The cloud is a collection of millions of individual computers, loosely connected across the world. The scale, security and compliance requirements of the cloud create many challenges for the collection and analysis of the cloud’s operating data. We will present in detail some of these specific challenges along with the approaches we used to enable deep analytics of the cloud performance and reliability.
