Instana Announces Availability of Automated Red Hat OpenShift Native Application Performance Management Solution on Red Hat Marketplace

Red Hat Marketplace provides a one-stop-shop to purchase enterprise applications and deploy across any cloud or on-premise

Chicago, IL – September 9, 2020 – Instana today announced that its automated application performance management solution for monitoring applications running on Red Hat OpenShift is now available through Red Hat Marketplace. Red Hat Marketplace is an open cloud marketplace for enterprise customers to discover, try, purchase, deploy, and manage certified container-based software across environments—public and private, cloud and on-premises. Through the marketplace, customers can take advantage of responsive support, streamlined billing and contracting, simplified governance, and single-dashboard visibility across clouds.

Instana’s application monitoring solution discovers and maps application infrastructure and services, deploys monitoring sensors across the entire application stack and identifies the triggering event whenever a problem might impact service – all automatically, without any human configuration. When monitoring orchestrated applications with Instana, Red Hat OpenShift users get comprehensive Kubernetes monitoring capabilities:

  •              Automatic monitoring of the full Red Hat OpenShift stack including Kubernetes Nodes, Pods and Clusters
  •              End-to-end distributed tracing of every single request, correlated with application and infrastructure monitoring
  •              Always-On low impact production profiling for every process, with single-click integration for any trace

“Instana wants to provide the easiest possible way to deploy and use application monitoring capabilities for cloud-native and microservice applications,” said Chris Farrell, Technical Director and APM Strategist at Instana. “It’s natural to extend that ease of use to include the initial acquisition and purchase of Instana through the Red Hat Marketplace so that users can quickly and easily get a monitoring solution purpose-built to support Red Hat OpenShift based applications.”

Built in collaboration with Red Hat and IBM, Red Hat Marketplace delivers a hybrid multicloud trifecta for organizations moving into the next era of computing: a robust ecosystem of partners, an industry-leading Kubernetes container platform, and award-winning commercial support—all on a highly scalable backend powered by IBM. A private, personalized marketplace is also available through Red Hat Marketplace Select, enabling clients to provide their teams with easier access to curated software their organizations have pre-approved.

“We believe Red Hat Marketplace is an essential destination to unlock the value of cloud investments,” said Lars Herrmann, senior director of technology partnerships, Red Hat. “With the marketplace, we are making it as fast and easy as possible for companies to implement the tools and technologies that can help them succeed in this hybrid multicloud world. We’ve simplified the steps to find and purchase tools like Instana’s APM solution for Red Hat OpenShift that are tested, certified and supported on Red Hat OpenShift, and we’ve removed operational barriers to deploying and managing these technologies on Kubernetes-native infrastructure.”

“Through Red Hat Marketplace, we’re expanding our ecosystem together with partners like Instana and helping our customers thrive in a hybrid multicloud world,” said Sandesh Bhat, IBM General Manager, Open Cloud Technology & Applications. “Container-based environments are the future of enterprise technology, and Red Hat OpenShift is the industry’s most comprehensive enterprise Kubernetes platform. We’re excited to simplify software purchase and adoption for our clients through a curated private Marketplace experience.”

Red Hat Marketplace is designed to meet the unique needs of developers, procurement teams and IT leaders through simplified and streamlined access to popular enterprise software. All solutions available through the marketplace have been tested and certified for Red Hat OpenShift, allowing them to run anywhere OpenShift runs. A containers-based approach helps ensure that applications can be run and managed the exact same way, regardless of the underlying cloud infrastructure. This gives companies the flexibility to run their workloads on premise or in any public or private cloud with improved portability and confidence that their applications and data are protected against vendor lock-in.
