Collaborative Notebooks for DevOps and SRE with Micha Hernandez

The complexity of the software infrastructure has been increasing as companies have migrated towards kubernetes, containers, microservices and other distributed systems. However the tools around observability and monitoring have not seen much improvement. These tools are usually managed by teams distributed across different locations and time zones, which results in siloing of knowledge of your infrastructure across individuals.
Reasoning about downtime involves bringing together all the pieces. While the teams can communicate through slack, screenshots and google docs, this has been still far from the kind of collaboration tools that other teams have enjoyed for example Figma is used by Design teams and Notion is used by product teams.
Fiberplane is a collaborative notebook platform for DevOps and SRE. It puts a programmable SRE environment at the fingertips of engineers, redefining collaboration for infrastructure teams. Fiberplane offers collaborative investigation and documentation tools with real data, all hosted within a technical open-source notebook format. Micha Hernandez van Leuffen is the founder and CEO of Fiberplane and he joins us today.
