This month, one of our key partners, Amazon Web Services (AWS), features Wavefront as a “hot” AWS-powered startup.  Thank you, AWS Team, for the accolades; we are excited to take our already strong partnership even further for even greater benefits to our mutual customers.

SaaS leaders know metrics monitoring is essential to keep their cloud and modern application environments running smoothly. Wavefront enables the DevOps functions at these companies where power, scale, performance, and reliability are essential to their business.

Founded in 2013 and based in Palo Alto, Wavefront is a cloud-based metrics monitoring and analytics platform that stores time series data at millions of points per second. They are able to detect any divergence from “normal” in hybrid and cloud infrastructures before anomalies ever happen. This is a critical service that companies like Lyft, Okta, Yammer, and Box are using to keep running smoothly. From data scientists to product managers, from startups to Fortune 500 companies, Wavefront offers a powerful query engine and a language designed for everyone.

With a pay-as-you-go model, Wavefront gives customers the flexibility to start with the necessary application size and scale up/down as needed. They also include enterprise-class support as part of their pricing at no extra cost. Take a look at their product demos to learn more about how Wavefront is helping their customers.

The Wavefront Application is hosted entirely on AWS, and runs its single-tenant instances and multi-tenant instances in the virtual private cloud (VPC) clusters within AWS. The application has deep, native integrations with CloudWatch and CloudTrail, which benefits many of its larger customers also using AWS. Wavefront uses AWS to solve a “software problem”, to operate, automate and monitor clouds using its own application. Most importantly, AWS allows Wavefront to focus on its core business – to build the best enterprise metric monitoring system in the world.
