Migrate from monolith to microservices

"Lightstep is the future of monioring and was instrumental in our move to microservices.

Vice President of Engineering

Improve your migration

Whether you’re just starting to decompose a monolith or looking to make your distributed system more resilient to failure, we’re here to help you along your path to microservices.

Just getting started

Identify easy wins, create success criteria, and test and monitor a limited number of distributed services.

Decomposing your monolith

Connect with existing tools, instrument new services, share learnings across the org, and measure ROI.

Optimizing a distributed system

Optimize system performance, enhance SLI alerting, improve RCA and post-mortem processes.

Monolothic to microservices challenges

Faster deployments. More independent teams. Increased resilience to failures. Microservices offer many benefits, but they pose unique challenges that require new solutions.

Decreased visibility into system performance

Satellite Architecture analyzes 100% of unsampled transaction data from virtually any source — offering end-to-end visibility into any trace, operation, or service.

Lack of clarity around service dependencies

See upstream and downstream dependencies — from mobile to backend — with easy-to-understand, dynamic visualizations of your entire system.

More complex root cause analyses require additional engineering cycles

Lightstep produces root cause insights almost immediately — aggregating and analyzing thousands of traces in seconds — to identify which signals best explain the regression in your service.

Difficulty communicating actionable insights across teams

Detailed views of performance for any process, operation, or service are automatically captured, recorded, and available to share via a unique url.

New workflows to manage an increased number and granularity of signals

Lightstep provides simple workflows for distributed systems. Through Workflow Links you have an immediate, single-click path to the relevant logs, service owners, or external tools needed to better understand or resolve a performance issue.

Get the most out of your migration

Know which performance improvements actually make a difference

Lightstep automatically highlights the critical path, allowing you to focus on performance optimizations that will improve the experience of your customers and the services that depend on your team.

Ensure visibility into your entire system

Give your team the tools — and context — needed to navigate a multilayered microservices architecture. Move seamlessly from a high-level view of your dependencies to specific traces, operations, or other signals contributing to issues in production.

Manage distributed systems at scale

Lightstep is purpose-built for complex systems. Individual customers generate as many as half a trillion spans in a 24-hour period — all without incurring additional costs. Unlike other monitoring solutions, Lightstep does not charge on host, ingress, or any amount of data required by your organization as it grows.
