THREE STAGES OF THE CLOUD-NATIVE JOURNEY
The adoption of cloud services, DevOps practices, and ephemeral architectures has been proven to significantly accelerate the pace of innovation, as well as response times to errors and bugs – but becoming cloud-native won’t happen overnight.
Your business will progress through the cloud-native journey in three distinct stages – each with its own challenges and areas of focus. SignalFx has all of the capabilities to help guide your every step.
Stage 3 – Organized Enablement
Companies at this stage have built a centralized core of best practices around platform technologies that development teams opt into, while still satisfying individual requirements. They often are running full production microservices, take an “immutable infrastructure” approach that uses containers or serverless computing, and use orchestration frameworks like Kubernetes that enable automated remediation. Many of these companies also have teams dedicated specifically to monitoring and observability for the entire organization.
What’s required is a monitoring system that can leverage automation to keep up with high-velocity software releases, provide analytics capabilities that easily process millions of data points with sophisticated algorithms capable of driving automated remediation, and help teams understand how application health relates to business health.
