A fundamental challenge for the reliability of distributed systems is the ability to observe and understand dependencies among components. The blindness from not understanding service dependencies is costly. A new category of products is emerging to address the observability challenges across services.
Netsil and the Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) announced that Netsil has joined the foundation as a Silver member. CNCF sustains and integrates open source technologies like Kubernetes and Netsil’s Application Operations Center (AOC) is an observability and monitoring platform for K8s applications.
In a previous blog, we covered a high-level overview, differences and use cases for Openshift, Tectonic and Vanilla Kubernetes. In this post we will take a deep-dive and evaluate them from perspective of supported environments, storage, networking, Operations and Ecosystem.
