Check out Application Insights in this demo-heavy interview with Vlad. Pretty cool to see how anyone can go from zero infrastructure to creating a trial in minutes and then a couple minutes later start to see cloud based availability data on their application… and for free. Some people say it is a developer tool and I can understand why it is confusing because application insights is inside of Visual Studio Online. Don’t be fooled though as App Insights has very many similar capabilities as System Center Operations Manager (SCOM) and even some additional ones. This is one of many important tasks of the operations folks in DevOps and with application performance monitoring (APM) it really can help with the feedback loop into development and assist to solve problems quicker.
