The innovation is one of a series of new products announced at the company’s developer conference.

New Relic announced a series of new product innovations and community initiatives at its annual developer conference, FutureStack 2021.

The new offerings aim to help engineers make observability a data-driven approach to how they plan, build, deploy and run software, the company said.

New Relic launched its new Kubernetes experience, powered by Auto-Telemetry with Pixie, which integrates with New Relic One to deliver instant Kubernetes observability without requiring users to update code or sample data.

Additional highlights include enhancements to New Relic’s error tracking, network monitoring and programmability capabilities, as well as two new community offerings to bring the power of New Relic Full-Stack Observability to more engineers: New Relic for Startups and New Relic Student Edition.

“Now more than ever, the world relies on digital services and their underlying software to connect with family, friends and colleagues remotely,” said Bill Staples, CEO-elect at New Relic.

“Our mission is to make observability a daily practice for millions of engineers by putting the power of telemetry data in their hands at every stage of the software lifecycle, so they can deliver great digital experiences to their customers,” he added.

Auto-Telemetry with Pixie delivers “instant Kubernetes observability”

Integrating Pixie into New Relic’s Kubernetes solution can remove some of the largest barriers to Kubernetes observability, according to New Relic. Chief among these hurdles is the time and expertise required to manually instrument application code.

Auto-Telemetry with Pixie gives engineers visibility into developers’ Kubernetes clusters and workloads instantly without installing language agents. Available throughout the New Relic One platform, Pixie data enables engineers to debug faster than ever before.

It also empowers engineers to observe everything on-cluster without sampling. It then uses AI/ML models to send the most relevant subset of that data to New Relic’s Telemetry Data Platform for correlation with other services.

Today’s news follows New Relic’s recent announcement that it is in the process of contributing Pixie Open Source as a project to the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) under an Apache 2.0 license, as part of New Relic’s commitment to making observability open for everyone. New Relic also recently announced the expansion of its existing relationship with Amazon Web Services (AWS) to provide its Pixie observability solution on AWS.
