[session] Open Source Tool Chains for Continuous Testing By @CAinc | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #ContinuousTesting

Java Developer's Journal - Sat, 04/22/2017 - 15:00
The goal of Continuous Testing is to shift testing left to find defects earlier and release software faster. This can be achieved by integrating a set of open source functional and performance testing tools in the early stages of your software delivery lifecycle. There is one process that binds all application delivery stages together into one well-orchestrated machine: Continuous Testing. Continuous Testing is the conveyor belt between the Software Factory and production stages. Artifacts are moved from one stage to the next only after they have been tested and approved to continue. New code submitted to the repository is tested upon commit. When tests fail, the code is rejected. Subsystems are approved as part of periodic builds on their way to the delivery stage, where the system is being tested as production ready. The release process stops when tests fail. The key is to shift test creation and execution to the left, rather than creating tests after development is complete. As code is committed and promoted, all tests run in the background near instantaneously, as there is no longer time for human intervention in a continuous deployment cycle.

Space-Based Cloud Storage | @CloudExpo #DataCenter #Storage #Telecom

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 16:00
Enterprises and governments rely upon the timely transfer of mission-critical information to keep their projects and operations flowing smoothly. To do so requires a complex chain of communications hubs working efficiently, and even when they are working optimally, there can still be seconds of lag time between communications. That may not seem like much, but being able to get information a second faster than the competition (or the enemy) can make a huge difference.

You Are the Network | @CloudExpo #BigData #IoT #IIoT #M2M #API #DX #AI

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 15:00
First there was the Stone Age. Then we learned how to manipulate and smelt metals, which led to an Agrarian age. From there, machines helped bring about the Industrial age, then the Space Age. So where are we now? Shall we call it the Network Age? Metcalfe’s Law holds that the value of a connected network, telecommunications in the parlance of his day, is proportional to the square of the number of connected users. Or stated more simply, the utility of a connected ‘thing’ increases as more and more ‘things’ are connected. The telephone acts as an easy example. One phone by itself is a paperweight, but one million connected to the same network is immeasurably powerful.

What ‘Software-Defined’ Really Means | @CloudExpo #AI #SDN #SDX #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 04/21/2017 - 08:45
The visual model to declarative metadata representation to immutable deployment vision is in essence what SD is all about. The secret to making this approach practical, and thus the key to understanding why SD approaches have become so prevalent, is the word immutable. Once we get an SD approach right, we no longer have to touch the deployed technology whatsoever. Instead, to make a change, update the model and redeploy.

[session] @Nutanix' Persistent #Containers | @DevOpsSummit #SDN #DevOps

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 16:15
In recent years, containers have taken the world by storm. Companies of all sizes and industries have realized the massive benefits of containers, such as unprecedented mobility, higher hardware utilization, and increased flexibility and agility; however, many containers today are non-persistent. Containers without persistence miss out on many benefits, and in many cases simply pass the responsibility of persistence onto other infrastructure, adding additional complexity.

Data Unification at Scale | @CloudExpo #BigData #DataLake #AI #Analytics

Java Developer's Journal - Thu, 04/20/2017 - 13:30
This term Data Unification is new in the Big Data lexicon, pushed by varieties of companies such as Talend, 1010Data, and TamR. Data unification deals with the domain known as ETL (Extraction, Transformation, Loading), initiated during the 1990s when Data Warehousing was gaining relevance. ETL refers to the process of extracting data from inside or outside sources (multiple applications typically developed and supported by different vendors or hosted on separate hardware), transform it to fit operational needs (based on business rules), and load it into end target databases, more specifically, an operational data store, data mart, or a data warehouse. These are read-only databases for analytics. Initially the analytics was mostly retroactive (e.g. how many shoppers between age 25-35 bought this item between May and July?). This was like driving a car looking at the rear-view mirror. Then forward-looking analysis (called data mining) started to appear. Now business also demands "predictive analytics" and "streaming analytics".

Omnichannel Challenge| @DevOpsSummit @Catchpoint #DevOps #WebPerf

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 04/19/2017 - 23:45
Almost all of the luxury brands that we work with are somewhere on the long and winding road between multichannel and omnichannel. For outsiders, this seems to be a small step but in reality, this is an extremely complex transition. In the luxury industry, multichannel often means that the brands have created an online channel (sometimes completely outsourced) that is often developed and managed completely separately from the offline channel (brick-and-mortar stores) with only limited integration. Both channels use their own order and warehouse management platforms, logistical systems, and sometimes even ERP and CRM systems. Brick-and-mortar stores offered a luxurious shopping experience where customers could touch and feel the merchandise and provide immediate gratification. The online channel tried to attract customers with wide product selection, low prices, and additional content like product reviews and ratings.

DevSecOps: Embracing Automation | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #DevSecOps

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 04/19/2017 - 22:30
While I am all for traditions like Thanksgiving turkey and Sunday afternoon football, holding onto traditions in your professional life can be career limiting. The awesome thing about careers in technology is that you constantly have to be on your front foot. Because when you’re not, someone, somewhere, will be and when you meet them, they’ll win. One tradition that has a limited lifespan at this moment is waterfall-native development and the security practices that go along with them. While the beginning of the end might have first been witnessed when Gene Kim and Josh Corman presented Security is Dead at RSA in 2012, we have more quantifiable evidence from the 2017 DevSecOps Community Survey. When asked about the maturity of DevOps practices in their organizations, 40% stated that maturity was improving, while 25% said that it was very mature across the organization or in specific pockets.

Digital Transformation Driven by ITaaS | @CloudExpo #Cloud #ITaaS #DigitalTransformation

Java Developer's Journal - Wed, 04/19/2017 - 15:00
When executing an effective digital transformation strategy, management is tasked with placing the right workload into the most appropriate IT environment. This represents a shift from buying parts for self-assembly to composing services through self-serve consumption and pay-per-use models. Quite often this transition also leads to the adoption of software defined environments across the enterprise infrastructure.
