Google Stackdriver Review

Good technical support and supports multi-cloud integration

What is our primary use case?

We have some projects on the Google Cloud Platform and we are looking into how we can use Stackdriver to monitor our workloads.

What is most valuable?

The most valuable feature is the multi-cloud integration, where there is support for both GCP and AWS. 

What needs improvement?

The APM functionality needs to be improved.

It is difficult to estimate in advance how much something is going to cost. Often, you don't know how much it costs until you are finished.

For how long have I used the solution?

We have been working with Stackdriver for less than one year.

What do I think about the stability of the solution?

My impression is that this is a stable solution because we have only had a few minor problems.

What do I think about the scalability of the solution?

Stackdriver is very scalable.

How are customer service and technical support?

The technical support is good and I found them to be very helpful.

How was the initial setup?

The implementation involves setting up the correct metrics, which is something that needs to be properly researched and tested.

What's my experience with pricing, setup cost, and licensing?

The cost of using Stackdriver depends on usage.

What other advice do I have?

My advice to anybody who is implementing Google Stackdriver is to explore what metrics they want to use.

I would rate this solution an eight out of ten.

Which deployment model are you using for this solution?

Public Cloud

If public cloud, private cloud, or hybrid cloud, which cloud provider do you use?
