Coroot Now GA, Open Observability Made Easy

Tired of complex, expensive application performance monitoring (APM) tools? Look no further than Coroot, a powerful open-source observability platform that just went generally available (GA).

Built for Simplicity and Efficiency

Coroot stands out with its focus on ease of use and comprehensive monitoring. Here’s what makes it a compelling choice:

  • Visibility Across Your Entire Stack: Gain complete oversight of your applications, services, and infrastructure – no information gaps. Whether deployed on Kubernetes, VMs, bare-metal servers, or cloud services (DBaaS), Coroot has you covered.
  • Zero-Configuration Monitoring: Leverage the power of eBPF (a modern Linux kernel feature) to gather crucial data without any complex configuration.
  • Predefined Inspections for Root Cause Analysis: Out-of-the-box inspections based on industry best practices can identify the root cause of over 80% of issues, saving you valuable time and effort.

Beyond Kubernetes: Monitoring Made Easy for All

While Coroot initially focused on Kubernetes environments, the GA release brings exciting new features:

  • Universal Agent for Heterogeneous Infrastructure: The new agent simplifies deployment on virtual machines and bare-metal servers, making Coroot a one-stop shop for monitoring your entire infrastructure.
  • Seamless Integration with Docker: Deploy the entire Coroot stack effortlessly using Docker Compose or Docker Swarm, even without Kubernetes.

Ideal for Small Businesses and Agile Teams

Software engineer Anton Peretrukhin of Flant praises Coroot for its “simple-to-configure yet comprehensive” approach. This makes it a perfect fit for small businesses and teams seeking an efficient way to set up monitoring with SLOs, notifications, and request tracing.

Open Source and Collaborative

Coroot is actively developed and embraces open-source principles. It joins other eBPF-based tools like Pixie and Caretta in the growing open-source observability landscape.
