Diagrid Makes Running Dapr in Production A Reality: Managing Thousands of Distributed Apps, Collecting Millions of Metrics Every Day

Diagrid, provider of tools and services to build secure, reliable and portable applications using open source Dapr, today announced that Diagrid Conductor Enterprise is now collecting 4.5 million metrics per day to manage more than 2,900 apps on 3,900 pods providing critical support to customers that include and Zeiss Vision Care.

Diagrid also announced its participation as a Featured Partner at the Microsoft Build event from May 21-23 in Seattle, which expects 4,000 in-person attendees, and over 200,000 online. The company will showcase the Conductor Enterprise service, which is designed for managing Dapr applications on Kubernetes, including Azure Kubernetes Service (AKS). Conductor Enterprise helps to visualize interactions between applications and infrastructure components, automates operations, troubleshoots issues, and provides best practice guidance with recommended actions for using Dapr.

Whether users are running Dapr with Kubernetes on their local machine, on-premises, or in the cloud, Conductor Enterprise serves as a single control center for all Dapr-enabled clusters. It not only ensures operational excellence, but also detects security, performance, and reliability issues, along with real-time insights into critical downtime events. Along with Conductor Enterprise, Diagrid also offers enterprise support for open source Dapr, providing customers with the highest level of operational confidence running their Dapr applications in production.

Last month, Diagrid introduced Conductor Free, a free-to-use version of the Conductor service with features focused on individual developers building and testing applications using Dapr on Kubernetes.

Dapr is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation incubating project that is maintained by Diagrid, Microsoft, Intel, Alibaba, and others. Ranked 12th largest of 163 CNCF projects, Dapr provides developers with APIs that abstract away the complexity of common challenges when building distributed applications. With Dapr taking care of the complex challenges such as service communication, pub/sub, state management, workflow, and secret management, developers can save time by avoiding the need to recreate repetitive code. Open source Dapr is used by tens of thousands of developers across thousands of organizations to develop distributed applications with 30% greater productivity, according to the recent community survey.

In April, the InfoQ Software Architecture and Design Trends Report listed Dapr among cutting-edge technologies that also included large language models (LLMs) and OpenTelemetry.
