Epsagon Launches Agentless Tracing and Why That’s Important

Today, at Epsagon, we are announcing our agentless tracing and logging tool for modern applications. Our SaaS solution now extends beyond AWS Lambdas and is now geared for containers, VMs and function-as-a-service (Faas) deployments for cloud environments on AWS, Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud, and others, as well as on-premise deployments.


AWS ECS, Fargate, Kubernetes: Orchestration Services Comparison

Whether you like it or not, application containers are gaining a foothold everywhere. Even the most conservative fields such as banking are going down the microservices route. But solving one problem often leads to finding another. Designing microservices architecture and building containers for your applications is one step. But to successfully ship a product that scales, resists outages, and allows for updates without any downtime, you need something more than just a container engine.


Epsagon Accelerates Customer Experience by Adopting the AWS Marketplace Enterprise Contract

Today, we are expanding our collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) and by providing availability of Software-as-a-Service (SaaS) Contracts through the AWS Marketplace, allowing an automated and accelerated purchasing process for AWS customers and expediting time-to-value with Epsagon.


Introduction to Distributed Tracing

In “2001: A Space Odyssey,” the course of human history is managed by strange and forbidding black monoliths. Monolithic applications can often seem as strange and enigmatic as Kubrick’s stone slabs. Both types of monoliths often have no clear purpose, and it is impossible to figure out how they work. One of the film’s central characters is HAL 9000, a large sentient mainframe that goes haywire in spectacular fashion.


Introducing the Timeline View

Troubleshooting serverless applications has been one of the major benefits for Epsagon’s users from day one. Finding the root cause of complex issues is accelerated to minutes or even seconds using Epsagon, compared to using other solutions. Today, we are announcing the timeline view – an easy way to identify performance problems in your distributed application.

5 Approaches to Serverless Application Observability

Serverless applications are complex, distributed architectures of functions and API calls, encapsulated within ephemeral containers. Without careful development and extensive testing, performance issues can degrade the user experience and rack up costs. And yet, end-to-end real-time observability is key to monitoring and troubleshooting application performance, and it is not easy to achieve this in a serverless environment.
