Introducing KubViz: An open framework for Cloud-Native Observability

Last Update : 11 July, 2024 | Published : 27 February, 2024 | 5 Min Read

Gone are the days of simple, monolithic applications running on a centralized infrastructure. Today’s businesses rely on systems composed of microservices, distributed clouds, and technologies like AI and machine learning, which introduce complexity in performance analysis.

Traditional monitoring tools offer limited visibility, leaving blind spots across the IT ecosystem. This translates directly into operational inefficiencies: system downtime impacts revenue, poor user experience weakens trust, and lack of predictive insights hinders proactive planning. Resource utilization also suffers, leading to unnecessary costs.

Here’s where observability comes into play.


Why Do We Need Observability?

Observability helps to holistically assess, oversee, and manage your cloud services, applications, and infrastructure – all through a single pane of glass while also providing unparalleled insight into your system’s internal state. Real-time data analytics reveal what needs attention, optimizing resource utilization and enabling informed decision-making.

For this reason, observability is seeing its adoption among businesses that see its value in empowering IT, operations, development, and networking teams to identify and analyze anomalies faster. The unified, real-time visibility of your entire IT stack will enable teams to identify and resolve issues before they impact customers.

How well your systems perform directly impacts revenue, speed, and overall return on investment. Observability ensures you have the right data at the right time to achieve your availability, functionality, and optimal ROI goals.

KubViz – An Observability Platform with Contextual Building Blocks

As more teams use platforms like Kubernetes, Git, and Containers, ensuring everyone works together, performs well, and remains secure is crucial. That’s why we built KubViz, your go-to observability platform .

KubViz provides a centralized way to manage and monitor the entire DevSecOps process and secure your software supply chain. The platform provides organizations the ability to acquire in-depth insights and manage their software delivery pipeline by fusing essential components of the development, security, and operations processes.
