Because monitoring requires some degree of access to your applications, it’s important that you take certain steps to ensure the right amount of access without compromising your app’s security. In this first in a series of posts, we’ll go over some high-level best practices to securing Sensu, followed by a webinar later this month which will offer a deeper dive into setting up certificates.

Until a few years ago, if you did any kind of searching for control planes, you would have found results related to traditional networking concepts. With the advent of cloud computing — including hybrid cloud, multi-cloud, and cloud-native — we’re seeing a lot of tools starting to adopt a “control plane for 'X'” terminology. We’ve heard this term applied to — among other things — Kubernetes. More on that later.

As Caleb recently noted, it’s been a year since the GA release of Sensu Go! In fact, today marks the official one-year mark; since December 5, 2018, Sensu Go has been downloaded over 1 million times — 500,000 installs from Packagecloud and over 500,000 pulls from Docker Hub! To celebrate these milestones, we’re giving away five prizes for Sensu 5.0: four (4) Nintendo Switch™ Lites and one (1) Nintendo Switch™ + a $200 Nintendo eShop Card as a grand prize.

You'll come away with a deeper understanding of assets and the skills you need to create your first.

In theory, the idea of infrastructure that can be deployed between different cloud providers is a wonderful concept. Who wouldn’t love to migrate workloads seamlessly between providers for a variety of reasons? In theory, a tiger with an anger management problem is just a scaled up house-cat.
