Metrics in Grafana Cloud
- Centralized view to query and alert on multiple Prometheus instances
- Horizontally scalable and highly available
- Collects 100% of metrics (no sampling or aggregation)
- Fast global query performance
- 13+ months of long-term storage at full resolution
- Reduction in complexity and # of hours spent maintaining Prometheus
Centralized Alert Management
Cloud-based Prometheus alerting is the only way to do Prometheus alerts while using the Grafana Cloud agent, enabling you to consolidate your alerting into a central place, where local alerting is not possible.
Create, manage, and silence all of your alerts within one simple Grafana Cloud Alerting page. No separate interfaces, no cortex tool, and no complex config files necessary.
Configure alerts and notifications for logs, too. This is especially useful for third party systems that don’t export metrics.
