Why scale metrics with Grafana Cloud?

High performance at any scale

Struggling with slow queries and sluggish dashboards at massive scale? Grafana Cloud Metrics, powered by Grafana Mimir, is built to horizontally scale and manage high cardinality data in cloud native infrastructures.

  • 100% Prometheus compatible with remote-write, PromQL, alerting, and a query builder to remove onboarding friction.
  • Sharded query engine for 10x improvement in query speed; scalable compactor for unlimited cardinality, tested up to 1 billion active series.
  • High availability, durable storage, and support for out-of-order sample ingestion.

Optimize metric cardinality

Need to keep observability costs in check without compromising on reliability? Grafana Cloud Metrics’ cost optimization toolkit provides actionable insights so you can manage metric cardinality and usage.

  • Visualize high cardinality metrics and labels with out-of-the-box cardinality analysis dashboards.
  • Track and attribute metric volume to specific teams, services, or products through usage groups.
  • Gain valuable insights to eliminate costly unused and partially used metrics.

Streamline your hybrid observability operations

Transitioning from legacy monitoring to cloud native? The Grafana Cloud Metrics backend supports multiple metrics formats, reducing time and money spent on operations and improving efficiency.

  • Best-in-class Prometheus metrics ingestion and querying performance and scale.
  • Support for legacy and proprietary metric formats like Graphite, Datadog, and InfluxDB as well as modern, vendor-agnostic standards like OpenTelemetry metrics.
  • Interoperability with any of these formats requires zero re-instrumentation of agents or application code.

“Our two primary applications are underpinned by over 100 microservices, each with its own observability requirements. We need to ensure there are real-time alerts, debugging, and investigations if the services are down or not performing to the expected SLOs. By using Grafana Cloud Metrics and Grafana Cloud Logs – not to mention the out of the box Kubernetes Monitoring solution and AWS Cloudwatch plugin – we now have a tool that is able to support where we are now and where we are planning to go in the future.
Jameel Al-Aziz

“If any team at the company is running Kubernetes and wants to add metrics to analyze in Grafana, they only need to tag the pods and deployments properly. There are new things every day. This would be impossible to do using other tools — or it would require us to write code and change our code in order to do it. Neither of those is worth it given what Grafana Cloud Metrics allows us to do out of the box.
Fernando Costa
Lead Site Reliability Engineer, Lightbend
“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.
