Kubernetes is a fast growing open-source container-orchestration system that can automatically deploy, scale and operate application containers across clusters of hosts. Today, we are excited to announce that StackState extends its next-gen monitoring and AIOps platform to Kubernetes. We tell you what this integration could mean to you in in this blogpost!
What is Kubernetes?Kubernetes (a.k.a. k8s) was originally designed by Google and can best be described as an open-source container-orchestration system. Kubernetes’ goal is to provide a platform for automating deployment, scaling and operations of application containers across clusters of hosts.
Companies are adopting Kubernetes’ technology at a rapid pace. And rightly so -- this technology has become the defacto standard for running containers in production. But running containers is only half the battle, how are you going to ensure your services do what they need to do and when it is time to scale up or out? That’s where StackState comes in…
StackState integration with Kubernetes
StackState's Next-Gen Monitoring and AIOps platform integrates seamlessly with your current IT investments (like Kubernetes), by combining and analyzing metrics, logs and events. In addition, StackState adds data beyond typical monitoring information, like Google Analytics, CMDBs, CI/CD tools, service registries, automation and incident management tools. StackState uses the variety of data it collects to learn about dependencies, allowing it to build a topology of dynamic IT landscapes in real-time.
With its new Kubernetes integration, StackState just became a great choice for Kubernetes monitoring. StackState will help you to:
- Get a real-time and always up-to-date picture of your Kubernetes environment, including all pods and services
- Automatically detect and visualize connections between containers so you can see all dependencies
- Track all Kubernetes metrics, giving you unprecedented insight into your application health and performance
Play around with the integration
StackState Kubernetes support is a fully integrated addition to the StackState AIOps platform. This means that you can also see how any of your on-prem or cloud-hosted servers interacts with your Kubernetes containers.
