The partnership will increase visibility into workloads running on Google Compute Engine.

Google Cloud customers can now use OpenTelemetry logs and metrics collection with support from Google Cloud and observIQ to unify observability data from Google Cloud, on premise data centers, and other cloud environments. OpenTelemetry is a collection of open source telemetry tools, APIs, and SDKs. observIQ is a major contributor, developing high performance log and metric collection technology that can be easily configured and scaled to fit the monitoring needs of customers.

Many Google Cloud customers are already using OpenTelemetry to achieve significant cost savings to replace legacy telemetry and observability technologies. observIQ will integrate over 100 OpenTelemetry receivers into Google Ops Agent making it possible to collect logs and metrics for all of the major technologies customers wish to observe. Google Ops Agent is the primary agent for collecting telemetry from Compute Engine instances, while OpenTelemetry provides support for many other platforms. observIQ will also integrate other analysis layer components such as dashboards and alerts to provide customers with a true out-of-the-box observability experience.
