New Relic, Inc., the observability platform company, and Grafana Labs, a popular open source dashboarding platform, are forming an ongoing partnership to drive advanced open instrumentation and visibility for developers and software teams.
The companies are delivering new integrations designed to empower engineering teams to solve problems even faster.
Available now, Prometheus users can use the Prometheus remote write capability to send metric data directly to New Relic’s Telemetry Data Platform with a single configuration change.
Additionally, Grafana open source users can now add the Telemetry Data Platform as a Grafana data source using Grafana’s native Prometheus data source.
This enables teams to enjoy New Relic’s up-to 13 months of retention for their Prometheus metrics while continuing to use their existing Grafana dashboards and alerts.
With New Relic’s new PromQL-style syntax, Prometheus users no longer need to learn a new query language.
Additionally, Grafana Enterprise customers using Grafana’s New Relic data source plugin will enjoy updates designed to support New Relic’s latest NRQL capabilities.
The plugin enables users to query any data stored in the Telemetry Data Platform using New Relic’s native query language to build dashboards in Grafana Enterprise.
As part of the collaboration, paid New Relic customers will enjoy a free trial of Grafana Enterprise for 30 days.
New Relic and Grafana Labs have committed to driving better cross-functionality between the two companies, so joint customers can benefit from using New Relic and Grafana together.
“New Relic is committed to supporting open source software and I am proud to partner with the world’s number one open source visualization leader. Our customers can now visualize their Prometheus metrics stored in New Relic’s Telemetry Data Platform using Grafana’s world-class dashboards with just one simple config change. This partnership further strengthens New Relic’s commitment to advancing open instrumentation and democratizing observability for all,” said Bill Staples, chief product officer, New Relic.
