Workloads are shifting to the cloud and auto-scaling is enabled, which makes infrastructure monitoring a crucial task for engineering teams in digital businesses. Crucial, but challenging due to increasing costs and surprise bills.

Cloud-based infrastructure monitoring requires defining relevant metrics, using scalable monitoring solutions, optimizing costs and implementing automation and alerts. Teams need a solution that prioritizes monitoring and addresses these challenges to ensure optimal system performance while managing costs effectively.

Enter New Relic.

New Relic, the all-in-one observability platform, unveiled an integrated and comprehensive solution for infrastructure monitoring and application performance management. This new offering allows engineers, DevOps and ITOps to seamlessly diagnose and address performance issues in real-time, without the need for multiple disjointed monitoring tools.

One of the standout features of New Relic's solution is its ability to correlate the health and performance of applications and hosts, providing a holistic view of the entire stack.

Other key features of New Relic's solution include integrated infrastructure experiences within APM (News - Alert), providing visibility into CPU and memory usage across hosts, containers and virtual machines. This allows users to pinpoint under-provisioned resources that may be impacting application performance.

The platform also enables organizations to analyze all their telemetry data without sampling, ensuring they have access to crucial information for quick issue identification and resolution. By moving away from siloed monitoring tools, users gain a connected and comprehensive observability platform that allows them to understand the interplay between different layers of their stack.

One company that is keen on the solution is Digicert. By utilizing New Relic's comprehensive infrastructure monitoring solution, Digicert identifies performance problems caused by hosts by analyzing the health of both our applications and hosts simultaneously, in real-time. This enables Digicert to swiftly detect any abnormal behavior and implement necessary remedies, all while minimizing operational costs.

“This release adds best-in-class infrastructure monitoring to easily monitor and debug infrastructure issues, with a unique pricing model that saves customers money compared to other tools on the market,” said New Relic Chief Product Officer Manav Khurana.

As Khurana mentioned, the pricing model is another advantage of New Relic's solution. The platform charges based on exact usage and does not impose additional fees for custom metrics or third-party data. This results in up to three times the value compared to other vendors, offering cost savings and flexibility for organizations.

With its integrated and cost-effective infrastructure monitoring and APM capabilities, New Relic aims to empower teams to identify and address performance issues swiftly, enhancing the overall customer experience.
