Observability: The Modern Surveillance Approach for the Cloud Era

Today, it has become common practice to use the public cloud as the basis for running applications. With more organisations also leveraging containers in production environments, how can you achieve visibility across your infrastructure and application portfolio? You need something that can "observe everything" and deliver analytics that will help you get to the issue-area quickly.

This session will cover:
- An overview of the concept of "observability”, an approach that has been attracting attention in recent years with both application and operations teams
- How observability enables organisations to monitor real-time everything from full-stack applications to cloud infrastructures, so that you can anticipate possible problems, take corrective action and prevent unexpected disruptions
- The key features you should look for in an observability solution and how this applies to open-source vs commercial models
- How you can make open-source tools like Prometheus enterprise ready

  • Cloud, Kubernetes, and Making Infrastructure Transformation Work for You Recorded: May 11 2021 62 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.
