Migration Overview

Last Updated: Jun 16, 2017 04:25PM EDT

Google Stackdriver is now available for all AWS & GCP users. There is a lot to be excited about with the new service and we want to make sure our current customers have all the information with respect to how this change will affect their day-to-day usage of Stackdriver. We will be shutting down Legacy Stackdriver on December 1, 2017. 

As current Stackdriver users, you'll find some resources below to help in the migration process. 

Migration Incentives (for paid customers only)

  • 6 months of free deployment time on Google Stackdriver
  • 1 year of complimentary support 
  • 3 years of price protection (if applicable)
Please use our migration form to request your incentives. If you have any questions please don’t hesitate to send us a message at stackdriver-migration@google.com

Feature Comparison


  • Log management, including the ability to ingest, store search, filter, and export system and application logs
  • Support for Amazon Web Services & Google Cloud Platform
  • 500 custom metric timeseries added to account-wide quota per resource monitored
  • Labeled custom metrics
  • Y-axis zoom
  • New metric API functionality, including the ability to export timeseries for all resources
  • Extensions into GCP tools (Datalab, BigQuery)
  • Integration with popular single sign-on (SSO) solutions via Google Domains


While there are a lot of great new features in Google Stackdriver, we're working hard to make sure all of the features that you know and love are available too. At the moment, we do not have support for the following features:
  • Maintenance mode
  • Chart annotation
  • Deploy events
  • On-prem server monitoring
  • SNS notification channel support
  • Automated actions (alert policies)
  • AWS Health Checks
  • CloudTrail integration
  • Teams for alert notifications
  • Dashboard-level group filtering (nav-bar dropdown)

We are hoping to add all of these features back at some point. Please reach out at stackdriver-migration@google.com and let us know how these rank for you.
