AppDynamics Description

AppDynamics is a San Francisco-based IT operations analytics and application performance management (APM) provider. The company was founded in 2008 by Jyoti Bansal, who worked for APM tech provider Wily Technologies (now part of CA Technologies) prior to founding AppDynamics. Their services are centred around monitoring and managing the availability and performance of applications within a broad IT environment.

AppDynamics has numerous offices around the world, in the United States, United Kingdom, Germany, France, Spain, Australia, Singapore, India and Japan.

Solutions offered by AppDynamics include, but are not limited to real-user monitoring (RUM) for browser and mobile, synthetic monitoring, database and server monitoring and application analytics.

AppDynamics got into hot water with CA Technologies, who filed a patent infringement suit against the company over their APM technology. CA Technologies had acquired the patents through their acquisition of Wily Technologies in 2006, the same company where Bansal had worked on the design and development of their performance management products. The dispute was settled two years later in favour of CA Technologies. Under a similar claim that Wily Technologies patents had been infringed on, CA Technologies went after New Relic in 2012.

Notable customers of AppDynamics are, or were UBS, Net-a-Porter, DIRECTV, NASDAQ, The Container Store , Sony, eHarmony, Cisco, Overstock, Expedia Affiliate Network and Hallmark.

While AppDynamics monitoring solution includes synthetic data and RUM data, we do not know whether their platform is suitable to use within a multi-CDN solution.

CEDEXIS Description

Cedexis is a provider of intelligent DNS and traffic management services. The company has offices in France, the United Kingdom, and the United States. The founders, former Akamai employees, started the company in 2009 with the goal to optimise webperformance accross content delivery networks (CDNs) and clouds for companies that are looking for 100% availability of their services.

Cedexis collects data via their Radar product. Website owners place a javascript tag on their website and help in the collection of performance data and in return, the website owners get access to the data. Cedexis then uses the data in their intelligent decision making platform Openmix. The Openmix platform allows customers to add the CNAMEs they receive from multiple CDN providers, select the corresponding CDN and then based on the performance data, the fastest CDN’s CNAME will be returned to the end-user making the DNS request. The latest addition to their product portfolio is called Impact, a tool to make the performance impact on Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) clear.

Note that Cedexis does not include a content delivery network in its offering. Customers interested in their services will need to acquire multiple CDNs elsewhere in order to build a multi-CDN solution.

Current and or past customers of Cedexis include Microsoft, Airbus, Dailymotion, AirFrance.
