Loris Degioanni, Sysdig: Breakfast and Briefings, AWS re:Invent

Episode Summary

Loris Degioanni, CEO and Founder, Sysdig, offered insight to their company in another interview. Sysdig is a container visibility company building container monitoring and visibility products. Sysdig enables developers to use specific features of Linux to get visibility into a container from inside another. This allows for application monitoring and infrastructure without having to instrument it. One can view what services are running in a particular container and immediately start monitoring it. Sysdig can be deployed on a machine involved in services, with the ability to understand what’s running within a container and better understand the logical relationship between particular services. For example, containers with a web server service using a load balancer, the server itself, and a database need to report as a unity rather than individual services. Sysdig enables developers to keep track of the relationships between these services and report their performance no matter where Amazon allocates and structures it, allowing for cohesive logical application dependency.
