Observability - The Evolution of Monitoring of Cloud Native Apps

Most enterprises have a plethora of traditional monitoring and APM tools and are now adding to these with open source tools like Prometheus and Grafana.

With containers and multi cloud, the complexity of the infrastructure and applications you are helping support is increasing. You need something that can "observe everything" so that you don't spend hours on a Webex/Zoom shuttling across multiple tools. And you want analytics that will help you get to the issue-area quickly. Modernising applications that have front-ends in the cloud and back-end in the data centre don't make life any easier.

Join us to learn how observability platforms like VMware Tanzu Observability by Wavefront enables you to:
- Troubleshoot your cloud/hybrid/on-premises applications and environments
- Anticipate possible problems, take corrective action, and prevent unexpected disruption in service
- Use analytics-driven alerts to proactively resolve incidents across private, hybrid, and public clouds

Our presentation includes a live demo and discussion – please bring all your questions.

  • Cloud, Kubernetes, and Making Infrastructure Transformation Work for You May 11 2021 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    James Watters, CTO, VMware Tanzu & Kit Colbert, CTO, Cloud Platform BU, VMware, Derrick Harris from VMware
    The cloud transformation has been happening for more than a decade, and today it’s running in overdrive. However, the goal posts for what’s cutting-edge continue to move and the list of environments that fall under the “cloud” umbrella continues to expand. Anyone transforming their infrastructure today is staring down a combination of VMs, public cloud(s), private cloud, containers, Kubernetes, edge, and everything in between.

    This bounty of options can seem intimidating but, managed well, it’s actually an opportunity to turn infrastructure into a competitive advantage. Compliance, latency, cost, and other factors can all be addressed by selecting the right platform and architecture for the job. Standardizing on technologies like Kubernetes and the VMware Cloud product lineup means ops teams can manage a wide variety of applications much more efficiently because the infrastructure is doing some of the work for them.

    In this webinar, James Watters and Kit Colbert will discuss a range of topics, including:
    - The benefits of running a standard, modern platform across infrastructure locations.
    - The technical and economic realities of operating public cloud, multi-cloud, and Kubernetes environments.
    - The relationship between VMs, containers, and cloud instances, and how to best utilize them.
    - How a cloud native transformation can help empower developers and create a meaningful connection between infrastructure and business objectives.

  • Cómo iniciarse en Kubernetes con VMware Tanzu Recorded: Mar 4 2021 48 mins
    Antonio Gallego, Solution Engineers, VMware & Jose Manzaneque, Solution Engineers, VMware
    Kubernetes se ha consolidado como la forma más usual de que administradores y desarrolladores gestionen tanto la infraestructura como las diferentes aplicaciones, utilizando una API común. Con Kubernetes, los administradores tienen la capacidad de describir programáticamente los recursos de los recursos de computación, almacenamiento y red que necesitan en cada momento; por otro lado, los desarrolladores tienen todo lo necesario para desplegar aplicaciones utilizando los patrones de integración y despliegue más eficientes.

    El despliegue de Kubernetes en una empresa requiere nuevas habilidades y conocimientos especializados. La rápida incorporación de nuevas versiones y características de las aplicaciones impone, también, un ritmo continuo de despliegue de nuevas versiones, con el riesgo de introducir de forma descontrolada agujeros de seguridad y tener que asumir una importante deuda técnica en caso de retrasos en el despliegue. VMware Tanzu ayuda a solucionar estos problemas, al incluir un conjunto de soluciones modernas y seguras para el despliegue y la gestión de Kubernetes a escala, tanto en la infraestructura local como en las diferentes infraestructuras de nube pública.

    Durante este webcast, nuestros expertos en cloud-native explicarán cómo implementar Kubernetes, exponiendo interesantes casos de uso y demos:

    - Tanzu Kubernetes Grid - distribución de Kubernetes basada en Cluster-API
    - Tanzu Mission Control - panel de gestión multi-cloud para cualquier distribución K8s

    - vSphere y Tanzu - integración de Kubernetes directamente en VMware vSphere y VMware Cloud Foundation
  • It’s pronounced ‘DevOps.’ The ‘Sec’ is silent Recorded: Feb 26 2021 44 mins
    Dormain Drewitz, Sr. Director, Product Marketing, VMware
    "I have a DevOps team, so why is it still so painful to release software?"

    DevOps has been a hot buzzword for a decade. Like Agile before it, many now claim to be doing some degree of DevOps. But looking more closely, software release processes are still slow and manual.

    A common roadblock in making the path to production frictionless and automated is security. Late-stage security checks catching vulnerabilities that need rework. Lack of adherence to security architecture requirements. Manual approaches to remediation. Combined with ever-growing concern over security breaches and the need to solve for the security in DevOps is heightened. Hence, the rise of DevSecOps.

    Arguably, if you're doing DevOps right, you've solved for security. But, clearly, that's not happening on its own. In this talk, Dormain Drewitz will discuss:
    - Why the measures of success don't change from DevOps to DevSecOps—but are critically important
    - What technologies support secure software delivery
    - How a product mindset facilitates continuous improvement in the face of change
Exploring Technology to Help You Build Modern Software
