  • Monitoring support for legacy systems as well as new dynamic computing environments such as Azure Kubernetes Services;
  • Monitoring the user experience during and after a migration to see how it affects the customer experience;
  • When debugging an outage or performance issue, visibility into every stack layer, from the application to the underlying infrastructure, lowers the time to resolution.

Splunk launches Observability Cloud for multicloud application environments

Splunk | May 06, 2021

Data analytics firm Splunk Inc. is revamping the application and infrastructure monitoring experience for customers with the launch of its new Splunk Observability Cloud that helps detect operational issues affecting apps and the environments they run in, as well as providing investigation and troubleshooting capabilities. The Splunk Observability Cloud is being made generally available today after it was unveiled during the company’s October 2020 Splunk .conf event. The company said at the time it was launching Splunk Observability Cloud to address the enterprise shift to multicloud information technology architectures. That shift can cause major headaches for DevOps teams as it means their applications and services run across a sprawling infrastructure environment, making it hard to keep track of everything that happens within it. With the Splunk Observability Cloud, DevOps and IT teams get the benefit of a unified interface that helps to keep track of all their application monitoring data that comes from sources such as app metrics, traces and logs. This data is collected in real-time at any scale, Splunk said. “With the shift to cloud, IT and DevOps teams are now wrestling with more operational complexity that is compounded by too many existing monitoring tools that have blind spots, siloed data and disjointed workflows,” said Splunk Chief Product Officer Sendur Sellakumar. “The Splunk Observability Cloud helps IT and DevOps teams conquer complexity and accelerate cloud transformation for their organizations.” IT observability is an emerging market segment that’s rapidly becoming a big deal for many enterprises. It involves monitoring apps so that operators can identify the root cause of any issues that crop up and resolve them quickly. Other players in the observability segment include Sumo Logic Inc., DataDog Inc., and also Amazon Web Services Inc., which yesterday launched its Amazon DevOps Guru product. With its history rooted in big data and infrastructure and application log intelligence, Splunk sees observability as a natural target for its own expertise. Splunk said its Observability Cloud combines its Splunk Infrastructure Monitoring, Splunk Application Monitoring, Splunk On-Call, Splunk Real User Monitoring, Splunk Synthetic Monitoring and Splunk Log Observer offerings into a single product. The last three tools are all new products being made generally available today.

Pocket Network ‘AWS for Web3’ Shakes Up the Internet Infrastructure

Pocket Network | January 15, 2022

On January 14th, Pocket Network crossed the milestone of 20,000 full-nodes in more than 23 countries. The infrastructure protocol that facilitates decentralized cloud computing and abundant bandwidth on full nodes interoperable with DApps across all 21+ blockchains, doubling down its market-based approach to providing this vital service by incentivizing a global community of independent node operators who are running more than 20 thousand (21K) contributed machines adding resilience into the network. The Pocket Network is an infrastructure-level solution that minimizes downtime by decentralizing work and data across 23 countries. It preserves end-user privacy because it doesn't store any information on its servers, instead of utilizing thousands of full nodes for distributed storage purposes. The company Pocket Network is undergoing exponential growth as demand for its network measured in API calls or relays jumped to 5.78 billion in the last December. It rose to this mark from 44% in November 2021. "Pocket is the First Mover, changing the game as the core infrastructure for the Web3 revolution. For those that are seeking the next high growth first mover like AWS or Ethereum, you can see transparently on-chain the parabolic growth of actual usage and of actual revenues of the Pocket Network. The metrics have been super impressive and we look forward to the scaling 2022 will bring." Omer Ozden, CEO of RockTree Capital Michael O'Rourke, CEO at Pocket Network, said at the event, "There is increased investment in public, open-source infrastructure through crypto networks that continue to chip away at the dominance of today's providers, reducing them to commodities. Our attractive economic flywheel model for our network is simple and naturally drives growth - attractive node running incentives add more nodes which in turn creates more redundancy and better DApp service experience, more DApp usage then generates more node revenue." Pocket is an organization that strives to create a more inclusive and decentralized internet. They do this by encouraging niche cloud providers, which have been less viable over the last decade because of massive well-known incumbents dominating traditional markets with their low prices for bandwidth or storage space but high-quality service delivery.
