynamic charts provide host- and APM-specific metrics to correlate drops in performance across infrastructure and the applications running on them.
Embedded change tracking: Analyze how application deployments impact host performance, with change tracking embedded directly in the new infrastructure experience.
No peak billing and one-third the cost of competitors: Consumption-based pricing, with no additional charges for custom metrics, providing up to 3x the value of competing observability solutions.
Unlike competitors that become prohibitively expensive as the number of hosts increases, the New Relic all-in-one platform with single SKU pricing enables all engineers to access the same data and workflows for better value. New Relic infrastructure monitoring is included at no additional cost to all New Relic full-platform users. New customers can sign up and start using the experience for free, no credit card needed.

Combining the best software and hardware technology from previous generations of Raritan and Server Technology rack PDUs while adding a considerable number of new, ground-breaking features, they offer the industry-leading visibility, best-in-class hardware and security Legrand's customers need.
Sold by Legrand's brands as the Server Technology PRO4X and Raritan PX4, these new intelligent rack PDU designs revolutionize capacity planning, workload optimization, environmental monitoring, physical and digital access control, and uptime initiatives. Combining over 30 years of battle-tested engineering and intelligence with industry-proven hardware and software, the PRO4X and PX4 will solve the power needs of data center operators today, while helping them anticipate tomorrow's rack power distribution challenges.
Equipped with future-focused capabilities, the PRO4X and PX4 vastly improve upon PDUs previously available on the market. They are the first rack PDUs to measure total harmonic distortion at the cabinet and device levels, offering data center operators the most complete and accurate (+/- 0.5 percent) set of internalized power quality monitoring and metrics, including waveform capture capabilities. For example, the visibility of peak and min/max power measurement values offered by the PRO4X and PX4 will greatly assist in capacity planning, identifying stranded capacity and conducting failover planning. As well, the product's Circuit Breaker Trip Forensics with Waveform Capture will help facility managers not only uncover the exact outlet and potential cause of a circuit breaker trip, but also capture, visualize, and review waveform power quality data to proactively prevent similar occurrences. Overall, the Server Technology PRO4X and Raritan PX4 offer the best in data collection and optimization, infrastructure flexibility, and white space security and instrumentation for data center operators in need of unmatched innovation coupled with proven performance.
"We are excited to launch the Server Technology PRO4X and Raritan PX4 intelligent rack PDUs to revolutionize the way data centers and mission-critical facilities manage their power and vital infrastructure," said Joe DeLong, VP/General Manager, Legrand's Data, Power, and Control division.

Zesty, a pioneer in dynamic cloud infrastructure solutions, announced that it has partnered with skyPurple Cloud, the public cloud operations specialists for enterprises. With Zesty, skyPurple Cloud's customers have already reduced their average monthly EC2 Linux On-Demand costs by 44% on AWS.
While cloud spend continues to increase, growth has reportedly slowed as companies remain cautious during economic uncertainty. In order to reduce cloud costs, many organizations depend on developers to constantly monitor and manage EC2 resources and cloud spend manually rather than overprovision and commit to a long-term discount plan.
skyPurple Cloud empowers businesses with support solutions for public cloud implementation. As part of its tailor-made approach, skyPurple Cloud customers employ Zesty's technology to optimally scale and automate cloud operations to drive sustainable growth and cut costs. Within the first month of implementation, skyPurple Cloud customers noticed a significant increase in service quotas for Amazon EC2 instances and saved developers considerable time and money by automatically handling quota requests on customers' behalf.
"Particularly during such a challenging time for so many, skyPurple Cloud understands how crucial it is for businesses to maintain performance and reduce costs," said Maxim Melamedov, CEO and co-founder of Zesty. "Companies are no longer able to ignore overspending and settle for suboptimal rates for their cloud resources. EC2 instances quickly become very expensive to run and companies must ensure that more of their workloads are covered by discount programs that will dramatically push down this cost premium. We're thrilled that skyPurple Cloud is helping its customers to stay cost-efficient by implementing Zesty."
"skyPurple Cloud plays a key role on the path to achieve cloud optimisation in the UK market," said Lucia Meyassed, Global Partner Manager Team Lead at Zesty. "We're excited to see its customers already saving a great deal in the cloud with Zesty and look forward to enabling even more UK-based organisations to maximize their cloud savings potential."
"At skyPurple Cloud, we know the substantial value automation tools hold for companies when it comes to optimally managing cloud infrastructure and the costs that come with it," said Roy Long, founder of skyPurple Cloud. "Zesty is the gift these companies have been waiting for – delivering cost savings in just a few days and significantly decreasing monthly AWS bills."
