Observability company New Relic recently formed a multi-year commercial partnership with Microsoft through Azure to help enterprises speed up cloud migration and multi-cloud drives. 

New Relic will be integrated natively to the Azure Portal as the default observability platform where Microsoft Azure customers can operate. Moreover, users can easily allocate their budget for observability and will be provided with more significant value products. 

Observability provides advantages to data engineers when meeting strict project deadlines, such as ensuring seamless application performance regardless of technological architecture and whether the service is supported via public, hybrid, or multi-cloud.  

Data observability minimizes time consumption on extra planning and monitoring. The integrated Azure and New Relic platform offers engineering teams a single pane of glass for monitoring all their workloads and is hosted with full-stack monitoring, debugging, and measuring tools. 

“We’re very excited to announce our new multi-year partnership with Microsoft, the leading provider of developer tools. Under this partnership, it will be easier for customers to integrate Microsoft and New Relic products and house telemetry quickly and affordably in one place, all while translating that data into actionable insights. It will also enable us to reach more developers across the Asia-Pacific region and accelerate our mission to help every engineer take a daily, data-driven approach to software engineering in which decisions are fuelled by data – not opinion,” said Stewart Cochrane, senior director for alliances & channels at New Relic Asia-Pacific and Japan.

Other features of the platform include: 

  • Telemetry Storage in Azure: Azure customers can operate New Relic’s core telemetry cloud on a chosen cloud in line with their digital transformation and multi-cloud strategy. 

  • Microsoft Committed Spend for New Relic: New Relic can be purchased using Azure commitment from the Azure Marketplace. This simplifies purchasing and contract management. 

  • Services Support: Deep integrations allow customers a quick and cost-effective way of landing their telemetry data in one place that is translatable to actionable insights. 

IDC predicts that by 2024, nearly 60% of enterprises will utilize "as a service" private clouds to support meeting critical multi-cloud needs. Various public cloud adoptions result in greater productivity and benefits to enterprises. Deloitte Access Economics expects the contribution of cloud services to the APAC economy will be USD160 billion from 2020 to 2024. 

New Relic’s regional customers include Tokopedia, Bangkok Bank, Zalora, True Digital, Afterpay, Xero, Unacademy, Airtasker, and ANZ Bank.
