Monitoring the Dynamic Cloud [Video]

The cloud can bring enhanced agility to apps, but it also poses challenges to monitoring performance and ensuring they only consume what they need. You can fix that.

Using the cloud to “build a better data center” is only the beginning, explained Lee Atchison, New Relic’s principal cloud architect in his talk at FutureStack16 San Francisco, titled “Monitoring the Dynamic Nature of the Cloud: How Docker and the Cloud Bring Your Application to Life.”

Cloud computing’s biggest benefits, Lee said, come not in this static cloud model, but in the dynamic cloud model that promises to let you create dynamic apps that consume only the resources they need, when they need them, and de-allocate them as soon as they’re no longer needed. That brings new agility, as well as the ability to scale far more efficiently. But this fast-moving dynamic model also creates new monitoring challenges.
