SUSE acquires Dutch observability platform StackState

SUSE has acquired Dutch company StackState, a platform for monitoring and analyzing cloud-native applications. The full stack observability platform will be integrated into SUSE’s Rancher Prime container management platform.

According to SUSE, traditional monitoring tools have limitations when deployed to observe containerized cloud environments. The company calls StackState a necessary and valuable addition for Rancher Prime users, enabling high-performance end-to-end observability under one roof.

Users now have one unified view for monitoring cloud-native applications within Rancher Prime. This ranges from data centers and the cloud to edge computing environments. SUSE says that integrating StackState for customers should ultimately lead to increased capabilities for cost control, automated troubleshooting and monitoring of industrial IoT deployments.

Making StackState open-source

In addition, SUSE promises to make StackState open source soon. By doing so, SUSE hopes to widen the platform’s adoption and development within the open source community.

“As IT environments become more complex, our Rancher Prime customers need end-to-end observability of their entire stack”, said Dirk-Peter van Leeuwen, CEO of SUSE. “StackState’s comprehensive infrastructure and application monitoring capabilities and technical talent are the perfect complement to Rancher Prime and sets up SUSE’s container management solutions to best serve our customers on their modernization journey.”

“We offer unparalleled observability to customers running mission critical workloads in complex environments”, added StackState CEO Andreas Prins. “SUSE’s Rancher Prime is a great fit for our technology and our team – and I’m looking forward to seeing what we have built reach its full potential.”
