Package Management for Monitoring

Posted by : Steven Acreman | Product Updates, monitoring, Microservices, Dataloop.IO | 0 Comments

Grouping things up into easily deployable artifacts isn't a new concept.

We recently added a Packs Library to Dataloop that uses our unique plugin deployment technology to single click install monitoring for common services. On top of this we added auto-discovery to automate the installation of packs. So now you can get from no monitoring to a base coverage for your common services across thousands of hosts in a matter of minutes.

How we scaled our monitoring platform

Posted by : Steven Acreman | Engineering, monitoring, Dataloop.IO, cloud monitoring | 0 Comments

Monitoring at scale is a hard task so we often get asked by people what our architecture looks like. The reality is that it's constantly changing over time. This blog aims to capture our current design based upon what we've learnt to date. It may all be different given another year. To provide some background we initially started Dataloop.IO just under 18 months ago. Before then we had all been involved in creating SaaS products at various companies where monitoring and deployments were always a large part of our job.
