Gain visibility into your Kubernetes application container platform

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. The platform provides complete application lifecycle management functionality and DevOps tooling. Out of the box, Dynatrace provides full monitoring insights into the hosts and applications you deploy with Kubernetes, including:

Outline service response times and requests

See the full picture of your environment in real-time

Dynatrace automatically discovers all containers running on Kubernetes and presents you with a real-time view of all the connections between your containerized processes, hosts, and cloud instances. Dynatrace provides deep insights into your dynamic deployment environment and ensures that everything works as designed.

Architecture of deployed microservices in Docker

Axel Springer Ideas Engineering GmbH

“Dynatrace is the best tool for monitoring our fully Dockerized application stack. Out of the box, Dynatrace offered deep insights into our hosts, Docker containers, and the services they provide. Through its integrated real user monitoring capabilities, Dynatrace provides continuous visibility into application health, from our end users’ perspective.”

Discover service dependencies and streamline container co-location

Optimize the configuration of Kubernetes applications with new insights into cross-service communication. Dynatrace identifies related containers and automatically visualizes all dependencies throughout your entire application environment.

Verify available resources

Understand the cause of failing microservices

Highly distributed applications produce extensively distributed log files. When dealing with such applications, log analytics and alerting are often not enough on their own to explain the root causes of detected problems. This is why Dynatrace provides you with the ability to replay and understand failures throughout your Kubernetes clusters.

What is Kubernetes?

Kubernetes is an open-source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications.

Kubernetes runs on a multitude of providers, such as AWS, GCE and Azure and is the underlying platform of many commercially successful products, such as OpenShift by Red Hat, Google Container Engine and Deis Workflow.
