The Edge of Observability: How Chick-fil-A Observes a Fleet of 2800 Restaurant-deployed K8s Clusters
Chick-fil-A runs an edge deployment of 2,800 Kubernetes clusters across our fleet of restaurants. With such a large distributed footprint running in a highly constrained environment, numerous challenges arise. One of those is observability. In this session, you’ll learn how we gather, exfiltrate, and leverage first-class metrics and utilize a “just-enough at just-the-right-time” logging approach. We’ll also share how our platform fans out logs to many internal customers.
