DETROIT, Feb. 11, 2013 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Compuware Corporation (Nasdaq:CPWR), the technology performance company, today announced the publication of its latest Application Performance Management (APM) Best Practices collection, titled: "Optimizing Cloud & Virtualized Applications."

Cloud and virtualization are two of the most transformational technology trends in the IT industry today. Initially, a common concern with the migration to these environments is centered on data integrity and security. As adoption moves from departmental applications and test environments to business-critical applications, managing performance and availability has become a critical issue. This volume examines the business and operational challenges associated with these changes.

Topics covered in this new volume include:

  • application performance challenges of working in a virtualized environment;
  • why performance management is easier in public clouds rather than in on-premise clouds;
  • the challenge of managing hybrid-cloud applications;
  • paradigm shift in cost structure and its risk in the public cloud; and
  • how to monitor and analyze performance of the Windows Azure Storage Service.
