Last week, Percona Live 2017 gave us the chance to meet with our friends and peers at the best open-source database conference in the world. Hundreds of thought leaders and experts came together to discuss and present cutting edge ideas in our industry, demonstrating how rapidly monitoring and data technologies continue to evolve.
Baron Schwartz, VividCortex's founder and CEO, presented Wednesday's keynote, "The Future of Monitoring is Distributed," one of the conference's highlights. If you didn't get the chance to see Baron speak in Santa Clara—or you did and just want to see a replay—we're happy to share a full recording and slide deck of Baron's presentation below.
From the presentation:
Three Distrubuted Monitoring Capabilities
- Specialization - Be the "best in breed" in a specific domain.
- Systems View - Systems are more than their parts.
- Composability - Act as a leaf node in an observability tree.
Watch Baron's full keynote and learn what a highly-distributed future will look like:
The full slide deck:
It's common knowledge that a steadily increasing number of technologies are transitioning to the cloud, but there's another shift happening too: our technologies are becoming more distributed, spreading their resources across a widening variety of platforms. Baron's talk examines why distributed systems present new, difficult challenges for performance monitoring—and why these challenges must be considered now, to ensure monitoring is ready for a highly-distributed future.
