Modern cloud-based applications adhere to a microservices architecture, encompassing numerous components interconnected through intricate dependencies, operating within a distributed environment. This talk gives an overview of three recent research projects aimed at solving practical challenges in promptly identifying and diagnosing outages.

The first paper employs an extreme event regularizer to predict outages within microservices. The second paper expounds on the construction of a Casual Graph for containerized microservices. The third paper introduces an approach leveraging time series metric data and unstructured text from historical outage reports for outage root cause analysis.

Furthermore, an overview of research themes at Adobe Research, Bangalore, will be presented.
