Logentries Launches Free Logging for Docker Community | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

'The integration between Logentries and Docker is seamless'

Logentries, the leading provider of scalable, real-time log management and analytics, has launched a free log management and analytics service available exclusively for the Docker Community. As a Docker Technology Partner, Logentries newest offering will ease the transition many organizations are facing as they migrate to container environments. Logentries elastic solution provides a free and flexible way to get up and running with Docker monitoring easily and cost-effectively. The Logentries service for Docker includes free logging for Docker deployments, automatically supporting up to 100 containers, and removing cost as an obstacle to building new services on the Docker technology. Docker users are provided with a complimentary, all-access 30-day Logentries premium trial (including advanced features and unlimited data), and a free perpetual account for easy log centralization, search and monitoring.

"The integration between Logentries and Docker is seamless," said Nick Andren, Developer, TrackIf. "Tying log data to the containers themselves and visualizing them through the Logentries dashboards have offered insight into the overall heath and behavior of our many testing systems, which is something that we can't get by monitoring within the hosted applications alone."

IT and Dev Ops teams running containers find a lack of deep visibility into container-level performance and activity to be one of the biggest obstacles to managing and optimizing a container environment efficiently. Managing these environments as they scale quickly, and generate unpredictable volumes of log data in varied formats, requires an elastic log collection and real-time monitoring service that easily expands and adapts to changing environments and log data quantities. Logentries flexible offering is built to support fluctuating log volumes and adapt dynamically to varied data types, including container-level log data, Docker API events and host-level events. By offering free and scalable capacity for Docker logging, users are not restricted by cost or capacity, and can quickly understand activity, performance, and trends at the individual container level and across their environment.

"We are launching free logging for the Docker Community because we recognize the role Docker is playing in removing barriers for mass innovation, and believe that log management and analytics can help teams more easily move to a Docker environment," said Trevor Parsons, Chief Scientist, Logentries. "Using Logentries elastic logging service provides a scalable and cost-effective approach to easily understanding and optimizing containers and the broader environments in which containers are running."

The Logentries free Docker Logging plan gives users a flexible, scalable service that can be beneficial for teams developing, testing and deploying Docker. Docker users can collect all of their Docker logs - from Gigabytes to Terabytes - in one place; centralize logs for efficient management and analysis; and search in real-time to pinpoint problems and troubleshoot quickly. To get started with the free Docker Logging offer, users can simply sign-up for a free Logentries account and start sending their Docker log data immediately. Free account users will have all-inclusive access to Logentries for the first 30 days - featuring Live Tail, Dashboards, real-time Tags and Alerts, Anomaly Detection, and more. After the 30-day trial, users can choose to continue using the full service, or switch to the free Docker Logging account that automatically supports up to 100 containers, subject to the Logentries Docker Acceptable Usage Policy, which is intended to prevent individual instances of bandwidth and data processing abuse.

If you are part of the cloud development community, you certainly know about “serverless computing,” almost a misnomer. Because it implies there are no servers which is untrue. However the servers are hidden from the developers. This model eliminates operational complexity and increases developer productivity. We came from monolithic computing to client-server to services to microservices to the serverless model. In other words, our systems have slowly “dissolved” from monolithic to function-by-function. Software is developed and deployed as individual functions – a first-class object and cloud runs it for you. These functions are triggered by events that follow certain rules. Functions are written in a fixed set of languages, with a fixed set of programming models and cloud-specific syntax and semantics. Cloud-specific services can be invoked to perform complex tasks. So for cloud-na...
Kubernetes is an open source system for automating deployment, scaling, and management of containerized applications. Kubernetes was originally built by Google, leveraging years of experience with managing container workloads, and is now a Cloud Native Compute Foundation (CNCF) project. Kubernetes has been widely adopted by the community, supported on all major public and private cloud providers, and is gaining rapid adoption in enterprises. However, Kubernetes may seem intimidating and complex to learn. This is because Kubernetes is more of a toolset than a ready solution. Hence it’s essential to know when and how to apply the appropriate Kubernetes constructs.
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
To enable their developers, ensure SLAs and increase IT efficiency, Enterprise IT is moving towards a unified, centralized approach for managing their hybrid infrastructure. As if the journey to the cloud - private and public - was not difficult enough, the need to support modern technologies such as Containers and Serverless applications further complicates matters. This talk covers key patterns and lessons learned from large organizations for architecting your hybrid cloud in a way that: Supports self-service, "public cloud" experience for your developers that's consistent across any infrastructure. Gives Ops peace of mind with automated management of DR, scaling, provisioning, deployments, etc.
