Breaking down IT Silo's with Unified Analytics
By Michael Demmer

IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. This can only work if the underlying analytics platform is flexible and powerful enough to handle the various workflows of the organization. Come here how we've solved this. [continued]

Three Containers Walked Into the Cloud... The Past, Present and Future of Container Deployment
By Bryan Cantrill

Unbeknownst to some, organizations have run infrastructure containers in production for years, reaping benefits on the operational end but not yet providing value for developers. When Docker catapulted containers into mainstream adoption, another type of container emerged — one that's enormously popular for developers, but not quite ready for Ops. It's time to close the gap between the promise that Devs see in containers and the operational challenges of actually running them in production. In this session, Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill will demonstrate a third path: containers on multi-tenant bare metal that maximizes performance, security, and networking connectivity. [continued]

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.

Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger: Application Delivery with Enterprise DevOps
By Andi Mann

Business and IT leaders today need better application delivery capabilities to support critical new innovation. But how often do you hear objections to improving application delivery like, "I can harden it against attack, but not on this timeline"; "I can make it better, but it will cost more"; "I can deliver faster, but not with these specs"; or "I can stay strong on cost control, but quality will suffer"? In the new application economy, these tradeoffs are no longer acceptable. Customers will abandon your brand forever for a slow response or a privacy breach; competitors will steal critical markets if you cannot deliver on time and on budget. Join this session to learn how you can leverage new technology approaches for agile parallel development, continuous delivery, and agile operations so you can (to the tune of Daft Punk), "Work It; Make It; DevOps Makes Us; Harder, Better, Faster, Stronger!"

@DevOpsSummit Blogs
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.
Auto-scaling environments, micro-service architectures and globally-distributed teams are just three common examples of why organizations today need automation and interoperability more than ever. But is interoperability something we simply start doing, or does it require a reexamination of our processes? And can we really improve our processes without first making interoperability a requirement for how we choose our tools?
Our guest on the podcast this week is Adrian Cockcroft, Technology Fellow at Battery Ventures. We discuss what makes Docker and Netflix highly successful, especially through their use of well-designed IT architecture and DevOps.
Providing the needed data for application development and testing is a huge headache for most organizations. The problems are often the same across companies - speed, quality, cost, and control. Provisioning data can take days or weeks, every time a refresh is required. Using dummy data leads to quality problems. Creating physical copies of large data sets and sending them to distributed teams of developers eats up expensive storage and bandwidth resources. And, all of these copies proliferating...
This week, I joined SOASTA as Senior Vice President of Performance Analytics. Given my background in cloud computing and distributed systems operations — you may have read my blogs on CNET or GigaOm — this may surprise you, but I want to explain why this is the perfect time to take on this opportunity with this team. In fact, that’s probably the best way to break this down. To explain why I’d leave the world of infrastructure and code for the world of data and analytics, let’s explore the timing...
In my last post, I wrote about the value of IT / business collaboration, and the importance of a common language, a common definition of end-user experience – user transaction response time – as the one performance metric both IT and business have in common. In it, I provided some background on the importance of understanding exactly how we define response time, since this definition dictates the usefulness of the measurement. For the sake of brevity, I’ll summarize three common definitions here...
Most developers learn best by examples, which naturally tend to simplify matters and omit things that aren’t essential for understanding. This means that the “Hello World” example, when used as starting point for an application, may be not suitable for production scenarios at all. I started using Node.js like that and I have to confess that it took me almost two years to quantify the huge performance impact of omitting a single environment variable. In fact it was just a coincidence that I even...
"To us DevOps is actually a movement that at the very center is about developers and IT operations teams collaborating in a framework that drives agility, drives the ideation to production readiness in a seamless manner," explained Monish Sharma, Director in PwC's consulting business, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at @DevOpsSummit, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
JavaScript is primarily a client-based dynamic scripting language most commonly used within web browsers as client-side scripts to interact with the user, browser, and communicate asynchronously to servers. If you have been part of any web-based development, odds are you have worked with JavaScript in one form or another. In this article, I'll focus on the aspects of JavaScript that are relevant within the Node.js environment.
As companies embrace the DevOps movement, they rely heavily on automation to improve the time to market for new features and services. DevOps is a long, never-ending journey with a goal of continuously improving the software delivery process, resulting in better products and services and, ultimately, happier customers. At the beginning of their DevOps journeys, many companies focus on continuous integration (CI), in which they automate the build process. Automated testing is implemented so that ...
Unbeknownst to some, organizations have run infrastructure containers in production for years, reaping benefits on the operational end but not yet providing value for developers. When Docker catapulted containers into mainstream adoption, another type of container emerged — one that’s enormously popular for developers, but not quite ready for Ops. It’s time to close the gap between the promise that Devs see in containers and the operational challenges of actually running them in production. In...
"6fusion and its mission is to basically simplify the measurement of IT so we came up with the Workload Allocation Cube," explained Delano Seymour, Co-founder and CTO of 6fusion, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 16th Cloud Expo, held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City.
DevOps is first and foremost a mindset – any DevOps initiative must begin with a cultural change. Last Tuesday, I participated in an online panel on the subject of Implementing a DevOps Culture, as part of Continuous Discussions (#c9d9), a series of community panels about Agile, Continuous Delivery and DevOps. Watch a recording of the panel: Continuous Discussions is a community initiative by Electric Cloud, which powers Continuous Delivery at businesses like SpaceX, Cisco, GE and E*TRADE by au...
One of the ways to increase scalability of services – and applications – is to go “stateless.” The reasons for this are many, but in general by eliminating the mapping between a single client and a single app or service instance you eliminate the need for resources to manage state in the app (overhead) and improve the distributability (I can make up words if I want) of requests across a pool of instances. The latter occurs because sessions don’t need to hang out and consume resources that could ...

Rapid innovation, changing business landscapes, and new IT demands force businesses to make changes quickly. The DevOps approach is a way to increase business agility through collaboration, communication, and integration across different teams in the IT organization. In his session at DevOps Summit, Chris Van Tuin, Chief Technologist for the Western US at Red Hat, will discuss: The acceleration of application delivery for the business with DevOps
It is interesting to me, how quickly the hype cycle of a good thing can turn it into a monster that will inevitably eat itself, leaving a much smaller – and much more useful – concept or toolset behind. It has happened over and over in high tech, one need only say “XML” to understand what I mean. It is definitely a useful tool for some jobs, but the “XML Everywhere” craze was insane. People declaring such patently false ideas as “It will end the need for programmers.”
Software is eating the world. The more it eats, the bigger the mountain of data and wealth of valuable insights to digest and act on. Forward facing customer-centric IT organizations, leaders and professionals are looking to answer questions like how much revenue was lost today from platinum users not converting because they experienced poor mobile app performance. This requires a single, real-time pane of glass for end-to-end analytics covering business, customer, and IT operational data.

Approved this February by the Internet Engineering Task Force (IETF), HTTP/2 is the first major update to HTTP since 1999, when HTTP/1.1 was standardized. Designed with performance in mind, one of the biggest goals of HTTP/2 implementation is to decrease latency while maintaining a high-level compatibility with HTTP/1.1. Though not all testing activities will be impacted by the new protocol, it's important for testers to be aware of any changes moving forward.
