On Air - Episode Two

Show Notes

In this weeks episode, we catch up with the Juju Benchmarking team to discuss their new product launch - titled very appropriately: “Benchmarking”. This takes a fresh approach to performing repeatable, scalable, automated Benchmarking of your workload in the cloud, on prem, and in a variety of other scenarios.

Marco Ceppi as the project lead gives us the deep dive into why benchmarking is such a focus for the Juju team. Adam Israel provides insights into how to compose benchmarks for Juju Charms and what considerations were in mind when creating the benchmark actions. Tim Vansteenburgh covers the Benchmark GUI and how it aids in the human interfacing of Benchmarking.
