Craftsy Case Study

Craftsy Case Study: Getting started with the VictorOps Transmogrifier

By Samantha Haltman

When VictorOps launched the Transmogrifier private beta program last November, Craftsy was eager to see what the feature was capable of. For this case study, we spoke with David Palma, DevOps Engineer at Craftsy, to hear what he had to say about his experience…

“Rule creation for this feature was extremely straight forward”

“VictorOps beat us to the punch.”

When we found out about the new Transmogrifier feature, we were actually in the process of building something similar internally. We realized there was a serious disconnect between the alerts coming in, and the information available surrounding the alert. Implementing the Transmogrifier provided exactly what we were looking for with regards to annotations, and saved us a lot of time since we didn’t have to build this functionality ourselves.

Contextual awareness is half the battle.

Prior to implementing the Transmogrifier, I would get woken up for an alert and have no idea what it was, or what was needed to solve the problem. I would have to open 3 or 4 different tabs to try and wrap my head around the situation. Now with the Transmogrifier’s annotations, I save a good 5-10 minutes of trying to search for all the necessary documentation. There is no longer stress associated with having to obtain information from disparate places, and this has been extremely beneficial for the team.

Processes are getting better.

When we started using the Transmogrifier, our primary goal was to be proactive and annotate out the documentation and graphs we already had available. As we continue to build rules and increase our usage of this feature, we’re making sure to be reactive as well. If an issue arises that we don’t have proper documentation for, we go back and add the appropriate graphs and contextual information. We want to ensure all gaps are filled and the next person who experiences the issue will know exactly what to do.

In short…

With annotations available on desktop as well as mobile, the Transmogrifier has helped alleviate a lot of stress associated with our day-to-day on-call responsibilities.

As you know, enterprise IT conversation over the past year have often centered upon the open-source Kubernetes container orchestration system. In fact, Kubernetes has emerged as the key technology -- and even primary platform -- of cloud migrations for a wide variety of organizations. Kubernetes is critical to forward-looking enterprises that continue to push their IT infrastructures toward maximum functionality, scalability, and flexibility. As they do so, IT professionals are also embracing the reality of Serverless architectures, which are critical to developing and operating real-time applications and services. Serverless is particularly important as enterprises of all sizes develop and deploy Internet of Things (IoT) initiatives.
