Big Data Without the Insight | @CloudExpo #BigData #DevOps #IoT #AI #ML

The Big Bang Theory is the pre-eminent explanation for the origins of the universe. It proposes, from an explosion of atoms, the universe rapidly expanded and in doing so created everything we know. But it did so in an erratic, haphazard and unstructured way. For every life form, an infinite amount of inhospitable desolate galaxies, planets and black holes were also created. Big Data is often associated with the birth of what is known as the Third Generation of IT and many are now at a crossroads: Do they continue down the current path, hoping to stumble upon a planet Earth as they navigate a sprawling universe of information and data that continually expands in a totally unstructured fashion? Or do they apply longer term strategy, investing now to refine their technology and capitalize on the explosion of information available. read more

[HDGEM] What is Big O Notation

It is the relative representation of the complexity of an algorithm.
It describes how an algorithm performs and scales.
It describes the upper bound of the growth rate of a function and could be thought of the worst case scenario.

[HDGEM] Function without parameters is an antipattern.

There are certain scenarios in which it might be useful of function without parameters, but those are very rare and mostly related to already-broken design. 
If the function doesn't have any params, then what does it do? Where does it take the input and state? It could a global one — but that is an antipattern, too. 
Functions need input and output and should be pure.

IBM DevOps Workshop at @CloudExpo | @IBMDevOps @Skytap #Agile #DevOps

Join IBM November 2 at 19th Cloud Expo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, and learn how to go beyond multi-speed it to bring agility to traditional enterprise applications. Technology innovation is the driving force behind modern business and enterprises must respond by increasing the speed and efficiency of software delivery. The challenge is that existing enterprise applications are expensive to develop and difficult to modernize. This often results in what Gartner calls "Bimodal IT," where business struggle to apply modern tools and practices to traditional monolithic applications. But these existing assets can be modernized and made more efficient without having to be completely overhauled. By leveraging methodologies like DevOps and agile, alongside emerging technologies like cloud-native services and containerization, traditional applications and teams can be more easily modernized without risking everything that depends on them. This session will…

[session] @Accenture to Present at @DevOpsSummit | @Geek_King #AI #DevOps

All organizations that did not originate this moment have a pre-existing culture as well as legacy technology and processes that can be more or less amenable to DevOps implementation. That organizational culture is influenced by the personalities and management styles of Executive Management, the wider culture in which the organization is situated, and the personalities of key team members at all levels of the organization. This culture and entrenched interests usually throw a wrench in the works because of misaligned incentives. read more

DevOps Is Easier to Fail | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Agile #ContinuousDelivery

Since the term "DevOps" was coined in Belgium back in 2009, it has been impossible to avoid the debate raging around it. While we have watched it gain hype and momentum, many articles have been written to describe what elements of a DevOps strategy are required for it to be successful. In spite of this, not many organizations feel there is a need for DevOps. In a Gartner report entitled DevOps Adoption Survey Results (published in September 2015), 40% of respondents said they had no plans to implement DevOps and 31% of respondents said they hadn't implemented it but planned to start in the 12 months after the survey was conducted. read more

Keynote: #DevOps and Cloud Craftsmanship | @CloudExpo @CAinc #AI #DX

Five years ago development was seen as a dead-end career, now it’s anything but – with an explosion in mobile and IoT initiatives increasing the demand for skilled engineers. But apart from having a ready supply of great coders, what constitutes true ‘DevOps Royalty’? It’ll be the ability to craft resilient architectures, supportability, security everywhere across the software lifecycle. In his keynote at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Jeffrey Scheaffer, GM and SVP, Continuous Delivery Business Unit at CA Technologies, will share his vision about the true ‘DevOps Royalty’ and how it will take a new breed of digital cloud craftsman, architecting new platforms with a new set of tools to achieve it.

[HDGEM] How to run script from Internet URL

curl -L | bash The -L flag is for location. If the server reports that the requested page has moved to a different location, this option will make curl redo the request on the new place.

The pipe | links the two commands so that the output of the curl command becomes the input of the bash command.

If you want to run a script from GitHub and you need to get the URL of raw script.

