Why Grafana Cloud is your best observability platform

The only composable observability platform

Grafana Cloud is the only platform that adapts to your needs, whether you’re just getting started with observability or you already have tools in place.

  • Unify data from more than 100+ external data sources into a single dashboard to gain full stack visibility, track real-time SLI/SLO metrics, and more.
  • Send your local Prometheus, Graphite, InfluxDB, or Datadog metrics to a common backend on Grafana Cloud.
  • Leverage the tightly integrated stack to correlate metrics with logs and traces for actionable insights.

Turnkey infrastructure integrations

Choose from more than 50 curated infrastructure integrations that include only the metrics and logs you need to monitor, without causing cardinality problems.

  • Out-of-the-box dashboards, metrics, alerts, and logs for Kubernetes and legacy infrastructure.
  • Single agent setup for collecting metrics, logs, and traces.
  • Discover underutilized resources within Kubernetes clusters.

Cost-efficient observability at massive scale

Keep up with the explosive growth in telemetry data without compromising query speeds, dashboard performance, or your budget. Native multi-tenancy and high availability can support enterprise-level scale, and object storage makes long-term storage reliable and cost-effective.

  • Scale up to 1B active series with Grafana Mimir, our horizontally scalable TSDB.
  • Store more logs using less storage thanks to Grafana Loki’s minimal indexing architecture.
  • Keep rampant metrics growth in check with prebuilt cardinality dashboards.

It didn’t take much time or effort to bring all these different data sources into a single Grafana dashboard using Grafana Cloud. From problem statement to having our first business dashboard up and running was two weeks. And now, months removed from our launch, Grafana Cloud is helping us to track SLAs, reduce MTTR, and foster an observability-centric culture.
Carl Meert
Site Reliability Engineer
Before we started using Grafana Loki, searching for logs was a challenge. The one-stop-shop experience with Grafana Cloud gives us the ability to cross-reference data with application workload and infrastructure metrics, which saves us time and makes our search for relevant logs much easier.
Yoram Kruvi
DevOps Lead
We moved to Grafana Cloud Advanced to have [the data] presented and to have our client given access and it was quite user friendly. The maintenance is simpler, and secure access is guaranteed. That’s the reason why I personally want to support the Grafana environment. For me, Grafana definitely gave us the right direction to move on with the development we are going through in general.
Guus Derksen
Project Leader for Dredging Consultancy
We do pretty much everything through Prometheus, so for long-term storage, dashboards, and alerting we send all of that to Grafana. Grafana Cloud sits on it and allows us to make the data available so that any product team can dashboard and alert off of the information whenever and wherever they want…I’ve never been happier with our monitoring situation than we are right now. Things can only get better from here.
