Unifying Observability with OpenTelemetry Collector and Operator


Jan 9, 4:30 – 6:00 PM

Hybrid event

About this event

Join our meetup to delve into observability, emphasizing the OpenTelemetry Collector and the OpenTelemetry Operator. It provides insights into vendor-agnostic approaches for managing observability data effectively and efficiently.

The session will commence with an exploration of the OpenTelemetry Collector, a unified, vendor-neutral platform for receiving, processing, and exporting observability data, thus eliminating the need for multiple agents or collectors and emphasizing its scalability and compatibility with various open-source observability data formats such as Jaeger, Prometheus, and Fluent Bit.

We will also take a deep dive into the OpenTelemetry Operator, discussing its implementation within the Kubernetes framework, its management of the OpenTelemetry Collector, and its role in the automatic instrumentation of workloads using OpenTelemetry libraries.

Don't miss this opportunity to expand your knowledge and network with like-minded professionals.
