Managed services provider and AWS partner 2nd Watch is now using New Relic application performance data as part of its managed services offering for workloads running on Amazon’s public cloud.

2nd Watch’s managed services for AWS users provides Service Level Agreements, high availability and billing management, and its software and services have been found to save clients up to 70 percent on their AWS deployments. Among the 60,000 AWS instances it manages, 2nd Watch oversees brands such as Adobe Business Catalyst and Red Lion Hotels.

Many managed service providers have begun helping customers manage the costs associated with their cloud-based infrastructure on public cloud platforms like AWS. For instance, Datapipe announced earlier this year its Datapipe Cloud Analytics for Amazon Web Services, which uses Datapipe’s Big Data Engine to collect and analyze AWS customer usage and provide analytics, recommendations and tools for better application performance.

Meanwhile, New Relic has also been leveraged in on-premise cloud deployments through service providers such as Cloudscaling, which last year announced a partnership with New Relic to provide real-time application performance monitoring on its Open Cloud System cloud infrastructure.

New Relic provides a SaaS-based application performance monitoring solution that provides web and native mobile application monitoring, and a simple environment for troubleshooting and tuning application performance. Earlier this year, the company raised $100 million in financing to put towards product development and expanding the company’s international presence.

“Many of our largest AWS customers want to simplify management of their cloud infrastructure,” New Relic Business Development and Customer Success VP Bill Lapcevic said in a statement. “We’re excited to partner with 2nd Watch to help enterprises improve how they build and run modern software, using our SaaS solution as another great way to eliminate unnecessarily complex and expensive infrastructure.”

There is no additional cost for customers, according to 2nd Watch EVP of managed services Joel Rosenberger. “We continuously look for opportunities to improve our already robust Managed Services offering for the enterprise by including industry leading tools like New Relic for our customers,” he said in a statement.
