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.

RECORDED EVENT: In today’s modern software factories, organizations are shifting security to the left. No longer just the purview of firewalls, security needs to be built in during development and deployment processes. By doing so, organizations can ensure they are limiting vulnerabilities getting into production while cutting costs of both downtime and code rework. Learn about:

Recorded Event: Organizations in a wide range of industries are rapidly adopting microservices because of the promise of greater agility and scalability. However, managing the performance of microservices-based applications introduces new challenges. Gartner stated in a recent report that traditional APM tools which were purpose-built for monoliths aren’t well suited to the dynamism, modularity, and scale of microservices-based applications.
During this webinar Tyler Wells, Director of Engineering at Twilio and Dennis Chu, Director of Product Marketing at LightStep share their insights about how to effectively manage the performance of microservices-based applications. You’ll learn how Twilio was able to:

Recorded Event: Improved efficiency, reduced cost, and new revenue streams are the promised benefits of IoT deployments. To attain these results, connectivity management comes to the forefront, providing the ability to effectively connect, monitor, and manage multiple devices spread out over diverse areas.
Connectivity management, regardless of the number of devices or the amount of data transmitted, must be simplified for cost and efficiencies. The solution comes via a single platform, one that simplifies the connectivity management process, includes heightened security, and enables performance optimizations and cost controls.
In this webinar we look into the issues, the challenges, and the benefits of an evolving IoT landscape. We then then provide insights to solutions and growth in this sector.
