Cloud Insights is a SaaS product designed to make it easier to monitor your complex hybrid environment with dashboards that answer key questions. Cloud Insights provides a unique Kubernetes Topology Visualization – providing a clear view into the Kubernetes environment.
As usage grows, it becomes harder to correlate application load with infrastructure utilization, especially for persistent storage.
Cloud Insights allows you to:
Through simple dynamic dashboards, you can see critical Kubernetes KPIs, such as scaling metrics and restart counts, and easily highlight pods and containers that are experiencing instability or resource constraints. You can identify issues at the cluster level, and simply zoom down to find containers in trouble.

*Available for environments of 500 managed units and larger
Pricing is based on the number of Managed Units (MUs) you wish to monitor.
An MU is defined as:
|Compute:||1 Managed Unit = 2 hosts (virtual or physical)|
|Storage:||1 Managed Unit = 4 TiB of unformatted external capacity in a physical or virtual storage
(doesn't account for the compute local storage)
For example, if you have 100 hosts and 100 TiB of storage, you would purchase (100/2) + (100/4) = 75 MUs.
