[slides] Deploy Applications with Containers | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Docker #Containers

Java Developer's Journal - 2 hours 54 min ago
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 16th Cloud Expo, Jake Moshenko, Product Manager at CoreOS, examined how CoreOS + Quay.io fit into the development lifecycle from pushing git changes all the way through to running in production. Attendees will understand how different components work together to solve the problems to manage applications at scale.

Connecting DevOps to the Business at @DevOpsSummit By @DaliborSiroky | #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Tue, 07/07/2015 - 00:00
This week we're attending SYS-CON Event's DevOps Summit in New York City. It's a great conference and energy behind DevOps is enormous. Thousands of attendees from every company you can imagine are focused on automation, the challenges of DevOps, and how to bring greater agility to software delivery. But, even with the energy behind DevOps there's something missing from the movement. For all the talk of deployment automation, continuous integration, and cloud infrastructure I'm still not seeing an adequate roadmap for how DevOps aligns with the larger organization. DevOps is about delivering software faster, but there's more to the story than new tools and techniques for developers and operations.

[video blog] DevOps and Hybrid Cloud | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 21:00
Video Blog: DevOps and Hybrid Cloud - A Solution Overview. Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities. Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs. Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

IoT Will Be Realized Through the Light Bulb By @NGP_VCtweets | @ThingsExpo #IoT

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 16:30
One of the biggest barriers for adoption of the Internet of Things in commercial and residential buildings is the cost of installing and maintaining new sensors inside existing buildings. By replacing existing lights with LED + Wireless Controls + New sensors, one can create a Smart Building by leveraging existing infrastructure that already exists inside all buildings. New use case includes energy management, occupancy optimization, and security. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Upal Basu, Partner at Nokia Growth Partners, will share the unique insights that NGP, as an investor in this space, brings.

It’s Time for a Connector-Less Approach By @HeritageLaura | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 14:45
The basic integration architecture, as defined by ESBs, hasn’t changed for more than a decade. Most cloud integration providers still rely on an ESB architecture and their proprietary connectors. As a result, enterprise integration projects suffer from constraints of availability and reliability of these connectors that are not re-usable across other integration vendors. However, the rapid adoption of APIs and almost ubiquitous availability of APIs amongst most SaaS and Cloud applications are rapidly redefining traditional integration approaches and their reliance on proprietary connectors. In her session at 16th Cloud Expo, Laura Heritage, Director of API Strategy at Akana, discussed how enterprises can adopt an API-based integration and connector-less architecture to achieve lightweight, quick, and configurable drag-and-drop integration that is fit for the new digital enterprise.

IoT & Cloud Are Transforming ECM By @JMancini77 | @ThingsExpo #IoT #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 07/06/2015 - 13:30
The combined impact of the consumerization of technology, cloud, mobile and the Internet of Things (IoT) is ushering in a new era of information management that will change the face of ECM (Enterprise Content Management) as we know it. Cloud, mobile and IoT together have accelerated a mighty upheaval in the technology landscape as more content enters the enterprise than ever before – leaving enterprises struggling to manage it effectively. The modern ECM platform is required to scan, store data, manage work flow, business process and compliance. Mobile, Analytics, Cloud and Collaborative (MACC) technologies will be the nerve center for big data and predictive analytics.

Keep CALM and Embrace DevOps – Sharing | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 07/05/2015 - 14:30
In this final blog on the DevOps CALMS model, we end on S for Sharing. Now I have to be honest, the first time I saw the CALMS model I initially questioned whether ‘Sharing' was really needed. I mean, surely with the right ‘Culture', then this would ensure sharing anyway? Even in my blog on culture I mentioned the need to shift from organizational silos to a collaborative model - which must include sharing, right? Well yes it does, but sharing (or collaboration) is really the core value of DevOps adoption. Without sharing, you can forget about having the right culture, your employees accepting automation, embracing Lean and having measurements that work. This is how important Sharing and collaboration is to DevOps success.

Migrate Data from Legacy to Cloud By @WayneLam888 | @CloudExpo #Cloud

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 07/04/2015 - 14:45
As virtualized and cloud systems are so prevalent and integral to data storage, the need to migrate data from a legacy storage system to a virtual or cloud-based one is inevitable. But, here’s the rub: migrating data is a lot harder than you might think, despite all the marketing noise about smooth transitions, ease-of-use, and turnkey solutions. While the term ‘cloud’ means many things to many people, I believe it refers to a large-scale virtualized data center that has numerous clusters of VMware or other hypervisor host servers connected to a SAN storage farm with petabytes of data.

Slow Applications Are Criminal | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 07/03/2015 - 19:30
A smart APM strategy enlists the help from these three entities: the Witness, the Watchman, and the Agent. You start by listening to the testimony from the eye-witness (aka. wire data), collecting the observations from the watchman (aka. web robots), and analyzing details from the agent (aka. code level instrumentation). In the world of Application Performance Management (APM) it is always better to enlist more than one entity to help solve the mystery of performance problems.
