Date: Thursday, August 20th at 11am PDT / 2pm EDT
The Amazon Web Services portfolio is sprawling. Organizations following a DevOps approach for their AWS applications routinely use a handful of products to keep track of the performance and status of dozens of services.
Lost in all the required monitoring of all those disparate services with different tools is "observability" — a full understanding of the health and performance of internal systems and how your system handles the "unknown unknowns" (the things you don't know you don't know).
