New Relic has announced the acquisition of the Belgian company CoScale and its employees. New Relic makes software analytics, CoScale has experience in monitoring Kubernetes environments. The intention is that the company’s support for Kubernetes will be expanded with the acquisition, reports ZDNet.

The takeover accelerates the roadmap for the company’s product. It should also support its strategy for pushing container and microservices-based software architectures. In addition, the company aims to serve DevOps teams that want to use containers better.

“With our new team members and technology, we are going to invest even more in monitoring workloads running on Kubernetes, which has become the standard for orchestrating containerized applications,” says CoScale in a statement. “New Relic already monitors Kubernetes, and we are confident that our new team members will help us improve our capabilities in these areas.”

“The visions of New Relic and CoScale are very compatible, so our team is excited to join New Relic and continue our goal to help companies innovate faster by giving them insight into the performance of their modern architectures,” said Stijn Polfliet, CEO of CoScale.

New features

The intention is that the possibilities of CoScale in new features will be placed over the entire New Relic platform. This specifically concerns New Relic Infrastructure. In addition, a stronger product is needed to monitor containers and Kubernetes.

The main members of the CoScale team, including its co-founders, become part of New Relic’s European Development Center in Barcelona.
