    Why Splunk Observability Cloud

    Unlike New Relic, Splunk Observability Cloud is created for modern, cloud-native environments and has a simple pricing structure. We offer a proven platform that helps teams deliver better results faster. New Relic’s limited ability to scale, use of partial data and only basic AI capabilities slow down your pace of innovation, complicates the troubleshooting process, misses issues and creates organizational silos.

    Legacy monitoring tools like New Relic were designed for static, heavy, monolithic applications running on-prem. Splunk Observability Cloud, on the other hand, is designed to support modern microservices-based apps, single page applications and cloud-native environments.
