DevOps: Disruptive but Essential in a Cloud Computing Universe
  Join us in Santa Clara Novembe 3-5!



The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo--to be held November 3-5 at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA--will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

Join DevOps Summit with us November 3-5 for three days of intense DevOps discussion and focus.

We'll see you in New York!




DevOps Summit Power Panel | Is DevOps Really Changing How IT Is Working?
While there are many ways to define DevOps, the goal of the concept is to be able to deliver IT solutions faster, leveraging several technology tools to add value for business. Cloud companies have demonstrated how they can manage massive pools of IT infrastructure, giving the developer a very flexible resource pool that they can leverage and IT is eager to do the same.

In this Power Panel at 2nd DevOps Summit moderated by Cloud Expo Tech Chair Larry Carvalho, Bernard Golden, VP, Strategy at ActiveState; Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies; John Willis, VP of Customer Enablement at Stateless Networks; Randy Bias, Co-Founder and CTO of Cloudscaling; and Vasu Sankhavaram, Chief Strategist of DevOps and Cross Portfolio Architecture Alignment within HP Software, discuss this movement that is delivering frictionless IT to the enterprise.

Beyond POC: Processing Metrics, Logs, Traces... at Scale
By Otis Gospodnetic

Application metrics, logs, and business KPIs are a goldmine. It's easy to get started with the ELK stack (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) - you can see lots of people coming up with impressive dashboards, in less than a day, with no previous experience. Going from proof-of-concept to production tends to be a bit more difficult, unfortunately, and it tends to gobble up our attention, time, and money. In this talk I'll share the architecture and decisions behind our services for handling large volumes of performance metrics, traces, logs, anomaly detection, alerts, etc. We'll follow data from its sources, its collection, aggregation, storage, and visualization.

Public and Private Cloud: Not Two Competing Worlds but Two Dimensions in the Same World
By Marten Mickos

The industry is heated with debates on whether adopting private or public cloud is the smartest, best, cheapest, you name it choice. But this debate is missing the mark. Businesses shouldn't be discussing public vs. private, but rather how can they make the two work together to their greatest advantage. The ideal is to merge on-premise and off-premise into a seamless environment that can be managed as a single entity. A forward-looking stance that will eventually see major adoption. But as of late 2013, hybrid cloud was still "rare," noted Gartner analyst Tom Bittman. In this discussion, Marten will talk about how public clouds need on-premise satellites to win and conversely, how on-premise environments cannot be really powerful unless they are connected to the public cloud. It's not two competing worlds. It's two dimensions of the same world. [continued]

Replacing the Wings of Your Airplane While Flying
By Andrew Miklas

When you set off to build an app that will change the world, designing your system architecture to be reliable and scalable is important but the stark reality is that, for your MVP, you probably had a "need for speed" (of development). You didn't know what all the axes were to scale your application, where your stress points would be, and what weird and wonderful ways your customers would use it down the road. In a world of zero-downtime services, landing the plane to figure it out is not an option. In this session, we'll share lessons learned in reliably going from a monolithic application to a microservices architecture: one wing, flap, or aileron at a time. [continued]

Speaker Bio: As CTO, Andrew is responsible for the engineering group at PagerDuty, including DevOps and Web development teams and their buildout as the company grows and scales. As co-founder, he co-created and designed the initial version of the product and also designed the company's highly-available alert dispatch system.

Process & Org Trump Culture In Enterprise DevOps
By JP Morgenthal

The term culture has had a polarizing effect among DevOps supporters. Some propose that culture change is critical for success with DevOps, but are remiss to define culture. Some talk about a DevOps culture but then reference activities that could lead to culture change and there are those that talk about culture change as a set of behaviors that need to be adopted by those in IT. [continued]

DevOps Done Right with Information Security
By Andrew Storms

DevOps is the hottest moving target when it comes to software development methodologies. Many people fear that this fast paced, barrier breaking movement will leave information security best practices in the dust. Analysts provide recommendations to security professionals using bingo laden terms like "moving security to the left" or "get a seat at the table". What we need are real world examples and tactics for security practitioners to be part of DevOps. DevOps done right with the inclusion of Information Security, produces products and processes with the potential to be even more secure. [continued]

DevOps vs the Enterprise
By Alan Sharp-Paul

For better or worse, DevOps has gone mainstream. All doubt was removed when IBM and HP threw up their respective DevOps microsites. Where are we on the hype cycle? It's hard to say for sure but there's a feeling we're heading for the "Peak of Inflated Expectations". What does this mean for the Enterprise? Should they avoid DevOps? Definitely not. Should they be cautious though? Absolutely. [continued]

The Sumo Logic Collector and Application for Docker now a...
While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. Moderated by Andi Mann, panelists discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible a...
DevOps tends to focus on the relationship between Dev and Ops, putting an emphasis on the ops and application infrastructure. But that’s changing with microservices architectures. In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks, will focus on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro) services and why that means an expansion into “the network” for DevOps.

