Automate Troubleshooting of Kubernetes Applications
StackState is an out-of-the-box platform to observe your entire Kubernetes stack, identify problems, automatically highlight the changes that cause them and provide the full context you need for efficient and effective troubleshooting.
The StackState Difference for Kubernetes
Most of today’s container observability solutions focus on the state of independent services without correlating them and without tracking cause and effect. StackState is different in many ways:
Get Kubernetes best practices out-of-the-box
Track all changes in your cluster over time
Detect issues before they cause a service disruption and prevent issues altogether with automated AIOps anomaly detection
Get 360 degrees of context across your stack
Featured Customer: FieldPulse
See how FieldPulse got all the observability data they need plus more comprehensive insights from Kubernetes and AWS in just three hours. The team found unknown bottlenecks, cut transaction response time in half, reduced Amazon RDS utilization by 75% and significantly lowered overall AWS costs.
Deeper visibility into infrastructure and issues
Natively observability for AWS/EKS cloud native environments
Deeper insights than they were getting with CloudWatch and Dynatrace
Helps their team understand impact of change and component dependencies across multiple silos in their IT environment
Why Observing Kubernetes Is Hard
Container resources are dynamic and ever-changing. The old ways of monitoring don’t apply anymore – but the need to ensure the reliability and performance of your business-critical applications is more important than ever.
Containers are ephemeral: they have fast-moving parts and short life spans, so they are hard to keep track of.
Large applications typically have many container instances, often managed by multiple teams who are often separated by silos.
Containers are affected by many other activities in your environment, but visibility is often obstructed by layers of abstraction.
Teams lack a unified, correlated view that shows cause and effect of changes across their stacks over time.
Meet your service level objectives
Troubleshoot more quickly and reduce MTTR by 80% or more
Lower the cost of observability
Reduce instrumentation and troubleshooting toil
