Enhance Visibility with Our New Data Observability and Monitoring Service

Pink Floyd’s 1973 album, “The Dark Side of the Moon,” was iconic, especially for its cover artwork.

That image was worthy of deep contemplation while I lay on the floor listening to the music. And it’s been on my mind lately with the launch of Pure Storage’s new observability service.

Shining a Light on Observability Platforms

Observability platforms are hot right now. These platforms go beyond monitoring to give users operational visibility into their entire environment with all its scope and complexity. They look beyond individual events to system-level behavior to optimize the performance of the whole system. That capability depends on streams of real-time data from all levels of the environment.

And that’s why when I think about that iconic image from the album cover with respect to observability, I reverse it. The multiple streams of telemetry and real-time data are the slices of light as inputs instead of outputs. The data streams enter the prism of the observability platform and become a single stream of operational insight