To pass arguments to the script:
curl -sL | bash /dev/stdin arg1 arg2 Bourne shell also supports -s to read from stdin. curl -sL | bash -s arg1 arg2

Measuring DevOps Success in Your Software Delivery Pipeline | @DevOpsSummit #CD #Agile #DevOps

When it comes to measuring the success of your DevOps rollout, it can be challenging to identify the right metrics that will provide intelligence while avoiding the trap of vanity metrics that indicate action—but not necessarily progress—towards the outcome you’re looking for. In my experience, the most valuable metric of all is the lead time between when you make a commit in source control and when that change makes it to your consumers. Some very mature organizations have even been able to link this metric to validated learning or planned outcomes in production (i.e., user engagement, revenue, or even a pivot decision). This sort of full-cycle measurement closes the DevOps build-measure-learn loop and gives you unparalleled insight into the performance of your overall delivery metrics. read more

[HDGEM] How to use Dell iDrac to reboot your server from command line

Connect to the Dell Remote Access Controller (Drac) IP address via SSH. Then execute:
racadm serveraction <action>

whereas you replace <action> with one of the following:

powerdown — Powers down the managed system.powerup — Powers up the managed system.powercycle — Issues a power-cycle operation on the managed system. This action is similar to pressing the power button on the system's front panel to power down and then power up the system.powerstatus — Displays the current power status of the server ("ON", or "OFF")hardreset — Performs a reset (reboot) operation on the managed system.
So, to power off and back on your server, you just type racadm serveraction powercycle.

If your Drac crashes for any reason, you may want to reset it: racadm racreset

If you want to have information about your current server, type: racadm getsysinfo

The Impact of Web Caching | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Storage #WebPerf

Try to remember something that happened on your last vacation. How long did it take you to recall? Now, try to remember it again. You were probably able to recall it faster the second time— but, why? This is because as soon as you recalled the event the first time, your brain saved the information to your recent memory. The same concept applies to caching. Caching is a way of temporarily storing the contents of a webpage in locations near the user, similar to the way our memory works. There are several types of caching options available like database caching, application caching, distributed caching, etc. In this article, we’ll talk about web caching and how it affects user experience. read more

Is HTTPS the Answer to Man in the Middle Attacks? | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Monitoring

A Man in the Middle attack, or MITM, is a situation wherein a malicious entity can read/write data that is being transmitted between two or more systems (in most cases, between you and the website that you are surfing). MITMs are common in China, thanks to the “Great Cannon.” The “Great Cannon” is slightly different from the “The Great Firewall.” The firewall monitors web traffic moving in and out of China and blocks prohibited content. The Great Cannon, on the other hand, acts as a man in the middle and is not just able to eavesdrop on the conversation taking place between two or more systems, but is also capable of altering the content or redirecting the users to a different property on the Internet without the user even realizing that he/she is not communicating with the intended machine. read more

How the Dotcloud Affects the Need for Startup Funding | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter

When you decide to launch a startup company, business advisors, counselors, bankers and armchair know-it-alls will tell you that the first thing you need to do is get funding. While there is some validity to that boilerplate piece of wisdom, the availability of and need for startup funding has gone through a dramatic transformation over the past decade, and the next few years will see even more of a shift. A perfect storm of events is causing this seismic shift. On the macroeconomic side this storm includes the still-persistent repercussions of the Great Recession, historically low interest rates, and uncertainty about global commerce and trade. On the technology side, still more realities add to the perfect storm, including the increasing popularity of as-a-service options, which make it easier for startups to launch with no on-premise equipment requirements and possibly no physical office at all, and development platforms that streamline the need for original development work. read …

You are very much ON TIME, and in your TIME ZONE.

New York is 3 hours ahead of California, but it does not make California slow.
Someone graduated at the age of 22,
but waited 5 years before securing a good job!
Someone become a CEO at 25, and died at 50.
While another became a CEO at 50, and lived to 90 years.
Someone is still single, while someone else got married.
Obama retires at 55, but Trump starts at 70.
Absolutely everyone in this world works based on their Time Zone.
People around you might seem to go ahead of you, some might seem to be behind you.
But everyone is running their own RACE, in their own TIME.
Don't envy them or mock them.
They are in their TIME ZONE, and you are in yours!
Life is about waiting for the right moment to act.
You're not LATE.
You're not EARLY.
You are very much ON TIME, and in your TIME ZONE.

Crucial #DevOps Success Tips | @DevOpsSummit #AI #ContinuousIntegration

Effective collaboration and communication are highly valued by the DevOps culture, and it's been like that for a reason. It is an industry where even departments within the same company tend to distrust one another, and where distributed offices full of crucial roles are the norm. Thus, any possible positive improvement in the interaction between people is welcomed, especially for an organization where several moving parts need to collaborate in order to create a product on time and within a budget limitation. You need to master communications if you want to master DevOps. Getting your operations and development teams to work together is the concept on which the success of DevOps hinges. These DevOps tips can help you lay out the basis for a DevOps communication plan that's sustainable. read more

[HDGEM] The biggest advantages of App Engine are its automatic scalability and availability.

Google App Engine applications must follow the design guidelines related to each unique App Engine runtime environment and various App Engine service APIs. The runtime and APIs are carefully designed to abstract datacenters as one massive parallel computer that powers your application and isolates it from single machine failures. As a result of these powerful features, developers can access a platform that is highly tolerant to events such as huge traffic spikes, rapid change in the number of users and services, and datacenter-wide downtime.
