Clean Up

Going deeper

The labs here only scratch the surface of what is possible using Amazon CloudWatch and AWS X-Ray, Amazon Managed Prometheus, Amazon Managed Grafana and the AWS Distribution for Open Telemetry. A complete observability solution that includes on-premises applications and infrastructure, serverless architecture, open source solution integrations and ML-driven alarms is easily deployed using these services.

Please visit https://observability.workshop.aws for a comprehensive set of deeper labs that incorporate a broad, heterogeneous microservices architecture. Also, if you wish to know more then this session from Re:Invent 2020 is a fantastic place to continue from.
