New Relic (NYSE: NEWR), the observability company, today announced expanded support for Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), with an add-on for Amazon EKS Blueprints that automates and standardizes how engineers add observability instrumentation to software deployed on Kubernetes. The new add-on deploys New Relic’s Kubernetes observability components — including infrastructure agents, Kube events, logging, auto-telemetry with Pixie, and New Relic’s Prometheus OpenMetrics integration — using code directly within Amazon EKS, reducing the need for observability expertise or the need to manually instrument clusters. Once deployed, New Relic’s Kubernetes solution allows teams to analyze application and cluster performance in a single, curated user interface (UI), and auto-telemetry with Pixie gives teams continuous profiling to understand where code is running slow or consuming valuable cluster resources.
Kubernetes environments’ distributed and ephemeral nature make it very complex to troubleshoot. The complexity increases in pre-production environments, where engineers are less likely to add monitoring instrumentation. Without observability, engineers are blind to the performance of their clusters and the applications that run on them, resulting in degraded software performance and downtime. New Relic’s add-on for Amazon EKS Blueprints solves this challenge by automating Kubernetes observability to save developer time and standardizing observability best practices across all their deployments.
“Today’s news follows a long-standing strategic collaboration agreement with Amazon Web Services to bring New Relic’s data-driven observability to millions of engineers and developers globally,” said Alex Kroman, Senior Vice President and Product GM at New Relic. “New Relic continues to invest in supporting AWS technologies that our customers depend on to achieve faster, lower-risk migrations with more compelling business outcomes.”
Features and benefits of this announcement include:
- Automate adding observability components in Amazon EKS clusters
- Standardize on observability best practices in all Kubernetes deployments
- Optimize performance with cluster-wide observability, dashboarding, and alerting
New Relic’s add-on for Amazon EKS Blueprints is generally available today. All existing customers of New Relic—an all-in-one observability platform with a secure telemetry cloud, powerful full-stack analysis tools, and predictable consumption pricing — can access this new capability without any additional cost as part of their New Relic account. New customers can sign up and start using the experience for free, no credit card needed. To learn more, visit our blog.
