Introducing Grafana Cloud k6: unified performance testing and observability

Organizations use load and performance testing to prevent issues from impacting customers, which is essential if they want to stay relevant in today’s digital-first world. And with the rise of cloud native technology and DevOps, software teams must shift performance testing left, towards development. However, traditional load and performance testing tools simply haven’t kept pace, leaving developers, operations, and QA teams siloed.

The role of Data Observability in the single source of truth

Recently I read a very informative article by Stephen Catanzano in Tech Target (Avoid data sprawl with a single source of truth). To be honest, this is an age-old challenge, and it's getting worse. IDC states that by 2025 the global datasphere will grow to 175 Zeta bytes and that 90% of the data in the world is a replica. Why does this matter? As Stephen points out in his article, a single source of truth is a fundamental concept in data management.


5 Reasons Why All the Hype Around Observability is True

Almost every organization needs a top-notch monitoring system to make sure everything is in place and operating at its best, given the developments in the cloud and changing software development life cycle (SDLC) processes. Observability is one of the significant areas that can guarantee your system’s health and ensures that the performance is visible and monitored properly.


What Is the Difference Between Observability and Monitoring?

The practice of DevOps — development operations — has taken organizations by storm. According to a 2021 report by Redgate Software, 74 percent of enterprises surveyed say they now use DevOps in some form or fashion, compared with just 47 percent in 2016. DevOps practitioners seek to improve the software development lifecycle by fostering closer collaboration between developers and IT operations teams.


Why Observability is Key to App Modernization and Increase Business Resilience

The performance and resilience of an application are used to measure the speed and scale of an organization. This is one of the key reasons businesses opt to modernize legacy applications using cloud-native technologies and platforms. According to a Gartner report, more than 95% of new digital efforts would be built on cloud-native platforms by 2025, up from less than 40% in 2021.
