Open Source for Better Observability
In the cloud native era systems are getting ever more dynamic and complex. With containers and microservices architecture, monitoring and troubleshooting systems is more challenging than ever before. The open source community has risen up to the challenge and delivered solutions that fit modern environments. Open source projects such as Prometheus and the ELK Stack have gathered massive adoption with developers and DevOps engineers, who also carry this skillset between companies and grow the adoption. New open standards, such as OpenMetrics, OpenTracing and OpenTelemetry, are emerging to converge the industry and prevent vendor lock-in. In this talk I will talk about observability, the recommended open source tools and standards, and how to combine them to help you achieve effective observability in your environment.
