DevOps from the Front Lines | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM #Monitoring

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 16:00
What do I think of when I’m told a company wants to adopt DevOps? The first thing that comes to mind is the size of the organization, and how far they want to take DevOps best practices. I really want to know what DevOps adoption will mean for the company. In my experience, it gets especially interesting for large organizations that rely on a lot of applications and teams. There are important principles that support adoption. First, adoption should include a clear directive of how people and processes will be organized to manage application lifecycles and their interdependencies. Adoption also includes selecting the optimal technologies to manage the lifecycle and pipeline.

An Overview of DDoS Attacks | @CloudExpo #Cloud #Security #DataCenter

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 15:00
Powerful Denial of Service attacks are becoming increasingly common. A Distributed Denial of Service attack is when the attacker uses multiple machines to flood the resources of the target to overwhelm it and deny the legitimate users access to the service. The DDoS attack on Dyn in October 2016 was one of most powerful attacks in history. Many DDoS attacks can be thwarted to a large extent by increasing the system’s capacity during an attack, but that is not a solution because it still causes monetary losses.

Denouement of DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #API #IoT #Microservices

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 08:15
Whether you like it or not, DevOps is on track for a remarkable alliance with security. The SEC didn’t approve the merger. And your boss hasn’t heard anything about it. Yet, this unruly triumvirate will soon dominate and deliver DevSecOps faster, cheaper, better, and on an unprecedented scale. In his session at DevOps Summit, Frank Bunger, VP of Customer Success at ScriptRock, discussed how this cathartic moment will propel the DevOps movement from such stuff as dreams are made on to a practical, powerful, and insanely valuable asset to enterprises. You may call it DevSecOps, or SecDevOps, or maybe even DevOpsSec. Choose your own adventure.

Bouncy Castle and Encryption | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #SDN #AI #ML #DL

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Sat, 02/25/2017 - 08:15
In September 2014, Apple made encryption default with the introduction of the iPhone 6. Then, in February 2016, a Los Angeles judge issued an order to Apple to help break into the encrypted iPhone belonging to a terrorist involved in a mass shooting. Apple had used some of the strongest encryption technologies and practices to protect its users and their data. The encryption technology did not discriminate between lawful and unlawful users. While there were many sides to this issue, it surfaced many important debates on security, privacy, and civil rights.

[session] How to IoTify | @ThingsExpo #BigData #IoT #M2M #AI #ML #PAaaS

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/24/2017 - 16:30
Almost two-thirds of companies either have or soon will have IoT as the backbone of their business. Though, IoT is far more complex than most firms expected with a majority of IoT projects having failed. How can you not get trapped in the pitfalls? In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tony Shan, Chief IoTologist at Wipro, will introduce a holistic method of IoTification, which is the process of IoTifying the existing technology portfolios and business models to adopt and leverage IoT. He will delve into the components in this framework: Anatomy, Ramp-up, Use case, Business case, Architecture, Technology selection, Implementation, and Platform (ARUBA TIP). The interdisciplinary techniques and anti-patterns of this method will be discussed, along with best practices and lessons learned, to help organizations transform to and enable IoT more effectively.

[session] #IIoT Network and #EdgeComputing | @ThingsExpo @Midokura #IoT

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/24/2017 - 14:15
There are 66 million network cameras capturing terabytes of data. How did factories in Japan improve physical security at the facilities and improve employee productivity? Edge Computing reduces possible kilobytes of data collected per second to only a few kilobytes of data transmitted to the public cloud every day. Data is aggregated and analyzed close to sensors so only intelligent results need to be transmitted to the cloud. Non-essential data is recycled to optimize storage.

[slides] #Hadoop for Streaming Data | @CloudExpo @MapR #BigData #AI #IoT

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/24/2017 - 04:00
Apache Hadoop is emerging as a distributed platform for handling large and fast incoming streams of data. Predictive maintenance, supply chain optimization, and Internet-of-Things analysis are examples where Hadoop provides the scalable storage, processing, and analytics platform to gain meaningful insights from granular data that is typically only valuable from a large-scale, aggregate view. One architecture useful for capturing and analyzing streaming data is the Lambda Architecture, representing a model of how to analyze real-time and historical data together.

[session] #IoT: #EdgeComputing and #FogComputing | @ThingsExpo @Akamai

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/23/2017 - 23:30
With billions of sensors deployed worldwide, the amount of machine-generated data will soon exceed what our networks can handle. But consumers and businesses will expect seamless experiences and real-time responsiveness. What does this mean for IoT devices and the infrastructure that supports them? More of the data will need to be handled at - or closer to - the devices themselves.

[session] @Scrumdotorg to Present at @DevOpsSummit | #Scrum #AI #DevOps

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/23/2017 - 17:15
It is ironic, but perhaps not unexpected, that many organizations who want the benefits of using an Agile approach to deliver software use a waterfall approach to adopting Agile practices: they form plans, they set milestones, and they measure progress by how many teams they have engaged. Old habits die hard, but like most waterfall software projects, most waterfall-style Agile adoption efforts fail to produce the results desired. The problem is that to get the results they want, they have to change their culture and cultures are very hard to change. To paraphrase Peter Drucker, "culture eats Agile for breakfast." Successful approaches are opportunistic and leverage the power of self-organization to achieve lasting change. This talk will share stories of success and failure and will talk about why different approaches succeed and fail.

Software Defined Management Dashboards | @CloudExpo #SDN #DataCenter

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/23/2017 - 15:15
Recently I found in my inbox a link to a piece 6 Dashboards for Managing Every Modern Data Center that caught my attention. I was hoping to see who the six different dashboard solutions were instead of finding list of dashboard considerations for modern data centers and data infrastructures. Turns out the piece was nothing more than a list of six items featured as part of the vendors (Sunbird) piece about what to look for in a dashboard (e.g. their product). Sure there were some of the usual key performance indicator (KPI) associated with or related to IT Service Management (ITSM), Data Center Infrastructure (Insight/Information) Management (DCIM), Configuration and Change management databases (CMDB), availability, capacity and Performance Management Databases (PMDB) among others.

Building the IoT: Operational vs. Commercial | @ThingsExpo #IoT #M2M

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/23/2017 - 14:00
About 6 months ago I had this "brilliant" idea that I would like to monitor the water level of my plants living on my balcony. The goal was to keep them healthy and happy (and producing vegetables for me in my urban garden). After looking for a commercial solution to aid me in this project, I discovered that there wasn't anything out there that would do what I need. The primary reason why nothing worked for me was that none of the products out there are capable of monitoring multiple plants at once, leaving me with the need to buy multiple units. At 10-15 containers for plants, this was immediately recognized as unrealistic, due to their high individual cost. Being the enterprising person I am, my immediate thought was, "I will just build one! How hard can it be?"

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Thu, 02/23/2017 - 08:00
DevOps is all the rage these days and with good reason as it promises to reduce the time-to-market for new applications. It also promises to improve change management, allowing teams to deploy changes to their applications quickly and efficiently. However, DevOps isn’t something you buy, install, or implement; rather it is the symptom of an appropriate organizational system. In his session at DevOps Summit, Mark Thiele, EVP, Data Center Technologies at SUPERNAP International, discussed how to get to the right organizational model that will allow DevOps practices to flourish.
