Gravity: Running Cloud Applications in Remote, Restricted and Regulated Environments.

Gravity is an application delivery system that lets engineers deliver and run cloud-native applications in regulated, restricted, or remote environments without added complexity. Gravity works by putting applications and all their dependencies onto a single deployable file, which can be used to create hardened Kubernetes clusters that can reliably and securely run in any Linux environment: edge, multi-cloud, private cloud, on-prem, and air-gapped.

An Introduction to Azure Observability with Logz io

DevOps teams monitor their logs, metrics, and traces to identify and troubleshoot production issues in their Azure environments. But as they add new microservices, the scale and variety of telemetry data quickly becomes overwhelming. Learn how the Logz.io Observability Platform simplifies monitoring by providing the open source tools engineers prefer on a single, integrated platform purpose built for monitoring distributed cloud workloads.

Online Debugging Java AWS Lambda Functions Using Thundra Debugger

One of the biggest pain points of shifting to serverless architectures is debugging. Since developers lost access to the underlying infrastructure, the only resources they now have to debug serverless applications are the logs printed as a result of an invocation. However, it takes a lot of time to write a new logline, deploy the function, and check the logs once again. Step-through debugging, setting breakpoints, and inspecting variables can increase developer efficiency.

The Anatomy of a Secure Serverless Platform, pt. I --- Design

A good software design tool enables rapid visualization of application architectures, much like a virtual whiteboard. A great design tool validates service architectures, their communication flows and the infrastructure required to execute them—and builds a scaffold that can be seamlessly taken forward into development. Security is a vital component of that scaffolding, starting at the design stage and extending through the application lifecycle.

How AI Technologies are Helping us Battle COVID-19

I was worried about COVID-19 long before most people. Back in January, reports of a new pneumonia-like virus tearing through the Chinese region of Wuhan just wouldn’t go away. I know a little about the history of pandemics. I know it’s very unlikely that China will be able to contain a highly communicable, novel virus within its own borders.

Tutorial: Ship AWS EC2 Metrics to Logz.io

Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (a.k.a., EC2), is no doubt the core current computing infrastructure. It sits at the heart of AWS, the main kind of structure for housing virtual machines and containers for development and operations. Applying standards of observability with EC2 logs and obviously EC2 metrics will inform you on if you have the right sorts of instances in place (and the appropriate size of those instances).
