The following is a list of major presentations that Lee has given at various events.
Monitoring applications running in a typical data center is a pretty static process. Monitoring in the cloud is a very different endeavor. Why? The dynamic nature of cloud computing makes keeping track of resources being monitored a non-trivial activity. Additionally, examining the dynamic changes of the cloud environment itself is a valuable tool for detecting and diagnosing problems, yet often is difficult to actually accomplish in a useful and compelling way.
In this session, we will discuss some of the best practices learned both internally at New Relic, and from observing and working with customers, on how you can monitor applications running in this dynamic environment and take advantage of the dynamic nature of the cloud to give you additional insights into your application performance.
What happens when your migration goes sideways? How do you make sure it doesn’t happen again? In this session, we discuss how do migrate your application to the cloud so it doesn’t go sideways. We talk about KPIs, and acceptance criteria. We talk about how to tell when your migration is complete and your system is operating as it should in the cloud. We talk about how to understand what your application is made of, so that you can properly plan and execute your cloud migration.
The team at AWS & MLBAM joined New Relic to tell the story of how we enabled the team at MLB Advanced Media deliver their business on the biggest days in baseball - 25 million fans and a World Series that made history.
Dynamic Infrastructure and the Cloud.
There are two ways that companies use the cloud: The static method is simply to use the cloud as a better data center. The dynamic method is to take full advantage of the dynamic capabilities of the cloud. This involves allocating resources only when necessary, whether those resources are EC2 instances, queues, files, or Lambda functions.
I fly radio controlled model planes. There is an old adage: “Keep your plane at least two mistakes high”. The same applies when building highly available, high scale applications.
How to keep your web application functioning and highly available.
Strategies for adopting the cloud by enterprises. This presentation discusses the process enterprises go through in deciding when and if to move an application to the cloud.
