Optimizing application performance in Windows Azure

Macmillan English, a global publishing company based in the U.K., decided to migrate its online learning applications to Windows Azure in order to better serve students in India, Singapore and other parts of the world far from the company’s data center in the U.K. However, it found that the monitoring tools built into Windows Azure were not enough to provide the level of visibility it needed into the performance of these applications. In order to get the visibility it needed to monitor, optimize and scale its applications, it chose AppDynamics for Windows Azure, an application performance management (APM) solution available as an add-on in the Windows Azure store. Read the full case study to learn how Macmillan English optimizes the performance of its Windows Azure applications with AppDynamics.
