Back in the good old days of monolithic applications, most developers and application owners relied on tribal knowledge for what performance to expect. Although applications could be incredibly complex, the understanding of their inner workings usually resided within a relative few in the organization. Application performance was managed informally and measured casually.
Joao Grassi — a .NET developer, front-end hobbyist, and friend of Sentry — likes .NET very much. So do we. With the help of one of Sentry’s top 10 SDKs, .NET developer teams process roughly half a billion .NET events every month. In this post, we strive for app security with Azure Key Vault and Sentry. By now, it’s not big news that ASP.NET Core is the future of web development with .NET.
Load balancers and Content Delivery Networks, or CDNs, are both critical tools for delivering modern, cloud-native applications. They play essential roles in ensuring the smooth flow of data between applications and end-users. If you don’t have both a load balancer and a CDN in place, you’re probably in a poor position to guarantee the uptime of your application across a wide geographic area. That does not mean, however, that load balancers and CDNs do the same thing.
Here at Honeybadger, we want to do our part to help student developers keep their apps free from errors. That’s why we are excited to offer our error monitoring, uptime and check-in monitoring tool free of charge to students that take advantage of the GitHub Student Developer Pack.
AWS recently launched a new feature for EC2 users: Optimization Recommendations. This feature operates, they explained, by “calculating ideal configurations based on your past usage.
Imagine for a moment you work as an IT project manager. Your boss just granted you the permission to deploy one of the most powerful workplace collaboration tools on the market. The tool, MS Teams, is like the “Excalibur” of our day—a seemingly magical piece of software that can put order to chaos, and instill direction and security across the entire digital employee landscape.
Remember when the “cloud” was just a buzzword? 10 years ago, many people thought that cloud technology was overhyped. Now, the cloud is a given. There’s a similar discussion about AIOps today. Once again, some people are sceptical. However, I predict that AIOps is destined to follow the cloud, with widespread adoption across industries. Organizations will quickly learn that they can’t remain competitive without AIOps. Just like the cloud, AIOps is going to rewire IT.
Datadog’s rapid growth illustrates a couple of key industry themes: First, growth in cloud applications continues at an unprecedented rate, and second, cloud applications require enterprises to rethink existing tools for visibility. Most significantly, the fact that Datadog has grown rapidly even as traditional monitoring companies have floundered, is a clear illustration of how companies built for a cloud era will disrupt those that were built for an on-premises era.
It all starts with Cortex – a horizontally scalable clustered version of Prometheus that was created three years ago and is now a CNCF Sandbox project. Cortex uses the PromQL engine and the same chunk format as Prometheus – literally the same code base.
