VictoriaMetrics offers free open source monitoring

Open source time-series data monitoring player VictoriaMetrics at least calls itself a ‘player’ in its product statements.

In a world where 99%+ of technology vendors baulk at the idea of being called a player, a contender… or even for that matter a vendor, it’s refreshing to see the company label itself as such.

Perhaps this is so because the organisation’s latest ‘play’ is a free trial of its Enterprise solution. 

Designed to help solve an organisation’s monitoring and observability set ups, no matter the scale, VictoriaMetrics Enterprise is said to provide reliable and secure monitoring. 

The free trial of VictoriaMetrics Enterprise is for organisations with large data loads, for whom cost-efficient monitoring is mission-critical. It is suited for those looking for performance, scalability and security combined with technical support. 

VictoriaMetrics Enterprise combines the open source VictoriaMetrics, already downloaded over 300 million times with enterprise-grade features that include AI-powered anomaly detection, problem-solving services and guidance. 

Keepin’ the lights on

Roman Khavronenko, co-founder of VictoriaMetrics suggests that enterprises are struggling to cope with the drastic data expansion over recent years. To keep the lights on they need to collect, store, process and analyse massive datasets in real-time to extract the most valuable insights. 

“The scalability of VictoriaMetrics Enterprise allows businesses to monitor and analyse vast amounts of data without the need for expensive infrastructure upgrades, whilst simultaneously offering flexibility and customisation, eliminating the cost of vendor lock-in,” said Khavronenko

Upbeat about his firm’s technology and its ability to adopt, Khavronenko claims that migration from other existing solutions is easy.”

“When we started the Atlas Compute Cluster project more than 15 years ago, we were stuck with standard monitoring tools of the past, Nagios and Ganglia. We tested other available monitoring solutions like Prometheus but it never scaled well enough for us, then we discovered VictoriaMetrics. Acting as a drop-in replacement for Prometheus, we were able to set-up our initial test system within only 20 minutes. Two months in, we are about to replace our production monitoring and alerting infrastructure with VictoriaMetrics. With the Enterprise features, we will be able to keep our slightly down-sampled metrics for months, or years, instead of throwing everything away after two weeks as we do currently,” said Dr. Carsten Aulbert, Atlas Compute Cluster Team, Max Planck Institute for Gravitational Physics

VictoriaMetrics Enterprise solves problems around time series data for IT infrastructure, APM Kubernetes, IoT sensors, connected cars, telemetry, financial data, and various other types of enterprise-level workloads.
