Instana Announces AI Powered Health Management Of Kubernetes Orchestrated Applications

Solution Adds Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform Support

Company to Exhibit Extended Capabilities for Containers at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 Demonstrating Intelligent Analysis of Highly Orchestrated Environments

San Francisco, December 5, 2017 – Ahead of their participation at KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2017 this week, Instana today announced full-stack monitoring support for Kubernetes-orchestrated applications, including those managed by Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. By leveraging its AI capability, Instana has delivered a powerful solution for managing today’s dynamic applications running in containerized environments through its unique ability to analyze and report performance in real-time.

Instana now provides full stack monitoring of Kubernetes-powered applications through extended capabilities into the Kubernetes platform. Instana’s AI-powered APM solution now monitors the most complex components of an application stack, adding the ability to discover, analyze and monitor between the different tech stacks. These added capabilities will work in-between Kubernetes orchestration layers to provide operators with an inclusive image and complete observability of their applications. Applying intelligent analysis, Instana provides Kubernetes administrators with comprehensive visibility and performance management of their orchestrator and the impact actions have on applications. Instana’s support augments Kubernetes capabilities to provide enhanced service quality management and increase the understanding of an application’s running condition.

“Kubernetes is seeing continued adoption, from customers who are digitally transforming and building high speed application development organizations and the industry. We viewed this as an opportunity to create capabilities that could work complementary to, and in unison with such a successful and useful platform,” said Mirko Novakovic, Instana founder and CEO. “We are thrilled to leverage Instana’s solution to augment the Kubernetes platform and provide our customers with full stack monitoring and understanding of dynamic orchestration environments.”

“We think Instana’s innovations in real-time analysis and the application of AI are a powerful addition to the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform ecosystem,” said Julio Tapia, director, OpenShift ecosystem, Red Hat. “As customers choose OpenShift as their enterprise Kubernetes platform of choice, we are committed to delivering broad choice for supported containers through our work with ecosystem partners like Instana.”

“We use Instana’s real-time visibility to manage our Red Hat OpenShift orchestrated applications,” said David Deuchert, Principal Architect/Director of Software Development at Follett School Solutions. “Our team appreciates Instana’s unique ability to automatically and intelligently analyze real-time application performance in our orchestrated environments which has allowed us to monitor a growing number of applications at a fixed cost. OpenShift’s flexibility to update deployments combined with Instana’s ability to provide instant feedback has allowed us to make performance adjustments quickly and seamlessly.”
