Sensu Go Debuts
Go is a scalable, powerful and user-centric
monitoring event pipeline, designed to
improve visibility and streamline workflows
for enterprises. Sensu empowers businesses
to gain deep visibility into their
infrastructure, from Kubernetes to bare
metal, providing a single source of truth
among application and infrastructure
New, versioned API - Redesigned to be future-forward and establish a stable API contract, the new API is powerful enough to configure the entire Sensu Go instance and built to enable users who want to extend Sensu capabilities.
Server and agent assets - Sensu Go now provides direct support for downloading and installing server plugins and agent plugins with no additional tooling; i.e., no dependency on configuration management or custom Docker images.
Namespaces and RBAC - Sensu Go introduces the ability to configure unique namespaces and their resources in a shared environment, with built-in role-based access controls (RBAC) for granular management of who gets access to what.
ServiceNow integration (enterprise only) - ServiceNow is widely used by enterprises and heavily used by operators. The ServiceNow handler is a Sensu event handler that creates or updates ServiceNow configuration items, incidents and events.
Jira integration (enterprise only) - Jira is Atlassian’s issue and project tracking software and another enterprise solution request by the Sensu community. The Jira handler, also a Sensu event handler, creates and updates Jira issues.
Commercial support for Sensu Go - Sensu offers varying degrees of support depending on business size and needs.
“At NCR, it’s critical that we operate at the speed that restaurants require, so we needed a monitoring solution that would empower us to move as fast as needed,” said John Kerry, software developer with point-of-sale system provider NCR. “With Sensu Go, we have the power to build a pipeline that enables restaurants to quickly (and safely) gain intelligence into their systems. That, coupled with the fact that it’s designed with Kubernetes in mind, makes Sensu Go a perfect complement to our workflows.”
