How it works

The groundcover platform leverages the most advanced technology all across the stack to create a modern observability platform that cloud-native environments deserve.

eBPF instrumentation

The groundcover platform collects data all across your stack using the superpower of eBPF instrumentation.

Instantly monitor any environment with our proprietary eBPF sensor - gain visibility into your logs, metrics and traces with zero code changes, zero development cycles.

observability backend

Our architecture is tailor-made for modern cloud-native environments.

Backed by best-of-breed technologies like ClickHouse and VictoriaMetrics, it separates our cloud control plane from an in-cloud data plane, so that data never leaves your cloud environment.

This unique approach allows us to support any scale, cut network and storage costs, and keep your data under your full control.

Stream data processing

The groundcover platform is built to ingest huge amounts of data in real time.

Our data ingestion pipeline dramatically reduces the volumes 
of raw observability being stored, reducing all around costs.

It is based on a distributed stream processing engine that runs at 
the edge, smartly capturing raw data (like logs, traces and events) while creating complex insights (like metrics and context) inside each node where the data lies, without trucking it outside your cluster.

No data sampling
Unlimited cardinality and data depth

Cloud integrations

The groundcover platform was built to be an
all-in-one observability solution for cloud-native environments. It was built to ingest any data source 
directly into groundcover's in-cloud backend using any protocol supported by OpenTelemetry or Prometheus.

It supports any log stream from sources like Fluentd, Fluentbit, Logstash, or CloudWatch logs. Metrics can be 
ingested via Prometheus remote-write or directly from agents 
like StatsD and Telegraf. Traces can be ingested from any 
application instrumented with OpenTelemetry or Datadog’s SDK.
