OpenTelemetry has emerged as a key open source tool in the observability space. And as organizations use it to manage more of their telemetry data, they also need to understand how to make it work across their various environments. This guide is focused on scaling the OpenTelemetry Collector deployment across various Linux hosts to function as both gateways and agents within your observability architecture.

Last week we introduced Grafana Alloy, our distribution of the OpenTelemetry Collector with built-in Prometheus pipelines and support for metrics, logs, traces, and profiles. We’re excited to see the community embrace Alloy, and we want to help them use and scale it as easily as possible. Many developers that need to deploy and manage software across several hosts turn to Ansible for its ease of use and versatility.

Three different businesses, one shared problem: SailPoint, Kushki, and Flexcity were all looking for a hosted solution to help them optimize their telemetry storage, gain more insights from their observability strategy, and keep costs manageable. But what they gained from migrating to Grafana Cloud and working with Grafana Labs was much more. “The engineering team is super sharp. They’re experts. This is the best of the best," said Omar Lopez, head of the observability team from SailPoint.

During GrafanaCON 2024, we came back together in person for the first time since 2019. Grafana Labs CEO and Co-founder Raj Dutt announced the winners of the Golden Grot community dashboard awards, and members of our engineering team made some exciting announcements around our open source observability projects including Loki 3.0 and Alloy. And Torkel Ödegaard, the creator of Grafana, unveiled what’s new in Grafana 11, with some demos.

Grafana provides a powerful and elegant way to create, explore, and share dashboards and data with your team and the world. Grafana is most commonly used for visualizing time series data for Internet infrastructure and application analytics but many use it in other domains including industrial sensors, home automation, weather, and process control.

Grafana has a robust plugin architecture built for extensibility. Visualize data from more than 40 data sources, including commercial databases and web vendors, and add new graph panels with rich data visualization options. There is built in support for many of the most popular time series data sources. It works with Graphite, Elasticsearch, Cloudwatch, Prometheus, InfluxDB and more.

Grafana Labs is the company behind Grafana, the leading open source software for visualizing time series data. Grafana Labs helps users get the most out of Grafana, enabling them to take control of their unified monitoring and avoid vendor lock in and the spiraling costs of closed solutions.
