OpsCruise, the cloud application observability company, announced a new serverless observability extension that provides real-time visibility and control to popular AWS Serverless functions. As part of its serverless observability offering, OpsCruise monitors multiple cloud components in the AWS cloud, such as Lambda functions, API Gateways, SQS queues, ECS containers, Kinesis streams, and DynamoDB tables. This will enable DevOps, platform engineers and cloud architects team to have more visibility to detect problems across application components, Kubernetes and the supporting infrastructure before users are impacted.
Organizations are adopting serverless or function-as-a-service (FaaS) components functions to rapidly deliver new features, focus on their customers and accelerate innovation. Serverless architectures provide critical advantages around offloading operational concern, scale and cost. Many modern applications are built serverless-first, a strategy that prioritizes the adoption of serverless microservices, so that application teams can increase agility in managing their application stack. Gartner predicts that, by 2025, 50% of all global enterprises will have deployed serverless function platforms as a service (fPaaS), up from only 20% today1.
While cloud vendors eliminate the need for managing infrastructure with serverless offerings, they provide limited monitoring and control of those environments. The observability challenge is also present in mixed environments, i.e., those where serverless and non-serverless co-exist.
"Traditional monitoring solutions rely on collecting metrics and custom distributed tracing to track service requests to and from the serverless components. Unfortunately, the burden of detecting and understanding problems is left as a DIY offline exercise for the engineers," said Scott Fulton, Co-Founder and CEO of OpsCruise. "In contrast, OpsCruise enhances the visualization of the dynamic topology and state of applications, and also extends its automated and predictive ML and AI capabilities to serverless components as well."
Beyond simply monitoring errors or throttles, OpsCruise has adapted its behavior based modeling to predictively detect problems in the serverless component in real-time. These predictive models can also be used for fault isolation and causal analysis by understanding if the serverless component is misconfigured to handle the volume of requests, for example from an API Gateway or a Kinesis trigger, or if the downstream DynamoDB data store is underprovisioned.
As part of its serverless observability offering, OpsCruise monitors multiple cloud components in the AWS cloud, such as Lambda functions, API Gateways, SQS queues, ECS containers, Kinesis streams, and DynamoDB tables.
OpsCruise is available through the AWS Marketplace as part of your standard AWS billing as well as through a Free Forever plan where customers can start immediately - no credit card or contract commitment necessary.
Founded in 2018 in Santa Clara, California, OpsCruise is a cloud applications performance assurance company, offering the only observability platform purpose-built for Kubernetes applications and serverless infrastructure. A deep understanding of Kubernetes, coupled with its patented contextual AI and ML-based behavior profiling empowers teams to predict performance degradations and instantly surface their cause. In 2021, OpsCruise launched out of stealth with Seed funding to address the $17 billion cloud observability market. Learn more at www.opscruise.com.
