You asked and we delivered! As we gathered more and more feedback from our prospective customers about our platform, one thing became obvious: we needed to increase our data source offering to be able to integrate with existing monitoring stacks. During this past quarter, we increased our data source offering with the introduction of three new popular integrations.
The first integration we worked on was New Relic. If you’re part of the IT Operations world, you’ve surely heard about this very popular monitoring tool. Our users can now use the monitoring data they are collecting through New Relic to set up SLOs inside Rely.io and start generating actionable and customer-focused insights from them.
The next integration we worked on was the GCP integration. As per Google’s own statement, GCP’s Cloud Monitoring offers automatic out-of-the-box metric collection for Google Cloud services while also supporting monitoring of hybrid and multi-cloud environments. This made this integration to be next in-line for development as it’s a product widely used by organizations of all sizes
Finally, by the end of the quarter we began working on allowing integrations with one of the most widely used and far reaching monitoring solutions: Prometheus. More specifically, the Prometheus Remote Write integration. This integration was heavily requested by our customers since many already use Prometheus to instrument and collect monitoring data from their applications but didn’t want to use our already supported Prometheus HTTP API integration, since it poses a security concern for many. By allowing remote write integrations, our users can selectively export the data most relevant to their SLO use cases without the need to deploy any public-facing endpoints that could compromise their application’s security and risk exposing sensitive information.
