Abstract: InfluxData Head of Product Marketing Navdeep Sidhu, in this VMblog article, notes that the shift to container architectures is demonstrating to DevOps teams that legacy monitoring tools are unsuitable for this new deployment architecture. He points out InfluxData’s prediction for 2019 that the move to containerization and Kubernetes will gain further ground, resulting in a number of expected trends. Among them he outlines five key trends: the evolution of metrics and events observability; growth in CX Monitoring beyond monitoring infrastructure and DevOps toolchains; traction for time series platforms; increased need for purpose-built platforms; and additional gained ground for Kubernetes but also the continued presence of workloads operating on non-K8s infrastructure.
