Recently, Gartner released Gartner APM Magic Quadrant in 2021. Alibaba cloud became the only cloud manufacturer selected in China, and its product capabilities and strategic vision were highly recognized by Gartner analysts.

Gartner is the world’s most authoritative it research and consulting firm   The APM Magic Quadrant report provides a reliable reference standard for enterprises to select APM tools. The evaluation application real-time monitoring service (arms), as the core product of Alibaba cloud APM, is jointly participated by cloud monitoring and logging services. Gartner commented on Alibaba cloud APM:

  • China has the strongest influence: Alibaba cloud is the largest cloud service provider in China. Alibaba cloud users can use cloud monitoring tools to meet their observability needs.
  • Open source integration: Alibaba cloud attaches great importance to integrating open source standards and products (such as Prometheus) into its platform.
  • Cost advantage: compared with using third-party APM products on Alibaba cloud, Alibaba cloud APM products are more cost-effective.

At present, enterprises are gradually accelerating the pace of digital transformation, resulting in frequent updates of IT systems and a sharp increase in application complexity. Frontier technologies such as microservices and containerization, which were only concerned by technology-based companies before, are also gradually emerging in traditional enterprises, and cloud services have long become the necessary technical services for enterprises to operate digital businesses on a large scale. Application performance management (APM) with user experience as the core has attracted extensive attention. APM shows great value in helping enterprises realize digital transformation and intelligent operation and maintenance.

For example, after a user opens an application, it may involve thousands of calls. The response time of opening such a page is not only an indicator of front-end applications, but also an important indicator that all service centers should care about. When problems occur, the traditional operation and maintenance is inefficient and easy to lose information through troubleshooting and telephone notification. How to monitor the operation of the whole link in real time, quickly locate the root cause of problems and correspond to the responsible person are the problems that enterprises need to solve in the process of service.

In 2017, Alibaba officially commercialized the application of real-time monitoring service arms, a monitoring tool that has been honed internally for many years. As a cloud native integrated observability platform, arms provides full stack performance monitoring and end-to-end full link tracking and diagnosis capabilities. At the same time, combined with the log data analysis capabilities of Alibaba cloud log service (SLS) and the rich cloud service and infrastructure monitoring capabilities of cloud monitoring, users can easily complete one-stop monitoring of user experience, applications, cloud services and containers.

Alibaba cloud has not only established a rich product layout in the APM field, but also its product capabilities have been recognized by many customers. With the help of arms, daolv technology built and started the application real-time monitoring system based on big data platform in a few minutes, which greatly improved the efficiency of IT personnel. No matter any problem occurs in the application of China Resources Vanguard, arms can clearly show which line of code the problem is in, which greatly shortens the time to repair the fault.

With the acceleration of enterprise digital transformation, the performance of various enterprise applications directly affects the smooth development of digital business, and the market demand for APM products is still expanding. After more than 10 years of technical practice, Alibaba cloud has the largest cloud native product family and open source ecology in China, providing more than 100 innovative products such as cloud native bare metal server, cloud native database, container service, micro service, observability and high availability, so that enterprises can move more calmly towards cloud native architecture.
