Discover a centralized approach to monitor your virtual infrastructure, on-premise IT environment, and cloud infrastructure – all on a single platform.

Platform as a Service (PaaS) can give you the ultimate in productivity - you focus on writing the differentiated code that your application needs to be successful, while not worrying about boilerplate services, and system administration. Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) typically provides vanilla virtual machines - you have the ultimate in flexibility, but you also take on significant configuration and management responsibilities. This talk will explore how we find the sweet spot on the continuum between these two models to provide both the productivity and flexibility you desire.

Learn how to auto-discover your containers and monitor their performance, capture Docker host and container metrics to allocate host resources, and provision containers.
