Eduardo Silva, Fluentd/Treasure Data

A project within the Cloud Native Computing Foundation, Fluentd is focused on logging, pulling together data from a variety of sources and sending it to a back-end. Eduardo Silva spoke with me at CloudNativeCon in Berlin about Fluentd and its flexible architecture for plug-ins. Fluentd is widely used for tasks like aggregating mobile stats and to understand how games are behaving.

Miek Gieben, CoreDNS

CoreDNS, which provides cloud-native DNS server and service discovery, recently joined the CNCF. In this podcast Miek provides  context about DNS and explains how today’s more dynamic environments aren’t always a good match with traditional approaches to DNS. Miek takes us through how CoreDNS came to be and discusses some possible future paths that it might take.

Björn Rabenstein, Prometheus/SoundCloud

Bjorn Rabenstein of SoundCloud sat down with me at CloudNativeCon in Berlin to discuss Prometheus, the first project to be brought into the Cloud Native Computing Foundation after Kubernetes. Prometheus is a popular open-source monitoring system with a dimensional data model, flexible query language, efficient time series database and modern alerting approach. In this podcast, we get into the background behind Prometheus, why new monitoring tools are needed for cloud-native, and when you should wake people up with an alert--and when you shouldn't.

Sarah Novotny, Kubernetes/Google

Sarah Novotny does open source community for Google Cloud and is also the program manager of the Kubernetes community. She has years of experience in open source communities including MySQL and NGINX. In the podcast we cover the challenges inherent in shifting from a company-led project to a community-led one, principles that can lead to more successful communities, and how to structure decision-making.

I’ve written an article with excerpts from this podcast which will appear on opensource.com. I’ll link to it from here when it’s available.
