With cloud computing gaining so much buzz recently, Keynote Systems threw its hat into the cloud application performance monitoring arena.The Keynote Cloud Application Perspective (CAP) examines Web application performance inside private clouds, which are applications sitting behind a firewall. Customers place CAP software agents on their own private or third party cloud infrastructure. The MyKeynote portal provides dashboards, so companies can evaluate alerts regarding Web application performance. Businesses can set the system to examine performance in 1, 5, 15, 30, or 60 minute intervals, and various diagnostic features help them pinpoint performance bottlenecks. Pricing for the Keynote service is usage based, with the monitoring of a single system starting at $500 per month.
