New Relic has acquired CoScale to boost the power and reach of its software analytics platform.
A leader in providing deep performance analytics for software, New Relic allows enterprises to view and analyze large amounts of data and gain actionable insights in real-time. Whereas, CoScale is a Belgium startup with deep experience in monitoring container, microservices and Kubernetes environments.
With acquisition, New Relic will integrate CoScale’s capabilities and experience into New Relic Platform and New Relic Infrastructure. This will accelerate New Relic’s capabilities, so that the software analyst leader can help enterprises adopt software architectures using containers and microservices.
The acquisition will open up new opportunities for New Relic as more and more companies are running containerized applications in production. In December, Gartner had revealed that 78% of enterprises will run containers in production in next two years, compared to only 19% at that time.
“We look forward to the team members’ talent, experience, and expertise with monitoring modern software architectures—particularly containers, microservices, and Kubernetes—optimized for large and dynamic production environments. They’ll be a great complement to the teams working on New Relic Infrastructure,” wrote Ramon Guiu, Director of Product Management for New Relic Infrastructure, in a blog post.
Individually, CoScale provides container-native monitoring for Docker, Kubernetes, and OpenShift. On the other hand, New Relic already monitors Google Kubernetes Engine (GKE), Amazon Elastic Container Service for Kubernetes (EKS), Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS), and Red Hat OpenShift.
Integrated solutions will further enable New Relic to help DevOps teams build stronger container and Kubernetes monitoring products.
“The visions of New Relic and CoScale are remarkably well aligned, so our team is excited that we get to join New Relic and continue on our journey of helping companies innovate faster by providing them visibility into the performance of their modern architectures,” said Stijn Polfliet, CoScale CEO.
“Fred and I feel like this is such an exciting space and time to be in this market, and we’re thrilled to be teaming up with the amazing team at New Relic, the leader in monitoring modern applications and infrastructure.”
Key team members of CoScale, including co-founders Stijn Polfliet and Frederick Ryckbosch, will join New Relic and relocate to European Development Center in Barcelona.
