An expanding strategic partnership

Google Next ’24 is upon us and we have a few things we’d like to share with you. Since announcing our strategic partnership a year ago, we’ve made great progress, both go-to-market and engineering-wise. Our latest achievement is an integration between Chronosphere and Google Cloud Personalized Service Health. Keep reading to learn more!

Supercharge incident response with our Personalized Service Health integration

Personalized Service Health allows you to “Gain visibility into disruptive events impacting Google Cloud products and services relevant to your projects.”  In other words, it is your unique status page that shows you only issues related to services you actually use in Google Cloud. It supports 50+ Google Cloud products and services.

When on-call engineers respond to an issue, they need to understand what changed, where it occurred, and when it happened. These insights are critical to investigating and remediating issues when they arise. Chronosphere’s Change Events solution allows customers to centralize their change event data and use it to understand their system’s state better and debug issues faster. Now, Google Cloud customers can ingest events impacting Google Cloud products and services relevant to their projects into Chronosphere.

Personalized Service Health matched with Chronosphere’s Change Event Tracking is like peanut butter and jelly — much better together.


Seventy-seven percent of IT incidents are caused by a change, whether it be a system change, workload change, or even a change in the observability platform. Moreover, 66% of MTTR is spent identifying the change causing the problem.

In the era of cloud native technologies, the rate of change is staggering. Multiple independent service teams are pushing new code multiple times daily, configurations are constantly being tweaked, and infrastructure scales up and down within minutes. 

Each of these changes is an opportunity to introduce an issue that can cascade through the system and cause degradation or failure. 

Chronosphere Change Event Tracking consolidates all change events from various integrated sources (Ex. LaunchDarkly, Buildkite, and now Google Cloud Personalized Service Health) to quickly detect patterns and discern correlations across your telemetry data. 

In the dashboard below, a user can quickly toggle on Google Cloud health events and overlay them on the charts to see if there is a correlation between a service health event and a change in performance. This information enables engineers to respond to issues quickly, reducing developer toil and improving their situational awareness during an incident.

“We saw immediate value in Chronosphere’s new Google Cloud Personalized Service Health integration. Having highly relevant incidents impacting the Google products we rely on overlayed in our most critical dashboards saves a lot of time. It’s great to see Chronosphere and Google Cloud working together so closely!”
