099 — Cloud-Native Application Observability with Chronosphere

We are now in the era of cloud-native application development. And while this new paradigm has incredible benefits in terms of time to market, efficiency, and more, it ramps up the complexity factor significantly.

With dozens, hundreds, or thousands of microservices comprising an application, observability is harder than ever, while at the same time being more crucial than ever. There are a lot of moving parts to track.

That problem is the subject of this “10 on Tech” episode with Chronosphere. CEO/Co-Founder Martin Mao joins ActualTech Media Partner James Green for a fascinating discussion on this emerging topic. They chat about the challenges of observability in cloud-native environments, and why the “3 Pillars” of observability are starting points, not the end of the game of proper outcomes.

Highlights of the show include:

  • What Chronosphere learned about app observability from Uber
  • Why it’s imperative that developers monitor their own cloud-native apps
  • Advantages of observability in cloud-native production environments
  • How cloud-native infrastructure complexity hampers observability
  • The “3 Pillars” of observability
  • How Chronosphere addresses the “3 Phases” of observability
