What do Groupon, Zynga, Airbnb, Crunchbase and LinkedIn have in common? They know site performance is critical to their success, so they use New Relic app monitoring to make sure their apps are quick and fast. Every second on the web counts and New Relic has been on a tear since raising $10 million in October from Benchmark, Allen & Co., and Trinity Ventures. They now measure over 20 billion metrics each day and have a goal of being ubiquitous – like the Google Analytics of web performance.
New Relic recently agreed to be a Partner Sponsor of our September Disrupt SF conference (where all Hackathon participants will get a free standard account) and we convinced them to give away three free pro accounts today to our readers.
To enter for a chance to win one of these accounts, all you have to do is the following:
1) Follow both TechCrunch and New Relic on Twitter
2) Tweet your app’s URL, making sure to include the #NewRelic hashtag
3) Leave a comment below explaining your app and why you deserve to get one of the free accounts
You can also sign up for a free 30 day free trial here.
We’ll randomly choose three folks to get free New Relic services for the next year. One of these accounts is valued at around $1,800. New Relic tells us it takes less than 2 minutes to setup their app on servers, and works with PHP, Java, Ruby, Python and .Net apps. You have until 7:30pm PT tomorrow to enter. Good luck!
Update: The giveaway is over. We will update this post once we have our winners.
Update: Congratulations to Julian Paas, Vikram Goyal, and Matt Jurek!
