Instana Adds Support for CRI-O Infrastructure and Application Monitoring

By on

According to a new press release, “Building on its leadership position in the Kubernetes application management solution industry, Instana today announced support for managing CRI-O Kubernetes run-time containers and the applications that run on that infrastructure. ‘Instana is committed to providing the broadest and deepest application performance management solution for Kubernetes-orchestrated applications.,’ said Chris Farrell, Instana Director of Technical Marketing. ‘The addition of support for CRI-O as a Kubernetes run-time gives our customers maximum flexibility to select their favorite orchestration engine and run-time containers.’ The first application performance management solution to natively monitor container infrastructure and containerized applications, Instana expands its technical leadership in the containerized application management industry with today’s announcement. Similarly to what it does with other technology monitoring, Instana automatically discovers, deploys, monitoring and analyzes data from CRI-O, correlating infrastructure and application information with other monitoring information.”

The release goes on, “Instana was the first APM solution to monitor applications that ran in containerized environments orchestrated with any Kubernetes distribution including opensource K8s, Red Hat OpenShift, Tectonic, IBM Cloud Kubernetes Service, Microsoft Azure Kubernetes Service, Amazon Kubernetes Service, Google Kubernetes Engine, Pivotal Kubernetes Service and Rancher Kubernetes. Over the last two years, Instana has built on that technology, starting with the unique ability to monitor the Kubernetes infrastructure, correlated with the applications running in the environment. Last year, Instana further expanded its Kubernetes monitoring footprint with instant access to Kubernetes performance information and applications running in a K8S environment.”
