Business Wire

HOUSTON -- February 20, 2013

BMC Software (NASDAQ: BMC) today delivered a streamlined Application
Performance Management (APM) solution for Amazon Web Services (AWS) customers.
BMC Application Diagnostics is now available in the AWS Marketplace,
preconfigured to run on Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL). When paired with
BMC’s recently announced Application Performance Management as a Service
(APMaaS) solution, Application Diagnostics delivers deep insight into complex,
multi-tiered application performance.

The new solution provides a ready-made foundation for enterprise customers
building RHEL-based applications to run in the Amazon cloud. By starting with
the AWS Marketplace, customers are assured that they are beginning with a
pre-tested and supported solution built by BMC, Red Hat and Amazon, reducing
risk and speeding time to delivery of cloud-based applications.

BMC Application Diagnostics available through the AWS Marketplace is fully
compatible with BMC’s APMaaS solution, providing customers with a simple,
easy-to-consume offering for gaining application insight. The data provided by
BMC Application Diagnostics is valuable to IT operations personnel tasked with
ensuring cloud-based applications to deliver appropriate end-user performance.
The data can also be fed back to developers to provide deep insights into how
applications actually operate in production, fostering a cycle of continuous
innovation and improvement.

More information about BMC’s broad portfolio of application management
solutions is available at the BMC Application Management community, which
provides a portal for support, education and tips.

The BMC APM-as-a-Service solution is immediately available in the AWS
Marketplace. For more information, please:
