Based in Stockholm Grafana Labsthe maker of open-source data visualization tools, today kicked off its 10th anniversary with the launch of Grafana v10, the first major update to its platform in nearly two years.

Announced at the company’s annual GrafanaCON conference, the new release focuses on improving the developer experience with new ways to correlate and visualize data, ultimately easily sharing those dashboards with external stakeholders.

“Grafana 10 is truly the culmination of work that has been going on for over a year, with many features previously released in preview now maturing to be fully documented, supported and enabled by default. There are a lot of features here, but the main goals were to make it easier to: get started with Grafana; share your dashboards with the world; correlate your data to resolve incidents faster; and using automation to build more interactive, consistent dashboards,” Mitch Seaman, product director at Grafana Labs, told VentureBeat ahead of GrafanaCON.

As part of its 10th anniversary celebrations, Grafana Labs is also hosting GrafanaCON gatherings for local communities in more than 20 cities around the world, including Atlanta, Austin, Chicago, New York City, Seattle, and San Francisco.

Currently, Grafana has 20 million users with plug-ins for more than 150 data sources, both open-source and commercial. According to the company Observability study 2023, 38% of business users said they have more than 7 data sources configured in Grafana. Some of the company’s clients include Salesforce, JP Morgan Chase, Citigroup, and Bloomberg.

What does Grafana 10 bring to the table?

With the release of version 10, Grafana provides users with an improved user experience with a more refined onboarding process (better prompts, guided workflows, and updated UI resource selectors) to get started, as well as three new visualization panels to include in dashboards: Canvas, Trend, and Data grid.

“The Canvas panel (now generally available) allows you to create incredibly relatable and custom visualizations using live data. Some interesting examples are visualizing the status of factory equipment, over a diagram of the data itself, or visualizing traffic between components in a network, over a familiar box-and-line diagram of your system architecture. explains Seaman.

The Trend and Datagrid panels focus on different areas. The first, currently in public preview, allows users to display trends where the x-axis is numeric and not time, such as function graphs, rpm/torque curves, supply/demand relationships, and more.

Meanwhile, the latter, an experimental product, offers a spreadsheet-like interface that allows users to edit, refine, and organize their data within each dashboard for presentation purposes.

Once the dashboards are ready, users will also get a new subfolder feature to organize them into folders, categorized by business units, departments, teams, etc.

“Grafana 10 has taken the user experience for developers to the next level, allowing any developer to jump right in and start connecting data sources, creating dashboards, and sharing and extending those sources with teammates,” said Tom Wilkie, CTO at Grafana Labs.

In addition to the new visualizations, Grafana Labs is updating the platform’s public dashboard feature to enable knowledge sharing via email (for Pro and Advanced users only) and add the ability to correlate data from multiple sources for a unified view of the entire data landscape.

“Some good examples are linking error logs to the actual database commands where errors occurred, or linking Traces to applications where they occurred… This kind of correlation was previously only possible for our own trace metrics, logs and data sources, but correlations are now possible for all data sources and an unlimited number of combinations,” explains Seaman.

Furthermore, Grafana adds a second interface dedicated solely to managing dashboards as code, making it effortless for users to keep everything up to date, and a new front-end framework “Scenes” to build dashboard experiences into custom apps.

Grafana’s director of product praised Scenes as one of the most exciting new developments, as it will help users embed dashboard elements such as panels, template variables, and the time range selector into custom applications, where they can create new inputs, drill-downs, tabs, and interactions.

Hardened security

Finally, on the security front, Grafana 10 adds private data source connect (PDC) that uses SOCKS through a secure shell proxy to help users query data sources running in private networks from the Grafana Cloud. Previously, this task required opening the network to a range of IP addresses.

“What has been remarkable about the success of Grafana is the evolution of the visualization capabilities that really took off as the Grafana dashboard became ubiquitous. Grafana is not just a visualization front-end for IT infrastructure, it monitors all sorts of other environments from aerospace to distributed ag-tech farms to research projects in academia,” said Torkel Odegaard, the creator of Grafana.
