Thanos - Transforming Prometheus to a Global Scale in a Seven Simple Steps


Thanos - Transforming Prometheus to a Global Scale in a Seven Simple Steps

The Prometheus Monitoring system has been thriving for several years. Along with its powerful data model, operational simplicity and reliability have been a key factor in its success. However, some questions were still largely unaddressed. How can we store historical data at the order of petabytes in a reliable and cost-efficient way? Can we do so without sacrificing responsive query times? And what about a global view of all our metrics and transparent handling of HA setups?

Thanos is an open source project that takes Prometheus' strong foundations and extends it into a clustered, yet coordination free, globally scalable metric system.

In just 20 minutes, this talk will walk you through the real, actionable steps of seamlessly transforming your Prometheus setup into a robust, global and durable monitoring system using Thanos.
