Kubernetes Engine and Google App Engine to enable automated IT

Software intelligence company, Dynatrace,
today announced at Google Cloud Next 2018, automated support for Google
Cloud Platform (GCP) environments. With this announcement, operations
teams can extend the scope of the Dynatrace platform to workloads in
Google Cloud, eliminating manual and siloed monitoring of independent
Kubernetes clusters, and enabling automatic AI-assisted answers to
performance problems across GCP workloads.

"Historically, due to the complexity of enterprise cloud environments,
monitoring solutions for GCP have operated in siloes, focusing only on
Kubernetes clusters or workloads independently. This has rendered
organizations unable to understand how performance problems within one
application or container may be impacting the performance of others. As
a result, enterprises can easily overlook performance issues that put
the software performance at risk," said Alois Reitbauer, VP, Chief
Technology Strategist, Dynatrace.

Dynatrace is one of the only solutions that provides out-of-the-box
distributed tracing for Kubernetes and Google App Engine stacks as well
as full-stack Kubernetes Container Optimized OS support. These
capabilities enable deeper insights into all areas of GCP environments,
in turn allowing businesses to quickly troubleshoot performance issues,
optimize container workloads and more efficiently scale cloud operations.

The new capabilities also provide anomaly detection and problem
causation determination based on Dynatrace's AI engine, to augment the
metrics that are natively provided in Google Cloud by Stackdriver. As a
result, businesses can gain a holistic understanding of the health of
their increasingly complex IT environment more easily.

"GCP is becoming an integral part of enterprise cloud strategies, with
adoption increasing 100
percent year-over-year
. We're seeing this growth within our customer
base, driven largely in part by the increase in Kubernetes and Cloud
Native Computing Foundation projects," said Alois Reitbauer, VP, Chief
Technology Strategist, Dynatrace. "But as businesses migrate to these
platforms, they're faced with extremely complex, distributed
environments that are challenging to monitor. We are unique in our
ability to cater to both cloud-native stacks, and traditional hybrid
cloud stacks, providing a single all-in-one platform with precise
AI-assisted answers."

With this announcement Dynatrace extends its automated support to all
major cloud environments, including GCP, Microsoft Azure, AWS, Red Hat
OpenShift, Pivotal Cloud Foundry and all other leading cloud and
container technologies.
