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

I can’t say I was entirely surprised when I saw a direct correlation between people who played Magic: The Gathering growing up and people who work in the DevOps space now. I loved Magic: The Gathering growing up and so did most of my co-workers. Building out decks, trading cards, and finding the perfect combinations to destroy my opponents were all what made the game worth while to us.

If you are anything like me, you still flip through your old deck every now and again reminiscing on the good ol’ days of mountain dew and pizza bagels. But alas, we are adults, we work in IT and Magic: The Gathering has for many of us (not all) become a nostalgic memory fondly remembered.

What do we say to the god of death? Not Today! So I starting building out a DevOps Set and thought you might enjoy it.

GitHub Library Master Kim
Jez The Humble Monk (1) Docker (2)
DevOps (1) Continuous Delivery

This was super fun and I encourage you to build your own DevOps Set cards (post them to @XebiaLabs on Twitter), I want to see all of your creativity. Enjoy.

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