Cloud Season Stop 3: AWS Summit in San Francisco

What happens when 6,000 cloud technology enthusiasts descend on San Francisco’s Moscone Center? You get the biggest Amazon show to ever hit the Bay Area.

April 4th is the day — as the cloud happy masses come together in downtown San Francisco to learn about the latest cloud, container, microservice and serverless technologies. It’s going to be a busy day in San Francisco as over 6,000 cloud enthusiasts flock to the AWS Summit to learn about best practices for building, deploying and monitoring applications leveraging cloud technologies. Containers and Kubernetes will also be hot topics!

Speaking of optimizing performance and monitoring applications – Instana’s team of APM aficionados will be on the ground chatting with the cloud community about what’s new in the APM world and how AI-Powered APM is key to discovering, analyzing, and monitoring Amazon Web Services and the applications built on top of them.

Feeling like you need some first-class monitoring support with your hybrid application environment, legacy, containers and cloud-native services? Visit Instana at Booth #1121 for a quick demo of our APM and Infrastructure monitoring solution, and while you’re at it, take a Squeezy Stan and limited-edition Stan sticker with you!

Because we’re monitoring nerds, we took a look at the agenda and found these great sessions to attend:

  • The Future of IT
  • Preparing Your Team for a Cloud Transformation
  • Architectures and Strategies for Building Modern Applications on AWS
  • Containerized App Development with AWS Fargate
  • Serverless Reactive Microservices on AWS
