The world of monitoring has fundamentally changed

Today’s monitoring tools were not designed for the complex, dynamic and interconnected nature of cloud-native architecture. Companies need a monitoring solution that is as scalable, reliable and flexible as the cloud-native apps they need to monitor.

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.

Outgrowing Prometheus Monitoring

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,

The cost of free

Engineers spend too much time extending the functionality of Prometheus and firefighting reliability problems.

Cognitive load

During incidents, engineers have to context switch between data sources to get the metrics they needed. 

Missing data

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.

Read why chose Chronosphere to scale Prometheus.

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.

Constant overages

Existing solutions don’t provide flexibility in data retention and granularity, leaving companies with skyrocketing costs.

Flying blind

For companies that pride themselves in making data driven decisions, losing visibility means losing their competitive edge.

Read why a delivery app company chose Chronosphere for cloud-native apps.
