New Relic is the leading observability platform where Dev and Ops teams come together to solve problems with data. Today, we launched our new Data Plus option to help teams of all sizes scale their observability practices with advanced data capabilities, such as extended retention, logs obfuscation, increased query limits, FedRAMP/HIPAA compliance options, and more.

Data Plus is offered at the promotional price of $0.50/GB of data ingest, a 56% bundled discount compared to using each capability individually.

With Data Plus, data-first engineering organizations get access to industry-leading performance, scale, and governance capabilities to support their growing observability practice. It includes extended data retention for historical analysis, high-performance querying across larger volumes of data, and FedRAMP and HIPAA compliance for eligible customers. More features are on the way, including exports of streaming and historical data, additional cloud provider choice, and more. 

Instead of dealing with individual contracting and billing, you get the simple and affordable per-GB pricing of our secure, hyper-scalable, cloud-based telemetry data platform that engineers can trust. No complex billing structures. No overage premiums.

Here’s what you get with New Relic Data Plus: 

  • 90 days extended retention over current default retention levels
  • Up to 3x the maximum query limit and 2x the maximum duration per query
  • FedRAMP and HIPAA compliance
  • Logs obfuscation rules
  • Enhanced streaming and historical data export
  • Multi-cloud provider choice 
  • Vulnerability management 

90 days extended retention over current default retention levels

Instead of paying individual premiums for data indexing and retention of each data source, you can choose which data you store in New Relic for a longer period without increasing your monthly data costs. Learn how to view and manage data retention.

Up to 3x the maximum query limit and 2x the maximum duration per query

You can analyze large data volumes faster, with the ability to inspect up to one trillion data points per 30 minutes and 100 billion data points per minute, compared to 300 billion data points per 30 minutes and 10 billion data points per minute in the current data option. In addition, New Relic Data Plus customers benefit from an increased maximum query duration of up to two minutes, versus 60 seconds in the existing data option.

Data Plus increases the maximum query duration time for queries using New Relic Query Language (NRQL) and NerdGraph. Learn about longer query durations with Data Plus and learn how to analyze more data with long-running queries in this video:

FedRAMP and HIPAA compliance

New Relic Data Plus provides options for our customers in highly regulated sectors to access the additional security configurations required for FedRAMP and HIPAA compliance, including FedRAMP-compliant endpoints.

Logs obfuscation rules

You can track logs obfuscation rules directly in our log management UI and create anonymized identifiers for sensitive log data, such as personally identifiable information (PII), access tokens, and other private or regulated data.

Historical data export

You can use our historical data export to query data from 12 or more hours ago using a NRQL query that returns up to 200 million data points in a response (instead of the usual limit of 2,000), with no query timeouts. Engineering teams get:

  • Increased flexibility for deeper data exploration across related entities, events, and anomalies within your stack
  • The ability to upload results to external analytics tools

Read more about historical data exports via Nerdgraph and historical data exports vs streaming data exports.

Streaming data export

You can export your telemetry data from New Relic to external tools and sources for compliance, security, and data analysis. Use NRQL in the NerdGraph explorer to create and manage rules that specify the type of data you want to export. Use streaming data export (instead of historical data export) when you need to populate your data lake from multiple disparate data sources for external data analysis tools—or when you need real-time access to your New Relic data.

The mechanism for exporting your streaming data is AWS Kinesis Data Firehose. The ingested data is immediately sent out of New Relic, different from historical data exports, which export existing data.

Learn more about the difference between historical data exports and streaming data exports.

Multi-cloud provider choice

Our customers often ask for flexibility to run observability workloads on the cloud provider of their choice. At FutureStack, we announced upcoming multi-cloud support with Microsoft Azure as an official cloud provider, so you can choose where New Relic stores your data. Azure customers will also be able to use New Relic as their default observability platform by natively integrating New Relic into Azure Portal. You can save costs, store the telemetry data you send to New Relic on Azure, and gain deep visibility into Azure services.
