    The Observability Expansion Pack: Fastly & New Relic

    Today’s networks can be a real nemesis--with setups being more complicated and loosely joined than ever before, it can be difficult to track your issues as they happen across multiple systems or vendors. And the real boss battle comes with tracking and managing your performance health; any hit points in performance can mean negative financial impact to your business. So how can you up your game and track things like critical performance problems in real-time across disparate platforms?

    In this session, learn how Fastly and New Relic have partnered to help power-up your observability to offer an end-to-end view of your performance metrics. With Fastly’s real-time log streaming and New Relic’s Explorer capabilities, customers can diagnose problems and fix them -- not just monitor issues as they happen. And that, it is a real game-changer worthy of any observability master.
