Please join us for our July 2019 Meetup with Kenneth Tan, Sardina Systems, talking about why "Cloud Health" does not equal "Cloud Monitoring".

Maintaining enterprise cloud health is a key challenge in ensuring user trust in organizations. However, using traditional enterprise monitoring tools may not be enough. Traditional enterprise monitoring is looking for alive/dead states which would thus only allow you, as an Operator, to take action after the fact. Sure, operators can define thresholds as "dead" states, to trigger alerts. But if we apply similar schemes to the actual health of human beings, for example, defining sneezing as a "dead" state, we would end up with lots of sneezing people 6 ft underground.
How can we deal with this? How can we actually deal with cloud system health, not simply alive/dead states only? Would it make a difference to help the operator to prevent critical problems from happening?
