Two of the themes Velocity is focusing on this year are “reimagining infrastructure” and “measuring the right things." The container orchestration system Kubernetes is a big player in the former, while the monitoring and alerting system Prometheus is extremely helpful to accomplish the latter. It shouldn’t surprise you that the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) has accepted Prometheus as its second hosted project after Kubernetes. Each project alone is of great importance for “born in the cloud” applications. However, it gets really interesting when you combine the two.
Björn Rabenstein explores how Kubernetes and Prometheus work together. Björn had an important role in bringing up Prometheus at SoundCloud. With more than seven years at Google under his belt, he is also quite familiar with the technologies that served as an inspiration for both Kubernetes and Prometheus. Björn explains how this beautiful friendship is possible despite the projects’ independent developments and outlines the top five reasons why the two play so nicely together.
