Adapting to new business challenges and possibilities is what cloud-native and serverless really means. Shifting away from our traditional on-premise infrastructure to meet these new demands requires a new approach to managing operations with an unfamiliar set of architectural approaches. Developers must learn to develop microservices applications and use Serverless functions while our operations teams learn to leverage a self-healing, fault-tolerant system at any scale. There is lots to learn on both sides of this DevOps equation.
Open Source is a key part of the Enterprise technology stack and has been since Linux took over as the OS of choice and Jenkins stole the hearts of the enterprise change management team. Today we have hundreds of options in open source covering the entire DevOps landscape from development through testing and release.
As we move containerized applications and microservices into the cloud, we are faced with a different set of security challenges. While the Cloud can solve some of the security challenges common in monolithic architecture, this modern architecture has its own to remedy. Join us for a day of learning and discussion around Cloud and Application Security. It is time to take security seriously.
Moving to a cloud-native architecture changes our needs around monitoring system usage and performance. While monitoring servers is still critical, we also need to manage cloud-scale environments, the applications, databases and the tools that support them. Observability is the evolution of Application Performance Monitoring or APM. It includes mapping the topology of dependencies, logs, metrics and traces at an endpoint or clusters, providing root cause analysis feedback.
