In the linked blog post, posted just today, Google Cloud has announced that they are modifying the pricing structure for Managed Service for Prometheus. The modifications include the addition of a new tier for those with massive utilization of the service, along with reduction in pricing for every tier available.
Monitoring and providing clear visibility into your systems is an essential element of DevOps and SRE workloads. Prometheus is a powerful tool to provide that, but can get challenging to maintain in a performant, resilient, consistent manner across widely distributed workloads. Google Cloud’s Managed Service for Prometheus takes the burden of managing and scaling your Prometheus datastore off of your teams so they can focus on using the data instead of on collecting and storing it.
Are you using Managed Service for Prometheus? How much of a savings will your team realize from this update? If you weren’t using it before, would you consider migrating to it now?
