Unique Approach to Application State Capture Has Broad Applicability to ALM and APM Processes
Replay Solutions (www.replaysolutions.com), the leader in deep application monitoring and diagnostics and defect resolution technology, today announced the company has been granted U.S. Patent No. 7,958,497 for the unique state capture techniques used in its software recording, replay and rapid defect resolution technology. When combined with two earlier patent grants covering the extraction of computer execution information and detection of race conditions, this patent completes Replay Solutions’ core intellectual property platform with 9 collateral patents also pending.
The three patents cover the fundamental technologies that enable the state of any complex, multi-tier software application to be captured, described, communicated and later restored by developers, QA, operations and support teams. This ability enables software teams to rapidly analyze and quickly resolve defects, performance problems and security issues both within and outside of their original execution environment, with zero impact on uptime and service availability.
The result of over 7 years of research and development, Replay Solutions’ technology captures unwanted software behavior with 100% fidelity, allowing enhanced data such as debug logging, database activity and user actions to be extracted, amplified and analyzed after the event occurs.
“Replay Solutions’ technology is often referred to as the software time machine. The ability to go back in time and restore the entire software state and actually reproduce software execution, even for complex multi-tier applications, has opened up a new field of applications for our technology,” said Jonathan Lindo, co-founder and SVP of Technology. “Our patents are core to any technology or product that extracts execution-level detail from live applications and we believe we have barely scratched the surface of their potential.”
Filed in 2006 by co-founders Jeff Daudel and Jonathan Lindo, this patent marks the third successful patent application for the company with nine additional patents currently pending.
