New Relic announced the general availability of a new infrastructure monitoring solution that helps DevOps, SRE and ITOps teams isolate offending infrastructure components and view all related telemetry — including logs, events, and alerts — in context.
The new solution aims to tackle the three key issues that surround infrastructure: the complexity of infrastructure, handling Kubernetes which results in tens of thousands of components that require modern observability to monitor, and the fact that infrastructure is now the responsibility of all engineers, not just IT operations.
“Our mission is to help every engineer do their best work based on data, not opinions. With today’s announcement we are proud to empower all DevOps, SRE and ITOps engineers with a brand-new experience to monitor, debug and improve their cloud and edge infrastructure,” said Bill Staples, the CEO of New Relic. “We have received overwhelmingly positive feedback from our early-access customers, many of whom are replacing their incumbent solutions with New Relic One. I am looking forward to enabling our customers to expand their infrastructure use cases and get more value from their investment in our platform.”
The key capabilities in New Relic’s monitoring experience include the ability to:
- “Isolate bottlenecks – View and action on queries such as “show me the hosts where CPU utilization is greater than 80%” by filtering and sorting tens of thousands of infrastructure components based on golden signal conditions.
- Access all context – Analyze related entities, change telemetry, logs, alerts, events, golden signals, network metrics, and more, all in context and in a unified experience to identify the root cause and initiate issue resolution.
- Visualize blast radius – View upstream and downstream dependencies of bottleneck components using topology maps to quantify the true extent and impact of an incident.
- Time travel analysis – Go back in time to see health status changes and cascading performance impacts on topology maps using the Timewarp module in the topology maps.
- More value – Realize higher value on your investments with agent based pricing based on New Relic One’s simple and predictable US$0.25 per GB and per-user fees.”
