Correlsense Announces Collaboration With Red Hat, Focused on Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) 
OpenShift and SharePath Provide Seamless PaaS Management Through
Entire Application Delivery Cycle 
FRAMINGHAM, MA -- (Marketwire) -- 03/26/13 --  Correlsense, an
application management and IT monitoring software provider, today
announced it is partnering with Red Hat to focus on collaboration
around Red Hat's Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) offering, OpenShift.
This partnership allows OpenShift customers and community access to
SharePath, a leading application performance management solution. By
using the OpenShift platform and SharePath together, both developers
and IT operations professionals will have the ability to manage
applications from development, through testing, deployment and in
production. 
Since its launch, developers have leveraged OpenShift for deploying
PaaS-based applications in a streamlined and efficient manner. Users
can upload their Java, Ruby, PHP, Perl, Python or Node.js code and
leave the configuration, management and scaling headaches behind.
With the application monitoring capabilities of SharePath, IT
operations and development can use one tool to manage the performance
of their applications after deployment. SharePath traces 100% of user
transactions across multiple tiers and stacks, auto-detects
interdependencies, and correlates the performance data on a single
dashboard in real time. 
"PaaS delivers velocity, efficiency and scalability in terms of IT
service delivery but requires a paradigm shift in terms of
application management," said Bernd Harzog, analyst for Performance
and Capacity Management at The Virtualization Practice. "The
traditional lines of responsibility between IT ops and development
have become blurred. Application management tools must now serve both
of these IT stakeholders in a common language, the business
transactions, while providing wide coverage to all cartridges,
programming languages, and interfaces." 
"OpenShift provides developers with a compelling application
development platform that manages the stack so that they can focus on
their code. Collaborating with organizations like Correlsense allows
us to expand the breadth of leading technologies available for use by
developers using the OpenShift platform in the cloud. We're excited
to continue our work with Correlsense as part of our OpenShift
ecosystem," said Vijay Sarathy, Director, Cloud Ecosystem at Red Hat. 
Besides the transaction tracing and analytical capabilities,
SharePath also offers deep code-level diagnostics into Java and .NET
applications. This allows both IT operations and developers to
isolate code-related issues in production. SharePath is available
immediately to the OpenShift community and does not require deep,
code-level instrumentation. The product implementation can be done
easily without introducing any performance overhead to the user's
environment. 
"Enterprises have different needs for cloud and are struggling to get
existing monitoring tools to cope with the dynamic nature of PaaS,"
said Oren Elias, Correlsense EVP of Strategy and Business
Development. "We feel confident that with OpenShift and SharePath
working together Enterprises will have the means to succeed in PaaS
environments."
