Next Steps for IBM Instana
An Instana License Offers Options for Cloud & On-Prem Installation
With your trial of Instana coming to an end, it’s time to consider if you want to continue utilizing the best observability tools available.
Instana allows both cloud tenants and on-prem installation. Instana’s cloud offering has tenants hosted in both AWS and GCP. The tenants undergo rigorous security testing, initially guided by GDPR but expanded for the consideration of other regulatory bodies.
In the rare case that a customer needs a fully air-gapped or isolated environment, DAI Source and IBM-Instana engineers will help the customer design the environment. That will include containers, repos, network firewall rules, storage, and application hosting requirements. Instana has created a simple installation process for customers to bring up their own environment including a full set of application dashboards, and data runtimes.
