Proactive Ops for Container Orchestration Environments

Break - inspect - fix is the Ops workflow for infrastructure stacks of the past. Distributed infrastructure and applications claim to be the new generation, but why is it so much more painful to maintain and troubleshoot them? Much of the pain comes from outdated operational models relying on reactive or, worse yet, manual monitoring and Ops.

This talk lays out a proactive Ops model for container infrastructure. By focusing on event monitoring, infrastructure state monitoring, trend analysis, and distributed log collection, a proactive Ops model delivers observability for distributed apps that was not possible before. Using real-world examples from Swarm and Kubernetes, we'll demonstrate the tools used and how we relieve Ops pain in container orchestration.
