About this Episode

Playtech describes itself as the world’s largest online gambling software supplier. It has achieved monumental growth to bolster its leading position in gaming software by largely relying on the creativity of its DevOps teams around the world.

Needless to say, givings its developers and operations teams such freedom could come at a price, as managing the data and input of such as widespread and far-reaching DevOps structure would, for many companies, end in chaos.

In this episode of The New Stack Makers podcast, Aleksandr Tavgen, technical architect, for Playtech described how the Isle of Man-based company has succeeded in achieving what the company says is “full observability” of Playtech’s operations platform thanks largely to InfluxDB 2.0, Flux and the OpenTracingAPI.
