New Relic to Add Docker Monitoring to Its Software Analytics Platform
|Richard Harris in Enterprise Friday, May 8, 2015|
New Relic has announced a new set of features to its software analytics platform designed to enable greater productivity for developers and agility for IT operations to meet business objectives. These updates reflect an industry shift to more modular, elastic cloud application architectures, built using containers, Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) and microservices.
The New Relic Software Analytics Platform is designed to reflect a modern approach to software with the following new features:
- Docker Monitoring: Available in a public beta, New Relic APM customers can have visibility on the performance of all types of containers they are utilizing, with the goal of providing improved confidence in their Docker deployments.
- Service Maps: Part of New Relic APM, Service Maps are a reimagined version of the App Map to monitor complex microservice-based application architectures, from the browser layer, through the backend apps and services, and out to external third-party services. With application architectures having become more distributed - with some customers having thousands of microservices - the new Service Maps are role-based, which aims to allow individuals or teams to focus on the performance and support of the services they are responsible for.
- Alerts: A new streamlined alerting system which is designed to enable users to focus on fixing problems and eliminate “alert fatigue” with incident rollups. New Relic will now group related alerts into an incident dashboard, which intends to allow the individual responsible to better understand the history of a performance outage and more quickly determine how to fix it. Alerts works across the New Relic Software Analytics Platform, integrates with New Relic’s iOS and Android apps, and is designed to have integrations into services such as Slack, HipChat, OpsGenie, PagerDuty, VictorOps, and Campfire and allow for customizable webhooks for a wide variety of integration possibilities.
New Relic has also announced it is joining the Cloud Foundry Foundation to continue the support of customers and partners investing in this PaaS. As a member, New Relic is contributing the New Relic tile, service broker and build pack with the goal of easing the development of applications on Cloud Foundry and enabling the success of these applications without dedicated monitoring infrastructure.
