New Relic Releases Docker Microservices Monitoring


New Relic has announced support for Docker containers and microservices monitoring to boost its enterprise presence. Docker monitoring means enterprises are able to better track containers and get better visibility on the performance of their full range of containers.

Patrick Lightbody, vice president of product management at New Relic said: “The proliferation of microservices and new technologies like Docker has transformed how modern software is built and managed today.

“We see these new features as another important step towards our goal for the New Relic Software Analytics Platform to help the world deliver great software and make it successful in terms of performance, customer experience, and business success.”

The feature is part of an overhaul of its monitoring suite that also includes Service Maps (a switch from the App Map) to monitor microservices within an architecture, and provide teams to better focus on the performance and support of the services they are responsible for rather than the full set of apps.

Streamlined alerts is another new addition. This is a redesigned incident dashboard that brings the full range of alerts into a single place, allowing organisations to detect and react to outages quickly. The alerts are available across the entire New Relic Software Analytics Platform and works with Relic’s iOS and Android apps. It can also be integrated with third party platforms such as Slack, HipChat, OpsGenie, PagerDuty, VictorOps, and Campfire.

New Relic also announced it would be joining the CloudFoundry Foundation, sharing its service broker and build pack technologies with the open source initiative. John Gray, New Relic SVP of business development said: “New Relic is proud to join the Cloud Foundry Foundation and continue our longstanding effort to bring software analytics to this community of innovators. “We believe the future of software development is service-oriented, where IT orchestrates services like Cloud Foundry to enable elastic, flexible architectures to meet business demands.”
