A Different Monitoring Philosophy with Costa Tsaousis

Observability is becoming an increasingly competitive space in the software world. Many developers have heard of Datadog and New Relic, but there are a seemingly countless number of observability products out there.
Costa Tsaousis (he/him) is the Founder and CEO of Netdata. His goal was to build an open-source platform that was high-resolution, real-time, and easily scalable. Netdata is the result. It’s relatively new to the crowded observability space, but it’s grown into a major presence. Costa joins the show to talk about the design philosophy of Netdata, and how it inverts a common observability design pattern.
