announced major enhancements to Sysdig
Monitor, its container monitoring platform, in support of
enterprise-class Docker deployments. This broad announcement covers
scale of Docker containers monitored; performance of analysis and
visualization; and deeper integrations with Prometheus and Docker
Enterprise Edition with integrated orchestration.
customers are rapidly growing their production Docker deployments, both
in the cloud and behind the firewall," notes David Messina,
SVP of Marketing at Docker. "In light of this surge in enterprise
traction, Sysdig is addressing the importance of scalable, reliable
container visibility for these organizations."
"We have seen a rapid evolution of the Docker container market over the past couple of years," said Loris Degioanni,
CEO and Founder of Sysdig. "While Docker started as a
developer-oriented project in small organizations, it has rapidly become
a key infrastructure platform for production-class deployments in
enterprises. As such, enterprises expect monitoring, troubleshooting,
and performance management tools that support Docker."
Docker Monitoring at Enterprise-Class Scale
Both Sysdig Monitor
Cloud and Sysdig Monitor On-Premise Software now provide even greater
scale in support of Docker deployments. A single instance of Sysdig
Monitor can now support high-performance monitoring of 100,000
concurrent containers over thousands of hosts.
"Our customers' container deployments are very large, and continuing to grow every month," notes Chris Crane,
VP of Product at Sysdig. "It was essential that our product could scale
alongside their deployments to provide them with the visibility they
monitoring is particularly challenging not only for the number of
containers in question, but also the number of metrics Sysdig collects
per container and per host. "Unlike solutions where developers are
forced to instrument their code and carefully select a few metrics that
they would like to track, Sysdig collects hundreds of metrics per
container by default. This makes developers' lives easier and
troubleshooting more efficient," said Aditya Kini, VP of Engineering at
"That of course
puts the burden on Sysdig to continue to scale, and this announcement
proves we're up to the challenge. We're looking forward to providing our
customers with another 10x scale improvement in scale as we continue to
grow along with their Docker adoption."
Up to 10x Increase in Docker Performance Analysis and Visualization
Sysdig Monitor has
also launched a new, more powerful analysis and visualization layer to
complement the scale of data collection that it supports.
fast, powerful and responsive analytics that can give insight into
aggregate data across tens of thousands of containers," notes Apurva
Davé, VP of Marketing at Sysdig. "Our enhanced user interface not only
provides users with the speed they expect, but we have also
significantly improved the user experience with an improved workflow. We
have taken feedback from hundreds of customers to create a more
intuitive experience for Sysdig Monitor."
analysis capability is generally available for Sysdig Monitor
Dashboards, in beta for Sysdig Monitor Explore, and private beta for
Sysdig Monitor Alerting.
Enhanced Integrations with Docker Swarm and Prometheus
continues to improve its array of integrations both with
enterprise-class orchestration systems as well as metrics sources and
Sysdig now provides
enhanced integration with Docker EE with integrated Swarm mode
orchestration. "Enterprises continue to invest in orchestration tools as
the key interface into production-class container environments. With
our enhanced integration, customers now get all the benefits of Sysdig's
container intelligence for swarm environments: auto-discovery of the
Swarm master, key master and slave metrics, pre-built dashboards, and
the ability to aggregate data across services," continued Apurva.
Sysdig also now
provides the ability to support Prometheus metrics format. "We work with
many customers who experiment with Prometheus monitoring in their
R&D phase, but then look for an enterprise-class monitoring solution
as they move to production," notes Loris Degioanni.
"In effect, we can collect Prometheus metrics with less overhead per
host and then store those metrics in a more scalable backend. This is
the kind of scalability and simplicity our enterprise customers are
