The groundcover platform was built to be an all-in-one observability solution for cloud-native environments. It was built to ingest any data source directly into groundcover's in-cloud backend using any protocol supported by OpenTelemetry or Prometheus.

It supports any log stream from sources like Fluentd, Fluentbit, Logstash, or CloudWatch logs. Metrics can be ingested via Prometheus remote-write or directly from agents like StatsD and Telegraf. Traces can be ingested from any application instrumented with OpenTelemetry or Datadog’s SDK.
