Today’s monitoring tools were not designed for the complex, dynamic and interconnected nature of cloud-native architecture. Companies need a solution that is as scalable, reliable and flexible as the apps they need to monitor.
The world of monitoring has fundamentally changed
The New Monitoring Paradigm
Control: Vendor to User
The cloud-native ecosystem breaks open the black box and shifts control over collecting, storing and accessing monitoring data to the users.
Tools: Siloed to Centralized
The interdependence between infrastructure, applications and the business in a cloud-native world requires visibility up and down the stack with a single tool.
Apps: Static to Ephemeral
Treating all monitoring data uniformly no longer make sense in a world where everything is variable and constantly changing. Data needs to be customized to best match the use case.
Companies born in the cloud-native era like Tecton, a ML startup, start with Prometheus for monitoring, but quickly run into issues with siloed data, a lack of long-term storage and wasted engineering time firefighting the monitoring system.
“With Chronosphere, we basically don’t think about monitoring anymore as we spin deployments up and down.”
– Ravi Trivedi, Tecton.ai
The cost of free
Engineers spend too much time extending the functionality of Prometheus and firefighting reliability problems.
During incidents, engineers have to context switch between data sources to get the metrics they needed.
With Prometheus, teams had no access to data more than a week old. Even more recent data was frequently dropped to make room for new metrics.
Adopting Cloud Native
Companies adopting cloud-native, including one of the largest delivery apps in the world, try to use their existing hosted monitoring solutions for their cloud-native workloads, but find that it leads to a loss of visibility, a lack of reliability and uncontrollable cost overages.
“We don’t even discuss metric loss with Chronosphere. It has strong foundations that provide the scalability and reliability we need.”
– Observability lead, delivery app company
House of cards
A single developer’s seemingly benign change frequently overloads the whole monitoring system.
Existing solutions don’t provide flexibility in data retention and granularity, leaving companies with skyrocketing costs.
For companies that pride themselves in making data driven decisions, losing visibility means losing their competitive edge.
