Application monitoring company New Relic has announced that it signed an agreement to acquire Pixie Labs. Pixie Labs is a provider of a Kubernetes observability platform that lets users set all of their applications’ metrics, events, logs, and traces from a single CLI command. 

New Relic also announced it will be offering a self-managed version of Pixie as an open-source project, called Pixie Core, to continue Pixie Labs’ commitment to open source. It will also launch Pixie by New Relic, which is a fully managed Pixie solution, and Pixie by New Relic, Enterprise Edition, which offers industry-specific solutions. 

“As we move forward together, I’m excited by the opportunity to accelerate Pixie’s roadmap to empower developers with instant Kubernetes-native application observability. Pixie’s technology will complement New Relic’s powerful Kubernetes observability features in New Relic One, including the Kubernetes Cluster Explorer,” said Lew Cirne, founder and CEO of New Relic.

Element Unify launched to align IT and OT

The solution aligns the two groups around contextualized IoT data. According to Element, this will provide companies with rich insights, leading to smarter and more efficient operations. 

The company explained that traditionally, IT and OT teams have been disconnected from each other, leading to data silos, inconsistent data quality, and poor data governance. 

Element Unify contains four core components: the ability to ingest data from IT and OT systems, the ability to combine data, management of enterprise data semantics, and a visual graphical map of an Industrial IoT deployment that shows context and interdependencies of systems.
