Observability is one of those concepts being tossed about these days in the tech press and at cloud computing conferences. Everyone has a definition of what it is and how it’s used. No two are the same.

Observability seems to be mostly defined as the ability to determine key insights from a great deal of data. Observability as related to cloud operations (cloudops) normally uses data that’s being extracted from running systems. We use this data not only to determine if something is going wrong, but to figure out why and how to fix it.

What’s the value of observability as a concept, and how is it of value to cloudops? Let’s break it down into components that allow enterprises to dissect observability into ways that return value back to the business:

Automation is not new, but its use in cloud computing is recent. The idea is to automate tasks that have been traditionally carried out by humans; for example, self-healing a saturated compute server by automatically restarting it on a cloud provider. Or restricting the overuse of some expensive cloud service by finops automation, or having security automation defend against a cloud-borne breach attempt that happens at 3:00 a.m.

The truth is I’ve preached the role of automation in cloud computing for many years now, but I’ve noticed a reluctance to set up and leverage automation within cloud deployments. This seems to be a systemic problem that could lead to suboptimized cloud deployments, missing an opportunity to have more reliable, more secure, and more trackable cloud operations.

Agentless security management system aims to simplify vulnerability management for security teams and developers in cloud and hybrid cloud environments.

Java services company Azul has unveiled Azul Vulnerability Detection, a SaaS product that leverages the Azul JVM to continuously monitor Java applications for security vulnerabilities.

Azul Vulnerability Detection, introduced November 2, is an agentless cloud service designed for production use. It addresses enterprise risk around software supply chain attacks and eliminates false positives while not impacting performance, Azul said.

Accessible from azul.com, Azul Vulnerability Detection identifies code running in the Azul JVM and maps it against a curated Java-specific database of common vulnerabilities and exposures (CVEs). A history of detections is retained so when new CVEs are disclosed, users can determine when and on what systems they have been running vulnerable software.
