Selecting Managed Services on AWS

Listen to all TNS podcasts on Simplecast.

Welcome to The New Stack Context, a podcast where we discuss the latest news and viewpoints of the emerging cloud native computing community. Today we’re talking with Nitzan Shapira, co-founder and CEO of Epsagon, about how and why to use managed services from a cloud provider such as AWS.

Epsagon is a sponsor of The New Stack that provides automated observability and cost management for serverless applications using distributed tracing and AI technologies. He wrote a post for us this week on the evolution of managed services such as AWS Fargate and Amazon EKS, the tradeoffs and benefits of using them and his tips for how to choose a managed service.

In this article, Shapira writes that managed services really took off as the result of increased complexity from a microservices architecture. It takes a lot of work to manually provision infrastructure when you need to synchronize across multiple machines. Don’t managed services bring their own complexities? How do you approach that decision? We discuss all these matters.

Then later in the show, we discuss the latest news from EnterpriseDB’s Postgres Vision, JFrog’s swampUp, and QCON New York conferences, as well as our top podcast pick from the week, an interview with Gitlab’s Ashish Kuthiala about the changing role of CI/CD.

TNS editorial and marketing director Libby Clark hosted this episode with help from TNS managing editor Joab Jackson.
