KEYNOTE: OpenTelemetry at AWS
AWS decided to use OpenTelemetry to unify its telemetry collection, standardize its propagation and correlation fundamentals, and utilizing OTLP on wire. In this talk, we will talk about our long-term migration path to OpenTelemetry and discuss the overall roadmap about our integrations at AWS.
Why OpenTelemetry at AWS?
Alignment with other observability tools and companies
Ingesting service telemetry data in OTLP
Correlations and exemplars for CW, X-Ray, Elastic, Prometheus, RDS Performance Insights and more
Missing gaps (W3C TraceContext support, CW metrics data model differences, Prometheus support)
Future telemetry types such as profiles and eBPF
