BUSINESS WIRE – New Relic (NYSE: NEWR), the all-in-one observability platform for every engineer, announced the general availability of the Azure Native New Relic Service in the Microsoft Azure Marketplace, to help enterprises accelerate their cloud migration and multi-cloud initiatives. Microsoft Azure customers can now subscribe to the New Relic service to collect telemetry data for applications and infrastructure and store that telemetry data in Azure. In addition, Azure customers can allocate their multi-year committed Azure spend to leverage New Relic, making it significantly easier for customers to allocate budget for all-in-one observability. Today’s news builds on more than a decade of innovation between New Relic and Microsoft to give developers the tools they need to build better software.
According to New Relic’s 2022 Observability Forecast, most organizations expect to have robust observability practices in place by 2025, with multi-cloud migration cited as one of the most common trends driving the need for observability (42%). With this integration, Azure customers can accelerate their cloud journey with New Relic's all-in-one observability platform directly in Azure. DevOps teams can store their telemetry data in Azure, get started fast with Azure integrations and agents, all in a single pane of glass for monitoring all their workloads to debug, measure, and improve their entire stack.
"Observability is essential in today's modern, multi-cloud world. Whether our customers are running applications on data centers, embracing the public cloud, or running things at the edge, they need observability to take a look across all those systems," said New Relic CEO Bill Staples. "Today's news brings together more than a decade of innovation between New Relic and Microsoft, to bring the power of full stack observability to Microsoft developers, so they can accelerate enterprise cloud migration and multi-cloud initiatives.”
"Microsoft and New Relic share a strong commitment to providing world-class developer tools that help make developers and our customers successful. This partnership unlocks greater productivity for all engineers with seamless integration between Azure and New Relic’s all-in-one Observability platform,“ said Scott Guthrie, Executive Vice President, Cloud + AI, Microsoft. "Engineers and business leaders alike will benefit from this unique and powerful experience as they embrace New Relic’s data-driven approach to engineering.”
New Relic helps customers accelerate their cloud adoption and multi-cloud journeys by providing a comprehensive view of the entire application stack, including the underlying cloud infrastructure, application code, and user experience, allowing customers to quickly identify and troubleshoot performance issues, optimize multi-cloud resources, and ensure that their applications are running smoothly.
Integration highlights include:
- Store Telemetry in Azure: Subscribed customers will store their telemetry data on Azure to help align with their digital transformation and multi-cloud strategy.
- Native Azure Marketplace Integration: New Relic has collaborated with Microsoft on the engineering effort to deliver natively integrated New Relic observability solutions through the Azure Marketplace.
- Retire Microsoft Azure Consumption Commitment (MACC): Azure customers can retire their MACC by purchasing New Relic from the Azure Marketplace, which simplifies purchasing and contract management.
- Rapid Onboarding: The Azure Native New Relic Service offers rapid onboarding, incorporating an Azure-specific integration and agent installations from the Azure Portal to help customers monitor and optimize the performance of their Azure-hosted applications and infrastructure. The integration enables Azure customers to send consolidated Azure Platform Logs and Azure Monitor metrics directly to New Relic.
“The players that are going to win in the observability space are the ones that offer their customers the flexibility to run workloads on the cloud of their choice,” said Stephen Elliot, IDC Group Vice President, I&O, Cloud Operations and DevOps. “Businesses are adopting a multi-cloud approach at rapid rates because it can help them further innovation while creating resilience in their systems since they won’t be reliant on a single cloud vendor. There is a tremendous business opportunity for the observability companies that are able to support multiple clouds and find new ways to reach developer communities."
The Azure Native New Relic Service is available for free to all New Relic full platform users and Microsoft Azure customers via the Microsoft Azure Marketplace. For more information, visit www.newrelic.com.
