Elastic + Grafana Labs partner on the official Grafana Elasticsearch plugin

Today, I’m happy to share more about our partnership and commitment to our users that they will have the best possible experience of both Elasticsearch and Grafana, across the full breadth of Elasticsearch functionality, with dedicated engineering from both Grafana Labs and Elastic. Through joint development of the official Grafana Elasticsearch plugin users can combine the benefits of Grafana’s visualization platform with the full capabilities of Elasticsearch.


Why we're partnering with Elastic to build the Elasticsearch plugin for Grafana

As I’ve often talked about before, we have a “big tent” philosophy at Grafana Labs. We believe our users should determine their own observability strategy and choose their own tools; Grafana allows them to bring together and understand all their data, no matter where it lives. In practice, that means that we want to support data sources that our users are passionate about.


Service Map & Dashboards Provide Insight into Health and Dependencies of Microservice Architecture

With almost every blog you read about monitoring, troubleshooting, or more recently, the observability of modern application stacks, you’ve probably read a statement saying that complexity is growing as a demand for more elasticity increases which makes management of these applications increasingly difficult. This blog will be no exception, but there’s a good reason for that: we just enabled the first Sumo Logic customers with powerful new tools to tackle these exact challenges.

Correlate Your Metrics, Logs & Traces with the curated OSS observability stack from Grafana Labs

Correlation between metrics, logs, and traces should be as effortless as possible. This helps you make better decisions and actions. The Grafana Labs open-source observability stack enables powerful correlations between your metrics, log, and traces. The key here is to have consistent metadata across the three pillars of observability. Let me demo you how this works in this video.

New in Grafana 7.4: Export usage data to Loki to help manage dashboard sprawl and troubleshoot faster

We first released the usage insights Enterprise feature in Grafana 7.0 based on feedback from customers that they would like to better understand how their users are interacting with Grafana, including the dashboards they visit, the information they query, and where they run into issues. What we learned was that dashboard sprawl is a real issue: Administrators estimate that almost 60% of dashboards might not be used at all.


Do This Instead Of That - Better eCommerce Marketing for 2021

If you’re an eCommerce marketer, by now, you’ve read countless articles and studies about how eCommerce sales are skyrocketing, and nearly every person is now a potential customer.

Marketing is the answer to both because it helps you reach new eyeballs while also re-engaging with loyal customers ready to buy again.
