  • Deployment markers allowing developers to tag releases enabling them to monitor performance over time and quickly identify problematic code releases.
  • Access to New Relic across different teams — Multidev environments, Dev, Test, and Live — enables users to catch performance issues before they go live and deploy with confidence.

Pantheon users will receive access to New Relic APM Pro immediately and can access site performance analytics in the dashboard of the Pantheon platform. More information on the integration can be found at

Web Heroes Who Love Pantheon with New Relic

Eric Peterson, Marketing Systems Engineering at Tableau Software
“Agility — the ability to rapidly build, measure, learn, and repeat — is paramount in a high velocity organization like Tableau. There’s no better platform for building websites than Pantheon and there’s no better way to measure our performance than New Relic.”

Abe Brewster, Chief Technology Officer at
“New Relic on Pantheon has been instrumental for us in tuning our application, ferreting out the source of issues, and determining if the source is the user, application, or platform. We monitor it daily, and in certain cases it has pointed the way for us to reduce our database load by 75%. Every developer has it open during deploys and feature upgrades to watch for bottlenecks or new processes going haywire at Patch’s large scale. It is no exaggeration to say that it’s a critical tool for Patch and we look forward to deeper integration.”
