Blue Medora announced 24 new endpoint integrations for BindPlane.

BindPlane addresses the common challenge most data center operations teams experience – gaining a comprehensive view of what’s going on across their IT ecosystem. BindPlane dramatically expands observability for large enterprises monitoring microservices, Microsoft Azure cloud environments and next-generation infrastructures. Since its introduction in February, the catalog of BindPlane endpoint integrations has grown more than 25%.

BindPlane automatically discovers external relationship metadata, seeing any new relationship information instantaneously and creating a full-stack relationship map. When shared with the analytics platform through the Dimensional Data stream, this map helps the platform and its users sound the alarm more accurately.

BindPlane creates new or additional relationships and discovers dependencies as more endpoints are added to the full IT stack across heterogeneous enterprise data centers and cloud stacks on demand.

Specific integrations used for distributed containerized environments released during this period include: Kubernetes, Docker Swarm, Kafka, Mesos, Pure Storage, Isilon, NetApp Solidfire, NetApp Hyper-Converged Infrastructure, and Palo Alto Networks.

“We believe a strategy of high-velocity innovation is required to solve the challenges of managing hybrid cloud environments,” explains Christian Fernando, vice president of product, Blue Medora. “A critical element is decoupling data collection from specific analytics platforms. This unlocks new levels of visibility into better metrics, which in turn frees platform providers to build a better platform. Performance metrics must include their relationship to other components in the IT stack to truly provide insights, so completing these multiple endpoint integrations is key.”

BindPlane eliminates silos for customers adopting Azure and AWS infrastructure services. It standardizes metrics between clouds and allows organizations to analyze them using third-party performance monitoring or analytics software to better understand the true cost of cloud services and to identify the best cloud for specific applications.

BindPlane translates all metrics from a given endpoint into Blue Medora’s proprietary ExUno universal data language, making it compatible with any monitoring platform and every use case (alerts, dashboards, reports, etc.). The result is a standard integration layer that delivers universally accessible insights from any cloud to every analytics platform within the organization.

Specific integrations used for Azure cloud monitoring released during this period include: Azure Storage, Azure Table Storage, Azure Blob Storage, Azure File Storage, Azure Queue Services, Azure Search, Azure Batch, Azure Load Balancer, Azure Functions, Azure Web Apps, Azure Resource Groups, Azure Database for MySQL, Azure Database for PostgreSQL, Azure Cost Management, Azure Redis Cache and Azure Event Hub.
