How Dashbird Atlas Accelerates Serverless Observability

Share When it comes to serverless applications, their distributed nature of exponential scalability and use of potentially thousands of resources automatically begs the need for observability. Using the mass data output of an application to understand and optimize the internal states is a game-changing strategy, but only if used well. Dashbird Atlas takes serverless observability to a new level, reducing excessive noise through simple visualization of your application.

Monitoring and Tracing GraphQL AWS AppSync Applications

Creating applications or even platforms that can scale up to the amount of traffic you receive–no matter what that means–is not as easy as slapping a few microservices together and hoping for the best. There are several practices and complementary activities you need to perform to have a successfully scalable architecture. In this article, we’ll cover one of these activities: the monitoring and tracing of AWS AppSync APIs that serve content from multiple data sources.

Monitoring Best Practices: Microservices Health Checks

Microservices have been on the rise along with an increasing number of containers that are being used in the industry. Because of this, IT professionals must change their approach to microservices health checks. In the world of monolithic architecture, the primary goal is to monitor at the system level. This is still needed for microservices, but you need to go one step further and monitor the service itself.

Azure Monitor Tutorial: Getting Started

Azure Monitor is a comprehensive solution that can be used for collecting and analyzing data from your applications and services. It is adept at collecting monitoring data, which is then analyzed to let you know the performance of your applications and identify issues if any. Azure Monitor proactively monitors the performance, availability, and usage of your applications and services irrespective of whether such applications or services are hosted on Azure or on-premises.

How to build an application in minutes with AWS Amplify

Serverless haters usually come up with the argument of “there are still servers behind”. Although they are categorically right about the “secret” servers, what serverless implies is not about the existence of servers but harmony of developing applications without thinking about servers behind. It can be considered as how we perceive wireless, we don’t discuss if there are wires behind but instead enjoy the comfort of wireless, right.

Dangers of Console-Driven Development

AWS offers the ability to login to a web UI dashboard. In this dashboard, you can add, edit, and deploy various cloud resources. When I was first getting started with AWS, this is where I began for two reasons: My very first full-time job as a Software Engineer was on a small enough team that all of our infrastructure was setup using the AWS console in a single AWS account.
