In the linked blog post, posted just today, Google Cloud has announced that they are modifying the pricing structure for Managed Service for Prometheus. The modifications include the addition of a new tier for those with massive utilization of the service, along with reduction in pricing for every tier available.https://cloud.google.com/blog/products/devops-sre/managed-service-for-prometheus-offers-new-pricing-tierMonitoring and providing clear visibility into your systems is an essential element of DevOps and SRE workloads. Prometheus is a powerful tool to provide that, but can get challenging to maintain in a performant, resilient, consistent manner across widely distributed workloads. Google Cloud’s Managed Service for Prometheus takes the burden of managing and scaling your Prometheus datastore off of your teams so they can focus on using the data instead of on collecting and storing it. Are you using Managed Service for Prometheus? How much of a savings will your team realize from
What are SLOs?Service level objectives (SLOs) are part of a set of measures to increase the quality of service management. This set of instructions helps to understand which behaviors really matter, how to measure them and how to evaluate them so that the service has an acceptable quality. SLOs are key to making data-driven decisions about reliability. They are at the core of SRE practices. This brings greater confidence to the Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) team about what is important for the full functioning of the service, as well as resulting in a positive end-user experience. Why SREs Need SLOs?Site Reliability Engineers cannot manage their services correctly if they have not identified the behaviors most important to the service and to customers. Carefully considered SLOs prioritize the work of SRE teams by providing data points that allow leaders to consider the opportunity cost of performing reliability work versus investing in functionality that will gain or retain cus

On Thursday, April 14, 2022, the C2C DACH region hosted a powerful and informative event with guest Joel Goodman, a staff cloud architect at DoiT International, focused on Cloud Workflows, a serverless offering from Google Cloud. Thomas Hug (@tom), one of our DACH Team Leaders, served as moderator of the session. Read on below to review the key takeaways from this in-depth introduction to this dynamic product. 30 Minutes in 30 seconds (3:47) Joel Goodman began his presentation by explaining why a Google Cloud user should consider Workflows. The more services a user has talking to each other at once, the harder they are to manage, and the more tedious the process of sending events to a pipeline becomes. (5:01) Goodman compared Workflow to an orchestrator: a central process that executes the workflow from start to finish. (5:26) Next, Goodman gave an overview of Workflows and its capabilities, and what writing a workflow looks like. (7:00) To provide some examples of use cases for Work
We’re facing two odd (and related) problems: There doesn’t seem to be a way to establish a PTR record for our primary domain’s IP address, as it’s assigned to a GCP load balancer. A reverse lookup for the IP we’re using maps to a .bc.googleusercontent.com domain, and this domain provides a cached, persistent, NON-SSL, and Google indexed version of our side, none of which can be Good.Has anyone had any experience with either of these issues? Thanks!

While using internal load balancer, scale out event happens (due to traffic metric activation), a new instance is created.At this point I noticed that all existing instances do not get traffic AT ALL from the load balancer for at least 10 seconds (traffic drops to zero).This cause a sever traffic failures to the backend and only after a few minutes when the scale out event completes the old instanced get traffic back.

End user computing devices account for 1% of greenhouse gas emissions. This may not sound like a lot, but it’s far too much if we want to change the course of our planet’s future. Fortunately, sustainability is a top-ranking trend across the business landscape, and Michael Wyatt, Head of Google’s Chrome Enterprise in EMEA, was happy to join C2C Global’s Clean Clouds Happy Earth event to tell our members about using Chrome OS to practice Sustainable IT.Chrome has committed to more sustainable manufacturing, consumption, and downstream practices for managing its products, integrating sustainability into the entire device lifecycle. Chrome’s manufacturing partners are producing more sustainable devices, including the first made entirely from ocean-bound plastics. Chromebooks also use up to 46% less energy than competitors. If other vendors adopt these practices, and customers make it a priority to invest in these resources, the goal of a sustainable future will be that much easier to achi
Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus lets you monitor and alert on your workloads, using Prometheus, without having to manually manage and operate Prometheus at scale.Google Cloud Managed Service for Prometheus lets you monitor and alert on your workloads, using Prometheus, without having to manually manage and operate Prometheus at scale.Managed Service for Prometheus is Google Cloud's fully managed storage and query service for Prometheus metrics. This service is built on top of Monarch, the same globally scalable data store as Cloud Monitoring. A thin fork of Prometheus replaces existing Prometheus deployments and sends data to the managed service with no user intervention. This data can then be queried by using PromQL through the Prometheus Query API supported by the managed service and by using the existing Cloud Monitoring query mechanisms.You can explore more Here
Trevor Marshall had just left the stage after over an hour of nonstop conversation, but he was ready for another interview. The CTO of Current, an aptly-named disruptor in the developing fintech space, had come to the event to participate in a panel discussion with Spenser Paul of DoiT, Michael Brzezinski of AMD, and Michael Beal of Data Capital Management, immediately following a one-on-one fireside chat with Paul, who also brought his labrador Milton onstage with him for both sessions. Now Marshall was sitting at a wooden dining table in an open workspace overlooking Manhattan’s Little Island floating park, enthusiastically describing a proof-of-concept his company is running with Google Cloud’s C2D compute instances, an offering powered by AMD’s EPYC processors.“It’s cool to actually be able to put a face to some of this technology,” he said. “We have a lot of compute-bound instances, and for me, I was like, ‘Oh, it’s the C2D guy!” Brzezinski had discussed AMD’s role in bringing C2D
In this blog, the Google Cloud team will equip you with an easy way to analyze and decipher the key BigQuery metrics using the Information Schema.The blog covers a couple of use cases: Analyze BigQuery Slot Consumption and Concurrency for a Point in Time Analyze Query Throughput and % Busy for a Time Period One important highlight is to note the difference between “Concurrent Query Count” and “Query Throughput Count”. “Concurrent Query Count” represents the actual number of queries running at a specific point in time. “Query Count” which is often used to describe the number of queries running over some interval of time.

C2C Global President Josh Berman recently published a feature article as a guest author at AI Technology news outlet AiThority. In the article, Berman outlines a couple of the main drivers of cloud adoption among startups, including lower infrastructure costs and the ability to access resources on demand while limiting spend to immediate usage, streamlining upfront expenses. Berman also connected with Dheeraj Nallagatla, Founder and CEO of C2C partner Dataflix, to discuss the unique advantages of building a business on the cloud.For Dataflix, the main priority when weighing cloud solutions is security, but the company also places a premium on the ability to implement quickly and efficiently and estimate costs up front according to transparent pricing models. Cloud usage also makes for easier and better coordinated collaboration, a practice Dataflix values very highly. “The Google Cloud community, specifically C2C Global, is bringing customers, partners and developers together across th

High-Performance Computing (HPC) applications are very compute intensive. These are engineering and scientific applications that simulate complex physics / technical / scientific phenomena like weather and climate, drug design and molecular modeling, fluid dynamics and material analysis e.g. in automotive and aerospace applications, and many more. In manufacturing, basically every new product, machine, part, etc. is simulated befor it gets built. And often, these simulations take hours, days, or even weeks to complete on powerful workstations. Now here comes the cloud; with vast computing resources and storage, you can run such simulations on many more servers, in parallel, reducing simulation time by a factor of 10 and more! Still, you have to ‘on-board’ your application to the cloud which in most cases is quite cumbersome, time-consuming, error-prone, and needs a lot of expertise that’s often not available in many companies. But, the good news is, in the meantime, there are automated
