Containers and microservice architectures simplify the development process, provide environmental consistency and speed updates; however, there are operational trade-offs. The ephemeral nature combined with API-centric communications results in a massive increase in objects, dependencies and metrics – challenging traditional monitoring approaches, including: topology mapping, instrumentation, and static baselining and alerting. New monitoring techniques and approaches are now needed to gain visibility and control over these dynamic platforms across the application lifecycle.


Join a conversation with Kieran Taylor, Senior Director of Product and Solutions Marketing at CA Technologies to understand:

  • What new monitoring, analytics and alerting techniques are best suited for containers.
  • Why an open data model is key to understanding and tracking microservice dependencies.
  • How to establish monitoring across the entire application lifecycle to increase development speed and quality.
