“With this release we are bringing together all of our experience running Weave Cloud, Prometheus and Kubernetes at scale on AWS,” said Alexis Richardson, CEO and co-founder of Weaveworks. “We are sharing all of Weaveworks’ critical infrastructure experiences and know-how with our customers. By integrating monitoring more deeply with deployment and management, we’re helping customers fix problems immediately and ship their development changes incredibly fast. The Enterprise Edition provides history and snapshots ensuring reliability and stability.”

With this latest release, Weaveworks has integrated a number of advanced Kubernetes features into Weave Cloud, including:

- Incident management with historical audit, instant query and comprehensive dashboards. A single place to diagnose problems fast and take immediate action. This includes new incident capture features, point in time comparison, and rapid analytic creation.

- Release automation and point in time rollback for Kubernetes and CI/CD pipelines. Repeatable and consistent deployment from laptop to a scalable production deployment across multiple clusters. Weave Cloud adds an entirely new UI and system for comparing present and past states with versions to solve this, making it very easy for any developer regardless which CI tools they use.

- Advanced Kubernetes troubleshooting including resource-container mapping. Root cause analysis – correlation between applications, the Kubernetes platform, and the underlying hosts and network infrastructure.
