Since our announced plans to support Google Stackdriver customers with new levels of hybrid and multi-cloud visibility, we have worked closely with the Google Cloud Platform team to make early access a seamless experience. We’re pleased to now support Stackdriver monitoring metrics collection via a new entrypoint on the Google Cloud Marketplace. This allows customers of Stackdriver to open their observability aperture to infrastructure and resources running on Azure, data centers, or specialized workloads running in GCP. Why does this rock if you use GCP today, or are considering a GCP migration?
With the addition of BindPlane, GCP customers can monitor workloads in Microsoft Azure, Alibaba and IBM Cloud. BindPlane also significantly expands Stackdriver visibility into AWS workloads as well. On Azure alone, Stackdriver now can support more than 25 distinct services including CosmosDB, Azure Directory and Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS).
Now you can use Stackdriver as your central plane of visibility, and easily compare performance between private and public clouds before, during and after migration.
We’re excited to continue the evolution of our partnership with Google Cloud. Check out the Google blog for details on activating BindPlane for Stackdriver. And read our post on how to set up full-stack dashboards in Stackdriver leveraging data from across a wide range of sources. This just scratches the surface of what’s possible with Stackdriver, so don’t miss the opportunity to learn more at Google Cloud Next this spring. And watch for us to deliver more capabilities to serve the observability needs of the Stackdriver community.
