3 cloud security 'hacks' to consider today

David Linthicum

Are you the cloud security person, or cloudsec/cloudops, as it’s often called? The person who controls the cloud deployment, including all security such as IAM (identity and access management), encryption services, and application and user authentication? I have some observations about cloud security to share. First, enterprises typically don’t have a good-fitting security solution.

Why Distributed Tracing is Essential for Performance and Reliability

Speaker: Daniel "spoons" Spoonhower, CTO and Co-Founder at Lightstep

Many engineering organizations have now adopted microservices or other loosely coupled architectures, often alongside DevOps practices. Together these have enabled individual service teams to become more independent and, as a result, have boosted developer velocity. However, this increased velocity often comes at the cost of overall application performance or reliability. Worse, teams often don’t understand what’s affecting performance or reliability – or even who to ask to learn more. Distributed tracing was developed at organizations like Google and Twitter to address these problems and has also come a long way in the decade since then. By the end of this presentation, you’ll understand why distributed tracing is necessary and how it can bring performance and reliability back under control.
