Technology teams are accomplishing more, faster thanks to the power and flexibility of Amazon Web Services (AWS), but these services present new challenges for monitoring. From on-prem and cloud resources to containers and microservices, with more moving pieces and frequent changes, it’s harder than ever to keep up. New Relic Infrastructure combines configuration monitoring and real-time health metrics with a dynamic, tag-driven approach to dashboards and alerting to give ops teams an unparalleled view of their dynamic AWS infrastructure.
- Reduce mean time to detection (MTTD) and resolution (MTTR) with visibility into config changes and EC2 health
- Minimize setup and maintenance with dynamic alerts and dashboards that scale with your infrastructure
- Instantly track the costs of AWS services and forecast for future growth
- Improve efficiency with the ability to slice and dice on any EC2 attribute
- Support DevOps initiatives with 100% visibility of all team actions
Slice and dice by any AWS attribute
Some EC2 hosts are more important to you than others, which is why New Relic Infrastructure makes it easy for you to focus on what you care about most. View your hosts through the lens of any AWS attribute, such as role, tier, availability zone (AZ), and data center, or even custom EC2 tags.
Track and forecast AWS service costs
Maintain visibility on the billing impact of fast growing applications that use a wide variety of AWS services. Cost and forecasting dashboards can help you more accurately prepare budget estimates that may impact the bottom line.
Build custom dashboards and auto-scaling alerts
View your AWS data any way you like with custom dashboards. And build alerts to stay on top of any developments that could impact the performance of your infrastructure. Both dashboards and alerts auto-scale with your EC2 inventory so you can make sure you’re always monitoring the entirety of your EC2 ecosystem.
See a real-time view of your hosts (including EC2)
Part of the value of AWS EC2 is the ability to automatically adjust the number of instances you have on an ongoing basis, thus helping you make sure you always have the right amount for the tasks at hand. But if your monitoring solution can’t keep up with the latest, most accurate list of instances, it won’t be very useful. New Relic Infrastructure automatically scrubs your list of EC2 instances to give you an accurate view of them in real time.
Visibility into EC2 and more
While EC2 powers most AWS workloads, you’re likely using a number of other AWS services to power your applications. New Relic Infrastructure Pro allows you to see the real-time status of many popular AWS services, including:
- Amazon CloudFront
- Amazon DynamoDB
- Amazon EBS
- AWS ElastiCache
- AWS Elastic Load Balancing
- AWS IAM
- Amazon Kinesis
- Amazon Kinesis Firehose
- Amazon RDS
- Amazon SNS
- Amazon ECR
- Amazon ECS
- Amazon SQS
- Amazon VPC
These integrations make it easier to view and account for your AWS usage—whether that means analyzing your AWS spend, preparing for a quarterly budget review or forecast, assessing the impact of scaling up your service, or looking at spikes and dips in usage and data flow so you can fine tune your AWS infrastructure and application management.
