Prometheus, OpenMetrics, and the CNCF Observability Ecosystem - OpenObservability Talks S2E02
Play • 1 hr 10 min

The CNCF has a rich suite to address monitoring Kubernetes and cloud-native workloads. First of which is Prometheus, which is widely adopted, with great out-of-the-box compatibility with Kubernetes. But under the CNCF you can also find OpenMetrics that offers standardization of the metrics format, Thanos and Cortex which offer long-term storage for Prometheus, and other complimentary solutions and integrations.   

On this episode of OpenObservability Talks we’ll host “RichiH” Hartmann and discuss the different OSS projects, the synergy between them, and the future roadmap in building the community and making CNCF a leading offering.  

Richard "RichiH" Hartmann is Director of Community at Grafana Labs, Prometheus team member, OpenMetrics founder, CNCF SIG Observability chair, and other things. He also organizes various conferences, including FOSDEM, DENOG, DebConf, and Chaos Communication Congress. In the past, he made mainframe databases work, ISP backbones run, and built a datacenter from scratch.
