Monitoring and Observability

Gain insights and improve the performance of your applications and infrastructure

Full-stack observability at AWS includes AWS-native, Application Performance Monitoring (APM), and open-source solutions, giving you the ability to understand what is happening across your technology stack at any time. AWS observability lets you collect, correlate, aggregate, and analyze telemetry in your network, infrastructure, and applications in the cloud, hybrid, or on-premises environments so you can gain insights into the behavior, performance, and health of your system. These insights help you detect, investigate, and remediate problems faster; and coupled with artificial intelligence and machine learning, proactively react, predict, and prevent problems.

AWS Summit SF 2022: Full-stack observability and application monitoring with AWS (56:13)


Understand application health

Know what is going on anywhere and everywhere in your system to provide the best possible experience for your end users. Detect problems quickly, investigate efficiently, and remediate as soon as possible to minimize disruption for your customers and reduce Mean Time to Resolution (MTTR).

Accelerate collaboration

When application issues occur, engage the correct stakeholder for any alerts from the beginning. IT and business teams are able to automate mundane and repetitive tasks while streamlining complex ones. Working together, IT and business teams can use insights from observability data to take a more user-centric approach and deliver exceptional end user experiences.

Reduce operational cost

Across hundreds of thousands of instances, a small percentage performance improvement in how much CPU an application uses can add up to millions of dollars in savings. Similarly, by using observability to understand and predict your future capacity needs, you can take advantage of the cost savings available from reserve and spot pricing.

Increase customer satisfaction

Elevate your customer experiences and business outcomes when you improve application, infrastructure, and network availability. Reduce downtimes and build fast, seamless digital experiences for your end customers. This allows both your internal teams and the end customers to operate efficiently to develop and deploy faster.
