Cloud Native Persistent Observability with Thanos

Submitted Feb 13, 2019

Observability for cloud-native workloads with Prometheus is the de-facto standard now. The next challenge in the space are high-availability, data de-duplication, data persistence and centrally monitoring multi-cluster workloads with the ability to do historical queries.

Thanos steps into this space and tries to address all by cleverly extending promethes’ features and using the power of cloud storage APIs.
