Okta Using Boundary to Optimize Amazon Web Services

Okta Using Boundary to Optimize Amazon Web Services 
Amazon, Boundary and Okta to Broadcast Application Performance
Benefits in February Webinar 
SAN FRANCISCO, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 01/31/13 --  Boundary, a
provider of application performance management (APM) software for
next-generation applications, will participate in a webinar next
month to promote its work with Okta, the identity management company,
and Amazon Web Services (AWS). Okta has been using Boundary's cloud
solution since Spring 2012 to optimize the performance of
applications running on AWS. Adam D'Amico, director of technical
operations at Okta, will present the benefits of using Boundary with
AWS. Amazon is hosting the webinar and AWS Solution Architect Miles
Ward will lead the discussion. The event is scheduled for Thursday,
February 7 at 10:00 a.m. PT. Interested parties can register to
attend the event here. 
Boundary has developed a next-generation approach to APM based on
network monitoring and the requirements of modern, distributed
applications running on cloud and hybrid infrastructure. Boundary
collects flow data from application server instances by the second,
to provide real-time insights into traffic patterns, network latency,
packet retransmissions and other metrics. Cust
omers using Boundary
receive early warning signs for potential issues and faster
identification of root causes, when problems do occur. 
Okta delivers an on-demand identity and access management service
that enables enterprises to accelerate the secure adoption of their
Web-based applications. With Boundary, Okta has instant visibility
into connectivity and latency on AWS and receives alerts of any
suspicious traffic patterns. "We're 100 percent in the cloud, so we
have no way of monitoring the physical network," said D'Amico. "We
could see very coarse statistics before, but now we have an
aggregated view and we can see fine-grained aspects of how the
network is functioning. We use Boundary as a forensics tool to help
diagnose episodic issues with the public cloud, which helps us
re-provision the infrastructure accordingly." 
Boundary can monitor AWS status feeds for updates and will
automatically post any changes directly to the Boundary dashboard for
context. "Boundary provides a valuable service to our customers,
since they can easily see how their applications on AWS are
performing for users," said Ward. "This not only gives them peace of
mind about the apps and data they're hosting with us, but it helps
them plan and modify their service contract to achieve the exact
service levels they need."
