Google Stackdriver is now generally available for hybrid cloud monitoring, logging and diagnostics

Google Stackdriver is now generally available.

Since its inception, Stackdriver was designed to make ops easier by reducing the burden associated with keeping applications fast, error-free and available in the cloud.

We started with a single pane of glass to monitor and alert on metrics from Google Cloud Platform (GCP), Amazon Web Services1 and common application components such as Tomcat, Nginx, Cassandra and MySQL. We added Stackdriver Logging, Error Reporting, Trace and Debugger to help you get to the root cause of issues quickly. And we introduced a simple pricing model that bundles advanced monitoring and logging into a single low-cost package in Stackdriver Premium. Finally, we migrated the service to the same infrastructure that powers the rest of Google so that you can expect world-class reliability and scalability.

Companies of all sizes are already using Stackdriver to simplify ops. For example:

  • Uber uses Stackdriver Monitoring to monitor Google Compute Engine, Cloud VPN and other aspects of GCP. It uses Stackdriver alerts to notify on-call engineers when issues occur.
  • Khan Academy uses Stackdriver Monitoring dashboards to quickly identify issues within its online learning platform. It troubleshoots issues with our integrated Logging, Error Reporting and Tracing tools.
  • Wix uses Stackdriver Logging and Google BigQuery to analyze large volumes of logs from Compute Engine auto-scaled deployments. They get intelligence on system health state and error rates that provides essential insight for them to run their operations.

If you’d like to learn more about Google Stackdriver, please check out our website or documentation. If you’re running on GCP or Amazon Web Services and want to join us on the journey to easier ops, sign up for a 30-day free trial of Stackdriver Premium today.

Happy Monitoring!
