Challenge

MLB is a deceptively complex technology company that not only broadcasts and live-streams ball games but also real-time statistics for sports betting and fantasy league baseball. Over time, monitoring systems multiplied and costs began to escalate significantly as vendors increased pricing. MLB was also moving quickly to Kubernetes as well as looking to consolidate its vendors.

Solution

MLB has consolidated all of its monitoring on the Circonus platform including application, infrastructure, network, video, and Kubernetes monitoring. MLB is using Circonus’ histograms to monitor at the service level, which allows them to drill down and perform root cause analysis to quickly resolve problems, and they are using Circonus’ Kubernetes monitoring to identify and resolve cluster performance and health issues.

Results

  • MLB replaced 7 different monitoring systems and was able to reduce their annual monitoring spend by 66%.
  • Circonus is now the monitoring system of record for MLB, streamlining operations and creating one source of truth from which to base decisions. Eliminated Datadog, New Relic, Icinga, Prometheus among others.
  • By monitoring service levels across all of its APIs (billions of requests), MLB ensures it delivers an exceptional real-time entertainment experience for over 100 million fans and users globally.
