Instana’s Enterprise Observability platform handles the unique needs of Cloud-Native Applications. Even before Instana became an IBM company, Instana was optimized to work with Red Hat’s OpenShift Container Platform. Instana is available on OperatorHub and Red Hat Marketplace, packaged as an Operator for OpenShift that we whimsically call the Instana OpenShift Kubernetes Operator.

At Instana, we believe that Observability should be as automated as possible. We often joke with each other about automagic. From the birth of Instana, we relentlessly invested in the creation of distributed tracing technology that you can deploy once and do not have to manually update, customize, redeploy, restart, or any of those other little “joys” of operating software.

According to our website, Unbounded Analytics “provides infinite flexibility to generate new insights from all unsampled, high-cardinality data.” Great! But wait… what does high cardinality data even mean?

AARCH64, sometimes also referred to as ARM64, is a CPU architecture developed by ARM Ltd., and a 64-bit extension of the pre-existing ARM architecture, starting from ARMv8-A. ARM architectures are primarily known for their energy efficiency and low power consumption. For that reason, virtually all mobile phones and tablets today use ARM architecture-based CPUs.

Sometimes I feel like I’m in my first Open Source Anonymous meeting. Hi, my name is Chris Lentricchia, and I haven’t used open source software for six months. I’m 27, and Instana is my first proprietary software company. After working my entire career in open source, it’s pretty surreal. I started at Red Hat, which was also “born” in 1993, where I oversaw an array of technologies, from Linux to management software and middleware.

A few short years ago, contactless car rentals were the realm of science fiction. If you wanted a car, you had to fill out and sign half a dozen forms and wait while an agent approved your credit card before you were handed the keys. Even if you booked a car online, you still needed to talk to a person and verify your personal information before you could get behind the wheel.

Understanding the health status of your systems is important, and Observability tools, such as Instana, help you to achieve deep insights into every element of the overall architecture. As long as everything is fine, that is enough. When things get out of hand though, then what? With your DevOps teams on call, there are people around to immediately react to any alert.

Kubernetes (also known as k8s) is an orchestration platform and abstract layer for containerized applications and services. As such, k8s manages and limits container available resources on the physical machine, as well as takes care of deployment, (re)start, stop, and scaling of service instances.

Your Application Monitoring strategy is a critical factor that makes or breaks your ability to keep software delivery up to pace with user expectations. Manual monitoring puts all that at risk. In fact, the more your applications change, the more you must automate your monitoring processes.

This Application Performance Management eBook explores the world of containers, and how they impact application performance and monitoring. The analysis includes a breakdown of container visibility challenges, the kinds of tools available for container monitoring and functional recommendations for an effective Application Monitoring strategy.

Instana is Dynamic APM for Microservice Management. Specifically built for agile devops teams, we monitor and correlate every aspect of your application tech-stack. As your teams integrate and deploy new code Instana continuously discovers, and continuously aligns with the changes. Customers using Instana benefit from real-time impact analysis, improved quality of service, and optimized workflows that keep their applications healthy.

Automatic Visualization and Performance Analysis of Your Full Application Stack:

  • Application Performance Monitoring: Instana has re-imagined what APM means for Cloud-Native Applications, delivering the first Application Performance Management solution specifically built to monitor cloud-native, microservice, containerized, and orchestrated applications. Don’t worry, Instana can also manage classic applications (SOA, Hybrid Cloud, On-prem, etc.) too – that’s the easy stuff.
  • End User Monitoring: Understand the performance of EVERY request, from front end to backend so you can quickly detect problems and optimize performance. Instana enables users to confidently increase velocity and deliver more services without needing to worry about negatively impacting customer experiences. Instana allows you to quickly drill into every path and every browser request in chronological order for any user.
  • Application & Microservice Infrastructure Monitoring: Instana automates continuous discovery and monitoring of all application infrastructure components (with zero human configuration). Instana automatically correlates the application infrastructure performance data with top-line application performance, making it easy to see if the application infrastructure is contributing to the latency of application services.

Simply the Best APM Solution for Microservice Applications.
