Recorded June 15, 2022

Join Us for a Complimentary Live Webinar Sponsored by Era Software

Getting insights from observability data such as logs and metrics is essential for managing cloud services reliably. However, managing massive observability data volumes can be expensive and complex. Luckily observability data pipelines can help IT handle large data volumes and reduce costs by processing, routing, and filtering data across teams, tools, and storage options. Should you build your own or buy?

Join Todd Persen, CEO and co-founder of Era Software, who previously co-founded Influx Data, to hear about observability data pipelines. Todd will:

  • Introduce observability data pipelines and common challenges for dealing with massive data volumes and distributed tools
  • Explain how to build and scale data pipelines efficiently
  • Help you get started
