Observability: we are Grafana technology partners webp image

Following the announcement of the partnership with Snyk, we are happy to share that SoftwareMill has officially partnered with Grafana! As a leading open-source analytics and monitoring platform, Grafana equips businesses with the observability tools they need to understand their data.

In modern infrastructure management, analysis of output data effectively allows you to monitor the internal state of systems better and react on time. Observability has been an integral part of DevOps but recently gained even more attention. Introducing observability tools, you can:

  • detect problems at an earlier stage
  • improve overall system performance
  • optimize processes and make data-driven decisions
  • visualize, present, and share data in an accessible form

and get the most out of your data.

As interest in observability increases and businesses seek tools to implement it, we want to make it easier. At SoftwareMill we use Grafana and supporting tools such as Prometheus and Loki to build reliable monitoring systems (which you can see, for example, in this tutorial). We also used it in our Observability Starter Kit for JVM Applications, Meerkat.

Partnering with Grafana is, therefore, a natural step for us to offer the best practices and tools, and it aligns with our commitment to delivering cutting-edge technology solutions to our clients. Grafana provides businesses with the tools they need to understand their data, offering powerful and flexible features to create interactive and shareable dashboards. With Grafana, users can query, visualize, alert on, and explore their metrics no matter where they are stored.

Benefits of Grafana include:

  • Advanced Monitoring Features: Grafana supports various data sources, including Graphite, Prometheus, and Elasticsearch, allowing for a comprehensive preview of all your metrics in one place.
  • Customizable Dashboards: you can create and adjust dashboards according to your specific needs and observe exactly what you want.
  • Real-time Alerts: when certain conditions are met regarding your data, you can be notified via customized alerts in real-time.
  • Tracing with Grafana Tempo: use Tempo, Grafana's integrated tracking backend, to seamlessly and cost-efficiently track queries throughout their lifecycle and link them to the right logs and metrics.
  • Load Testing with Grafana k6: with the k6 tool, you can easily test the performance of your application and visualize load test results within Grafana dashboards.
  • Scalability: Grafana's robust architecture helps you grow and scale with your data, making it suitable for businesses of all sizes.
