Microsoft announced that its Azure Managed Grafana service is now available in preview, approximately five months after the initial unveiling of plans for the offering in direct partnership with Grafana Labs.

Grafana, for the uninitiated, is an open source platform that allows some of the world’s largest companies to unify, query and visualize disparate telemetry data in a single dashboard. Grafana Labs, the main maintainer and developer of the open source project, offers a ton of business and “hosted” cloud services, support, and features in addition to Grafana.

Until now, Microsoft’s Azure customers who wanted to implement Grafana have generally used the open source product, which is a labor-intensive business as companies were responsible for managing everything themselves. While Grafana Labs’ own fully managed cloud service was also available through the Azure Marketplace, the new Azure Managed Grafana service includes a number of native integrations with Microsoft’s various cloud services, such as Azure Monitor, and comes with pre-built dashboards for Azure services .

Today’s launch follows Amazon’s Managed Service for AWS, which became generally available last September after nine months in preview. Judging by that launch timeline, perhaps we can expect the native Azure incarnation to officially launch in early 2023.
