Metrics without Compromise

The Problem

As enterprises prepare for a cloud native world, there is a major transformation in technology stacks. There is a migration from large monoliths to small microservices along with a migration from physical servers to VMs and now containers. Not only are there many more components, but the number of relationships between these components have exploded exponentially. This all leads to systems that are increasingly difficult to monitor due to the increased complexity and amount of monitoring data being produced.

None of the existing tools today are equipped to even store the vast amounts of data being produced, let alone make use of them.

The Solution

The Chronosphere platform is an end to end monitoring platform purpose built for enterprises as their technology stacks evolve for a cloud native world. Having built M3 in open source to solve this problem for themselves, the team at Chronosphere is now  bringing the solution to enterprises everywhere.

Use Cases

Infrastructure Monitoring

Monitor every component of your infrastructure, from containers to VMs to physical servers and network switches.

Application Monitoring

Monitor every one of your microservices, the relationships between them and the dependencies between your applications and infrastructure.

Business Monitoring

Monitor your top line business metrics and drill down to the underlying applications and infrastructure.

Unlimited Scale and Performance

The Chronosphere team were the original creators and maintainers of the open source metrics platform, M3, which is used to power the Chronosphere platform today. The team has scaled M3 up to one of the largest metrics systems in the world and with no sign of slowing down, it is guaranteed to scale up with your business.

Scale is great, but scaling without controls can be dangerous. Chronosphere adds enterprise focused features to M3 such as intelligent rate limiting and security and access control such that all teams within your organization can leverage the power of a single centralized platform, with fine grain controls, resource limitations and accountability.

Highest Levels of Reliability

The Chronosphere platform has been battle tested in production for years while running one of the world’s largest monitoring workloads. It has maintained the highest levels of reliability during that time and the same world-class team can now run the same platform for you and your business.

Each configuration provides an increasing level of reliability, but comes at varying costs. Chronosphere puts that choice in your hands so you can pick what is best based on your requirements.

Low Costs and Efficiency Controls

When dealing with scale and large amounts of data, cost quickly becomes an inhibitor. Luckily, Chronosphere’s users do not have to compromise on that either. Chronosphere’s underlying technology has been proven by multiple users to be an order of magnitude more cost efficient than their legacy solutions.

Additionally, Chronosphere’s product comes with efficiency controls built in. This means that you can control both the level of detail you want to store your data in as well as the length of time you would like the data to be retained for. This can be configured in a uniform policy across all of your monitoring data or just a select subset of your data.

Automated Data Utilization

Chronosphere’s product comes with visualization and alerting capabilities that are specifically designed to utilize the sheer amount of data being produced and stored. These capabilities come with a focus on data recognition and automation as manual configuration does not scale when we are dealing with tens of thousands of dashboards and millions of alerts.

Open Standards Compatibility

Being built on an open source product, Chronosphere strongly believes in open source standards and building transferable skills. This is why the platform supports all the standard CNCF open source metric ingestion formats such as StatsD, Carbon and Prometheus as well as all the standard open source query languages such as PromQL, Graphite and SQL. With such a wide range of open standard support, you are not locked into the Chronosphere platform.
