DevOps Monitoring Webinar By @JKowall | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps #Microservices]

The conference had a good turnout of over 80 attendees for its first year

Baltic DevOps and Upcoming DevOps Monitoring Webinar
By Jonah Kowall

I was able to spend time in Tallinn at the first TopConf conference focused on DevOps.

The conference had a good turnout of over 80 attendees for its first year. The list of speakers was excellent at the conference, including technology companies such as Skype and SoundCloud and thought leaders of DevOps like Kris Buytaert.

Hearing about how Skype has evolved and operates with both custom and standard technologies is interesting, along with the changes they are going through — with Microsoft as their parent company — including leveraging Azure services for new development.

Being an avid music fan, I’m a huge user of SoundCloud so it was great to hear how they were evolving as the company has undergone massive growth. The user interfaces and technologies have evolved considerably, and it was great to talk shop with a great DevOps leader in the organization. Kris spoke well and hit on a lot of fundamentals. I learned quite a bit and enjoyed his comment about legacy software vendors who regularly “DevOps wash” legacy products which would never fit into a modern toolchain.

This amusing comment and content resonated from my feedback to vendors at Gartner.

I was also able to speak for 40 minutes, and take about 10 minutes of Q&A. The topic of my talk was “DevOps Monitoring : FeedBack Loops in Enterprise Environments”. This new talk discusses some of the issues around monitoring in highly iterative environments, and touches on how monitoring is done with both open source and commercial options. I’m doing this same talk along with a Q&A session during a webinar we are hosting Thursday May 28th.

In this webinar, you will learn:

  • Why the traditional focus of IT is changing

  • How you can monitor with this in mind and without pulling your hair out

  • How you can gain business context within your monitoring

In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up and running optimally.

DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it delivers the agility and performance to significantly impact business competitiveness.
