Why the Rise of DevOps Demands Continuous Optimization

The rise of DevOps has been wonderful. Now that developers and operations folk can work together in an agile setting, deployment windows are no longer stuck within slow, quarterly rhythms. Production deployments can occur hundreds of times every day, and companies can deliver features, fixes and updates in rapid fashion. Within an agile DevOps setting, Continuous Integration (CI), Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment (CD) have become established practices.


How Grafana Labs Effectively Pairs Loki and Kubernetes Events

As we’ve rolled out Loki internally at Grafana Labs, we wanted logs beyond just simple applications. Specifically while debugging outages due to config, Kubernetes, or node restarts, we’ve found Kubernetes events to be super useful.

That’s useful, but to make the very most of syslog, you also want to be able to analyze log data.


Sentry's Internal Integrations: Build internal tools that fit your workflow

Sentry helps developer teams build the most reliable software. Our help often manifests in two distinct forms: resolving issues in your product and ensuring that issue resolution fits seamlessly into existing workflows. We recently launched our Integration Platform, which allows developers to build publicly available tools on top of Sentry.
