About this event

Hey everyone!

It's been a while, but we're finally having another Berlin Prometheus Meetup! This time it will happen on July 11 at the OptioPay office and we will have two talks.

The schedule is:

18:30 - 19:00 - Arrival, food and drinks, networking

19:00 - 20:30 - Talks

First talk: Prometheus 2.0 Storage (Goutham Veeramachaneni)


Orchestration systems such as Kubernetes are rapidly gaining traction and unlock features of highly dynamic environments, such as frequent rolling updates and auto-scaling, for everyone. This causes the number of series to blow up, putting new strains on Prometheus’ one-file-per-series data layout. This talk will be laying out the problems with the 1.0 storage and how the new storage engine, built from the ground up, solves them while also producing a sharp increase in performance. Storage 2.0 also has additional features, like granular, time-ranged deletes and live backups whose implementation would be discussed.


Goutham is a student and a developer from India. He likes Ops more than Dev and Go more than all! His enthusiasm for Ops got him an internship on the infra team of a large company last summer where he worked on Production infrastructure and built the company's monitoring system on top of Prometheus.
That was his first encounter with production systems and Prometheus, and recently he started contributing to Prometheus again and is now interning with CoreOS, working on Prometheus' new storage engine.

Second talk: Prometheus @ Deutsche Bahn (Jan Willies)


Deutsche Bahn has a network of thousands of railway stations in Germany, and each has up to dozens of displays to help traveler information. In this session we’ll dive in how Deutsche Bahn makes us of Prometheus to monitor their physical and virtual infrastructure.


Jan Willies is a Technical Architect at Accenture leading the Kubernetes practice. In his spare time he likes to build (mostly) useful things with embedded systems or going for a long run.

Hope to see you all there!
