We have sent some of our technical experts on site to prepare for the future evolutions of our services, at Iguana the questions of observability, traceability and supervision being at the heart of our reflections for so-called standard infrastructures via our metrology tools, so it is imperative that we also have a vision of how we can provide metrology services for all technologies (including Kubernetes K8S) and thus understand the workings of managed services like EKS or Fargate, as well as the different approaches / best practices to deploy the applications in an automated way to integrate them with our own tools.
