Unpack Kubernetes Blindspots in 5-Minutes

With Kubernetes being used to scale the operation of containerized microservice architectures, mass amounts of metrics are being delivered on a continuous basis. That continuous stream of data damages the possibility of ensuring the performance of your IT footprint. Especially if the proper tools are not in place to pinpoint missing data. Humio’s ability to gather deep insight from unstructured and structured data provides the visibility needed to highlight what is unseen.
