Now that you've learned your way around Log Analytics and Application Insights, let’s move on to discuss how you can set up alerting in Azure Monitor. Azure Monitor is the centralized console where you can create alerting around various resources in your subscription and also manage it.
One of the biggest pain points of shifting to serverless architectures is debugging. Since developers lost access to the underlying infrastructure, the only resources they now have to debug serverless applications are the logs printed as a result of an invocation. However, it takes a lot of time to write a new logline, deploy the function, and check the logs once again. Step-through debugging, setting breakpoints, and inspecting variables can increase developer efficiency.
A good software design tool enables rapid visualization of application architectures, much like a virtual whiteboard. A great design tool validates service architectures, their communication flows and the infrastructure required to execute them—and builds a scaffold that can be seamlessly taken forward into development. Security is a vital component of that scaffolding, starting at the design stage and extending through the application lifecycle.
We sat down for a virtual Q&A with Drew Del Matto, CFO of Netskope, to get his thoughts and advice for C-level executives who are navigating concerns for their workforce and ongoing business.
I was worried about COVID-19 long before most people. Back in January, reports of a new pneumonia-like virus tearing through the Chinese region of Wuhan just wouldn’t go away. I know a little about the history of pandemics. I know it’s very unlikely that China will be able to contain a highly communicable, novel virus within its own borders.
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (a.k.a., EC2), is no doubt the core current computing infrastructure. It sits at the heart of AWS, the main kind of structure for housing virtual machines and containers for development and operations. Applying standards of observability with EC2 logs and obviously EC2 metrics will inform you on if you have the right sorts of instances in place (and the appropriate size of those instances).
In the last post, we compared kiam and kube2iam head-to-head. While kube2iam was declared the winner of that comparison, I feel that the case for kiam too compelling, and the setup too complicated, to not share my experience setting it up in production.
