Instana Adds Rancher-Managed Kubernetes Clusters Support

By on

According to a recent press release, “Instana, the leading provider of real-time Application Performance Management solutions for Kubernetes based applications, today announced support for the Rancher Kubernetes management platform. Instana will now detect, identify and indicate Kubernetes clusters being managed by Rancher. ‘The deployment and management of applications continue to become more complex, especially when microservices apps are orchestrated via Kubernetes,’ said Peter Abrams, COO and co-founder at Instana. ‘It’s critical for Application Management solutions like Instana to provide the most complete visibility into the structure of application infrastructure, while leveraging the observability built into those systems’.”

The release goes on, “Two years ago, Instana became the first APM solution to provide monitoring and insights into Kubernetes-based applications. Last year, the automatic APM solution added support for monitoring Kubernetes pods and clusters in addition to the applications running on top of the orchestration infrastructure. The latest release adds visibility into the orchestration management layer developed and deployed by Rancher. DevOps teams using Instana alongside Rancher gain access to best-in-class application performance management and orchestration management to operate mission-critical applications. Instana allows all application stakeholders, from IT Operations to development, to get the information they need to identify and fix any problems that may occur.”
