Instant scale up for even the most dynamic ECS clusters

One of the key features of Ocean by Spot is a “headroom” feature, the ability to maintain a dynamic buffer of spare capacity for immediate scale-up. Ocean continuously predicts which workloads are most likely to require scale-up and adjusts headroom in line with this prediction to enable immediate scheduling of new tasks, without waiting for infrastructure provisioning. This shortens the time to execution for these workloads and dramatically speeds up the scale-up process.


Monitoring AWS Lambda with Prometheus and Sysdig

In this post, we will show how it’s easily possible to monitor AWS Lambda with Sysdig Monitor. By leveraging existing Prometheus ingestion with Sysdig, you will be able to monitor serverless services with a single-pane-of-glass approach, giving you the confidence to run these services in production.


Prometheus Metric Federation with Thanos

Prometheus is a CNCF graduated project for monitoring and alerting. It is one of the most widely used monitoring and alerting tools in the Kubernetes ecosystem. Rancher users can leverage Prometheus quickly by using the built-in monitoring stack. Prometheus stores its metrics as a time series database on the local disk. Prometheus local storage is limited by the size of the disk and amount of metrics it can retain.

5 Risks You Need to Remember When Securing Your Containers

Containers are on the rise. As reported by GlobalNewswire, Allied Market Research estimated that the application market would grow from its 2016 value of $698 million to $8.20 by 2025. With a compound annual growth rate of 31.8% between 2018 and 2025, this increase would largely reflect both the surge in popularity in application container technology along with a growing number of organizations’ migration to the cloud.
