You’ve likely heard the term observability being passed around for the past few years, and you might have assumed that it is just another marketing buzzword for monitoring. And you wouldn’t be alone in that thinking.
Some experts would say that “observability”, “AIOPs” and “application Performance Monitoring (APM)” are just terms used to distinguish between products on the market.
But others would argue that there’s a concrete difference between all of these terms.

Early monitoring efforts relied on specialists to scrutinize production environments for issues that might hurt performance. But as IT grew in size and complexity, humans struggled to keep up. Growing out of that struggle, AIOps enabled systems to independently spot anomalies and issue alerts. Adding automation takes AIOps to a whole new level—introducing enhanced options for remediating incidents, handling repetitive tasks, and removing human error.
Over the last several years, organizations have had to deal with exponentially more data than ever before. A good log management solution can help your organization connect the dots between your data, helping you uncover insights you didn’t even know you were looking for. Logs can help you understand what is going on within your organization, which can help you make better business decisions. This buyers guide looks at the challenges of managing logs and showcases some of the leading log management vendors in the industry.

Disaster Recovery (DR) has never been more important. Natural disasters such as hurricanes, wildfires, and floods are on the rise. According to the U.S. National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration the total cost of last year’s natural disasters was approximately $91 billion. FEMA has stated, “the need for forward-leaning action is greater than ever before.” Adding to the need for proactive DR, is the threat of ransomware attacks which are up 300% from 2018.
Join us for our upcoming webinar where you will learn about breakthroughs and best practices in disaster recovery, including how to:

Today’s applications are architectured to work on hybrid, componentized, containerized, distributed, mobile/sensor environments, and so do the networks that sustain all these applications together. Complexity, traffic volume, intolerance to performance degradation and inefficiency will only increase, demanding real-time and holistic monitoring.
Securing containerized applications is quite a bit more challenging than securing traditional monolithic applications. The use of open-source components in code, the microservices within containers, and the containers themselves, all need to be secure to ensure vulnerabilities do not make their way into the deployed application. This guide to container security looks at the issue from many sides through numerous articles, and also offers look at some of the providers of security software.
Changes in software architecture and transition to the cloud have forced the way organizations monitor their applications to change as well. Because of increased complexity of applications — code written in-house, couple with services brought in via APIs, scaling in the cloud, much more data being processed — APM has become more important than ever. This buyers guide looks at the evolution of APM to meet today’s demands, and showcases some of the leading software providers in the APM space.
Monitoring solutions often operate in silos, following the traditional IT organizational structure: infrastructure, network and applications teams. Further, such solutions sometimes operate without the necessary granular visibility into modern containerized environments. Although knowing what is occurring in each aspect of the IT environment is valuable, being able to correlate data from different layers and data sources is fundamental to meet today’s expectations on quality and avoid impacting results.
Monitoring must provide a good understanding of what is going on and what could be brewing undetected. In order to be well-equipped and pursue the goal of persistent satisfactory user experience, IT Operations should dig deeper into inter and intra-container traffic and identify where trouble starts, as well as correlate data from multiple sources for a complete view of the application environment.
In this webinar, Luca Deri, Founder of ntop, will share how they use InfluxDB to collect real-time network traffic monitoring metrics and events to support their ntopng platform. He will share how they made the switch from RRD to InfluxDB, what their data architecture looks like as well as share some challenges and successes using InfluxDB at ntop.

PostgreSQL is catching up to Oracle as more and more enterprises migrate to the most popular open source database. But migration is a lengthy and challenging process, and our 2019 Oracle to PostgreSQL Migration survey showed that there are some surprises along the way; some good, some not so good.
Recorded Event: Most development teams are practicing some form of DevOps these days. Regardless of the extent of that practice, speed is the ultimate measure for success. Another earmark of a successful DevOps practice is the empowerment of smaller teams. Gone is the idea of consolidating complicated toolsets into the hands of a small Center of Excellence (CoE).
RECORED EVENT: As containers become commonplace for delivering and deploying applications, we’ve seen more of our customers taking a “lift-and-shift” approach to migrating their existing applications. In this session, Patrick Maddox, Sr. Director, Twistlock Solutions Architecture, will reveal how an environmental science and engineering consulting company moved its 14-year-old app that models storm surge to containers. The move to containers for this company — which has typical data collection, modeling, and other core line-of-business applications — delivered immediate benefits, including consistency, security and compliance.
