Kubernetes Podcast from Google: Keptn, with Alois Reitbauer
Keptn, a control plane for continuous delivery, came out of the need to install Dynatrace’s software at their customer’s environments. Alois Reitbauer is Chief Technical Strategist at Dynatrace, reponsible for open source, and a co-chair of the CNCF App Delivery SIG. He talks to your hosts about Keptn, observability after deployment, and how owning a 40 year old sports car is more “curation” than “operation”.

Scaling Event Driven Delivery & Operations with Keptn

Scaling Event Driven Delivery & Operations with Keptn with Andi Grabner

We broke monoliths into microservices and leverage events to orchestrate business processes across all moving pieces. Why are not applying the same event-driven concept to delivery and operations automation? This session introduces the CNCF project Keptn: An Event-Driven Control Plane for automating Continuous Delivery, SLO-Based Quality Gates, SRE Automation and Auto-Remediation. Besides an intro to event-driven CD & CO you will see live demos + how the community is adopting Keptn as well as how you can extend and contribute.

Overcoming scalability issues in your Prometheus ecosystem

Overcoming scalability issues in your Prometheus ecosystem - Talk at Cloud Native Night Munich with Jürgen Etzlstorfer

Prometheus is considered a foundational building block when running applications on Kubernetes and has become the de-facto open-source standard for visibility and monitoring in Kubernetes environments. Your first starting points when operating Prometheus are most probably configuring scraping to pull your metrics from your services, building dashboards on top of your data with Grafana, or defining alerts for important metrics breaching thresholds in your production environment. in your production environment. As soon as you are comfortable with Prometheus as your weapon of choice, your next challenges will be scaling and managing Prometheus for your whole fleet of applications and environments. As the journey “From Zero to Prometheus Hero” is not trivial you will find obstacles on the way. In this presentation, we are highlighting the most common challenges we have seen and provide guidance on how to overcome them. Finally, we are discussing a solution to get you there more quickly to build automated, future-proof observability with Prometheus showing Keptn as one possible implementation.
