Context: Monitoring and Observability Trends, KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2019

Listen to all TNS podcasts on Simplecast.

This week on The New Stack Context podcast, recorded live from KubeCon + CloudNativeCon 2019, we’re talking all about monitoring and observability. Our guests are Kresten Krab Thorup, chief technology officer for Humio and Colin Fernandes, director of product marketing at Sumo Logic.

Sumo Logic is a machine data analytics company that has just announced an additional $110 million round of funding, making it worth over $1 billion. Humio is demonstrating the intake of 100 terabytes of data per day on only 25 nodes while delivering real-time observability of data. Both are on the cutting edge of understanding what intelligence we can gather from the operating conditions of our machines.

We spoke with them about the trends they’re seeing around data management and logging, both practices are seeing tremendous change, as end-users collect more and more data, while wanting to see analysis in real-time. We also talk about changes in cloud native monitoring and logging, including the recent consolidation of OpenTracing and OpenCensus into a single project, called Open Telemetry.

In the second half of the show, we offer our top podcast and stories picks, including the move to free some proprietary Kubernetes extensions with a new project called KubeMove. We also discuss our recent @Scale podcast, which confronts the challenges that the newly-launched CD Foundation has in normalizing the vast set of cloud native tools for continuous delivery,

Libby Clark, The New Stack editorial and marketing director, hosted this episode, with the help of Alex Williams, TNS founder and publisher, and Joab Jackson, managing editor.
