Blue Medora announced BindPlane for Microsoft’s Azure Log Analytics, allowing unified monitoring across the growing number of multi-cloud environments.

Blue Medora’s BindPlane for Azure Log Analytics, now in early access preview through the Azure Marketplace, streams health and performance data from the top 10 AWS services and delivers them in dashboards to the Azure Log Analytics service. It provides a single, self-maintaining connection for 100+ enterprise technologies. BindPlane collects more granular metrics than traditional integrations and enhances them with rich-relational context about the entire IT stack – part of a proprietary innovation referred to as dimensional data.

BindPlane gives Microsoft customers another option to manage their IT apps as efficiently and easily as possible, including those apps running outside Azure on AWS.

“Achieving visibility across cloud platforms and applications has traditionally led to cloud tool sprawl and high management overhead, plus the fractured visibility leads to poor end user experience as issues can’t be quickly identified and understood,” explains Nathan Owen, CEO and founder of Blue Medora. “Blue Medora BindPlane helps extend visibility of Microsoft Azure Log Analytics beyond Azure to other leading public cloud providers, enabling a unified, in-context view of cloud behavior and performance for the rapidly increasing cross section of Microsoft customers running multi-cloud workloads.”

“We’ve seen through our recent multi-cloud report that customers are choosing a cloud platform best suited to a particular application, but it can be hard to make an informed decision without a single view to effectively measure and monitor performance,” comments Edwin Yuen, senior analyst at research firm ESG. “BindPlane for Microsoft Azure Log Analytics offers an important way to see across all cloud apps, and in turn help guide decisions around the ideal cloud platform for a given application.”

BindPlane provides seamless monitoring integration between Azure Log Analytics and public cloud resource endpoints. The offering currently includes 10 AWS services, but will soon also include Google Cloud Platform and IBM Softlayer.

Key benefits include:

- Lower cloud costs: Customers can use their existing Azure Log Analytics solution to match cloud performance and price needs for individual applications.

- Saved time: Improves productivity of IT operations and DevOps teams by offloading expensive and non-core monitoring integration investments. Log Analytics users don’t need to invest time configuring, deploying and maintaining new AWS integrations.

- Reduced risk: Unified monitoring enables faster troubleshooting and eliminates management risks introduced by cloud sprawl.

- Seamless integration: Monitor AWS resources with Azure Log Analytics in a single pane of glass

- Services currently included: EC2, Elastic Container Service (ECS), RDS, S3, Redshift, DynamoDB, Lambda, Elastic Beanstalk, Elasticsearch, and Kinesis

- Dimensional data: Deep monitoring data based on expertise and enterprise knowledge base, imbued with relational visibility across the full IT stack. Extensive metrics, more than what’s available in Amazon CloudWatch.

- Operational dashboards: 10 pre-built custom dashboard templates deliver dimensional data in operational context for relational visibility.
