In today’s business, organizations that move faster have an advantage over slower moving teams. To meet the need for speed, applications evolved to use microservices, containers and orchestration, most notably Kubernetes. Applications became so dynamic (constantly changing). Legacy tools struggled to keep up with the rate of change.
Instana was built from the ground up to handle these modern applications. The founders had a simple goal in mind – make life easier for DevOps. That meant being able to provide the levels of visibility they were used to from their traditional APM tools, but also deliver actionable information for all stakeholders from Ops to Dev to business executives.
The product vision was straightforward:
– Automate everything – from discovery to troubleshooting!
– Model the full stack environment and detect changes in real time.
– Provide Immediate Feedback and deliver the data needed to take intelligent actions quickly.
The resulting Instana Enterprise Observability Platform gathers every metric, traces every request and profiles every process to deliver the understanding every stakeholder in Dev+Ops needs to operate the application and update it regularly.
