PurePerformance Cafes are short interviews with practitioners and thought leaders from around the globe. We found it a great way to get introduced to a new topic or just learn what others are doing in their day-to-day job to contribute to better quality and high performing software.
Cafe 057: What is Istio and what monitoring use cases we see at Dynatrace with Alois Mayr
Alois Mayr gives us a great overview of Istio, why it is such a hot topic right now and he covers the key use cases offered by its core component Envoy: traffic routing, deployment automation, secure communication, logging and monitoring.
Alois is Product Manager for Kubernetes at Dynatrace and therefore always trying to drive the product forward to support use cases our customers are demanding. This includes: what’s happening within Istio istelf? Does it impact latency between services? How about code-level and not just request level visibility? Our users also demand end user monitoring as well as the ability to support full stack and cross platform. If you want to learn more also check out this blog from Adam who covered his learnings from Google NEXT 2018.
Cafe 056: Dynatrace Architecture Explained with Ernst Ambichl
In a recent meetup I saw Ernst Ambichl, Chief Product Architect at Dynatrace, talk about the Dynatrace architecture, how the requirements impacted some of the decisions and how Dynatrace now supports thousands of hosts on a single Dynatrace tenant (SaaS or Managed). I got to chat with Ernst to recap the highlights of the Dynatrace architecture and how he and his team uses Dynatrace in their daily development work to ensure a scalable, reliable and high performing monitoring solution for all Dynatrace customers, partners and trial users!
Cafe 055: Security by Design leads to Creating Secure Software!
Security is a hot topic – but not always that interesting for the regular developer who just wants to write new functionality. Daniel Deogun (@DanielDeogun) and Daniel Sawano (@DanielSawano)– two speakers I just met at Devoxx Poland – are advocating for Security by Design which not only ensures more secure software but is also appealing to developers. Listen in and learn about the key security principles and how to enforce them and make sure to watch out for their book which will be released later this year.
