CoScale

CoScale is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments managed by Kubernetes ecosystem.

It is perfectly suited for keeping all your developers up-to-date with the latest best practices. In the case of a really huge system, the possibility to identify the most critical line of script that needs to be fixed for the most severe production issues is a huge benefit. It will not be that useful for smaller projects with just a few people in the project team.

We have been working with CoScale for quite some time now, and we have not encountered too many problems really. The majority of minor issues we ran into were quickly solved by reaching out to technical community forums. When it comes to the remaining ones, we were able to solve those efficiently with assistance from the supporting team of technical experts.

We cannot have any complaints regarding support provided for our deployments by germain CRT. We had some worries that with such big ecosystems of plugins issues are imminent, but it really only takes a few minutes for you to add a new plugin and germain CRT support team is happy to do it for you.

Alternatives Considered

CoScale

CoScale was developed as a next-generation monitoring and alerting system for Kubernetes container orchestration engine, and it largely delivers what was promised by leveraging direct integration into the orchestration engine itself. Compared to other vendors, CoScale's in-container monitoring allows even to monitor the services running within the containers, which makes a huge difference for us.

germain CRT has a richer set of features when compared with its competition. The pricing policy of germain CRT works better for our type of products. The free trial allowed us to thoroughly evaluate if required features can be found and integrated to our advantage. Availability of both on-premise and cloud deployments is very important for us and not every vendor has it.
