We make improvements to StackState every single day. 

 

But, it would be kind of annoying if we told you every single day about all of the new stuff we’re doing at StackState, so that’s what this post is all about. A recap where we fill you in on everything that’s new inside of StackState from the last couple of months.

 

OK, let’s get to it - here’s what you need to know.

8 Predictions for DevOps in 2017

Posted by Joey Compeer on Mar 8, 2017 11:52:31 AM

 

The past year was good for DevOps: we saw more enterprise adoption of containers and more companies throwing their hats into the container ring. We sat down with our friends from XebiaLabs – Andrew Phillips, Tim Buntel, and TJ Randall – and asked what they think the future has in store for the DevOps world of 2017.

 

1. A new wave of “next gen platform” projects is coming.

In 2017, we’ll see a new wave of “next gen platform” projects focused on container orchestration frameworks such as Kubernetes, and re-tooled PaaS platforms such as OpenShift or Cloud Foundry. Acceptance of the need for a cross-machine resource management and scheduling framework is growing, and the vendor ecosystem is rapidly throwing weight behind this movement. There will also be an increased shift away from defining containers directly, and more towards having containers generated automatically where necessary.

Product update: here's what's new from January

Posted by Joey Compeer on Feb 21, 2017 3:16:42 PM

 

We make big improvements to StackState every single day. Keeping you updated about these results on a day-to-day basis could become somewhat annoying, so that's where this monthly post fits in: a summary to share all our latest improvements and newest features.


During the last few weeks StackState has seen some huge improvements, so it’s time to catch you up on all the cool stuff we made last month. Let get right to it…

 

Mesos integration

Monitoring your containerized infrastructure can be challenging. Containers move and change so frequently, that it’s more difficult to get an overview of your container landscape – especially at scale.

Let Operational Analytics improve your business

Posted by Joey Compeer on Nov 22, 2016 5:10:24 PM

 

Products and services are getting smarter. The Google Car can drives itself. Your phone knows how to take the best selfie and it even tells you when to leave to be on time for that important meeting. The systems that runs these services are able to use and understand data in a very smart way. Now it's time for IT operations to get smarter.

 

Today's DevOps teams lack the ability to use data of different systems in a smart way. They don't have advanced, data-science-driven technologies to see what's happening in their stack, to see what changed, to trouble shoot on issues and to understand the relations and dependencies between all the applications and systems in the stack.

An answer to the alert storm: introducing Team View Alerts

Posted by Joey Compeer on Jul 18, 2016 3:42:28 PM

 

As a Dev or Ops it’s hard to focus on the things that really matter. Applications, systems, tools and other environments are generating notifications at a frequency and amount greater than you are able to deal with. It's a problem for every Dev and Ops professional.

 

Alerts are used to identify trends, spikes or dips in your metrics and events – for example to detect low free memory, high page-fault errors or unavailable database servers. With the right alerts in place you can get notifications or signals of problems before they escalate or respond quickly before it takes a business service down which could affect your customers.
