Airbrake vs. Sentry

Why are developers pumping the brakes on Sentry and moving to Airbrake?

Trusted by thousands of the world’s best engineering teams, Airbrake Error Monitoring silently monitors your applications for errors, 24 hours/day, 7 days/week. Airbrake is lightweight, developer-centric, and provides immediate insight into your entire app stack.

Furthermore, unlike Sentry, Airbrake Error Monitoring is affordable and feature-rich. Here’s a little bit about Airbrake Plans: 

  • Plans start as low as $19 per billing cycle 
  • Plans are priced according to errors, not features
  • All features are included with every Airbrake Plan - no extra charge per user, for integrations, or SAML SSO.  


At a much more affordable price, here are features you’ll have with Airbrake that you’ll be missing with Sentry:

A feature-packed, 30-day, no-risk, free trial is included with all Airbrake plans.

“Airbrake has such an intuitive experience for debugging that it enabled a significantly faster triage process. For a recent issue, I started reading through the git diff (~1000 lines) and spotted the bug within a minute or two. The fix was deployed moments later. All in all it took just 30 minutes from error detection to deployed fix.”

“It wasn’t until we switched to Airbrake that we finally were able to get our exception emails under control. The ability to see your errors in one place, mark them as resolved, and organize them by deploy makes all the difference."
