Dashboard anything. Observe everything.

Query, visualize, alert on, and understand your data no matter where it’s stored. With Grafana you can create, explore and share all of your data through beautiful, flexible dashboards.

Why Grafana?

Unify your data, not your database

Grafana doesn’t require you to ingest data to a backend store or vendor database. Instead, Grafana takes a unique approach to providing a “single-pane-of-glass” by unifying your existing data, wherever it lives.

With Grafana, you can take any of your existing data- be it from your Kubernetes cluster, raspberry pi, different cloud services, or even Google Sheets- and visualize it however you want, all from a single dashboard.

Data everyone can see

Grafana was built on the principle that data should be accessible to everyone in your organization, not just the single Ops person.

By democratizing data, Grafana helps to facilitate a culture where data can easily be used and accessed by the people that need it, helping to break down data silos and empower teams.

Dashboards that anyone can use

Not only do Grafana dashboards give insightful meaning to data collected from numerous sources, but you can also share the dashboards you create with other team members, allowing you to explore the data together.

With Grafana, anyone can create and share dynamic dashboards to foster collaboration and transparency.

Flexibility and versatility

Translate and transform any of your data into flexible and versatile dashboards. Unlike other tools, Grafana allows you to build dashboards specifically for you and your team.

With advanced querying and transformation capabilities, you can customize your panels to create visualizations that are actually helpful for you.

“When you become a big business with all this data, you need to pull it together. And I think Grafana is the gel that pulls everything together from across the business to give us a real-time snapshot of how Utilita’s doing at any given moment. It’s incredibly valuable."

Adrian Goater, Web Development Manager, Utilita

“We can audit our data to see which metrics have the highest cardinality, or to see which services are publishing the most metric series. This gives us an opportunity to know where to filter out metrics for the highest impact.

Jake Utley, Senior Software Engineer, Hiya

“We not only track traditional technical and engineering metrics in Grafana. We also present much-needed operational data that various business teams use to get a pulse on the day-to-day health of the business.”

Carl Johnson, Director of Infrastructure and SRE, The Trade Desk

“It’s sort of like all signal, no noise. You call Grafana up and it just shows you what you want, which is really nice.”

Matt Menzenski, Software Engineering Manager, PayIt
