Netdata Cloud Simplifies IT Infrastructure Monitoring and Troubleshooting for more than 25 Thousand Users in 2020

Award-winning, Free Service Helps Developers and IT Professionals Diagnose System and Application Issues in Real Time
SAN FRANCISCO, Calif. – December 15, 2020 – Netdata, the company behind the eponymous open-source, distributed, real-time, performance and health monitoring solution for systems and applications, today announced that it has helped more than 25 thousand developers and IT professionals reduce the cost and complexity of IT infrastructure monitoring with its free, open-source-based solution.

“The cost and complexity of infrastructure monitoring is daunting for many organizations,” said Costa Tsaousis, chief executive officer and founder of Netdata. “Before Netdata, infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting required extensive pre-planning, with a high degree of resource, time, and financial investment by teams with deep knowledge and domain expertise. Worse, the result often left IT teams scrambling to the command line when high-level dashboards with insufficient granularity or resolution failed to uncover issues. Netdata radically simplifies IT infrastructure monitoring and troubleshooting with its zero-configuration, zero-compromises approach.”

Netdata Cloud, introduced in May, is a free software service that extends the single-node monitoring and troubleshooting previously available in the free, open-source Netdata Agent to provide visibility into the entire infrastructure at a glance. The distributed data architecture of Netdata Cloud enables it to scale infinitely to handle infrastructure of any size and complexity with no pre-planning and zero configuration. Thousands of metrics for hundreds of systems and applications are automatically detected, collected, and meaningfully visualized for optimal anomaly detection with helpful, exploratory tools like metric correlations for faster root-cause analysis.
