Sponsored Case Study

Deployment strategies for OpenTelemetry

In this practical talk, we will explore an important paradigm shift in how we practice observability, through the lens of progressively deploying OpenTelemetry across a large organization. Learn how modern observability, which combines the traditional “three pillars” into a single braid of data, will eliminate painful and burdensome aspects of root-causing problems in the systems that we operate. At the same time, learn how to escape vendor lock-in while also managing the complex hodgepodge of observability tools which often builds up around large legacy systems.
