The True Cost of Downtime | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #IoT #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 08/26/2016 - 07:15
Do you know how much your organization risks with every potential outage? Application performance issues can impact away more than revenue, your brand might take a substantial hit as well. Hundreds, thousands of potential customers could take to Facebook, Twitter, Yelp, the App Store and voice their complaints and give poor reviews simply because your app crashed, stalled, or they weren’t able to successfully check out.

Agile Analytics | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #BigData #ContinuousDelivery

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 08/26/2016 - 07:00
In today’s digital economy, companies are faced with a fast data challenge as well as a Big Data one. As a result they are under pressure to adapt their analytics processes and data flows at pace to move beyond traditional data warehouse silos. Big Data projects are either too big or too complex to handle the traditional way. That’s why most projects by companies at the start of their Big Data initiative have no process at all. Waterfall approaches are notably inefficient as you probably won’t have access to proper staging environment and only limited time and scale for qualification.

Content Stores | @CloudExpo @Alfresco #ECM #BPM #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 08/25/2016 - 12:15
Using new techniques of information modeling, indexing, and processing, new cloud-based systems can support cloud-based workloads previously not possible for high-throughput insurance, banking, and case-based applications. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, John Newton, CTO, Founder and Chairman of Alfresco, described how to scale cloud-based content management repositories to store, manage, and retrieve billions of documents and related information with fast and linear scalability. He addressed the challenges of scaling document repositories to this level; architectural approaches for coordinating data; search and storage technologies, Solr, and Amazon storage and database technologies; the breadth of use cases that modern content systems need to support; how to support user applications that require subsecond response times.

Infrastructure 101 | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #SDN #SDS #DataCenter

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 08/25/2016 - 11:45
In a series of articles, I am going to share my thoughts on the state of IT infrastructure and how we've arrived with current architecture trends. The topic today is SAN. Storage Area Networking (SAN) is a technology that solved a real problem that existed a couple decades ago. SANs have been a foundational piece of IT infrastructure architecture for a long time and have helped drive major innovations in storage. But how relevant are SANs today in the age of software-defined datacenters? Let's talk about how we have arrived at modern storage architecture.

Big Data Vision | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #M2M #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 08/24/2016 - 22:15
This is an unusual blog for me. Usually I talk about how organizations can more effectively leverage data and analytics to power their business. However, as I conduct more Big Data Vision Workshops, I have come to realize that a big part of the success of these engagements is the ability to “listen and comprehend.” Here are some observations and tips for “listening and comprehending” more effectively. I’ve classified this as “facilitation” because I seek to “facilitate” a dialogue with the client where I can learn enough about the client’s business to help them build the right Big Data business strategy.

Venafi to Exhibit at @DevOpsSummit | @Venafi #DevOps #IoT #CD #InfoSec

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 08/24/2016 - 17:30
SYS-CON Events announced today that Venafi, the Immune System for the Internet™ and the leading provider of Next Generation Trust Protection, will exhibit at @DevOpsSummit at 19th International Cloud Expo, which will take place on November 1–3, 2016, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Venafi is the Immune System for the Internet™ that protects the foundation of all cybersecurity – cryptographic keys and digital certificates – so they can’t be misused by bad guys in attacks. In today’s connected world, cybercriminals want to gain trusted status and remain undetected, which makes keys and certificates a prime target. Unfortunately, most security systems blindly trust keys and certificates, allowing bad guys to use them to hide in encrypted traffic, spoof websites, deploy malware, and steal data. As the Immune System for the Internet, Venafi patrols across the network, on devices, behind the firewall, and throughout the internet to determine which SSL/TLS, SSH, WiFi, VPN and mobile keys and certificates are trusted, protects those that should be trusted, and fixes or blocks those that are not.

Top @Docker Metrics to Watch | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 08/21/2016 - 17:00
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resources of one or more underlying hosts. It's not uncommon for Docker servers to run thousands of short-term containers (e.g., for batch jobs) while a set of permanent services runs in parallel. Traditional monitoring tools not used to such dynamic environments are not suited for such deployments. On the other hand, some modern monitoring solutions (e.g. SPM from Sematext) were built with such dynamic systems in mind and even have out of the box reporting for docker monitoring. Moreover, container resource sharing calls for stricter enforcement of resource usage limits, an additional issue you must watch carefully. To make appropriate adjustments for resource quotas you need good visibility into any limits containers have reached or errors they have caused. We recommend using alerts according to defined limits; this way you can adjust limits or resource usage even before errors start happening.

DNS Experience Tests | @CloudExpo @CatchPoint #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Sun, 08/21/2016 - 04:30
A company’s collection of online systems is like a delicate ecosystem – all components must integrate with and complement each other, and one single malfunction in any of them can bring the entire system to a screeching halt. That’s why, when monitoring and analyzing the health of your online systems, you need a broad arsenal of different tools for your different needs. In addition to a wide-angle lens that provides a snapshot of the overall health of your system, you must also have precise, scalpel-like tools that can isolate and analyze all of those different components (DNS, CDNs, internal and external servers, third-party tags, etc.).

Blockchain Identity | @CloudExpo #Blockchain #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 08/20/2016 - 07:00
As good Venn diagrams always show it's the intersection areas that offer the sweet spot for trends and markets, and an especially potent one is the intersection of Cloud computing, with the blockchain and also digital identity, particularly when considered within contexts such as Digital Democracy. Given the diversity of each field alone there are multiple perspectives to this, more the start of a conversation rather than a definitive design.

Pokémon Go: A Developer’s Perspective | @DevOpsSummit #APM #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Mon, 08/15/2016 - 00:45
Every app developer dreams of the kind of success that Pokémon Go is enjoying right now. A month ago, it was just a rumor. Just 24 hours after it was released, it was the number one top grossing app, even though it was free to download and play. Within a single week, Pokémon Go servers were slammed with traffic from 21 million players while they tried to fix production errors. Today it has 3X more Android downloads than Tinder, nearly as many daily active users as Twitter and users spend twice as much time in the app as they do in the phenomenal Snapchat. Even Facebook can’t hold up against the Pokémon onslaught. By any mobile app performance metrics you want to use, Pokémon Go has been a smashing success. It’s also at the center of a media firestorm.
