It’s official, we’ve made it simpler than ever to get full visibility into the most detailed behaviors of your Amazon Web Services (AWS) environments. Now, if you build, deploy, or maintain apps and critical workloads on AWS, we are offering our Standard Pay-As-You-Go plan with our industry-leading free tier that you can subscribe to directly from the AWS Marketplace.

Get started monitoring and troubleshooting in minutes with integrations and auto-instrumentation options across most AWS services, including Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS), AWS Lambda, Amazon Kinesis, Amazon CloudWatch, Amazon API Gateway, AWS Fargate, and much more.

Read the press release here.

Our Standard plan—now on AWS Marketplace—includes:

  • Perpetually free access: 100 GB/month of free data ingest. One free full-access user. Unlimited free basic users. Only pay for what you use beyond 100 GB/month.
  • One data platform for all metrics, events, logs, and traces: Petabyte scale. Millisecond speed. Pennies per gigabyte (beyond the free tier).
  • The ability to visualize, analyze, and troubleshoot your AWS environment: With this direct connection to New Relic, you’ll be prepared to:
    • Quickly integrate AWS services: Amazon Relational Database Service, Amazon Simple Storage Service, Amazon EKS, Amazon Elastic Container Service, Lambda, and more
    • Gain visibility into your hybrid environments to support your AWS cloud migration
    • Efficiently optimize your Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud instances and other AWS services
    • Immediately troubleshoot and modernize applications deployed to the AWS cloud
    • Improve your customer experience by correlating Amazon CloudFront and multi-region metrics

We recently updated our pricing so that you don’t have to limit instrumentation to a small subset of systems, calculate and track different costs for monitoring capabilities, or continue the outdated practice of counting hosts after you’ve upgraded to modern architectures with automated orchestration tools.

As your applications continue to increase in complexity, New Relic enables you to monitor and troubleshoot your apps and workloads running on AWS alongside the rest of your architecture—all in one place.

  • Stream logs using Kinesis Data Firehose: You can now send logs to New Relic using Amazon Kinesis Data Firehose, which streams data in real time to a variety of destinations, including the New Relic platform. Learn how to create and configure a data delivery stream to ingest CloudWatch logs and forward them to New Relic.
