Leveraging Elasticsearch as a Time Series Database

Leveraging Elasticsearch as a Time Series Database - Lessons from a DevOps Engineer

The DevOps team at NS1 realized that we were spending more time managing our telemetry system, rather than the services being monitored. A reevaluation of the alternatives led us to replace our time series database with Elasticsearch. The criteria to replace our time series database included:

- A single system for metrics and unstructured telemetry
- Granular control over what data is stored and retained
- Easy scalability
- Large diverse community
- Sufficient analysis capabilities

Watch this discussion to hear about our evaluation process and the lessons learned, and learn how NS1 simplified operations and reduced operational costs by combining logs and metrics in the Elastic Stack.

  • The Myths of Reliability Recorded: Jun 2 2020 35 mins
    Casey Rosenthal, Co-founder & CEO, Verica
    Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery both brought fundamental changes to how we build, operate, and maintain infrastructure at scale.

    Our knowledge of the systemic properties of complex systems has improved, leading us into a new era. Much of this knowledge has been at the expense of reliability "best practices" that feel very intuitive, but are not backed up by data.

    Forward-looking enterprises reject those myths and are now discussing their CI/CD, and now Continuous Verification strategy.

    Join Verica’s Casey Rosenthal as he discusses:

    - Why the shipbuilding industry benefited from risk-taking
    - How small decisions had outsized impacts as the shoe industry scaled
    - What myths are in the way of reliability and in turn more resilient systems

  • The Secret to Automating Your Network Infrastructure Recorded: Mar 11 2020 29 mins
    Jasmine Noel, Sr. Manager of Product Marketing
    The value of automation is obvious: resilient, secure, agile environments to deliver applications fast. But why are so many processes still manually driven?

    The answer? Enterprises still need to deal with mainframes, dedicated appliances, and VMs in addition to new architectures like containers. Applications live everywhere -- on-prem, in the cloud -- public or private, internal network, and external network.

    This means the threat landscape is constantly changing so if a network engineer has to reconfigure firewalls and access points every time some new malware is found, and an application deployed. Listen in to learn actual ways companies are automating their infrastructure today to address those problems.
