Compuware APM Extends Leadership In Big Data With Enhanced Visibility Into Hadoop, NoSQL And Cassandra

Compuware APM for Big Data Delivers Immediate Insight Into Big Data Deployments to Speed Problem Resolution, Optimize Performance and Reduce Risk

DETROIT, Feb. 26, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company delivering a new generation of application performance management (APM), today announced that Compuware APM for Big Data now offers enhanced support and out-of-the-box dashboards that enable organizations to optimize big data projects through unmatched visibility into Hadoop, NoSQL and Cassandra deployments. Now organizations have deeper insight into big data workloads and transactions to quickly find the root cause of slow jobs and failures in minutes, instead of hours or days.

Enhancements for Hadoop enable operations teams to gain deep insight into the most active users in a cluster with automatic profiling of intensive jobs. Problem patterns, including data shuffle across the network, can be quickly identified as well as resource utilization and tracking to enable charge-back models.

New enhancements in Compuware APM for Big Data include:

-- Enhanced out-of-the-box, zero configuration dashboards for Hadoop, with direct correlation of map and reduce tasks to users, pools, queues and jobs. This gives users unprecedented insight into performance of the cluster in relation to Hadoop-specific metrics and resources consumed by jobs.

-- Greater insight into Hadoop Distributed File System (HDFS) and how data is moved across the cluster. This allows organizations to identify problem patterns with data locality and ensure distribution is optimized.

-- Full support for Cassandra, including recently released CQL3 . Companies can also optimize end-to-end transactions using the latest versions of MongoDB, Hbase and many other NoSQL databases.   

"Compuware APM for Big Data is built with the understanding that many organizations are facing major challenges in taming complex deployments and need meaningful, easy and rapid insight in order to maximize their investments and minimize their risks," said Steve Tack, Vice President of Product Management for Compuware's APM business unit. "Our newest innovations and enhancements provide specific advancements across Hadoop, NoSQL and Cassandra to make big data simpler and more straightforward. Compuware APM for Big Data will allow our customers to leap ahead in the analytics race."
