Keeping an application running at scale in the cloud is different than keeping your applications running in your own data centers. Cloud technologies are different, the way you scale is different, the way you troubleshoot is different, and the monitoring you need is different.


From static compute to dynamic autoscaling to serverless services and microservices, combined with the demands of creating new digital businesses, cloud services provide new opportunities and challenges.

Join Lee Atchison, Senior Director of Strategic Architecture at New Relic and Author of "Architecting for Scale" as he discusses the differences in cloud technologies that impact monitoring and strategies for migrating and scaling applications in AWS.

  • Key questions that architects and operations teams face in cloud environments



  • Best practices for dynamic scaling and resource allocation in AWS
