Overall Satisfaction with CoScale

In our company, throughout the last few months, we have started a lot of dockerized projects that are deployed, scaled, and managed using Kubernetes container orchestration platform. Having said that, for monitoring these projects we are using CoScale since it is designed specifically to monitor container and microservices environments.
  • Visualizes Kubernetes web performance in context.
  • Automatically creates a number of default, but very informative dashboards.
  • It is missing a summary view of resource consumption by all instances of a given service.
  • Takes an old school approach to save dashboard changes with a button.
  • Information provided by CoScale accelerates problem solving for us.
  • Significantly lowers the time to identify any issues with our container environment.
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.
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.
