A Control Plane for Operations, SRE and Security Teams
Take back control of the complex interactions and emergent behaviors among your microservice applications.
Control the Chaos
How Glasnostic Works
Observing interactions instead of services provides essential visibility into complex, emerging behaviors.
A small set of key metrics serve as golden signals for interactions, yielding actionable insights.
Expressing policies on a per-metric basis gives operators fine-grained control over arbitrary service interactions.
Applying familiar, best-practice operational patterns results in predictable remediation.

Skip the YAML. Rule with Operational Patterns.
Glasnostic makes it easy to apply any number of operational patterns on-the-fly, on any container or cloud environment, with an intuitive UI designed for the teams who operate, instead of just develop, microservices architectures.
Prevent Systemic Failure
Insulate zones with bulkheads.
Exert backpressure against traffic spikes.
Control access with segmentation.
Circuit break slow requests.
Ensure quality of service.
Deploy with Confidence
Quarantine unproven deployments.
Introduce change with canaries.
Expose fragility with fault injection.
Test resilience with brownouts.
Define the blast radius of experiments.
Control Emergent Behaviors
When services start to combine and interact organically, the result is often a loss of visibility and control. Glasnostic allows operations teams to focus on “golden signals” to quickly detect problems and apply operational patterns like bulkheads, backpressure and circuit breaking on-the-fly to remediate in real-time. This enables operations teams to regain control over their sprawling services, meet SLAs and manage the user experience.
Prevent Cascading Failures
SRE teams need to address performance degradations and gray failures before they become systemic issues that impact availability. With Glasnostic, they can focus on “golden signals” to quickly detect distress in the service landscape and apply operational patterns like backpressure, circuit breaking and quarantining to remediate in real-time. Glasnostic makes it easier to achieve rapid MTTR and improve the resilience of services through the application of chaos engineering patterns.
Avert Security Breaches
Securing a service landscape requires more than merely encrypting communication. SecOps teams and CISO's know that increased developer productivity means more services, more chatter and more change—and thus more attack vectors. With Glasnostic, security teams can visualize evolving threats with their ephemeral actors, morphing identities and transient interactions by applying powerful segmentation and access control policies, despite the lack of a defensive perimeter.
