Lumigo, a company simplifying application monitoring and debugging for enterprise developers, has announced the expansion of its core platform with support for containers and Kubernetes. The move will allow developers to perform end-to-end observability across the entire spectrum of cloud services driving modern applications.

Today, enterprises develop cloud applications with microservice architectures such as serverless and containers. Under this arrangement, the core services of the application are fully managed by cloud providers or third parties, enabling IT to focus on the main task: Development. 

While the approach brings efficiency into the development process, it also creates the challenge of monitoring as, under microservice architecture, every single user request usually spans different services. This means teams working to debug issues have to go through various logs or metrics and correlate the executions to understand the full path of a request and why it failed. It’s a process that can take a lot of time, money and effort.

Lumigo’s distributed tracing

To help enterprises take full advantage of microservice architecture while working around this problem, Lumigo developed a cloud-native observability solution driven by automated distributed tracing algorithms. 

The solution stitches together different components of an application in one complete view and tracks every step of every request as it moves through its path. This connects all the dots and helps developers understand how the different parts of their application interact with and impact each other, ultimately enabling them to catch and resolve issues early.

Expansion

So far, Lumigo’s platform has largely focused on serverless application environments, which are the most distributed. To take things further and truly connect today’s highly distributed systems, the company is extending its platform with support for Kubernetes and containers.

“With this new release, Lumigo is expanding the surface of the compute layers it supports, to ECS [elastic container service], Fargate and Kubernetes,” said Erez Berkner, CEO and cofounder of Lumigo. “Applications that use containers, serverless, or a combination of both, can benefit from Lumigo’s automated distributed tracing, which really excels when the connection is across asynchronous managed services (i.e., EventBridge, DynamoDB, Step functions, or S3).”

He added that the update is more like a natural extension of Lumigo, one that will ensure that the platform can deliver observability for any modern cloud application, regardless of the architecture or the computing service used.

“With Lumigo, enterprises can significantly reduce the time it takes to repair applications and get back to business as usual while ensuring end-users feel no impact, engineering efforts are focused on improvements that benefit customers, and applications are deployed into production with confidence,” Berkner said.

New Pixel Watch leak reveals watch faces, strap styles and more

We’re expecting the Google Pixel Watch to make its full debut on Thursday, October 6 – alongside the Pixel 7 and the Pixel 7 Pro – but in the meantime a major leak has revealed much more about the upcoming smartwatch.

Seasoned tipster @OnLeaks (opens in new tab) has posted the haul, which shows off some of the color options and band styles that we can look forward to next week. We also get a few shots of the watch interface and a picture of it being synced with a smartphone.

Watch faces are included in the leak too, covering a variety of different approaches to displaying the time – both in analog and digital formats. Another image shows the watch being used to take an ECG reading to assess heartbeat rate.

Just got my hands on a bunch of #Google #PixelWatch promo material showing all color options and Watch Bands for the first time. Some details revealed as well…@Slashleaks 👉🏻 https://t.co/HzbWeGGSKP pic.twitter.com/N0uiKaKXo0October 1, 2022

Full colors

If the leak is accurate, then we’ve got four silicone straps on the way: black, gray, white, and what seems to be a very pale green. Leather straps look to cover black, orange, green and white, while there’s also a fabric option in red, black and green.

We already know that the Pixel Watch is going to work in tandem with the Fitbit app for logging all your vital statistics, and included in the leaked pictures is an image of the Pixel Watch alongside the Fitbit app running on an Android phone.

There’s plenty of material to look through here if you can’t wait until the big day – and we will of course be bringing you all the news and announcements as the Google event unfolds. It gets underway at 7am PT / 10am ET / 3pm BST / 12am AEDT (October 7).


Analysis: a big moment for Google

It’s been a fair while since Google launched itself into a new hardware category, and you could argue that there’s more riding on the Pixel Watch than there is on the Pixel 7 and Pixel 7 Pro – as Google has been making phones for years at this point.

While Wear OS has been around for a considerable amount of time, Google has been leaving it to third-party manufacturers and partners to make the actual hardware. Samsung recently made the switch back to Wear OS for the Galaxy Watch 5 and the Galaxy Watch 5 Pro, for example.

Deciding to go through with its own smartwatch is therefore a big step, and it’s clear that Google is envious of the success of the Apple Watch. It’s the obvious choice for a wearable for anyone who owns an iPhone, and Google will be hoping that Pixel phones and Pixel Watches will have a similar sort of relationship.

What’s intriguing is how Fitbit fits in – the company is now run by Google, but so far we haven’t seen many signs of the Fitbit and the Pixel lines merging, even if the Pixel Watch is going to come with support for the Fitbit app.
