The brutal truth about digital performance engineering and operations

Pure Performance

Andreas (aka Andi) Grabner and Brian Wilson are veterans of the digital performance world. Combined they have seen too many applications not scaling and performing up to expectations. With more rapid deployment models made possible through continuous delivery and a mentality shift sparked by DevOps they feel it’s time to share their stories. In each episode, they and their guests discuss different topics concerning performance, ranging from common performance problems for specific technology platforms to best practices in development, testing, deploying and monitoring software performance and user experience. Be prepared to learn a lot about metrics.

Andi & Brian both work at Dynatrace, where they get to witness more real-world customer performance issues than they can TPS report at.

Performance Engineering for Hybrid Cloud re-platforming with Klaus Kierer

When moving to the cloud – have you thought of the performance difference between App Gateway and Application Load Balancers? The disk speed and disk cache limitations impacting Cassandra and or Elasticsearch Performance? Challenges with pre-built containers or resource limits on pods impacting Java Garbage Collection behavior?

These are all performance considerations Klaus Kierer, Senior Software Engineer in the Cluster Performance Engineering Team at Dynatrace, has learned over the past months as he helped performance optimize the Dynatrace Platform as it was expanded from running on AWS Compute to run on Kubernetes hosted in Azure (AKS) or Google Cloud (GKE).

Listen in and learn why Performance Engineering is more important than ever as you are moving your workloads to the “hyper-hybrid-cloud”.
