What is Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus?

Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus (AMP) is in open preview. The preview is open to all AWS accounts and you do not need to request access. Features may be added or changed before announcing General Availability.

The preview currently supports the following Regions:

  • US East (Ohio)

  • US East (N. Virginia)

  • US West (Oregon)

  • Europe (Frankfurt)

  • Europe (Ireland)

Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus is a serverless, Prometheus-compatible monitoring service for container metrics that makes it easier to securely monitor container environments at scale. With AMP, you can use the same open-source Prometheus data model and query language that you use today to monitor the performance of your containerized workloads, and also enjoy improved scalability, availability, and security without having to manage the underlying infrastructure.

AMP automatically scales the ingestion, storage, and querying of operational metrics as workloads scale up and down. AMP integrates with AWS security services to enable fast and secure access to data.

AMP is designed to be highly available using multiple Availability Zone (Multi-AZ) deployments. Data ingested into a AMP workspace is replicated across three Availability Zones in the same Region.

AMP works with container clusters that run on Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service and self-managed Kubernetes environments.

With AMP, you use the same open-source Prometheus data model and PromQL query language that you use with Prometheus. Engineering teams can use PromQL to filter, aggregate, and alarm on metrics and quickly gain performance visibility without any code changes. AMP provides flexible query capabilities without the operational cost and complexity.

In the Preview release, retention duration for metrics is 150 days. Any metrics older than 150 days will automatically be deleted.
