With Prometheus the talk of KubeCon, CloudNativeCon, and last week's GrafanaCon, there can be no denying the fact that monitoring has become a focus for today’s enterprises. For those operating on a smaller scale or at a startup, choosing the right monitoring solution can not only save money, but can result in considerable benefits to overall workflow efficiency, allowing available resources to be better put to use elsewhere.
For API migration and integration platform ShuttleCloud, there was never a ‘switch’ to Prometheus. Having a team roughly 15-17 employees, the small team originally planned on cycling through monitoring solutions until finding one that clicked. Once they got Prometheus up and running, they never got around to trying another monitoring solution. On today's episode of The New Stack Makers, TNS Founder Alex Williams spoke with ShuttleCloud Software Developers Ignacio Pérez Carretero during KubeCon 2016 to hear more about ShuttleCloud’s experience working with Prometheus in production and their decision to migrate their stack over to Kubernetes.
