Thanos: Scaling Prometheus 101

Prometheus is a popular monitoring system. Even though it is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation's graduate project, it lacks some scalability and high-availability features. Thanos turbocharges Prometheus by adding those features while keeping storage and maintenance costs low. During this talk, core maintainers of Thanos will explain the basic concepts behind the project, its use cases, and tradeoffs.

You will learn where to start and how to quickly deploy Thanos on Kubernetes without impacting your existing Prometheus setup.

This talk is recommended for those who want to know more about running a highly available Prometheus setup at scale with potentially unlimited metric retention with the lowest possible effort and cost.
