Instana now supports deployment via Cloud-Native Buildpack for applications running on Google Cloud Run.

Instana has delivered a fast and easy way to deploy observability and performance monitoring into serverless functions running on the Google Cloud Platform.

“In fast-changing cloud-based serverless application environments, DevOps teams require application monitoring and observability methodology that not only monitors and traces the infrastructure, but can also deploy quickly and easily,” said Chris Farrell, Technical Director and Observability Strategist at Instana. “The Instana Cloud-native Buildpack for Google Cloud Run allows teams to deploy the automated serverless monitoring and tracing by simply dropping the Buildpack into their environment.”

Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform, powered by automated Application Performance Monitoring, discovers and maps all services, infrastructure and their inter-dependencies automatically. Instana ingests all observability metrics, traces each request, profiles every process and updates application dependency maps in real time to deliver the context and actionable feedback needed by Dev+Ops to optimize application performance, enable innovation and mitigate risk to help them add value and efficiency to the pipeline.

Combined with IBM Watson AIOps, for example, Instana’s Enterprise Observability Platform delivers automatic monitoring and application pipeline management that Dev and Ops teams need to deliver, deploy and maintain applications faster and with higher quality.

Instana’s Cloud-Native Buildpack for Google Cloud Run creates the fastest and easiest way to deploy Instana’s monitoring and tracing onto serverless workloads running in Google Cloud. The Buildpack automatically adds Instana monitoring and tracing into any Buildpack deployment. Users simply issue a “pack build” command to add in Instana, and the Buildpack will deploy configured monitoring sensors, enabling monitoring and tracing instantly.

With support for AWS Lambda, Fargate, Google Cloud Run and other serverless infrastructure, Instana provides broad capabilities to automatically monitor serverless workload performance and trace distributed requests through any workload, including serverless functions. Even in highly volatile, constantly changing environments, Instana’s real-time change detection and mapping keep up so that everyone from Dev + Ops gets the performance data they need at any time.
