groundcover Launches inCloud: Enterprise On-premise Observability Backend

groundcover introduces inCloud, a modern
observability backend tailor-made for cloud-native environments. inCloud –
currently supported on AWS and GCP –  offers a unique combination of a
fully managed enterprise-grade observability storage infrastructure for logs,
metrics and traces, alongside full data privacy, and data retention
control keeping all observability data inside the customer’s cloud
infrastructure. inCloud automatically connects to groundcover’s cutting-edge
eBPF sensor and its SaaS user interface – comprising groundcover’s full-stack
observability platform.

Today’s observability solutions offer organizations an impossible
dilemma: Choose to ship all observability data to a managed 3rd party solution
and risk exposing sensitive data and paying immense and unpredictable costs for
their data volumes, or turn to build and lean on a self-hosted open-source
stack which requires endless maintenance and provides a sub-par experience.

Backed by best-of-breed technologies like ClickHouse and
VictoriaMetrics, groundcover’s  inCloud strikes the perfect balance in
order to solve this dilemma. It offers a separation between an on-premise and
private data plane and a remote control plane that manages its infrastructure
and facilitates a secured access to its data sources. This unique approach
allows groundcover to support any scale, cut network and storage costs
dramatically, and offer a flat price for any volume of logs, metrics or traces.

groundcover’s inCloud fully manages, configures, and
maintains the necessary infrastructure within the cloud environment of the
customer, supporting streamlined deployment, resource tuning, disaster recovery
and guaranteed availability. It leverages additional services by the cloud
provider such as cloud storage, managed Kubernetes services, virtual private
cloud networks, and load balancers, to create a robust and scalable
environment. Health monitoring, security patching and scaling are all automated.
Access to groundcover’s inCloud is securely managed through the cloud
provider’s built-in access federation features, with specific roles and
permissions set up to ensure that the groundcover control plane can manage
resources effectively, while adhering to strict security principles. 

The entire setup, from infrastructure provisioning to ongoing
maintenance, is managed by groundcover, providing an enterprise-grade solution
that minimizes the operational burdens of installing and maintaining an
observability solution on-premise. inCloud is the only solution in the market
that combines the advantages of an on-premise deployment with the hassle free
promise of a SaaS solution.
