Build 189



Google Cloud Run Support

With this release we officially launch Instana’s support for Google Cloud Run in Technical Preview.

Google Cloud Run is a serverless compute engine for containers that removes the need to provision and manage servers.

You can now seamlessly trace all calls in your applications running on Cloud Run and collect metrics for Google Cloud Run service revisions with Instana, without any code change. This gives you full visibility into your Cloud Run resources and their performance. Tracing is currently supported for the Node.js and Go runtime, more runtimes will follow very soon.

Check out our Google Cloud Run documentation to get started.

New Helm Repository

Following the deprecation of Helm Hub, we launched a new, shiny, Instana-specific Helm repository at We will make the sources available soon, so that you can open PRs again. (And you do open cool PRs!) Documentation and in-product guidance is also going to be updated soon.

By the way, if you snoop into that repository, you might find something else very interesting to play with ;-)

Pipeline Feedback resource for Concourse

We launched the first version of the Instana Pipeline Feedback resource for Concourse CI. Get it while it's hot!
