Grafana Labs, the company behind the open source project Grafana, the world’s most ubiquitous open and composable operational dashboards, announced a new strategic partnership with Alibaba Cloud, the digital technology and intelligence backbone of Alibaba Group.
Through the partnership, the companies are introducing Grafana on Alibaba Cloud, a fully managed data visualization service that enables customers to instantly query and visualize operational metrics from various data sources.
Grafana Labs Cofounder and CEO Raj Dutt said the company’s goal is to make sure Grafana’s dashboarding capabilities are available however it makes the most sense for our users — whether that’s on their own infrastructure or in a public cloud platform like Alibaba Cloud.
“Partnering with public cloud platforms like Alibaba Cloud further cements Grafana as the best-in-class solution for open source visualizations, and gives Alibaba’s millions of cloud users instant access to dashboarding capabilities in a way that is uniquely integrated with Alibaba Cloud and easier to get started than self-hosting, while opening the door to a brand new market for Grafana Labs,” said Raj Dutt.
Alibaba Cloud Intelligence Infrastructure Products Head Partner of Alibaba Group Jiangwei Jiang said Alibaba Cloud hopes that the company’s cooperation with Grafana Labs can let Alibaba Cloud users worldwide leverage Grafana products more conveniently and efficiently so that they can focus on business efficiency by reducing the need for strenuous operations and maintenance activities.
“While putting more efforts into open source fields, Alibaba Cloud will continue to cooperate with more open source vendors to launch complete cloud native products and solutions, providing new momentum for enterprise digital innovation,” said Jiangwei Jiang.
