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.

Deepfield Description

DeepField Networks is a network intelligence company founded in 2011 by Arbor Networks founder Craig Labovitz and Joe Eggleston. Coming out of stealth mode in with their tool in 2012, the company has been running operations from their headquarters in Michigan, United States.

The DeepField Cloud Intelligence monitoring tool allows clients to keep track of their network performance, peering traffic and CDN traffic. Metrics like throughput, traffic volume and latency are visualised in a dashboard.

The Cloud Genome component of Cloud Intelligence maps a variety of Internet services such as sites, cloud stores and CDNs and gives deeper insights into the entire content delivery chain.

Next to performance monitoring and the Cloud Genome tech, DeepField also offers DeepField Defender, a DDoS protection service.

Customers of DeepField are, or have been A10 Networks, Telecom Argentina and Internet2.

While Deepfield’s intelligence includes synthetic monitoring data, we do not know if their platform is suitable for a multi-CDN setup. In addition, as DeepField does not provide a loadbalancing or CDN balancing service, nor CDNs, more is needed to make their data actionable within a multi-CDN solution.
