Monitoring is one of the hot topics when we talk about cloud-native architectures. Prometheus is a graduated Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) open-source project and one of the industry-standard solutions when it comes to monitoring your cloud-native deployment, especially when Kubernetes is involved.

KEDA provides a rich environment to scale your application apart from the traditional HPA approach using CPU and Memory

Autoscaling is one of the great things of cloud-native environments and helps us to provide an optimized use of the operations. Kubernetes provides many options to do that being one of those the Horizontal Pod Autoscaler (HPA) approach.

Sometimes those metrics are not enough to decide if the number of replicas we have available is enough. …

Event-Driven architecture provides more agility to meet the changes of a more demanding customer ecosystem.

When we are talking about applications deployed on the cloud one of the key things is Configuration Management. Especially if we include into the mix things like Kubernetes, Containers, External Configuration Management System things got tricky.

This is the newsletter that brings to you a curated selection of interesting articles about cloud native architectures. In this week issue we cover the increasing the usage of private clouds inside the organisations, the important role of services meshes in your architecture and we introduce Loki a new project from Gafana Labs team to provide a different perspective to the Log Management.
