Drift is a Conversational Marketing platform that supports millions of real-time conversations while maintaining 24/7 availability. To support its rapid growth Drift uses AWS with containerized microservices running on Amazon ECS, and Amazon RDS, Kinesis, SQS and S3 for storage and data processing. 

Drift now deploys SignalFx Microservices APM™ to address performance gaps and provide dependency-aware correlation. SignalFx is Drift’s all-in-one solution for predicting and preventing outages before they affect customers by debugging slow endpoints and identifying performance bottlenecks.

  • Contextual analytics-driven alerts fire in seconds after an issue — dramatically reducing MTTR
  • SFx Microservices APM™ enables teams to identify the most valuable areas of improvement with just a few clicks
  • Teams now solve for problems they couldn’t address before, or worse, didn’t even know they had

"SignalFx Microservices APM has become the defacto answer for our product teams. They get a complete picture of where performance bottlenecks exist, which would be impossible to identify with metrics or logs alone."
