Practical Engineering explores a scalable (and unexpected) means of mass energy storage.

Electricity faces a fundamental problem that comes with pretty much any product that’s provided on-demand: our ability to generate large amounts of it doesn’t match up that closely with when we need it. The storage of electricity for later use, especially on a large scale, is quite challenging. That’s not to say that we don’t store energy at grid scale though, and there’s one type of storage that makes up the vast majority of our current capacity.

A quick introduction on how to think about setting up alerting and monitoring for applications in Kubernetes.

What do you get out of the box, how can you integrate more advanced metrics and add your own custom monitoring and alerting to reliably operate your application.
