Workshop Stage 1 - Hopin 5
Tuesday, September 29, 2020
As Intuit moves to a cloud hosting architecture that includes containers, and serverless applications, the company is on an “observability” journey to transform the way it monitors its applications' health. Observability requires correlating logs, metrics, distributed traces, etc., which becomes complex as systems become more distributed. In this session, the company discusses leveraging tools such as OpenTelemetry instrumentation , collectors pipeline, scaling Amazon Elasticsearch Service (Amazon ES), Amazon Kinesis, and Jaeger to build an observability solution, and the benefits this solution provides by giving visibility across the platform, from containers to serverless applications. We will also discuss how Intuit sees observability evolving in coming years.
