AWS Summit 2023: Chronosphere is here!

Chronosphere has touched down as an AWS partner at this year’s AWS Summit in New York City. We’re excited to be in the Big Apple this week (I’ll take a bacon, egg, and cheese, please!) where summer is in the air, cloud practitioners from across the globe have gathered, and a day of learning, networking, and collaboration about all things AWS lies ahead.

Let’s dive into some examples of how Chronosphere helps AWS customers every day, and why you should stop by our chocolatey booth this year.  

How Chronosphere alleviates cloud native observability challenges for AWS customers

Chronosphere is an AWS technology partner that offers the most cost-effective observability platform for customers running containers and serverless (think ECS, EKS, Lambda, etc.) in the AWS cloud. Chronosphere’s observability platform equips you with the solution you need to ensure the overall health of your applications and infrastructure running on AWS. Leverage Chronosphere + AWS CloudWatch metrics to gain full visibility into your cloud native environment from infrastructure to applications.

While this is our first time at AWS Summit, for years we’ve helped AWS customers of all different sizes defeat their cloud native observability challenges. Together, Chronosphere and AWS arm customers with a proven solution to help them deliver reliable, performant, and highly available solutions on cloud native architectures. We help our joint customers like Robinhood, DoorDash, Affirm, Aurora, Zillow, and Abnormal Security control costs and improve developer productivity. 

For example, before partnering with Chronosphere, AI-based email security platform Abnormal Security’s homegrown Prometheus + Grafana monitoring solution had reached its limits: the company’s 10-12 million active metrics were on pace to soar to 50 million, and constant outages plagued the infrastructure team. As much as 80%-95% of metrics came from real-time services deployed via Amazon Elastic Container Service (ECS). Also, the Prometheus instance itself ran on Amazon EC2 r5.24xlarges with 768 GiB of memory, one of the most expensive and memory-intensive instance types. Prometheus uses vertical vs. horizontal scaling, which meant Prometheus wasn’t highly available. Any disruption with the EC2 instance caused multiple downstream issues.

Abnormal’s move to Chronosphere allowed the company to reduce Mean Time to Detect (MTTD) and Mean Time to Repair (MTTR) by at least 80%, and secure faster dashboard loading by 8-10x. Even better, Abnormal has saved millions of dollars with Chronosphere which they estimate is 10x more cost-effective than alternative SaaS and self-managed options.

Here’s what to expect from Chronosphere at the event:

Who will win the hundred dollar Tim Tam Slam Challenge? 

Because Chronosphere was co-founded by Martin Mao (CEO) and Rob Skillington (CTO), two proud Aussies from the Land Down Under, on Australia Day we like to celebrate the company’s roots with our annual Tim Tam Slam. Never heard of it? It involves a Tim Tam chocolate wafer cookie, a beverage, and a zeal for competition. 

This year, we’re challenging you to try out your Tim Tam Slam skills for a chance to win $100 (and find out how to improve your MTTR while you’re there). You can stop by our Booth #1019 to take part. 

Watch Martin and Rob go head-to-head in the Tim Tam Slam!

Book a demo and enter the raffle for The Mighty Bowser Lego Set

Stop by the Expo Floor Booth #1019 to talk about ways your team can help exceed customer expectations, and improve developer productivity with over 14,000 hours saved per year. If you book a demo, walk away with a free observability shirt. 

Oh, and make sure you enter the raffle at our booth, for a chance to win The Mighty Bowser Lego Set.
