Kubernetes allows development teams to move their application workloads without having to redesign their applications or completely rethink their infrastructure thus providing flexibility and the ability to standardize on a platform. However, as you start to operate your Kubernetes environments at scale, it becomes more complex and requires special focus on monitoring for performance and health.

Join this webinar to discover how to proactively approach the health and performance monitoring of your Kubernetes environments—at any scale and at any level of complexity. You will also discover tools you can use to get useful answers to fundamental questions, such as “What is the health of my cluster?” and “What is the hierarchy of the elements within my cluster?”

Attendees will learn how to:

  • Obtain infrastructure and application-centric views into your clusters to understand overall K8 health and capacity
  • Improve troubleshooting and issue resolution by monitoring dynamic behavior in your clusters (i.e. new deployments, autoscaling, health checks)
  • Create an Amazon EKS Cluster and Nodes with Kubernetes integration
  • Perform end-to-end distributed tracing of running microservices
