Microsoft Azure has signed a strategic partnership with Logz.io, a global open-source observability platform for modern DevOps teams. The partnership is intended to streamline monitoring and observability workflows for cloud developers.
With the click of a button, Microsoft Azure users can now install the Logz.io platform straight from the Azure Console. For corporate companies creating apps on Azure, the seamless interface between Azure and Logz.io would provide visibility and monitoring, as well as the particular information needed to simplify code development and achieve business agility.
Logz.io’s approach to monitoring and observability would be unique in that it integrates the finest open-source tools – ELK, Prometheus, and Jaeger – onto a scalable platform with “enterprise-grade” features like alerts, reports, better data segregation, and security. Engineers developing and managing applications on Azure can now leverage these popular open-source features with more simplicity and less friction thanks to the Azure framework and product integration with Logz.io.
“Today’s DevOps engineers need direct access to the specific performance data that enables them to build and troubleshoot applications with greater speed and agility,” said Tomer Levy, CEO and co-founder of Logz.io. “Through this strategic partnership, Microsoft Azure developers can now enjoy advanced observability with the click of a button, allowing them to work faster and with greater accuracy.
Logz.io would provide the critical visibility needed to reduce response time and optimize the use of engineering resources. The company would do so by enabling engineers and IT operations pros to quickly collect, analyze, and visualize their observability data in a centralized manner – processing massive volumes of data to extract meaningful performance insights. According to Microsoft and Logz.io, this allows businesses to respond quickly to technical and business questions, as well as better manage today’s dispersed, sophisticated, containerized cloud systems.
“Our partnership with Logz.io will accelerate innovation within the engineering community, enabling teams to seamlessly launch Logz.io observability tools and rapidly build and monitor their products,” said Julia Liuson, Corporate Vice President, Microsoft Developer Division. “At the same time, it will provide users with a centralized portal management for billing and support for their Azure Deployments.”
