Introduction to New Relic One

New Relic One is a connected, unified UI that gathers all the data you already monitor with New Relic in one place. For engineering teams with complex environments, New Relic One helps you find, visualize, and understand your data so that you can deliver better software.

New Relic One is an entity-centric platform: an entity can be something you monitor directly, like applications and microservices, or indirectly, like data centers. We’ve grouped these together so you can focus more on how data relates to the big picture of your environment. With New Relic One, you get all the data you’re accustomed to, while being able to see how all your applications, services, containers, cloud services, and hosts work together.

New Relic One supports your teams and the work they do, not just your data. Quickly find and fix problems so you can confidently move fast with your software.

Enhances the New Relic platform

New Relic One is not a product, but a way to interact with all your New Relic data more easily. This connected UI for all our products allows you to review your data in one place, and understand how everything fits together. New Relic One adds enhanced usability to the data you already rely on, by eliminating barriers between our products and bringing more data together at a high level. When you need to dig deeper, New Relic One provides links to other parts of the New Relic platform, ensuring you’re directed to the right spot for the information you’re after.

Like any other New Relic product or service, New Relic One is designed to protect you and your customers' data privacy. For more information about New Relic's security measures, see our security and privacy documentation, or visit the New Relic security website.

Quickly understand context

New Relic One gives you and your teams a connected view that cuts through complexity and allows you to:

  • Organize your environments and manage data more effectively with tags. Use tags to illustrate relationships and contextual information for what you monitor. By thoughtfully tagging your entities, you can connect all the data your teams need to understand their increasingly complex and interdependent systems.

  • Find everything you’re monitoring in one place, like entities or dashboards across your organization. Cross-account access brings all types of data together while still making everything easy to find.

  • Tailor custom dashboards for your unique needs. Create visuals that showcase your business needs at a glance, and make the most of your expertise.

  • Get more context while you query with the chart builder which surfaces data definitions as you craft and edit queries. You can read more data definitions with our event data dictionary.
