Epsagon announced Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) support, as well as a Microsoft Azure Partnership and solution availability in the Azure Marketplace to serve the fast-growing number of enterprises using Azure Cloud and multi-cloud architectures.
In addition, Epsagon is expanding its core platform with enhanced automation and correlation capabilities as well as deep container and Kubernetes monitoring, alerting and troubleshooting for both Azure and AWS public clouds. This update is part of an overall strategy for the company to extend and apply Epsagon’s observability advantages—including automation of manual tasks, rapid and easy troubleshooting and issue resolution, greater developer velocity and faster time to business value—equally across serverless, container and Kubernetes environments and to Azure as well as AWS cloud infrastructures.
Now, Epsagon is extending the same level of seamless, automated observability and rich context that it pioneered for serverless environments to enterprises leveraging Azure as part or all of their cloud infrastructure, and the growing number of companies using container and Kubernetes technologies.
“Businesses are entering a Cloud 2.0 era where hyper-growth in data volume, more widespread adoption of hybrid container and serverless environments, and multi-cloud microservice architectures are driving complexity that makes application management ever more difficult,” said Nitzan Shapira, CEO at Epsagon. “Organizations need to be able to make sense of the terabytes of valuable data collected and understand, immediately, how to use this data to make wise operational and business-level decisions. Epsagon’s advances in observability, monitoring and troubleshooting get to the heart of this challenge.”
In addition to support for AWS Cloud and multiple AWS services, companies leveraging Azure for either part or all of their infrastructure can immediately and fully utilize Epsagon's observability platform for automated monitoring and troubleshooting of Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS) environments. With the new AKS cluster monitoring view, users and teams can understand:
- Cluster-level metrics over time for a specific cluster
- Nodes, pods, containers and deployments associated with the specific cluster
Already an AWS Advanced Technology Partner, Epsagon has made the same improvements as for Azure to its dashboard for AWS ECS, Amazon’s containerized orchestration tool, and for AWS EKS, Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service.
Epsagon has also added to its platform:
- High-level infrastructure monitoring dashboards with compute service metrics
- Custom monitoring dashboards to understand the overall health of an application
- Expanded monitoring with auto alerting and alerting on more metrics (including trace, user-defined and AWS resource metrics)
Through its improved observability offering, Epsagon allows users to analyze trends or spikes for more accurate troubleshooting across both serverless and container environments. Users can see three sources of data: service performance metrics, service metrics from the cloud infrastructure provider and custom business metrics. With metrics from the cloud provider, in particular, users can feel comfortable using Epsagon as their single platform for monitoring and troubleshooting microservices.
With Epsagon’s automated correlation of metrics, logs, traces and payloads in a single pane of glass, users not only see immediately when something goes wrong in their environment, they also gain a full and instant understanding of the root cause of the problem. Users can see high-level metrics, drill down to specific traces and analyze correlated metrics, logs and payloads for containers as well as serverless. They can correlate a trace to relevant logs, to compute metrics and to resource metrics, and they can jump seamlessly from a node to highly visual dashboards.
“Because Epsagon’s end-to-end observability platform provides a complete picture of their environment at full depth in an elegant, simple-to-use platform, teams now can confidently use this single platform instead of relying on their existing, loosely integrated mixture of APM, logging, monitoring and troubleshooting tools,” Shapira said.
Epsagon’s newest capabilities are available today.
Michael Olson on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I really see AIOps as being a core requirement for observability because it ... applies intelligence to your telemetry data and your incident data ... to potentially predict problems before they happen."
Enterprise ITOM and ITSM teams have been welcoming of AIOps, believing that it has the potential to deliver great value to them as their IT environments become more distributed, hybrid and complex. Not so with DevOps teams. It's safe to say they've kept AIOps at arm's length, because they don't think it's relevant nor useful for what they do. Instead, to manage the software code they develop and deploy, they've focused on observability ...
The post-pandemic environment has resulted in a major shift on where SREs will be located, with nearly 50% of SREs believing they will be working remotely post COVID-19, as compared to only 19% prior to the pandemic, according to the 2020 SRE Survey Report from Catchpoint and the DevOps Institute ...
All application traffic travels across the network. While application performance management tools can offer insight into how critical applications are functioning, they do not provide visibility into the broader network environment. In order to optimize application performance, you need a few key capabilities. Let's explore three steps that can help NetOps teams better support the critical applications upon which your business depends ...

Will Cappelli on the AI+ITOPS Podcast: "I'll predict that in 5 years time, APM as we know it will have been completely mutated into an observability plus dynamic analytics capability."
When you consider that the average end-user interacts with at least 8 applications, then think about how important those applications are in the overall success of the business and how often the interface between the application and the hardware needs to be updated, it's a potential minefield for business operations. Any single update could explode in your face at any time ...
Despite the efforts in modernizing and building a robust infrastructure, IT teams routinely deal with the application, database, hardware, or software outages that can last from a few minutes to several days. These types of incidents can cause financial losses to businesses and damage its reputation ...
