    Containers on AWS

    In this session, Relus will outline the basics of getting Kubernetes running on top of AWS. Kubernetes is a simple way to deploy containers in a straightforward and scalable way. Kubernetes provides an abstraction over the raw resources that make up a cluster (compute instances, load balancers, etc). Essentially, Kubernetes provides all the faculties needed to support your service-oriented architecture.

    Partner Presentation: New Relic

    Cloud-native Container Monitoring Best Practices

    From microservices to serverless compute platforms and Kubernetes, the overall trend is clear: containers are a critical building block of many modern applications and services. Traditional approaches for monitoring non-containerized applications don’t always work well when understanding application performance in environments with containers, however. From using—and alerting—on the right mix of metrics, logs and traces to instrumenting application code, this talk discusses some best practices New Relic and its customers use to monitor containerized workloads on AWS.

    AWS Lambda & Serverless Architecture

    AWS will give you a basic understanding of AWS Lambda, and how you can leverage the serverless architecture pattern to reduce management and infrastructure costs. We will explore the motivation for going serverless, its strengths and limitations, some typical use cases, and have a quick look at how AWS Lambda changes the development process, resulting in faster time to market. You’ll come away with a clear understanding of the argument for and against Lambda, and selection criteria for pilot projects at your organization.

    Partner Presentation: Sumo Logic
