What’s Instana?

Instana is a fully automated APM solution for cloud-native applications

With a single agent, we auto-discover application building blocks, trace every request, and create a dynamic graph of all dependencies. With a tight integration with EKS, Fargate and Lambda, Instana saves DevOps teams headaches and accelerates software development.

Now you probably want to know who’s already using AWS and Instana…

We have hundreds of joint customers, small and large, in every vertical - a few examples.

Why use both AWS and Instana?

Kubernetes, serverless, microservices - all powerful concepts for faster application development. But new architectures also mean a new world that DevOps and SRE teams have to deal with.

Constant Change

Constant change

Dynamic scaling or code changes pushed by CI/CD pipelines means that there are a lot of moving bits and pieces that you may not be aware of but need to stay on top of. Visibility into every component and event matters.

Distributed execution

Distributed execution

When functions call each other, latencies on each workflow can slow down your app. Execution paths change. Locating the source of an error or bottleneck requires knowledge of every trace for every request.

Dynamic lifespan

Dynamic lifespan

The entire lifecycle of a service, from initiation, to use and tear down can complete in just a few seconds. One minute averages just aren’t good enough when you have ephemeral workloads. High resolution with second-level granularity is where it’s at.

Joint benefits of AWS and Instana

It’s the ultimate win-win: Faster software development and release cycles while you stay on top of the dynamic changes in your infrastructure and applications.

Automatic discovery - our single agent does all the heavy lifting for you.

  • Instana uses a single agent that manages sensors, small programs crafted to monitor each technology in your application architecture.
  • Without manual instrumentation, the agent configures, loads and updates the sensors to collect configuration, configuration, changes, metrics, and events.
  • It’s 100% automatic - our sensors discover all of your application building blocks:
    - Physical components: data centers, hosts, containers, processes, clusters, etc.
    - Logical components: services, endpoints, applications, traces, and calls.
    - Business components: business services and business processes.

A trace for every single request - not just samples

  • Perfect visibility into your app’s execution path. Instana collects telemetry and metrics at 1 second resolution.
  • With comprehensive tracing, you have no more blindspots. Go deep for root cause analysis, or broad for analysis of execution streams.
  • Visual representations of all up- and downstream service dependencies makes it easy to find your way through a distributed application.

A “time-shift” view with a history of the state and dependencies of all components

  • We create a “dynamic graph”, a model of your app that understands all physical and logical dependencies of components.
  • We keep a history of the graph, its properties, metrics, changes and issues and provide a “timeshift” feature to analyse any given problem with a clear view on the state and dependencies of all components.
  • With 1-second granularity and a history of your graph, there’s no more wondering “what just happened?”

Case Study
We sat down with David Merryweather, VP of Infrastructure and Site Reliability at Macmillan Learning to learn how Instana helps their engineers solve problems every day, and build a next-generation containerized microservice platform.
Case Study
Emerging FinTech company ClearScore was so successful out of the gate, they needed a new Application after only two years; and they changed EVERYTHING: hosting strategy, architecture, language and management.
Case Study
Tipico had been using AppDynamics as their Application Performance Monitoring (APM) tool but with their shift to microservices and cloud, the determination was made that AppDynamics was not the right tool anymore.
