Brian Wong is a Technology Fellow at Capital One and his talk was very much about the company’s transition to the cloud. Brian talked about how capacity planning is far from obsolete, but practicing it in a rapidly changing environment is entirely different from how it was practiced in the past. In his talk, Brian addressed containers, microservices, function-as-a-service, and fully managed services. He outlined the next-generation computing environment from an observability, capacity, and analytical perspective, and speculated on the form and value of capacity planning in these environments.
NB: I proud to work with him now!
