The latest News and Information on Serverless Monitoring, Management, Development and related cloud technologies.


Azure Logic Apps 101 - Developer tools: what are my options (Part II)

In the first part of this article, we mention that at the moment, you have three options for you to start developing your Logic Apps: And we analyze the advantages, disadvantages, and how to start developing Logic Apps by using the Azure Portal. Today we are going to address. Today we are going to do the same but this time using Visual Studio 2019.


Best Practices of Serverless at Scale

Share A serverless application in its infancy looks and runs vastly different to one at scale. When there are more components to manage, the key to operational excellence is rooted in serverless best practices. Dashbird was created with the mission to help developers succeed with modern cloud environments, no matter their size. As experienced developers ourselves, we’ve faced and understand the challenges found in the functionality of at-scale serverless architecture.


The Future of Ops Careers

Have you seen Lambda: A Serverless Musical? If not, you really have to. I love Hamilton, I love serverless, and I’m not trying to be a crank or a killjoy or police people’s language. BUT, unfortunately, the chorus chose to double-down on one of the stupidest and most dangerous tendencies the serverless movement has had from day one: misunderstanding and trash-talking operations.

DevOps Transformation with Serverless and Observability

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.

Monitor serverless configuration changes with Datadog Deployment Tracking

Serverless architectures remove the need to provision and maintain infrastructure components like servers and containers, so developers can focus on writing and deploying code. However, serverless architectures also introduce new challenges to monitoring and observability. Teams building serverless applications can iterate quickly and deploy frequent code and configuration changes, making it difficult to track what impact these changes have on your applications.


Adopting Observability to Pull Yourself Out of the Pits of Serverless Anti-Patterns

Serverless offers opportunities that are transforming how we think about building in the cloud. The days of worrying about complex and brittle cloud infrastructure on which sits your entire business logic are soon coming to an end. All of these responsibilities are increasingly now delegated to a cloud vendor, allowing you to focus primarily on your business logic. However, due to a large amount of the underlying architecture being delegated, serverless results in an unintended disadvantage.

Understand Your Microservices: Observability in Modern Applications | DevOps Experience

Presented by: Chris Harding, Solution Engineer at Epsagon. Microservices have many benefits but are also complex and hard to monitor and troubleshoot. Join us as we discuss the growth in adoption of these environments, including Kubernetes and containers, and the challenges that they have presented us all, focusing on why standard metrics and logs by themselves are leaving gaps in your observability strategy.

Instana's Automatic Lambda Tracing: Why Instana Doesn't Use the New Lambda Extensions

Earlier this month, AWS launched the preview of the Lambda extensions framework. Some players in the Observability space announced their own extensions. In contrast, Instana did not make such a move. I thought I would explain why we didn’t launch our own extension, why we currently have no plans to do so (despite being kindly offered the opportunity) and — most importantly — why Instana users will miss nothing by NOT having an Instana Lambda extension.


How Dashbird Atlas Accelerates Serverless Observability

Share When it comes to serverless applications, their distributed nature of exponential scalability and use of potentially thousands of resources automatically begs the need for observability. Using the mass data output of an application to understand and optimize the internal states is a game-changing strategy, but only if used well. Dashbird Atlas takes serverless observability to a new level, reducing excessive noise through simple visualization of your application.
