5 Approaches to Serverless Application Observability

5 Approaches to Serverless Application Observability

Published Apr 8, 2019

Serverless applications are complex, distributed architectures of functions and API calls, encapsulated within ephemeral containers. Without careful development and extensive testing, performance issues can degrade the user experience and rack up costs. And yet, end-to-end real-time observability is key to monitoring and troubleshooting application performance, and it is not easy to achieve this in a serverless environment.

This white paper explores why it is difficult to achieve observability in serverless systems and how next-generation platforms offer the required paradigm shift that closes the serverless-observability gap.
