Abstracts


Proxies, Gateways, and Service Mesh. why are words so confusing? - Abdelfettah Sghiouar

Can you tell the difference between an API Gateway, the API Gateway, and a Gateway? What are Nginx or HAProxy anyway, are they proxies? controllers? CRD’s? resources?

Sometimes it feels like things are named in a certain way to confuse us on purpose. But don’t worry this talk is made for you, to make things simple, we will go back to square zero. We will look at the history of all of these things, where they came from, and what purpose they serve. We will then fast forward into the Cloud Native modern world and you will not be surprised that nothing is new, we are just reusing stuff people used 10, 15, or 20 years ago.

Back to Basics is the other title I could have given this session. You don’t need to have a long experience, you just need to join me and we will reminisce and look into the future.


Why we standardized on OpenTelemetry -Hans Kristian Flaatten

Monitoring systems has always been fragmented, and vendor lock-in is a real issue. This is the story about how the largest branch of the Norwegian Government (NAV) is standardizing on OpenTelemetry to unlock observability data for everyone.

In 2016 NAV started adopting Kubernetes and microservices oriented architecture. This was a big change for the organization, and it was a challenge to monitor the new systems. Prometheus and Grafana were soon after chosen as the preferred monitoring stack, in addition to traditional logging of course. Fast forward to 2023, and NAV has close to 2000 microservices.

At this point NAV does not have a unified way of monitoring systems and it lacks standardization of metrics and logs. The third pillar of observability, Distributed tracing, is completely absent. This makes it hard for developers to understand the flow of requests through the system, and troubleshoot performance issues.

OpenTelemetry is a CNCF project that provides a standard for collecting telemetry data (metrics, logs, and traces) from applications. It has SDKs for all major programming languages, and is a vendor-neutral project supported by all major providers.