It’s no news that microservices are one of the top trends, if not the top trend, in application architectures today. Take large monolithic applications which are brittle and difficult to change and break them into smaller manageable pieces to provide flexibility in deployment models, facilitating agile release and development to meet today’s rapidly shifting digital businesses. Unfortunately, with this change, application and infrastructure management is more complex due to size and technology changes, most often adding significantly more virtual machines and/or containers to handle the growin...

One of the consequences of digital disruption is that IT is propelled much closer to users, who expect applications and services to be available and to perform well anytime, anywhere, on any device. Communicating with the business now more than ever requires communicating with these users, and effective communication requires a clear understanding of their experience with the application services you deliver. But how well do you understand end-user experience? To answer that question, let’s firs...
This week we're attending SYS-CON Event's DevOps Summit in New York City. It's a great conference and energy behind DevOps is enormous. Thousands of attendees from every company you can imagine are focused on automation, the challenges of DevOps, and how to bring greater agility to software delivery. But, even with the energy behind DevOps there's something missing from the movement. For all the talk of deployment automation, continuous integration, and cloud infrastructure I'm still not se...
At DevOps Summit NY there’s been a whole lot of talk about not just DevOps, but containers, IoT, and microservices. Sessions focused not just on the cultural shift needed to grow at scale with a DevOps approach, but also made sure to include the network ”plumbing” needed to ensure success as applications decompose into the microservice architectures enabling rapid growth and support for the Internet of (Every)Things.
The causality question behind Conway’s Law is less about how changing software organizations can lead to better software, but rather how companies can best leverage changing technology in order to transform their organizations. Hints at how to answer this question surprisingly come from the world of devops – surprising because the focus of devops is ostensibly on building and deploying better software more quickly. Be that as it may, there’s no question that technology change is a primary fac...
APIs permeate the connected world, used by technical and non-technical professionals alike. At some point, we all work with APIs, building them, selling them, maintaining them and consuming them. With so many viewpoints and opinions, misconceptions can quickly emerge, clouding the decision-making process and hindering execution of improvements to the business of API delivery. This article focuses on dispelling some of the most common myths around the API lifecycle, so that you don't fall at the...
The rapid adoption of digital business transformation processes and the ongoing deployment of open hybrid cloud platforms are enabling the achievement of software development bold goals. But when management consultants and industry analysts talk about how IT innovation is changing many organizations, government leadership of this key trend typically isn't top of mind. That said, a new market study by MeriTalk reveals that approximately two-thirds of American federal government IT leaders say De...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.
Collaboration is vital to a DevOps ethos that promotes agile deployment. The variety of people, tools and workloads often combine for a chaotic application release cycle with no running thread. Automation can be the common denominator that binds the process together. Automation documents every step of each release whilst providing a single architecture: a high-level summary of the entire project that can be accessed by every staff member involved. This helps to delineate relationships between c...
Containers and Docker are all the rage these days. In fact, containers — with Docker as the leading container implementation — have changed how we deploy systems, especially those comprised of microservices. Despite all the buzz, however, Docker and other containers are still relatively new and not yet mainstream. That being said, even early Docker adopters need a good monitoring tool, so last month we added Docker monitoring to SPM. We built it on top of spm-agent – the extensible framework f...

Everyone wants to optimize their team’s performance, but coming up with a good plan for doing so isn’t always easy. That’s why operationally mature DevOps teams use metrics to gain valuable insight into their work, enhance the their capacity, and drive cultural change. Good data allows managers to make quick decisions with confidence and minimal risk, and it lets them see the actual (not perceived) outcome of those decisions, which can help them shape their direction going forward and make fo...
Cloud Migration Management (CMM) refers to the best practices for planning and managing migration of IT systems from a legacy platform to a Cloud Provider through a combination professional services consulting and software tools. A Cloud migration project can be a relatively simple exercise, where applications are migrated ‘as is’, to gain benefits such as elastic capacity and utility pricing, but without making any changes to the application architecture, software development methods or busine...

Transparency and collaboration are at the core of DevOps philosophy, and ChatOps is an important aspect of both. ChatOps puts an entire team or organization’s work in one place – everyone’s actions, notifications and diagnoses happen in full view. A native PagerDuty chat client would be designed for use during incidents, and wouldn’t replace the chat client you use every day.
