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 Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) integration, Instana saves DevOps teams headaches and accelerates software development.

Who's already using GCP and Instana?

Hundreds of companies, large and small, are benefiting from Instana in their Google environments across every vertical, for example:

Why use both GCP and Instana?

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

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

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

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 Google Cloud 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.
  • The agent configures, loads and updates the sensors to collect configuration, changes, metrics and events - all without any manual instrumentation.
  • It’s 100% automatic - our sensors discover all 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.

Schedule a demo

A trace of every single request - not just samples

  • Perfect visibility into your application's execution path. Instana collects telemetry and metrics at 1 second resolution.
  • With comprehensive tracing, there are no more blindspots. Go deep for root cause analysis or broad to analyze execution streams.
  • Visual representations of all upstream and downstream service dependencies make it easy to find your way through a distributed application.

Schedule a demo

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

  • We create a real-time model of your application, called the Dynamic Graph, that understands all physical and logical dependencies of components.
  • Historical knowledge of the graph (entities, properties, metrics, changes and issues) enables Instana “TimeShift” to analyze 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, you'll always have the answer to the question “what just happened?”
