Podcast – Erica Windisch on Observability of Serverless, Edge Computing, and Abstraction Boundaries

Joining us this week is Erica Windisch, Founder/CTO at IOpipe, a high fidelity metrics and monitoring service which allows you to see inside AWS Lambda functions for better insights into the daily operations and development of severless applications.

Highlights

  • Intro of AWS Lambda and IOpipe
  • Discussion of Observability and Opaqueness of Serverless
  • Edge Computing Definition and Vision
  • End of Operating Systems and Abstraction Boundaries

Topic                                                                                Time (Minutes.Seconds)

Introduction                                                                    0.0 – 1.16
Vision of technology future                                         1.16 – 3.04 (Containers ~ Docker)
Complexity of initial experience with new tech       3.04 – 5.38 (Devs don’t go deep in OS)
Why Lambda?                                                                5.38 – 8.14 (Deploy functions)
What IOpipe does?                                                        8.14 – 10.54 (Observability for calls)
Lambda and Integration into IOpipe                          10.54 – 13.48 (Overhead)
Observability definition                                                 13.48 – 17.25
Opaque system with Lambda                                     17.25 – 21.13
Serverless framework still need tools to see inside   21.13 – 24.20 (Distributed Issues Day 1)
Edge computing definition                                           24.20 – 26.56 (Microprocessor in Everything)
Edge infrastructure vision                                            26.56 – 29.32 (TensorFlow example)
Portability of containers vs functions                         29.32 – 31.00 (Linux is Dying)
Abstraction boundaries                                                31.00 – 33.50 (Immutable Infra Panel)
Is Serverless the portability unit for abstraction?     33.50 – 39.46 (Amazon Greengrass)
Wrap Up                                                                          39.46 – END
