7 reviewers had the following to say about Hosted Graphite's pricing:
Anyone who has ever need to graph system or business metrics has probably heard of graphite and anyone trying to configure it knows the pain of maintaining a complex piece of software such as graphite and all the moving parts around it. Hosted graphite is a great metrics SAAS product based on graphite but also provides additional tools such as statsd and grafana integrated together and at a price point which makes it cheaper than the same amount of amazon instances required to handle the load we're putting on it - not to talk about time . Dave and his team are amazing at being transparent and communicative with us throughout any issue and even include detailed post-mortems for bigger events - something I would never expect from larger companies. The great service along with a great price makes us an extremely happy user and I would highly recommend to anyone in need of graphite. Keep up the good work guys!
Thanks for the kind words Omri.
Graphite is a great tool, that helps you measure both business KPIs and application performance over time. Hostedgraphite provides you a great hosting service. Our servers hosted in AWS cloud. We did the math: In order to meet graphite system requirements, it would be cheaper to use the hostedgraphite service. Needless to say, it saved us the need to deploy graphite, which is a huge headache. In addition, they helped us understanding some of the un-clear bahaviors of graphite. They were responsive to our support cases. I definitely recommend every SaaS application to use graphite, and every graphite user to use the hosted solution provided by hostedgraphite.
Most valuable thing about HG is their use of OSS. You don't need vendor agent to collect metrics, you just use statsd (but you can anything that can send to Graphite). They are using also Grafana dashboard (which is best dashboarding so far), so you can import/export pre-made dashboards. The use of OSS means that you can easily migrate from/to HG, just change your statsd collector URL and that's it. You can also host Grafana or alternative dashboarding yourself, because you have access to their Graphite endpoint. They also offer help to migrate your historical data to their service. In the era of virtualization, per host pricing model just does not work. In HG you pay per metric (packs) and the value/price is very good. Their support is blazing fast and friendly. There are a few downsides for me so far: - there is no established alerting yet (currently in beta), however you can attach external altering that works with Graphite, you know, you have access to their Graphite endpoint. - in the era of devops, limitation of team members does not work well, I prefer all of my team members to have access to the monitoring - having example/pre-baked dashboards would be very very helpful I evaluated at least 10 alternative services before choosing HG, they best matched my needs.
For several projects I have tried, with various levels of success, setting up a complete Graphite installation. But with all the weird port numbers, odd dependencies, obscure programs and commands, something always breaks. Plus Graphite has a lot of features left for user customization and you never know exactly what the perfect settings are. Hosted Graphite is awesome because I was up and running in less 5 minutes. Not the cheapest service in the world, but completely worth the fact that I've never had to care about setting Graphite up or managing it.
We were in search of application monitoring platform. We had experience with server monitoring, but it was not detailed enough by definition, because result was like "something happened", not helping in real troubleshooting. We tried a few options, some were not functional, some were hard to integrate and some were simply overpriced, and settled with Hosted Graphite. In about of one day we started collecting all interesting metrics. It's plug'n'play way of on-boarding, diamond-based data collection is really how it should be done. You just start to collect data, use one of many ready to use libraries for language your application is written in. Billing model is flexible, you can collect ten metrics from one application or one metric for ten applications for the same price. Support is just awesome, very responsive. Overall, to be honest, product is much better we'd ever create in-house, even with insane budget. but what is more important Hosted Graphite listens to users, so we see how service involves based on our feedback.
Thanks for your kind words Roman.
I've personally setup and maintained many instances of Graphite and other metrics systems and am fully aware of how complicated it can be to maintain such a critical and high throughput system. These guys really abstract the magic and provide an absolutely beautiful and easy to use interface to metrics. Their customer service is top notch and the turn around on support tickets is nearly always within the same day. Absolutely no complaints! Finally and probably the most important from the business perspective is that running your own system with this availability and feature set would cost your considerably more than their monthly fees. I don't know how they do it, but thanks!
Hosted Graphite saves us having to host an entire tier of our stack. We can install a simple StatsD listener on each machine and throw stats at Hosted Graphite all day long. Add in hosted Graphana dashboards, sharable Graphana URLs, expiring statistics for use in auto-scaled/virtual environments like AWS and Rackspace, redundant storage, and near-zero-work configuration, and we save not only having to have institutional knowledge for hosting Graphite and Graphana (and their associated DB servers like ElastiCache) but almost the entire cost of doing so. Using Hosted Graphite seemed like a no-brainer, and turns out it absolutely was. They recently added in integrations with AWS CloudWatch and Logentries, which made the service even more useful to us. I can't recommend it enough, especially if you have a small ops team and setting up stats and graphing seems like a monumental task.
- Hosted Graphite (seriously) - Hosted StatsD (if you don't want to run it locally) - Hosted Graphana dashboards - Redundant storage - Expiring stats for auto-scaled environments - AWS CloudWatch integration - Logentries integration - Not having to host and run any of this on our own
