My name is Michael Hausenblas and I'm a Solution Engineering Lead in the AWS open source observability service team. Further, I serve as a Cloud Native Ambassador at CNCF. I focus on open source observability including but not limited to Prometheus/OpenMetrics, Grafana, OpenTelemetry, OpenSearch, and Fluent Bit.

In the context of our service team I'm looking after destinations in the o11y flow, that is, mainly Amazon Managed Service for Prometheus (AMP) as well as Amazon Managed Service for Grafana (AMG).

For AWS-related inquires please use hausenbl@amazon.com and m.hausenblas@acm.org for everything else.
