Get the premiere industry report that quantitatively defines the state of the modern application stack and the shift in technology used by enterprises adopting Cloud and DevSecOps. Cloud Architects, Operations/DevOps teams as well as Security Operations teams and practitioners can leverage this report as they look to effectively and securely build, run and secure modern applications and cloud infrastructures.
For decades, Microsoft SQL has been a leading relational database solution within Windows-based environments. The extension of Microsoft SQL support to Linux servers in 2017 made the platform even more popular. There’s a good chance that, no matter which types of infrastructure or servers you manage, there are Microsoft SQL databases residing somewhere on them.
We at Sumo Logic believe in an open, flexible, community-driven approach to collecting observability data. Those reasons are outlined in one of my recent blogs. In that publication, I share the belief that an application’s observability gains traction from the fact that telemetry signals are designed, composed, and produced by an application developer/vendor in compliance with industry standards, and are not a proprietary, black box component of the monitoring vendor.
Modern applications are often built, deployed, and managed as container images. At the same time, however, developers are drawn to serverless technologies for running their code without having to worry about infrastructure. AWS is now helping you bridge the gap between these two paradigms by allowing you to build and deploy serverless AWS Lambda functions with container images. This allows you to harness the power of AWS Lambda without having to rewrite or modify your development workflows.
Today Amazon announced Amazon EKS Distro, a distribution for Kubernetes based on and used by Amazon EKS. Amazon EKS Distro enables you to create secure and reliable Kubernetes clusters using the same versions of Kubernetes and its dependencies deployed by Amazon EKS. Each Amazon EKS Distro release follows the EKS process, verifying new Kubernetes versions for compatibility. The Amazon EKS Distro source code, open source tooling, binaries, and container images as well as configuration are provided for reproducible builds via public Git and S3 storage locations.
We’re happy to partner with AWS on their launch of AWS Network Firewall by providing a cloud-native integration that gives customers real-time visibility into network traffic and automated correlated events surfaced by AWS. Too often, virtual private cloud (VPC) traffic is a black box leaving many security operations teams unable to connect potential threats to their broader infrastructure. This lack of visibility only serves to increase the time it takes security analysts to investigate and respond to potential threats, thereby reducing the organization’s security posture.
MongoDB is a leading NoSQL database that has proven itself through time as a stable and easy-to-use system of great flexibility. There are numerous tutorials and real-world success stories that show how MongoDB has helped with supporting the database needs of certain organizations and projects. It’s fair to say that using MongoDB proves to be a solid choice for integrating with web-based applications and microservices serving as a database system or even as a monitoring aggregator itself.
Log analysis helps organizations determine the best way to optimize application functionality while giving development teams a leg up in root cause analysis. With that said, it’s not feasible to scroll through thousands of lines of log entries in a text editor. Instead, development teams need modern tools that enable them to centralize, filter, and analyze their logs in a way that allows them to glean valuable insights in a time-efficient manner.
This week Sumo Logic announced our new Observability Suite, which included the general availability of our distributed tracing capabilities as part of our Microservices Observability solution. This new solution provides end-to-end visibility into user transactions across services, as well as seamless integration into performance metrics and logs to accelerate issue resolution and root-cause analysis. In this blog, we’ll explore the new solution in detail.
Platform architects, SREs, developers and DevOps staff for mission-critical modern apps know shaving 15 minutes off service incidents that take 20 minutes to resolve, four times a year, is the difference between meeting a 99.99% availability objective and missing it. After a successful worldwide preview, Sumo Logic Observability is now ready for site reliability, DevOps, developers and platform engineers to resolve incidents faster, maximize availability, and optimize their cloud infrastructure, microservices, and application operations for reliability objectives.
As digital transformation accelerates across all industries, it has become increasingly important for businesses to get better, much better at the development and delivery of new software to drive revenue and engage customers in new ways. Ironically, most businesses are flying blind in how they track, benchmark and optimize their software development.
