SAN FRANCISCO – May 13, 2015 – AppDynamics, a leading application intelligence company, is working closely with HBO GO to ensure performance and availability of its application infrastructure for streaming of its popular original programming. HBO has seen its streaming audience grow significantly as it continues to be an on-demand programming leader through its HBO GO application.
AppDynamics has provided HBO GO with deep visibility into its application performance to better understand where and why performance bottlenecks occur and to address these issues to help it scale for its fast-growing audience. AppDynamics enables HBO GO to dynamically respond to load changes, scaling selected services or functions up or down as needed.
“AppDynamics has been an important partner as we rapidly grow our streaming offerings,” said Gilman Wong, senior vice president, digital products at HBO. “Hit programming like Game of Thrones and True Detective triggers tremendous surges in viewership, and it’s critical that our application architecture is completely prepared to handle the load. AppDynamics gives us the visibility to find and fix potential choke points before they impact the viewing experience.”
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform provides HBO GO the ability to see transactions end-to-end throughout its complex environment. Smart custom dashboards display key, selected metrics from throughout the application environment that help the HBO team to rapidly identify trouble spots and drill down into root cause before viewers are impacted.
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform constantly learns and compares application performance against automatically calculated performance baselines, and then sends alerts to the HBO GO team when performance deviates from expected levels. In some cases, it takes additional actions, such as gathering relevant diagnostic data from the affected component.
“I personally am a huge Game of Thrones fan, as many of our staff are,” said Jyoti Bansal, AppDynamics founder and CEO. “And I definitely appreciate the ability to watch it at my convenience. Being part of the team that makes such services possible — that are so convenient and adaptable to our busy lifestyles — is a real source of pride for us here at AppDynamics. HBO GO shows us the real difference software can make in all aspects of our lives.”
The AppDynamics Application Intelligence Platform is a comprehensive solution enabling companies to maximize business performance. The platform is designed and architected to give business users the certainty that their business is running at its best, to give IT the operational visibility and control they need, and to give end users the great experiences they’ve come to expect and demand.
