The Right Time to Right-Size Your Observability Process

The Right Time to Right-Size Your Observability Process


Every client we meet has been using multiple tools to satisfy their observability needs. We rarely find a greenfield opportunity. As their journey progresses, they have pointed out when the time is right to add ChaosSearch into the fold. There isn’t just one symptom; it’s usually a combination of things, including high log data volume, unpredictable costs, and ineffective results, to name a few. By the time we talk to clients in this state, the pain and frustration are incredibly high. We created a five-minute video to demonstrate how clients find themselves in this predicament:

But life gets much better after these clients add ChaosSearch into the mix. They get to keep all the dashboards that their SREs love, but they don’t suffer from rehydration woes, either the unpredictable costs or the time it takes to get the data ready for analysis. Plus, now they can do investigations across all of their log data, which means their insights are much better. Furthermore, because retention times across all their observability tools can be kept to a minimum the economics are optimal as well. With these cost savings, there is room to add ChaosSearch into the mix, and in addition to all benefits, you can still save 20-50% in overall TCO.
