Today, Microsoft announced the acquisition of AVICode, Inc., a market leader in application performance monitoring and diagnostics of .NET applications and services. AVIcode will become a wholly-owned subsidiary of Microsoft and the technology acquired will be rolled into the System Center family of products over time.

As more customers move to cloud-based services, they face additional management complexities. This acquisition represents further Microsoft investment in providing customers with unified management for physical, virtualized and cloud applications, whether they are running in a customer, service provider or Microsoft datacenter. By integrating AVIcode’s product capabilities with System Center, Microsoft will help customers ensure the availability and performance of business-critical applications and services, no matter where they are deployed.

Integration of AVIcode technologies with System Center Operations Manager will help customers close the “management gap” between existing, on-premises applications and those delivered via the cloud, providing a comprehensive view of application performance, end user experience and the ability to respond more quickly to business needs.

Today, customers can immediately benefit from AVIcode capabilities including:

  • Simplified management with automatic discovery of application dependencies and requirements.
  • Optimized business productivity with always-on, real-time monitoring, and rapid error resolution of business-critical applications.
  • Lower cost of managing datacenter services through enterprise-wide standards  to manage custom and disparate applications .

Brad Anderson, corporate vice president of the Management and Security Division, provides more information about this acquisition on the System Center Nexus blog here, and in a recorded video Q&A here.
