K8s Troubleshooting with Itiel Shwartz

Cloud native applications utilizing microservice architectures has grown into one of the most popular application architectural patterns in recent years. The value of leveraging dynamic cloud resources, along with the flexibility and scalability of microservice architectures, creates a strong paradigm that’s hard to miss. The strong adoption of Kubernetes has strengthened the pattern enormously. The unique structure and requirements of Kubernetes has led to an increased need for Kubernetes specific monitoring and diagnostics tools. There has been a large number of companies who have jumped at this opportunity. One of those companies is Komodor, a Kubernetes diagnostics platform that focuses on Kubernetes troubleshooting for the entire Kubernetes stack. Itiel Shwartz is the co-founder and CTO of Komodor, and he joins us today.
