3 Ways FinTechs Can Improve Cloud Observability at Scale

Financial technology (FinTech) companies today are shaping how consumers will save, spend, invest, and borrow in the economy of the future. But with that innovation comes a critical need for scalable cloud observability solutions that can support FinTech application performance, security, and compliance objectives through periods of exponential customer growth. In this blog, we explore why cloud observability is becoming increasingly vital for FinTech companies and three ways that FinTechs can improve cloud observability at scale.


How to Reduce Continuous Monitoring Costs

Continuous monitoring is a crucial practice in the fields of DevOps, cybersecurity, and compliance. It involves the proactive and ongoing process of observing, assessing, and collecting data from various systems, applications, and infrastructure components in real-time or near real-time. Continuous monitoring is closely related to observability, which goes beyond simple monitoring to provide a deep understanding of complex and dynamic systems.


Observability Pillars: Exploring Logs, Metrics and Traces

The ability to measure the internal states of a system by examining its outputs is called Observability. A system becomes 'observable' when it is possible to estimate the current state using only information from outputs, namely sensor data. You can use the data from Observability to identify and troubleshoot problems, optimize performance, and improve security. In the next few sections, we'll take a closer look at the three pillars of Observability: Metrics, Logs, and Traces.


Customize your data ingestion with Elastic input packages

Elastic® has enabled the collection, transformation, and analysis of data flowing between the external data sources and Elastic Observability Solution through integrations. Integration packages achieve this by encapsulating several components, including agent configuration, inputs for data collection, and assets like ingest pipelines, data streams, index templates, and visualizations. The breadth of these assets supported in the Elastic Stack increases day by day.


The Leading Release Management Tools

With a comprehensive view into application health and availability, APM can do things like: Both the importance and the usage of APM has grown in recent years. That’s because companies rely on increasingly complex applications to run their businesses. Here is what you need to know about Application Performance Monitoring.


Elastic SQL inputs: A generic solution for database metrics observability

Elastic® SQL inputs (metricbeat module and input package) allows the user to execute SQL queries against many supported databases in a flexible way and ingest the resulting metrics to Elasticsearch®. This blog dives into the functionality of generic SQL and provides various use cases for advanced users to ingest custom metrics to Elastic®, for database observability. The blog also introduces the fetch from all database new capability, released in 8.10.

Syslog Tutorial: How It Works, Examples, Best Practices, and More

Syslog is a standard for sending and receiving notification messages–in a particular format–from various network devices. The messages include time stamps, event messages, severity, host IP addresses, diagnostics and more. In terms of its built-in severity level, it can communicate a range between level 0, an Emergency, level 5, a Warning, System Unstable, critical and level 6 and 7 which are Informational and Debugging. Moreover, Syslog is open-ended.
