Microsoft has announced that its Azure-managed Grafana service is now available in the preview, almost five months after announcing the first plan to offer it in a direct partnership with Grafana Labs.
Graphna, for Uninitiated, is an open source platform that helps some of the world’s largest companies integrate, query and visualize different telemetry data into a single dashboard. Grafana Labs, the main maintainer and developer of the open source project, provides a number of enterprise and “hosted” cloud services, support and features on top of Grafana.
Until now, Microsoft’s Azure customers who wanted to deploy Grafna would typically use an open source product, which is a resource-intensive endeavor because the companies were responsible for managing everything themselves. While Grafana Labs’ own full-powered cloud service was also available through Azure Marketplace, the new Azure Managed Graph service includes a set of local integrations with various Microsoft cloud services, such as Azure Monitor, and ships with pre-built dashboards for Azure services. .
Today’s start follows Amazon’s managed service for AWS which hit general availability last September after a nine-month preview. Judging by that launch timeline, we can probably expect the local Azure Avatar to be officially launched in early 2023.
