SLO Alerting with Wavefront

How to secure ASP.NET Core apps with Azure Key Vault and Sentry

Joao Grassi — a .NET developer, front-end hobbyist, and friend of Sentry — likes .NET very much. So do we.

Organizations will quickly learn that they can’t remain competitive without AIOps. Just like the cloud, AIOps is going to rewire IT.


The Datadog IPO: An Analysis of Datadog's Future.

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.
