Open source observability, meet data transformation: Grafana 7.0 promises to connect, unify, and visualize all your data
Grafana Labs sets the bar for open source observability with Grafana 7.0: more developer friendly, more data sources, data transformation, and growth in the cloud and on premise
Grafana Labs, makers of popular open-source observability platform Grafana, announced the general availability of Grafana 7.0. This comes only a few months after Grafana Labs scored $24 million in Series A funding to double down on open-source strategy and build what it dubs the world’s first open and composable observability platform.
Today’s release brings enhancements to simplify the development of custom plugins and increase the power, speed, and flexibility of visualization. Open source Grafana is among the world’s most popular dashboard solutions and boasts nearly 600,000 active installations and millions of dashboards in use across the globe.
Grafana Labs’ plans seem to be well underway. ZDNet connected with CEO Raj Dutt to discuss Grafana 7.0, and the road forward.
Like many of us at this time, Dutt is conducting business from home. The difference is, it sounds like Dutt’s business is going well, and Dutt seemed to have a genuine enthusiasm about it. Having seen what Grafana 7.0 brings to the table, and heard how Grafana Labs has been faring, we think the enthusiasm may be warranted.
