Splunk unlocks real-time observability for cloud infrastructure and microservices

Tech Intelligence Bulletin (HG Insights) – Splunk Inc. has announced the next release of SignalFx Microservices APM, the only application performance monitoring (APM) solution that provides customers complete observability into modern, cloud-native environments to produce meaningful business outcomes regardless of scale.

The new release of SignalFx Microservices APM combines the NoSample full-fidelity tracing, open standards based instrumentation, and artificial intelligence (AI)-driven directed troubleshooting from SignalFx and Omnition into a single best-in-class solution.

Embracing the cloud and microservices

Customer expectations for seamless digital experiences are at an all-time high, and as more applications move to the cloud, software development and operations (SDO) performance become increasingly important to keep pace with these requirements. SignalFx Microservices APM helps organizations as they embrace the cloud and microservices, and enable their DevOps teams to innovate faster, elevate customer experience, and future-proof their applications.

Meaningful business outcomes

“As organizations make the shift from on-premises to hybrid and cloud-native environments, Splunk is the only company that can support any organization’s observability needs across all stages of their digital transformation,” said Rick Fitz, senior vice president and general manager, IT Markets, Splunk Inc. “In less than one year since acquiring SignalFx and Omnition, Splunk is already delivering an integrated solution that empowers organizations to leverage all their data to better manage complexity and create meaningful business outcomes in these cloud-native environments.”

Flexibility in capturing data

Development teams adopt microservices in order to innovate quickly, and many rely on open standards to build, connect and observe their infrastructure. Proprietary data collection is not built for modern cloud environments or how developers want to work today. SignalFx Microservices APM supports lightweight, open source and open standards-based instrumentation that allows the most flexibility in capturing any organization’s data.
