Multi-cluster observability with Kubernetes, Linkerd, and Thanos

March 20, 2019

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.

Andrew Seigner is a Software Engineer at Buoyant, the makers of Linkerd. Andrew’s current focus has been on observability and telemetry in Buoyant’s next-generation service mesh. Previously Andrew worked at Twitter and Gracenote.
