As organizations adopt cloud-native solutions, lack of visibility and security are the biggest barriers for adoption. The ultimate goal of moving to the cloud is being able to maximize availability and innovate faster. Popular among AWS users, Amazon CloudWatch is a monitoring and observability service that provides data and actionable insights when monitoring applications, allowing Ops engineers, developers, site reliability engineers (SREs), and IT managers to respond to system-wide performance changes, optimize resource utilization, and get a unified view of operational health. In addition, many developers standardize on open source Prometheus monitoring to gain insight. Prometheus is a powerful tool, but it comes with scaling and integration challenges. Sysdig continues to work in step with AWS and the cloud-native market to make the process of instrumenting containers and Kubernetes more accessible with support for Prometheus monitoring. "Our business relies on Kubernetes and container services being up, running, and performing well. Sysdig helps us monitor the health and performance of our deployments at scale, and gives us rich data, including Prometheus metrics, that helps us understand and resolve issues quickly," said Ryan Staatz, site reliability engineer, LogDNA. "The new Prometheus integrations will make it easier to monitor our solution running on AWS."
