The future of serverless everything

David Linthicum

Sometimes I think we’re overdoing it with serverless. Once it was a handy platform that saved you from having to size server resources correctly and that removed resources when no longer needed. Today it’s a catchall that has different meanings depending on its applications and who’s provided serverless as a service on the public clouds. I’m seeing some obvious trends that enterprises may be able to exploit. Here’s a head up. Also on InfoWorld: 11 tools that make Kubernetes better ].

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.
