In this episode, we’re talking to Russel Foster. Russel is StackState’s DevOps engineer and he is responsible for making sure our own SaaS product – which we launched recently – runs smoothly in AWS. Russel has a lot of experience in monitoring and observability: he’s worked at both startups and more mature companies – his responsibilities ranging from keeping things up and running in cloud environments like AWS to making sure hybrid and on-prem environments remain stable and reliable. So, as you can imagine, Russel is the perfect person to talk to about some of the observability challenges that pop up when you’re taking on-premise software products to the cloud. For example: Why did we choose AWS to run our Saas solution in? What does observability for SaaS solutions in AWS look like? And how you can make sure you’re scaling your SaaS product in the most effective and cost-efficient way and much more?
