Break down those cloud security silos

David Linthicum

Do you have good cloud security? If you said yes, I bet it’s just around a small group of applications that were built during a short sprint. The group quickly picked and installed a cloud security solution that worked well for those applications and data stores, or that they considered best of breed. Now add other sprints, other workloads and data stores, along with best-of-breed security solutions, all seemingly effective. Repeat 20 to 50 more times.

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.

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.
