New Relic platform updates

Check out the latest features released across the New Relic platform each quarter.

Spring 2019

Introducing New Relic One

New Relic One is the next evolution of the New Relic platform. It connects all the data your teams need to understand their increasingly complex and interdependent systems. With New Relic One, more than ever before, you can focus on building more perfect software for your customers, not building your monitoring solution.

Global search

Any part of your digital system can be the source of a problem, and they can be owned by different teams or departments. New Relic One lets you searches across domains—from mobile, to applications, to infrastructure—and across your enterprise. Or use tags to filter to just the systems you care about.

Homepage

View your digital system from a higher-level entry point, with access to tools that help you understand and explore your data and a summary of the entities you care most about. And those different tools for different use cases all operate on the same connected underlying data, with links deep into the New Relic platform. You choose the right tool for the job, and quickly zero in on problem areas for deeper exploration.

Entity explorer

See everything you monitor in one place and quickly zoom into just what you care about. Entity explorer is an organization and navigation layer of all the entities across all your New Relic accounts and products, giving you quick summary data to let you know if a service, or mobile app, or cloud integration warrants further investigation.

Service map

View your service and its status in context of its up and downstream dependencies to quickly identify the root cause when troubleshooting an incident.

Dashboards

Quickly create information dense custom views into the data that matters most to you, with a rich set of features built-in to make them easy to understand and use. And if you already have dashboards built in Insights? No problem—they automatically appear in New Relic One for viewing and editing.

Other product updates

  • New Relic Infrastructure: Kubernetes Cluster Explorer - Kubernetes cluster explorer provides a multi-dimensional representation of a Kubernetes cluster that lets you zoom into your namespaces, deployments, nodes, pods, containers, and applications. With the cluster explorer, you can easily retrieve the data and metadata of these elements, and understand how they are related.
  • New Relic Infrastructure: Monitoring for AWS Lambda - From performance data like duration, to trigger sources: get a dedicated UI inside of New Relic One to monitor every invocation of your Lambda functions. When used with Distributed Tracing, New Relic’s Lambda monitoring lets you see the path of requests that led to its execution, and how it spans into other distributed traces.
  • New Relic Synthetics: Synthetics Chrome Runtime - All synthetic monitors use Chrome version 72 for the runtime environment. There are also enhancements to NodeJS and WebDriver that provide increased flexibility for creating synthetic scripts.

Kubernetes Monitoring

This month we introduced the New Relic Infrastructure on-host integration for Kubernetes, providing deep monitoring of the container orchestration layer. This integration collects metrics that monitor data and metadata for nodes, Namespaces, Deployments, ReplicaSets, Pods, and containers, so you can fully monitor your frontend and backend applications and hosts running in your Kubernetes clusters. Expect total visibility, alerting, and dashboards for all Kubernetes entities that live in between your applications. Check out our blog post to learn more.

Distributed Tracing for New Relic APM

Distributed tracing helps you find and resolve issues quickly in your complex architecture—even ones that use both monoliths and microservices. Now you can more easily track a request across a complex system, discover what’s causing latencies, find where an error originated, and identify ways to optimize code and improve your customer experience. Read all the details.

New Relic Distributed Tracing

EU Region

New Relic has launched its first European Region, addressing the need to differentiate on latency and data privacy. Located in Frankfurt, Germany, our European Data Center was established in partnership with IBM. As control over data processing has become an increasing concern for many European companies, the New Relic European Region will provide the ability to store your performance data in Europe while leveraging the New Relic SaaS-based platform to move faster and with confidence.

  • New Relic Infrastructure: Google Kubernetes Engine Monitoring Integration - While Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE) manages your Kubernetes infrastructure, our new monitoring integration gives you application- and infrastructure-centric views into your clusters, so you can effectively troubleshoot, scale, and manage your dynamic environment.
  • New Relic Alerts: Incident Context for Faster Orientation During an Incident - Incident context in New Relic Alerts helps you get oriented and resolve issues faster by detecting unusual behavior in your system, placing it alongside alert information, and proactively guiding your team on where to troubleshoot the error. Watch the demo video.

New integrations for AWS, Azure, and Google Cloud Platform make it easier to observe and alert on what’s happening in multi-cloud and hybrid environments. Unlike other tools which provide limited visibility, New Relic gives you a consistent view across all your apps and hosts, no matter where they live—and no matter if you’re just starting to plan your migration or fully running in the cloud—so you can accelerate your cloud adoption and deployment.

Our new cloud service integrations include:

  • Google Cloud Platform: Compute Engine, Cloud Storage Service, Cloud Functions Service
  • AWS: Elastic Beanstalk, Simple Email Service (SES), Auto Scaling, CloudTrail (beta), Personal Health Dashboards (beta)
    See our full list of AWS integrations.
  • Azure: Virtual Machines, Functions, Cosmos DB, Service Bus, Virtual Network, AppService, SQL DB Service, Storage (beta), Load Balancer (beta)
    See our full list of Azure integrations.
