Compuware unveils a solution to optimize Hadoop on AWS

Compuware released an application performance management (APM) solution for Hadoop on Amazon Elastic MapReduce, available now in the AWS Marketplace.  According to a company statement, this solution allows organizations 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.

Compuware’s focus on cloud performance management seems to be a good one.  They have cloud monitoring and management tools that appear to be gaining in popularity.  This is another feather in that cap, and should get Compuware some good traction.

As enterprises roll out cloud computing solutions, including those that include big data, performance is going to become more of an issue.  Clearly, it’s something that needs to be monitored and managed.  Compuware is creating and collecting tools to do just that.
