Many offerings tout observability. How is Honeycomb different? We have defined what Observability is and have built a tool to help modern Dev, DevOps and Site Reliability Engineering teams operate more efficiently. Because it’s all about delivering high quality code, maintaining reliability and getting precious time back.
We made a critical decision to provide a seamless, current view of your system (from logs to events and traces) in a single data store, regardless of how complex your architecture is. This means you no longer have to toil with multiple tools or stitched-together solutions – burning time as you address issues affecting users.
We also believe strongly that optimizing systems and debugging should not be difficult and draining, freeing up more time to ship new code. Our approach emphasizes efficiency and knowledge sharing, thereby elevating everyone’s game and ultimately business outcomes.
