Title: Monitoring Microservices in Real Real-Time
Speaker: Brian Ashburn, Senior Solutions Engineer at SignalFx
Abstract: Microservices have and are taking the world by storm. As our architectures get more distributed, more scalable, and more ephemeral, we need to reevaluate how we monitor and track the health of these services. Traditional monitoring does not suffice for these types of environments. Increased automation requires lightning fast reaction times and even the ability to predict where things are headed. We will discuss how SignalFx can ingest the scale of metrics that come from microservices in Kubernetes and Cloud-Native environments and still be able to react in mere seconds to trigger automation and remediation. We will demonstrate the power that real-time analytics brings to determining the health of these microservices and even predicting when things are going wrong before they hit failure. We will also show how distributed tracing can enhance the metrics and analytics for these systems.
Title: Kubernetes Service and Storage Orchestrator for Containers
Speaker: Josh Haley, Business Solutions Architect at NetApp
Abstract: NetApp recently acquired StackPointCloud, a leader in multi-cloud Kubernetes as-a-service and contributor to the Kubernetes project. The combination of StackPointCloud with NetApp creates NetApp Kubernetes Service, the industry’s first complete Kubernetes platform for multi-cloud deployments and a complete cloud-based stack for Azure, Google Cloud, AWS, and NetApp HCI. Further, Trident is a fully supported open source project maintained by NetApp, designed from the ground up to help meet the sophisticated persistence demands of containerized applications.
