Strava uses Linkerd to avoid service outages

Strava has been running Linkerd in production for over a year, and almost every internal app uses it for service discovery and routing. From incident response workflows to candidate deployments, Linkerd plays an integral part throughout Strava’s infrastructure stack. In this talk, J Evans, Infrastructure Engineer at Strava will describe Strava’s real-world use case for Linkerd. He will describe how they use Linkerd’s Prometheus and Statsd integrations to respond to service outages, and how these observability tools along with other Linkerd features can even be used to avoid such outages in the first place.

How Planet Uses Linkerd For Monitoring Satellite Data

Kubernetes can handle dying nodes and failing pods, but it can’t help when your application returns failure errors, slows down, or suffers from a sudden spike in traffic. In this talk, Nic Cope from Planet Labs, deep dives into how CNCF’s service mesh, Linkerd and Prometheus provide cluster wide visibility analytics for Planet Labs global network of micro-satellites. With these analytics, Nik’s team is able to monitoring latency and service failure for all events.

Multi-cluster observability with Kubernetes, Linkerd, and Thanos

Uniform observability across polyglot applications can be challenging, even more so across multiple clusters. In this talk, Andrew Seigner from the Linkerd team will demonstrate adding observability to applications across multiple Kubernetes clusters with zero code changes, and then using Thanos to enable observability across all clusters in one unified view. This talk will outline how Linkerd uses Prometheus to provide zero-config observability for applications running in Kubernetes, and how Thanos enables observability to scale across any number of Prometheus instances.
