Sysdig Intros Container Monitoring for On-Premises Use

By Paula Bernier
June 21, 2016

Sysdig today formally unveiled new container monitoring software for use within private or virtual private clouds. Several Fortune 500 enterprises have already adopted this solution, the company said.

“Containers have rapidly taken hold in enterprises as the next generation application and microservice infrastructure platform,” said Sysdig CEO and founder Loris Degioanni. “We’re happy to provide flexibility and greater security for organizations by providing our container-native monitoring technology as on-premises software, in addition to our existing cloud offering.”

ContainerVision is the name of the Sysdig technology that provides request-level visibility of applications running inside of containers, of containers, and of infrastructure. It works with a variety of container types. Sysdig’s on-premises software is available immediately.

Containers first became popular among platform-as-a-service providers, and Google was the first to use containers at scale, said Chris Crane, vice president of product at Sysdig, which in April announced $15 million in new funding. Because containers are lightweight, he noted, Google was able to eliminate entire data centers due to the efficiencies they created. Now enterprises, and communications and other tech companies, are getting interested in containers. However, what’s driving interest in containers in this case typically has to do with the fact that the portability of containers allows for continuous delivery and expedited time to market for DevOps efforts.

“Many enterprises have large existing data center investments,” said Apurva Dave, vice president of marketing at Sysdig. “A combination of these existing capital investments, security requirements, and compliance requirements are compelling enterprises to build internal platforms-as-a-service. Enterprises are demanding monitoring solutions that can run alongside their PaaS infrastructure, as opposed to running in the vendor’s cloud.”

As Red Hat Technology’s Gordon Haff wrote in a devsWorld article last week: “Containers provide lightweight and efficient application isolation and packages applications with any components they require to run; this avoids conflicts between apps that otherwise rely on key components of the underlying host operating system.”
