Helios vs. Coralogix

Your tracing is only as good as the
data collected

With breadth and depth of data collection unmatched by any other vendor, Helios offers best-of-breed trace visualization capabilities and seamless integration. We contribute to OpenTelemetry, ensuring that our platform remains at the forefront of industry standards. And if you ever decide to send your data elsewhere, you can replace the Helios collector with the OpenTelemetry collector, so there is no vendor-lock concern.
