Cloud Field Day 18: After-Action Perspective From the Delegates

We loved Nathan Bennett’s group Cloud Field Day after-action report video and wrote up an article to go with it at Gestalt IT. The event offered a platform for tech companies to showcase their developments and gain feedback from our delegates. Juniper Networks presenting their AI integration into Apstra, while Mezmo impressed with its telemetry capabilities and user-friendly interface. Long-standing industry player, VMware, was noted for its adaptability in the multi-cloud environment, proving that the evolving tech landscape remains exciting and innovative.

Through integrating these tools into a unified experience, Mezmo allows IT operators to navigate complex environments with greater efficiency. This provides valuable insights into the state, performance, and health of systems, underscoring Mezmo’s commitment to aiding organizations in better managing their IT infrastructures.

Mezmo – #CFD18

Nathan Bennett recently attended Cloud Field Day and learned about Mezmo, a telemetry and observability company, previously known as LogDNA. Mezmo aims to help organizations gain a deeper, more insightful understanding of their data, including where it’s going and what it’s doing, even across different use cases. One standout feature is their Telemetry Pipeline, which aids in validating and specifying what data is needed from various sources, while their cleanly designed UI and built-in “Incident” mode for debugging are also impactful aspects of their platform.

Cloud Field Day 18 Mezmo

Chris Hildebrandt posted his review of Mezmo’s presentation at Cloud Field Day 18. Mezmo, a modern telemetry platform, offers tools for organizations to collect, analyze, and visualize data from diverse sources. The entry highlights Mezmo’s ability to understand, optimize and respond — allowing organizations to profile their data, identify redundancies, optimize telemetry data for cost reduction and compliance, and quick, efficient data routing even during incident responses.

Introducing Mezmo at Cloud Field Day 18

Eric Wright provides an in-depth look at Mezmo’s telemetry pipeline solution, which was unveiled at Cloud Field Day 18. Mezmo, formerly known as LogDNA, collects, transforms, and routes telemetry data to understand and optimize data, thereby controlling costs and enhancing actionability. The blog particularly praises Mezmo’s user-friendly interface and their ability to make log data more valuable by enriching it with context.
