Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus is a new monitoring product that lets developers monitor and alert on their Kubernetes deployments, using Prometheus, without the burden of managing and operationalizing Prometheus at scale. It is intended to be a drop-in replacement for Prometheus which replaces the need for Thanos, allowing users to keep their existing Grafana dashboards, PromQL-based alerts, and workflows.
This service provides fully managed, scalable metrics storage and retrieval using the same open source interfaces as Prometheus. Because the service itself uses Prometheus, it is compatible with Prometheus-based collection and PromQL queries. Additionally, it is built on top of the same globally scalable data store as Cloud Monitoring.
Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus is currently in Preview and is accepting new users. To join the Preview, submit the sign-up form.
