DevOps has simplified the development life cycle for countless applications and is being adopted by businesses worldwide. However, managing and monitoring multiple environments remain a major challenge, especially when companies must mix cloud and legacy systems. Knowing when services fail and determining the root cause is critical for continuous development. Better Stack provides DevOps teams with services. Log tail, their first service, offers SQL-compatible structured log management. Query logs in the same way you would a database. Better Uptime, their second service, is an infrastructure monitoring platform that monitors Uptime and, when issues occur, sends voice calls, SMS, and a variety of other alerts with screenshots and error logs of the incident.
