Blue Medora today announced Amazon RDS, Amazon Aurora and Amazon DynamoDB management packs for vRealize Operations. The new Amazon management packs extend visibility into key metrics, such as query and capacity units, to optimize performance and uptime for databases and the entire IT stack. They are based on technology from SelectStar, Blue Medora’s native database performance, analytics and health monitoring platform.
With the new management pack for Amazon RDS, Blue Medora provides deep-dive visibility for RDS-based database instances. The Amazon Aurora management packs offer query analysis and syntax highlighting to reveal why queries are delayed. Blue Medora also enables Amazon DynamoDB users to see into read/write capacity units and prevent throttle events.


Blue Medora CEO Nathan Owen points to VMware Cloud on AWS as another sign of increased adoption of AWS cloud technologies by VMware customers. To accommodate this growth, Blue Medora enables VMware customers to take advantage of their SelectStar database monitoring technology and expertise to optimize one of the most critical and challenging layers of the IT stack — databases.
By integrating Blue Medora software with vRealize Operations (vROps) depending on the business need, Amazon RDS and Aurora users can unite RDS and Aurora monitoring with other databases, such as PostgreSQL, MySQL, MariaDB, Oracle and Microsoft SQL Server. This integration provides users a single, normalized view of an ever-changing database landscape inside vROps. In addition, new, elegant dashboards enable DynamoDB customers to see historical information and predict future capacity requirements.
