Scout APM Makes Open Source TelemetryHub Public


The Early Access Program for TelemetryHub, an open source project created by Scout APM with the goal of giving developers a standardised method for gathering and analysing application performance data, has just been made available. Scout APM is pleased to announce this.

Application Performance Monitoring (APM) service provider Scout APM today announced the launch of TelemetryHub via Scout APM’s Early Access Program (EAP). By utilising the open source initiative OpenTelemetry, TelemetryHub offers observability solutions for small to medium-sized engineering teams. Early adopters can immediately sign up and take advantage of the potential of telemetry data.

Scout, which was first developed as a server monitoring tool in 2009, has since expanded to offer insight into the performance of applications for a growing number of supported languages. Scout is currently developing into an observability platform that will allow teams to diagnose problems and shorten the Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR) by providing a straightforward, reasonably priced, and practical single pane of glass view across distributed systems.

Users can ingest telemetry data from platforms instrumented with the OpenTelemetry CNCF initiative using TelemetryHub. As an early adopter of OpenTelemetry, TelemetryHub has the support of a project that has amassed over 100,000 contributors from the community. TelemetryHub is dedicated to evangelising and supporting the project through contribution and education. This gives our clients the chance to employ an ever-evolving, vendor-neutral solution that gives them complete control and freedom with their observability data, enabling the TelemetryHub team to remain dedicated to offering the best solution for users.

Organizations interested in attaining observability in their complex systems without the burden of high complexity or an expensive solution can take advantage of the Early Access Program. TelemetryHub will enable all users with a stake in the stability and health of their systems to take advantage of the comprehensive diagnostic tools offered by the new platform to increase understanding and decrease MTTR thanks to usage-based pricing and no-seat licences.

While Scout will continue to provide customer support through our APM solution, OpenTelemetry data can now be uploaded to TelemetryHub as of right now. There is always a risk involved in creating a brand-new platform, but we’re eager to take it.

Sarah Morgan, TelemetryHub’s senior product manager states, “TelemetryHub is fully-invested in the OpenTelemetry project as the future of observability. Standardizing how applications process and send data will ensure organizations an ever-evolving, vendor-agnostic, flexible solution for achieving observability within their organizations and maintaining a high level of understanding of their applications and user pain points. TelemetryHub is committed to supporting customers on their observability journey to achieve deep but widely shared insights that evolve as their systems mature and expand.”
