Rackspace Metrics Early Access

Rackspace Metrics provides a single dashboard to collect and view all metrics you can collect. It aims to be the elastic storage service you need for your StatsD-Graphite-Grafana stack. Keep enjoying the insights from Grafana without the hidden cost of owning the data.


"Rackspace Metrics integrations are so simple we were able to set it up in less than a day with our existing StatsD implementation! Rackspace Metrics enables us to gain more insights into our application through more granular automation event metrics without the scalability and performance limitations of our old Graphite-Carbon system."

— Anthony Cervantes, Lead Software Developer, Rackspace Business Automation
