BindPlane OP Enterprise Reaches GA

by observIQ Media on
November 3, 2022

Today we’re excited to announce that BindPlane OP Enterprise is now generally available. With single-sign-on support for LDAP/AD authentication and 24/7 customer support from one of the largest contributors to OpenTelemetry, BindPlane OP is now ready for your enterprise environment. 

We introduced BindPlane OP in June with the mission to build an open source observability pipeline that makes it easy to simplify and standardize your telemetry stack, while helping you control costs with powerful data reduction tools. And it’s been clear that we’re on to something, as the early use and enthusiasm we’ve seen has continued to surpass our expectations.              

Working with many of you that are deploying BindPlane OP into large enterprise environments, we’ve consistently heard that you need the following in order to move BindPlane OP to production: 

  1. The security features required to deploy in highly regulated environments
  2. Tools to scale BindPlane OP across your enterprise
  3. Support from observability and OpenTelemetry experts

With BindPlane OP Enterprise that is exactly what we’re delivering. While we’re starting with authentication and best-in-class support, you can expect RBAC, configuration staging, and audit reporting to quickly follow. 

To get started with BindPlane OP Enterprise, reach out to us on Slack or email sales@observiq.com

What else is new in BindPlane OP? 

While we’re excited to introduce BindPlane OP Enterprise, version 1.4.0 also brings a couple of useful new features to the open source edition. 

Data Flow Topology

For the first time, Data Flow Topology gives you complete visibility into your pipelines. At a glance you can see which configurations are sending data to which destinations, and most importantly how much data they’re sending. 

If you see a problem area, simply drill into the configuration to find the source, add a processor into the pipeline to re-route or reduce the data, and watch the impact reflected in the interface. Grab the latest release from our repo

Pause/Resume Telemetry 

Sometimes you just need to stop sending data as quickly as possible. Perhaps you’ve noticed PII being sent to a destination it shouldn’t be, or maybe you just need to rework your configuration. 

Now when you’re editing a source or destination you’ll find a pause/resume button that lets you instantly stop or start the flow of data.

We’re eager to build the best open source observability pipeline in the world, so please reach out and let us know what you’d like to see on the roadmap. Or better yet, help us build exactly the observability pipeline you want by contributing to the project.
