Microsoft has completed the acquisition of BlueStripe Software, a provider of application management technology. BlueStripe’s solution helps map, monitor and troubleshoot distributed applications across heterogeneous operating systems and multiple data center and cloud environments. BlueStripe is commonly used by customers to extend the value of Microsoft System Center by adding application-aware infrastructure performance monitoring.
BlueStripe’s enterprise-class solution enables IT professionals to move from monitoring IT at the infrastructure level to gaining visibility into applications at the transaction level. The technology discovers and maps applications and dependencies, pinpoints problems for faster resolution, and helps maintain SLAs across complex underlying infrastructure. By mapping the structure of distributed applications, BlueStripe also helps in the process of updating applications to more modern platforms and migrating to the cloud.
BlueStripe employees will be part of Microsoft, BlueStripe’s solution will be an integral part of Microsoft’s management products and services, like System Center and Operations Management Suite (OMS). The BlueStripe solutions will be discontinued in the near term while Microsoft works on these updates, although Microsoft will continue to support existing BlueStripe customers during this time.
