DevOps Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley [#DevOps]

The move in recent years to cloud computing services and architectures has added significant pace to the application development and deployment environment. When enterprise IT can spin up large computing instances in just minutes, developers can also design and deploy in small time frames that were unimaginable a few years ago. The consequent move toward lean, agile, and fast development leads to the need for the development and operations sides to work very closely together. Thus, DevOps becomes essential for any ambitious enterprise today. This Lunchtime Power Panel at DevOps Summit (http://DevOpsSummit.SYS-CON.com), was moderated by Andi Mann, VP of Strategic Solutions at CA Technologies. Monish Sharma, VP of Customer Success at ElasticBox; Myles Steinhauser, Software Development Engineer at Blue Box; Victoria Livschitz, CEO of Qubell Inc.; and Mark Levy, Sr. Product Marketing Manager at Serena Software go beyond the basics in a discussion of why DevOps is not only important for tr…

Secure the 'Internet of Things' By @JamesKobielus | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

The security devil is always in the details of the attack: the ones you've endured, the ones you prepare yourself to fend off, and the ones that, you fear, will catch you completely unaware and defenseless. The Internet of Things (IoT) is nothing if not an endless proliferation of details. It's the vision of a world in which continuous Internet connectivity and addressability is embedded into a growing range of human artifacts, into the natural world, and even into our smartphones, appliances, and physical persons. In the IoT vision, every new "thing" - sensor, actuator, data source, data consumer, routing intermediary, etc., is a new security-relevant detail that stirs up a wide range of collateral security issues. In other words, every new networked IoT endpoint is a new potential attack vector or launching point that the baddies can exploit. Potentially, every time you plug in a new IoT-networked device that is infected with malware or simply open to unauthorized …

DevOps Monitoring Webinar By @JKowall | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps #Microservices]

I was able to spend time in Tallinn at the first TopConf conference focused on DevOps. The conference had a good turnout of over 80 attendees for its first year. The list of speakers was excellent at the conference, including technology companies such as Skype and SoundCloud and thought leaders of DevOps like Kris Buytaert. Hearing about how Skype has evolved and operates with both custom and standard technologies is interesting, along with the changes they are going through — with Microsoft as their parent company — including leveraging Azure services for new development. Being an avid music fan, I’m a huge user of SoundCloud so it was great to hear how they were evolving as the company has undergone massive growth. The user interfaces and technologies have evolved considerably, and it was great to talk shop with a great DevOps leader in the organization. Kris spoke well and hit on a lot of fundamentals. I learned quite a bit and enjoyed his comment about legacy software vendors who …

Got a second? A leap second that is. Be ready for June 30th!

By GCP TeamIf you don’t have a second to spare, you soon will! OnJune 30, 2015 at precisely 23:59:60 UTC, the world will experience its 26th recordedleap second. It will be the third one experienced by Google. If you useGoogle Compute Engine, you need to be aware of how leap seconds can affect you.
What is a leap second? It’s sort of like a very small leap year. Generally, the Earth’s rotation slows down over time, thus lengthening the day. In leap years, we add an extra day in February to sync the calendar year back up with the astronomical year. Similarly, an extra second is occasionally added to bring coordinated universal time in line with mean solar time. Leap seconds in Unix time are commonly implemented by repeating the last second of the day.
When do leap seconds happen? By convention, leap seconds happen at the end of either June or December. However, unlike leap years, leap seconds do not happen at regular intervals, because the Earth’s rotation speed varies irregularly in respo…

Moore’s Law & Hadoop By @MasonKatz | @CloudExpo [#Cloud #BigData]

Hardware will never be more valuable than on the day it hits your loading dock. Each day new servers are not deployed to production the business is losing money. While Moore's Law is typically cited to explain the exponential density growth of chips, a critical consequence of this is rapid depreciation of servers. The hardware for clustered systems (e.g., Hadoop, OpenStack) tends to be significant capital expenses. In his session at Big Data Expo, Mason Katz, CTO and co-founder of StackIQ, discussed how infrastructure teams should be aware of the capitalization and depreciation model of these expenses to fully understand when and where automation is critical. read more

Installing Red Hat Container Development Kit on Mac OS X

By Thomas Qvarnström Containers are great and will change how we develop and deliver software. There are however also some criticism against containers that it isn’t secure and stable enough to run in products etc.With the launch of Red Hat Enterprise Linux 7.1 and Red Hat Atomic enterprises and organisations can embrace innovations from this new trend without sacrificing security, stability and performance.What is Red Hat CDK?CDK is an abbreviation for Container Development Kit which enables developers to use Red Hat Atomic on their Desktop regardless if they are running Microsoft Windows®, Mac OS X® or another Linux distributions.

Accelerating #DevOps By @BrianCReagan | @DevOpsSummit [#Docker #Containers #Microservices]

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 the organization can lead to inconsistent masking and exposure of sensitive data. read more

Securing Microservices

By Stian Thorgersen In a traditional multi-tiered architecture like the one shown in the picture below a server-side web tier deals with authenticating the user by calling out to a relational database or an LDAP server. An HTTP session is then created containing the required authentication and user details. The security context is propagated between the tiers within the application server so there’s no need to re-authenticate the user.With a microservice architecture the server-side web application is gone, instead we have HTML5 and mobile applications on the client side. The applications invoke multiple services, which may in turn call other services. In this architecture there’s no longer a single layer that can deal with authentication and usually it’s stateless as well so there’s no HTTP session.As microservices is all about having many smaller services each that deal with one distinct task the obvious solution to security is an authentication and authorization service. This is whe…

Virtual Machines vs #Containers at @DevOpsSummit New York [#DevOps #Docker #Microservices]

There is no question that the cloud is where businesses want to host data. Until recently hypervisor virtualization was the most widely used method in cloud computing. Recently virtual containers have been gaining in popularity, and for good reason. In the debate between virtual machines and containers, the latter have been seen as the new kid on the block – and like other emerging technology have had some initial shortcomings. However, the container space has evolved drastically since coming onto the cloud hosting scene over 10 years ago. So, what has changed? In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Tenko Nikolov, founder and CEO of Kyup, will discuss the security, speed, scalability, cost and outlook for the future of container cloud hosting. read more

Microservices Architecture Developer Day on June 11th in London

By Claus Ibsen We are hosting a full day event,
James Strachan will start the day presenting Kubernetes and what impact it does, and how and what you as a developer and architect should know about it. We in the fabric8 team saw first hand the impact when we realized that fabric8 had to be architecture based on kubernetes and containers (eg Docker). And hence why fabric8 v2 was born. James will also show and tell what fabric8 brings to the table to make developing with kubernetes much easier, especially for developers coming with a Java background.I on the other hand, talk about Apache Camel, which would hardly be a surprise. The scope is how developers can build microservices with Camel, and how you can use the fabric8 / maven / eclipse / hawtio / docker tooling to build and deploy your Camels on a docker/kubernetes based cloud infrastructure.Then follows a very interesting topic about api management. An area that everyone would love some help with, but there is hardly so much great sof…
