- The platform will have three offerings- log management, infrastructure monitoring and cloud security information and event management
- The Observability Platform is powered by Kibana and Grafana
According to a report by Globe Newswire, open source based log management and cloud security provider Logz.io has launched a Cloud Observability Platform which has been powered by the open source ELK and Grafana. As per the report, the platform will enable engineers to reduce time to resolution, increase their productivity and integrate security into DevOps workflows. The platform will be delivered as a fully managed, developer-centric cloud service with a single pane of glass for monitoring, troubleshooting and securing distributed cloud workloads and Kubernetes.
The platform will have three offerings which are log management, infrastructure monitoring and cloud security information and event management (SIEM). The log management will provide the ELK Stack as a fully managed service and enhance it with AI and advanced data analytics features claimed the company. The infrastructure monitoring which is available in beta will provide a Grafana-based monitoring solution that will correlate metrics and logs to speed investigative work and time to resolution. The cloud SIEM will provide DevOps-native threat detection and analytics built on the ELK Stack.

Tomer Levy, CEO of Logz.io, said, “We firmly believe developers are most productive when they are free to use community-driven, open-source tools, but we recognise the challenges that come along with scaling these solutions to fit businesses. We built the Logz.io Cloud Observability Platform because we want every software engineer in every company to have access to tools like ELK and Grafana without being bogged down by maintenance or scale.”
The company said that the Observability Platform is powered by Kibana and Grafana and will help engineers to correlate between metrics and logs by providing complete visibility into Kubernetes and distributed cloud workloads. The platform also features out-of-the-box proactive alerting and advanced machine learning capabilities for engineers to identify and resolve issues and threats faster claimed the company.
Engineers employ technologies like Kubernetes while building and shipping code. This leads to generation of application stacks that are distributed, abstracted and difficult to monitor. Achieving observability in modern IT environments has become difficult and time consuming.
In order to solve this problem, engineers prefer to use open source tools, like ELK and Grafana that are easy to set up, community-driven and built to solve developers’ problems. They are also cloud-native and can be integrated with modern infrastructure such as Kubernetes and other open source projects. But open source tools can be difficult to maintain and scale.
