As companies race to the cloud and adopt DevOps culture as part of that process, it's becoming more apparent that the word "monitoring" has a significantly different meaning within the walls of a data center than it does in the DevOps huddle area. But what, if anything, is actually different? Or is it all just jargon and an attitude of not invented here (NIH).


In my panel discussion, 'When DevOps Says "Monitor,"' I will be joined by Nathen Harvey, VP of Community Development at Chef, Michael Cote, Director of Technical Marketing at Pivotal, and Clinton Wolfe, cloud architect and DevOps practice lead (and current "hero for hire" seeking his next adventure). In our conversation, we'll break down expectations, and yes, even bad (monitoring) habits in the DevOps world in a way that will make a traditional monitoring engineer feel right at home.

 

Because it was so successful last year, we are continuing our expanded-session, two-day, two-track format for THWACKcamp 2017. SolarWinds product managers and technical experts will guide attendees through how-to sessions designed to shed light on new challenges, while Head Geeks and IT thought leaders will discuss, debate, and provide context for a range of industry topics.

 

In our 100% free, virtual, multi-track IT learning event, thousands of attendees will have the opportunity to hear from industry experts and SolarWinds Head Geeks, such as myself, and technical staff. Registrants also get to interact with each other to discuss topics related to emerging IT challenges, including automation, hybrid IT, DevOps, and more.
