WALTHAM, Mass. - Nov. 17, 2020 - PRLog -- Software intelligence company Dynatrace announced today the 4th generation of its distributed tracing and code-level analysis technology, PurePath®. PurePath 4 captures and analyzes end-to-end transactions across multicloud environments, and at near-zero overhead. Dynatrace has extended this technology to automatically support OpenTelemetry and W3C Trace Context as well as the latest cloud-native architectures, including service mesh and serverless computing for Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform.

These enhancements increase the breadth of data and the scope of the cloud ecosystem encompassed in PurePath distributed traces, providing DevOps, CloudOps, and cloud application teams deep, automatic, and intelligent observability at scale for the most advanced cloud environments. In addition, PurePath 4 uniquely supports hybrid-cloud environments, spanning from mobile apps through to public clouds, backend databases, mainframes, and business applications. By leveraging PurePath to automatically gather all transaction traces at scale, analyze them in real-time, and assemble them for end-to-end understanding, Dynatrace customers can optimize applications proactively, innovate faster, and scale smoothly.

"One of the reasons we chose Dynatrace for observability of our cloud platforms was its best-in-class distributed tracing technology," said Robert Trueman, Head of Software Engineering at CDL. "Enhancing PurePath to automatically collect OpenTelemetry data and extending it to the latest cloud-native architectures allows us to connect our most advanced cloud technologies with the rest of our cloud platform, ensuring we maintain precise, end-to-end observability and understanding across our ever-advancing cloud environment. This precision across such a wide breadth helps us to manage our application performance efficiently, improve cross-team collaboration with the business, and optimize user experience proactively."

Dynatrace has unified PurePath 4 with its auto-discovery and continuous instrumentation technology, OneAgent®, and its continuous topology mapping technology, Smartscape®. The combination enables the Dynatrace AI-engine, Davis™, to deliver precise answers with code-level detail, now for the most advanced cloud environments. Digital teams quickly gain value and speed through automatically reducing bottlenecks across increasingly dynamic and complex environments, dramatically decreasing alert noise and wasted time chasing false positives. Having a single source of truth across network, infrastructure, application, and user experience layers allows for easier collaboration and makes digital teams more efficient and effective.
