Take your logs data to new places with streaming export to Cloud Pub/Sub

By GCP Team
Earlier this year, weannouncedthe beta of theGoogle Cloud Loggingservice, which included the capability to:
Stream logs in real-time toGoogle BigQuery, so you cananalyze log data and get immediate insights. Export logs toGoogle Cloud Storage(includingNearline), so you can archive logs data for longer periods to meet backup and compliance requirements.
Today we’re expanding Cloud Logging capabilities with the beta of Cloud Logging Connector that allows you to stream logs toGoogle Cloud Pub/Sub. With this capability you can stream log data to your own endpoints and further expand how you can make big data useful. For example, you can now transform and enrich the data inCloud Dataflowbefore sending it to BigQuery for analysis. Furthermore, this provides easy real-time access to all your logs data, so you can export it to your private cloud or any third party application.
Cloud Pub/Sub Google Cloud Pub/Subdelivers real-time and reliable messaging in one global, managed service that …

DevOps: Building Trust By @AppDynamics | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

There are lots of ways DevOps can fail. For all the revolutionary promise of the idea, it takes a tricky cultural shift to get Development and Operations working together. Many companies—especially big ones—take a top-down approach. C-suite execs trumpet a Brand New DevOps Initiative, which everyone else resists, undermines, or ignores. As a developer at a SaaS company, my success depends on Ops. Too often, Dev and Ops are divided by mistrust and rarely talk between releases. Bridging this gap requires finding a way to dial down the tensions that spring from differences in status and divergent incentives. read more

Docker Load Balancing in @Rancher_Labs 0.16 By @LemonJet | @CloudExpo [#DevOps]

One of the most frequently requested Rancher features, load balancers are used to distribute traffic between docker containers. Now Rancher users can configure, update and scale up an integrated load balancing service to meet their application needs, using either Rancher's UI or API. To implement our load balancing functionality we decided to use HAproxy, which is deployed as a contianer, and managed by the Rancher orchestration functionality. With Rancher's Load Balancing capability, users are now able to use a consistent, portable load balancing service on any infrastructure where they can run Docker. Whether it is running in a public cloud, private cloud, lab, cluster, or even on a laptop, any container can be a target for the load balancer. read more

How Much Will My Agency’s Contact Center Cost?

Wavebreakmedia Ltd/Wavebreak Media/Thinkstock The federal government has caught the customer experience bug. We want our customers to complete their tasks with minimal effort using a streamlined process. If they need personal help, we want it to be quick, polite, and provide the best answer. But that personal help frequently requires a team of highly skilled, dedicated people—a contact center.When people call to ask how much it will or should cost their agency to have a contact center, I can’t give them an answer. I want to, but until I learn what they need, and the customer experience they want to provide, I really don’t know enough to give an accurate estimate.It’s similar to buying a car. There’s not one answer to how much it costs to buy car; it depends on what you’re looking for. Do you want a car or an SUV? Automatic or manual? High-performance or economy? Leather or fabric interior? Just as all these elements weigh into the cost of a car, the cost of a contact center is dependen…

Cloudy with a Chance of Security By @LMacVittie | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

We found all manner of interesting practices and trends as it relates to cloud and security in our State of Application Delivery 2015 report. One of the more fascinating data points was a relationship between security posture and cloud adoption. That is, it appears that the more applications an organization migrates to the cloud, the less strict its security posture becomes. Really. I was a bit disturbed by that, too. At least at first. read more

Containers & Cloud & Security – Oh My! By @EFeatherston | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

Dorothy the CIO was walking the yellow brick road of planning. She was on her way to the Emerald City to ask the great wizard of the agile data center for advice. Along the way she met two other CIOs who joined her on the journey, nicknamed Tin Man and Scarecrow. Their travels brought them to the edge of the dark forest of datacenter hype and fear. ‘‘Do you think we’ll meet any wild technologies and fears in there?’’ she asked her companions. ‘‘We might.’’ responded Tin Man. ‘One’s that devour IT projects?’’ whispered Scarecrow. ‘‘Possibly.’ said the Tin Man, ‘‘but mostly containers, and clouds, and security.’’ ‘‘Containers, and clouds, and security, oh my!’’ they all murmured in unison as they entered the dark forest. read more

Embracing Software Defined By @StorPool | @CloudExpo [#Cloud]

As Marc Andreessen says software is eating the world. Everything is rapidly moving toward being software-defined – from our phones and cars through our washing machines to the datacenter. However, there are larger challenges when implementing software defined on a larger scale - when building software defined infrastructure. In his session at 16th Cloud Expo, Boyan Ivanov, CEO of StorPool, will provide some practical insights on what, how and why when implementing "software-defined" in the datacenter. read more

SOA or Microservices? By @Ruxit | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps #Microservices]

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you have experience with software architecture and services (you’ll find some words about my experience on the bottom of this post). I won’t go into the details of Wikipedia’s or Martin Fowler’s definitions per se. Much more I will talk about what microservices and/or SOA could and should do for your project. read more

