Recently, my colleague Yoann blogged about our efforts to reduce the storage footprint of our Clickhouse cluster by using the LowCardinality data type. But reducing the actual usage of your storage is only one part of the journey and the next step is to get rid of excess capacity if possible. As every engineer that has worked in a cloud environment knows, growing a virtual disk is easy, but simply shrinking it back once you don’t need the amount of storage unfortunately isn’t possible.

Software is not static. As soon as you roll out an update, someone requests a new feature. Even if everything works fine, an infrastructure upgrade can break your code, and resolving one issue can create another. End users deserve a seamless experience, services, and applications that work.

Your Application Monitoring strategy is a critical factor that makes or breaks your ability to keep software delivery up to pace with user expectations. Manual monitoring puts all that at risk. In fact, the more your applications change, the more you must automate your monitoring processes.

Observability is a highly visible topic in DevOps and Cloud Native discussions. But does observability need a bigger vision or broader applicability to break through to the next level? Can past precedents point a way to accommodate current and future technical trends? Metrics and logs are well understood, and distributed tracing has surfaced on the global developer consciousness. OpenTelemetry is a very good starting point for the next iteration, but it only addresses a subset of the problem space.
