Reducing Logging Costs: Making The Impossible Possible

Engineering leaders are constantly facing the challenge of balancing needing to provide their teams with the best Observability and doing so without wasting significant resources and spend on it. Software engineers tend to keep all the logs they can in case they might need them in the future to solve issues that arise. This fear of missing out on logs can cause logging-related costs to become a substantial and significant burden on an organization’s cloud spend. But those days of Logging FOMO are no more. In this talk, we’ll cover the challenges of traditional logging and Observability and how that impacts your organization, both spend and resource-wise. We’ll dive into the methods and tools to overcome the exorbitant costs and waste associated with the previous. Finally, we’ll explore new cutting-edge technologies that will help you gain those cost-cutting benefits.
