Microservices: The Proxy is the App By @LMacVittie | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 17:00
Microservices, for the uninitiated, are essentially the decomposition of applications into multiple services. This decomposition is often based on functional lines, with related functions being grouped together into a service. While this may sound a like SOA, it really isn't, especially given that SOA was an object-centered methodology that focused on creating services around "nouns" like customer and product. Microservices, while certainly capable of being noun-based, are just as likely to be verb-based, that is to say, based on a functional grouping like "login" or "checkout." SOA was essentially an extension of object-oriented design while microservices are more about decomposition for purposes of rapid (agile) development with the bonus of having significant scalability advantages over object-oriented architectures.

Jez Humble on High IT Performance Bt @Skytap | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 13:00
It didn’t hit me until after a second viewing of Jez Humble’s recent webinar with Perforce that his ways to predict high IT performance aren’t just a neat party trick; they’re absolutely essential. The days of bugs making it into production, distrust between departments, and delayed fixes and releases are becoming a thing of the past, at least among “high performers” of the world. And as the complexity of software grows year after year, being able to accurately predict success may be the only way to actually achieve it.

Preparing for the 'Internet of Things' Data Deluge By @Infobright | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 11:00
One of the biggest impacts of the Internet of Things is and will continue to be on data; specifically data volume, management and usage. Companies are scrambling to adapt to this new and unpredictable data reality with legacy infrastructure that cannot handle the speed and volume of data. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Don DeLoach, CEO and president of Infobright, will discuss how companies need to rethink their data infrastructure to participate in the IoT, including: Data storage: Understanding the kinds of data: structured, unstructured, big/small? Analytics: What kinds and how responsive do you need to be? Reporting: What kinds of reports are needed beyond the standard statutory reports?

Internet of Things: The Possibilities By @Plantronics | @ThingsExpo [#IoT]

Latest News from AJAX & RIA Journal - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 09:30
Sensor-enabled things are becoming more commonplace, precursors to a larger and more complex framework that most consider the ultimate promise of the IoT: things connecting, interacting, sharing, storing, and over time perhaps learning and predicting based on habits, behaviors, location, preferences, purchases and more. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Tom Wesselman, Director of Communications Ecosystem Architecture at Plantronics, will examine the still nascent IoT as it is coalescing, including what it is today, what it might ultimately be, the role of wearable tech, and technology gaps still in play, as the industry strives to create a cohesive, secure, scalable, and beneficial network of ‘things.’

Real Time Resolution for Dev & IT Opps By @Logentries | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Java Developer's Journal - Fri, 02/27/2015 - 00:45
Log data provides the most granular view into what is happening across your systems, applications, and end users. Logs can show you where the issues are in real-time, and provide a historical trending view over time. Logs give you the whole picture. Logentries has announced a new integration with Elasticsearch's Logstash, an open source solution for managing logs and event data. The new integration enables users to easily forward logs collected via Logstash into the cloud-based Logentries service for more meaningful analysis and visualization over time. Similarly the Logentries Open API allows easy extraction of data from the cloud service for Logstash users, promoting interoperability between both solutions.
