Grafana Enterprise Metrics

Introducing a scalable, self-hosted Prometheus service that is seamless to use, simple to operate/maintain, and supported by Grafana Labs.

Offer Prometheus-as-a-Service on-premise for your teams today.

Traditional approach

DIY style of scaling Prometheus is complex and requires a lot of effort to maintain throughout different teams.

Scale is limited to a single machine

Lacks data governance, resulting in all-or-nothing access to metrics

Requires a lot of effort to deploy and maintain

Grafana Enterprise Metrics Approach

Enables Prometheus-as-a-Service for large organizations running at scale.

Centralized, horizontally scalable, replicated architecture

Centralized access control and authentication

Simple to deploy and maintain your complete set of metrics in one centralized, cost-effective way

Architected for scale

Grafana Enterprise Metrics provides a centralized, horizontally scalable, replicated architecture so you can easily manage and maintain your Prometheus implementation based on your specific architecture.

Easily store application and infrastructure metrics in one centralized cluster, or across multiple clusters without needing a dedicated team.

Operations made simple

Simple to get started

Grafana Enterprise Metrics gives organizations a fully assembled and configured monitoring stack out of the box so there’s no need to build systems from open source components

Simple to manage

Easily create and manage instances and instance keys with an intuitive API-driven UI.

Simple to customize

Best-in-class query performance means you can quickly create real-time dashboards that can be shared throughout your organization.

Global insights for the whole team

Run a better service with built-in global insights into how your teams use Grafana Enterprise Metrics.

Quickly fix problems like cardinality explosions or query errors

Is there a cardinality explosion?

Where are query errors occurring?

Control costs by weeding out series that are never used or inefficiently used

Which series are most popular, and which ones are never used?

How much storage space does each series and source consume?

What’s the ingestion and query rate of each series?

Find out who’s doing what, for security, chargebacks, and better service

Where is data coming from?

Which users are querying which data?

Integrated with your tools


Grafana Enterprise

Integrates with Grafana Enterprise to provide an easy to use UI to manage Grafana Enterprise Metrics clusters and instances.



Integrates with your existing Prometheus ecosystem so there’s no need to manually edit and manage configuration files.



Integrates with Cortex Alertmanager, so you can easily view and edit your alerting rules from Grafana.



Integrates with Graphite-based data ingestion and querying, so you can either modernize your existing Graphite systems or transition to Prometheus. Let your team choose the Graphite query language or PromQL.

Next-level security

Grafana Enterprise Metrics includes the security features enterprises need to adopt Prometheus at scale and allows administrators to control where their metrics live and who gets to use them.

Enterprise-grade access control allows you to go beyond read and write permissions with fine-grained access control within and across instances.
Robust data-access policies enable administrators to secure and govern data.
Centralized authentication allows you to seamlessly integrate with a current authentication provider.


With Grafana Enterprise Metrics, your team gets support, training, and consulting provided by the Grafana Labs team, including maintainers of Prometheus and Cortex. We’ll help with anything your organization needs to implement Prometheus and Grafana Enterprise Metrics.
