Kausal: Transform observability.

Don’t lose precious minutes during incident response. Seamlessly switch between metrics, logs and traces, preserving context, saving time.

Kausal combines Prometheus monitoring, log aggregation and OpenTracing compatible distributed tracing into a hosted observability service for developers. It is targeted towards Kubernetes deployments but can easily be adapted to any system already using Prometheus.

Pricing

Prometheus

$30
per host per month
  • Long-term storage of Prometheus data
  • Grafana Integration
  • Intelligent Query Completion
  • 13 months metric retention
  • 8x5 support
1 host = 500 samples / second or 5000 active time series, whichever highest.

Developer

$40
per host per month
  • Long-term storage of Prometheus data
  • Grafana Integration
  • Intelligent Query Completion
  • 13 months metric retention
  • 8x5 support
Plus
  • Log aggregation
  • Distributed tracing
  • 14 day log and trace retention
1 host = 500 samples / second or 5000 active time series or 10GB logs, whichever highest.

Enterprise

POA
  • Long-term storage of Prometheus data
  • Grafana Integration
  • Intelligent Query Completion
  • Log aggregation
  • Distributed tracing
Plus
  • Up to unlimited retention
  • On premise deployment
  • 24x7 support
Example:

The Prometheus Node Exporter by default exports ~1000 time series; scraped at 15 second intervals, this would send 66 samples a second to us and use 1000 time series, per node. Therefore for a 50 node cluster you would pay $280/month.

Integration & Use Cases

Prometheus logo

Prometheus

Prometheus is a timeseries database with a powerful query language. Kausal’s metrics component acts as a remote storage facility for Prometheus data. This allows for long-term retention of timeseries.

Opentracing

OpenTracing is a set of APIs designed to abstract away the instrumentation of your application from the implementation of the distributed tracer. This allows projects to adopt distributed tracing instrumentation without having to choose a vendor, and enables new tracing implementations (like Kausal) to enter the world more easily!

OpenTracing logo
Kubernetes logo

Kubernetes

Prometheus and Kubernetes are like brother and sister: both inspired by Google’s technology, they are built around the concept of first-class labels and selectors. Kausal extends this to log aggregation and distributed tracing, making Kausal the first choice for observability on Kubernetes.
