An early preview of the latest Hyperic HQ 5.0 open source edition is now available for download.
Major enhancements for the new version include better support for vFabric products, including new plugins for tc Server 2.7, Web Server 5.1, and GemFire 6.6.2.
The new version also includes many hard-to-see new improvements such as bug fixes, and improved performance and scalability.
While Hyperic remains an independent web and middleware infrastructure monitoring solution, significant effort has also been put into this release to increase its functionality while working in VMware vFabric Application Performance Management (APM) suite.
For Hyperic users that are interested in trying out the next generation application management suite designed for cloud-based applications, the APM Beta is still open to Hyperic customers.
This is an early beta of the Hyperic HQ 5.0 release, and is not meant for production environments.
