Liquidshare Reduces Downtime with Observability by Instana
LiquidShare made a shift from Amazon Web Services (AWS) to Google Cloud Platform (GCP), due to the added simplicity GCP provided. As a builder of cloud-native microservice software, the move to GCP helped the company recognize a need for more efficient and simpler observability into its software.
LiquidShare looked at several application monitoring and observability solutions. Instana was quickly selected for its ability to be useful out-of-the box and easy to use for different stakeholders without needing to spend too much time learning the platform. Instana’s platform was also less expensive and complicated than other solutions, such as DataDog, that had been evaluated.
