According to a company statement, it allows organizsations to tame big data at scale, enabling customers to gain faster business value at lower cost, and furthers Compuware APM's ability to provide visibility and troubleshooting insight into big data workloads.
Powered by its patented PurePath Technology, it profiles Amazon EMR jobs, providing drill-down dashboards that can pinpoint the root cause of failed jobs or performance hotspots.
Operation teams gain full visibility into cluster usage based on users or job types, enabling monitoring of service-level agreements and charge-back models to consumers.
By profiling Hadoop jobs in production, operations teams can quickly identify the issues, whether they are misconfigured or unbalanced clusters, poorly coded workloads, or unhealthy hosts.
AWS Cloud commerce vice president, Terry Hanold, said Compuware APM combined with the AWS Cloud provided customers with the technical capabilities they needed to allow them to focus on their business.
"We're excited to welcome Compuware into the AWS Marketplace, where customers will be able to now gain the advantage of Compuware APM for Amazon EMR."
Compuware president of product management, Steve Tack, said the APM made the application performance management for big data both simple and straightforward across the lifecycle from development to test to production
"To help customers grappling with this maturing technology where expertise is scarce, Compuware APM for Amazon EMR adds visibility and helps organisations better manage their big data workloads and transactions, enabling them to leap ahead in the analytics race," he said.
