In high-production environments where release cycles are measured in hours or
minutes — not days or weeks — there's little room for mistakes and no
room for confusion. Everyone has to understand what's happening, in real
time, and have the means to do whatever is necessary to keep applications up
and running optimally. DevOps is a high-stakes world, but done well, it
delivers the agility and performance to significantly impac... (more)

Joel Spolsky doesn't need my help in defending himself. But since he's my
favorite blogger and a person I highly respect, I feel obligated to speak up.
Mr. Curt Monash has written an article implying that Joel overestimates his
importance while not achieving that much since he was able to grow his
company to "only" 25 people.
Mr Monash wrote this article based on the wrong assumption that the number of
employees is an indicator of the success of the founders of the company.
Joel's company has about 25 employees, which is the border number when the
company remains agile, manageabl... (more)
Enterprises large and small are drawn by the advantages of cloud computing --
pay-for-use, self-service, elastic scalability and the elimination of
hardware management – resulting in very low barriers to entry and exit and
high agility. However, enterprises are also concerned about security, quality
of service, integration, compliance, lock-in, and the long-term costs of
Private clouds for the exclusive use of one enterprise can however mitigate
these concerns by giving the enterprise greater control. In a keynote address
to be given at SYS-CON's 4th International ... (more)
What could you do with your code in 20 Lines or Less? That's the question I
ask (almost) every week for the devcentral community, and every week I go
looking to find cool new examples that show just how flexible and powerful
iRules can be without getting in over your head.
Here are a few more cool iRules from the forums. This week I’ve included
one of the simplest, shortest iRules to ever make the 20LoL. It just struck
me as something quite useful that I’m willing to bet several people will
look at and say “oh, that’s handy” despite the fact that it’s not
complex or long.
One of the coolest parts of the new SproutCore View layer is its ability to
use aspect-based programming to add behaviors to views.
Aspect-based programming is built on the premise that often objects that
don’t follow from the same class hierarchy may in fact need similar
This is especially true in GUI programming when designers come to you and say
something like “I came up with this new widget - it looks kind of like a
progress bar but it acts like a button when you click on it”.
In SproutCore, you capture these common behaviors in a “mixin”. A mixin
is just a colle... (more)

Containers are all the rage among developers and web companies, but they also represent two very substantial benefits to larger organizations. First, they have the potential to dramatically accelerate the application lifecycle from software builds and testing to deployment and upgrades. Second they represent the first truly hybrid-approach to consuming infrastructure, allowing organizations to run the same workloads on any cloud, virtual machine or physical server. Together, they represent a ver...

As operational failure becomes more acceptable to discuss within the software industry, the necessity for holding constructive, actionable postmortems increases. But most of what we know about postmortems from "pop culture" isn't actually relevant for the software systems we work on and within.
In his session at DevOps Summit, J. Paul Reed will look at postmortem pitfalls, techniques, and tools you'll be able to take back to your own environment so they will be able to lay the foundations for h...

Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
Additional benefits of microservices architectures are compartmentalization and a limited impact of service failure versus a complete software malfunction....

The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit, Brian “Redbeard” Harrington, a principal architect at CoreOS, will examine how CoreOS helps teams run in production. Attende...

Developing software for the Internet of Things (IoT) comes with its own set of challenges. Security, privacy, and unified standards are a few key issues. In addition, each IoT product is comprised of at least three separate application components: the software embedded in the device, the backend big-data service, and the mobile application for the end user's controls. Each component is developed by a different team, using different technologies and practices, and deployed to a different stack/...

Containers have changed the mind of IT in DevOps. They enable developers to work with dev, test, stage and production environments identically. Containers provide the right abstraction for microservices and many cloud platforms have integrated them into deployment pipelines. DevOps and Containers together help companies to achieve their business goals faster and more effectively.