Smarter DevOps By @Automic | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Those from a dev-centric background might discount monitoring from their DevOps approach. But if you're already automating deployment and testing, why wouldn't you use the right set of tools to avoid manual performance monitoring? Of course, you do performance tests each time you release changes to pre-production. You're checking for response time, processor utilization, memory occupation, I/O activity and so on, but how can you ensure normal behavior without a reference point? In other words - despite your good intentions - aren't you using critical production as a first level of benchmark? If you run pre-production performance tests regularly and you can compare those results to what is seen in production, there is a greater chance of detecting the processor utilization jump that caused slowdowns and then relate it to a code change. But the reality is that most developers lack the ability to monitor how their code performs in the test, staging and production environm…

Continuous Delivery with Docker Containers and Java EE

By unknown Organizations need a way to make application delivery fast, predictable and secure and the agility provided by containers, such as docker, help developers realize this goal. For Java EE applications, this enables packaging of applications, the application server, and other dependencies in a container that can be replicated in build, test, and production environments. This takes you one step closer to achieving continuous delivery. At least this was the abstract on the Webinar Thomas and I have been giving a couple of days ago. This is the supporting blog-post with a little more details about the setup including all the links to the source code and the demo. Find a more detailed technical walkthrough in the developer interview also embedded below. A big thank you to my First we’re going to talk a bit about why everybody is keen on optimizing application delivery these days. Increasingly complicated applications are putting even more pressure on infrastructures, Teams and proc…

What is Trolling?

If you engage in discussion on the Internet long enough, you're bound to encounter it: someone calling someone else a troll.The common interpretation of Troll is the Grimms' Fairy Tales, Lord of the Rings, "hangs out under a bridge" type of troll.Thus, a troll is someone who exists to hurt people, cause harm, and break a bunch of stuff because that's something brutish trolls just … do, isn't it?In that sense, calling someone a Troll is not so different from the pre-Internet tactic of calling someone a monster – implying that they lack all the self-control and self-awareness a normal human being would have.Pretty harsh.That might be what the term is evolving to mean, but it's not the original intent.The original definition of troll was not a beast, but a fisherman:Trollverb \ˈtrōl\to fish with a hook and line that you pull through the waterto search for or try to get (something)to search through (something)If you're curious why the fishing metaphor is …

Hibernate ORM 5.0.0.Beta2 Release

By Steve Ebersole
I have just finished releasing Hibernate O/RM 5.0.0.Beta2. Beyond Beta1, this release adds:Support for Spatial/GIS data through importing Hibernate Spatial.Complete redesign of bulk id tables used to support update/delete queries against multi-table structures. The redesign helps better fit what different databases support.Redesign of transaction managementMuch improved (and still improving!) schema management tooling for export, validation and migration.At this point, 5.0.0 is getting a lot of testing. So even though it is still in Beta I am feeling pretty confident of its quality. I opted for another Beta here instead of CR1 for a few reasons:Investigate whether we want to convert Hibernate’s native APIs (Session, etc) to be typed. There is one especially tricky case that needs to be figured out. A major release like this would be the time to do thatI have just introduced some pretty significant Transaction changes since Beta1. I felt it would be prudent to have on…

What are the benefits of Node.js?

By Kenneth Peeples What is Node.js? Ryan Dahl, and other developers, at Joyent created Node.js. Node.js is an open source, cross-platform runtime environment for server-side and networking applications. It brings event-driven programming to web servers enabling development of fast web servers in Javascript. In an event-driven application, there is a main loop that listens for events, and then triggers a callback function when one of those events is detected. Node.js also provides a non-blocking I/O API that optimizes an application’s throughput and scalability. In a non-blocking language, commands execute in parallel, and use callbacks to signal completion. In a blocking language, commands execute only after the previous command has completed.Node.js uses the Google V8 JavaScript engine to execute code, and a large percentage of the basic modules are written in JavaScript. Node.js contains a built-in library to allow applications to act as a Web server without software such as Apache HTT…

The API Briefing: Top Five Findings for API Developers from Pew Research Center

stevanovicigor/iStock/Thinkstock The Pew Research Center just released a report on how Americans view open government data. The following findings were based on a November to December 2014 survey of 3,212 adults.Two-thirds of Americans use the Internet or an app to connect with the government.
According to Pew, 37% use the Internet to connect with the federal government, 34% connect with their state government, and 32% connect with their local government. It would be interesting to see a further breakout of users who use an app or mobile devices versus a desktop or laptop computer and Internet browser.The most popular reason for connecting with the government is to find information about government recreational activities.
Twenty-seven percent of users searched for information about recreation while close behind with 18% is users who renewed their driver licenses or auto registrations. The third most popular reason (13%) is to learn more about and/or apply for government benefits.Most …

Integration Testing JBoss Fuse 6.x With Pax Exam, Part I

By christian posta JBoss Fuse is a powerful distributed integration platform with built in features for centralized configuration management, service discovery, versioning, API gateway, load balancing, failover, etc for your integration-focused microservice deployments. JBoss Fuse 6.x is built on top of the Fabric8 1.x opensource project. This blog is the first part in a two-part series on integration testing when building integration microservices on top of JBoss Fuse.Honestly, I’m pleasantly surprised these days when people ask about the details of a testing strategy for the software/services they’re writing. I figured everyone agrees testing is important but that nobody actually does it. I do a lot of work with customers that use JBoss Fuse to write their integration services, and I often get asked how best to go about testing those services.JBoss Fuse uses Apache Camel as its routing and mediation engine, and you end up writing the bulk of your integration logic with Camel. For tes…
