Let's Design An Agile Monitoring Solution For The Containerized OpenStack
Cloud providers are moving toward a new deployment method that is using container technology. The objective is to replace the inflexible, painful, resource-intensive deployment process of the cloud infrastructure with a flexible, painless, inexpensive deployment process. For instance, OpenStack uses the Kolla project to foster the effort and has already reached a mature level which can be used in production. The new software architecture changes how services are connected together. That exposes the cloud platform to many new challenges including resource provision, performance, failure management etc. Therefore, to guarantee the availability and stability of the containerized system, monitoring features have to be considered thoroughly. This presentation discusses many aspects of such agile, plug-and-play, and practical monitoring system.
