  • gRPC for telemetry and intra-service calls

 In this session, you will also learn:

  • 3 different strategies for using OpenTelemetry signals with Instana
  • When and why you should use OpenTelemetry instrumentation
  • When to use the OTel Collector in your observability pipeline
  • What’s coming next for OpenTelemetry and Instana
