Horizontally scalable, highly available, multi-tenant, long term storage for Prometheus.
Cortex Metrics Operator is a Kubernetes add-on that simplifies the deployment and management of the Cortex metrics platform, a scalable, multi-tenant, and horizontally scalable metrics store. Cortex Metrics Operator extends Kubernetes with custom resource definitions (CRDs) that allow users to deploy and manage the Cortex metrics platform as a Kubernetes object, making it easier to manage at scale.
The Cortex metrics platform is designed for observability, providing a way to collect, store, and query metrics from various sources. With Cortex Metrics Operator, users can easily deploy and manage the platform, which can help with observability by providing a scalable and resilient way to store and query metrics data.
Cortex Metrics Operator is particularly useful for managing large-scale Kubernetes environments with multiple clusters, as it simplifies the deployment and management of the Cortex metrics platform across all clusters. This can help with observability by providing a unified view of metrics across all clusters, making it easier to monitor and troubleshoot issues.
In addition to simplifying deployment and management, Cortex Metrics Operator also provides automatic scaling of the Cortex metrics platform, so that it can handle increasing amounts of metrics data as your application scales. This can help with observability by ensuring that metrics data is always available, even during high traffic periods.
Overall, Cortex Metrics Operator can help with observability by providing a scalable and resilient metrics platform that is easy to deploy and manage within Kubernetes. With Cortex Metrics Operator, you can ensure that your Kubernetes environment is always observable, providing you with the insight you need to troubleshoot issues and optimize your applications.
