Every millisecond costs you in serverless functions. The visible cost is the one that cloud providers charge. The hidden one is when your customers are unhappy with the performance of your application or website. While performance monitoring is a must for modern applications, it may require a high level of effort to implement correct and useful monitoring. Monitoring tools save a life here. We will use Thundra’s APM to measure the latency of the two serverless databases in this article.

CI/CD has become an integral part of any software development workflow. It is hard to imagine a world of software without CI/CD as it is indisputably the backbone of DevOps. From affecting lead times and deployment frequencies to changing failure rates and MTTR, a solid CI/CD can mean success or great failure for any development team.

Picture this: you run a development organization for a small startup. Or a large corporation. You’ve had to make some decisions that, while expedient, aren’t necessarily the most elegant. Time is money and money is time. You need to ship product fast. You have solid architectural standards but the tyranny of the urgent has upended some of your good intentions. This is our story.

Due to the sudden upsurge in the usage of software applications around the globe, enterprises are finding it extremely difficult to meet the time to market demands. Enterprise QA teams that are able to detect errors at the earliest will have more time to work on various other development phases as well as enhance the application quality. With the advent of cloud computing technology, enterprises have leveraged several innovative opportunities in software testing and software deployment.

Moving quickly while also maintaining high quality and availability is a balancing act that is hard to maintain but essential to the success of any software development lifecycle. Many teams today are using DevOps techniques to keep their development process fast without losing the quality and availability their users expect. CI/CD is at the center of this DevOps practice, serving as the essential bridge between your development and operations teams.

If you want to adhere to high code-quality standards, testing your front end is as important as testing every other part of your system. And while it’s not always easy to do, automating these tests is crucial; otherwise, people will get weary and stop doing them. The next logical step, after automating your tests, is to integrate them into your CI/CD pipeline so that all of your new versions are tested before release.

Containers have become the de facto standard for deploying applications. Whether developers are deploying them in the public cloud or a data center, containerization can bring a lot of benefits like a consistent environment, repeatable builds, and easy deployment patterns. But so far, the focus has been on running applications in containers, with very little attention given to running tests in containers.

If you follow software development best practices, you’ve probably written quite a few tests for your code. Unit tests, integration tests, smoke tests, black-box tests, and maybe even end-to-end (E2E) tests.

Remote debugging in distributed environments is painful. Thundra Sidekick is more than just a remote debugger. It's secure and easy to use. When developers push their code to remote development or staging environments in pre-production, they usually lose the ability of traditional debugging with breakpoints. Instead, they have to read the logs carefully and understand what’s going wrong.

Debugging, as in the form with breakpoints, is dead with the advent of distributed microservices. It's usually a problem to debug a remote microservice using intrusive methods because you can interrupt a user and/or another service that's using the debuggee service. Thundra Sidekick resurrects the debugging in microservices with non-intrusive breakpoints that could gather the same information a normal breakpoint would capture.

Thundra Sidekick is an application debugger for remote pre and post production platforms. It enables developers debug their applications 10x faster than before. With Sidekick, developers can debug any kind of applications such as microservices with distributed architectures hosted on cloud or on-premises. Sidekick offers non-breaking breakpoints aka. tracepoints seamlessly combined with distributed tracing. Software teams can debug any application hosted anywhere while collaborating with each other.

Thundra Sidekick removes the debugging burdens and enables developers to put tracepoints to the code which don’t break the execution but take snapshots. Then takes it to the next level by displaying the distributed trace of the modern applications. Thundra Sidekick is helpful when developers work on remote environments and debug their code while they build.

There's a misconception around serverless that it will remove the Ops people from organizations. Serverless removes undifferentiated heavy lifting but makes the Ops people even more valuable for the teams because they are experienced about the failures of a software. Using extensive observability, Ops folks can adapt themselves into serverless and provide more value for their company. In this video, we discuss serverless adaptation for DevOps teams and how Thundra can help.

It has been more than five years since serverless became part of our application development life cycle, following the announcement of AWS Lambda. After realizing some of their limitations, AWS has resolved many of the issues with serverless, and there are many pure serverless applications in production now. In this webinar, we'll talk about the current state of serverless as of June 2020, and discuss the existing challenges of serverless, as well as their solutions.

With serverless, there are now fewer things to be scared of while maintaining always-on software thanks to outsourced scalability, availability, and security issues. At the same time, developers tend to architect more distributed systems in order to take advantage of serverless and guarantee the modularity of their architecture. The downside of this is that losing access to the underlying server makes debugging harder than ever because you can’t pause the execution to debug.

Debugging in production can provide an opportunity to pinpoint bugs that might not be apparent in the development or staging stacks. In this whitepaper, we will discuss how to effectively debug in production.

Kubernetes is a complex system but not a complicated one. Its layered architecture is open to creating disasters caused by networking, security, configuration, and cloud provider limitations. Learning from others' mistakes is the new reality of succeeding for cloud applications. This perfectly applies to Kubernetes-based software architectures and your software, too. If you don't understand how other people will fail, it's more likely that you'll fail at some point.

Learn how you can gain observability through serverless architectures with native tools like AWS X-Ray, open-source solutions like OpenTelemetry, and automated solutions like Thundra! This paper walks through the problem of serverless observability. It starts by defining the observability problem space, explaining how debugging and tracing are only part of a larger picture of application behavior. We'll explore AWS CloudWatch and X-Ray as a first attempt at observability. Then we will detail several open source serverless availability tools, before discussing Thundra's automated approach to observability.
