Characterizing and Contrasting Container Orchestrators | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Containers

Admiral Calcote - also known as Lee Calcote (@lcalcote) or the Ginger Geek to his friends - gave a presentation entitled Characterizing and Contrasting Container Orchestrators at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. Okay, he isn't really an admiral - nor does anyone call him that - but he used the title admiral to describe what container orchestrators do, relating it to an admiral directing a fleet of container ships. You could also say that they are like the conductor of an orchestra, directing the individuals to work together as a group toward a common goal while each musician is still able to play their own instrument. Lee is the Head of Technology Strategy at SolarWinds, and for his talk, he walked through four open-source container orchestrators: Nomad, Swarm, Kubernetes, and Mesos-Marathon. He emphasized the obvious - there is no one perfect solution. Each or... (more)

[session] CICD as a Service | @CloudExpo #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps

Continuous Integration Continuous Delivery (CICD) as a Service: Securing Velocity in the Cloud The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But... securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous architectural and coordination work to minimize the volatility of the cloud environment and leverage the security features of the cloud to the benefit of the CICD pipeline. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Scott Harvey, Vice President of Engineering at Atmosera, will outline CICD... (more)

[session] Containers for Private Cloud | @CloudExpo @TidalScale #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes

Using Containers to Deliver Efficient Private Cloud Audience Every few years, a disruptive force comes along that prompts us to reframe our understanding of what something means, or how it works. For years, the notion of what a computer is and how you make one went pretty much unchallenged. Then virtualization came along, followed by cloud computing, and most recently containers. Suddenly the old rules no longer seemed to apply, or at least they didn't always apply. These disruptors made us reconsider our IT worldview. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Jamon Bowen, Sales Engineering Director at TidalScale, will discuss how Software-Defined Servers are having a similar effect on our notion of virtualization and containers. Software-Defined Servers combine all the resources of multiple servers - CPUs, memory, storage and network - into one or more virtual machine. Th... (more)

How to Sponsor @DevOpsSummit 2018 | #CloudNative #Serverless #DevOps #Docker #Kubernetes

@DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo taking place June 5-7, 2018, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY, is co-located with 22nd Cloud Expo | 1st DXWorld Expo and will feature technical sessions from a rock star conference faculty and the leading industry players in the world. The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential. @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo | DXWorldEXPO 2018 New York (June 5-7, 2018, Javits Center, Manhattan) @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo | DXWorldEXPO 2018 Silicon Valley (November 6-8, 2018, Santa Clara Convention Center, CA) Download Show Prospectus ▸ Here @DevOps...

Journey to the Cloud, Better with Incident Management |@CloudExpo #Agile #CloudNative

Journey to the Cloud, Better with Incident Management By Vince Power Many IT organizations have come to learn that leveraging cloud infrastructure is not just unavoidable, it’s one of the most effective paths for IT organizations to become more responsive to business needs. Yet with the cloud comes new challenges, including minimizing downtime, decreasing the cost of operations, and preventing employee burnout to name a few. As companies migrate their processes and procedures to their new reality of a cloud-based infrastructure, an incident management solution can and should be adopted to help overcome these challenges. This is particularly true when larger enterprises operate with a hybrid environment, which mixes traditional infrastructure with cloud-based infrastructure and, by extension, requires a hybrid approach to incident management. It takes time to migrate ... (more)

[session] Automated Infrastructure with Containers | @DevOpsSummit @CoreOS #DevOps #Kubernetes

Migrating to Automated Infrastructure with Containers Containers are rapidly finding their way into enterprise data centers, but change is difficult. How do enterprises transform their architecture with technologies like containers without losing the reliable components of their current solutions? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Tony Campbell, Director, Educational Services at CoreOS, will explore the challenges organizations are facing today as they move to containers and go over how Kubernetes applications can deploy with legacy components, and also go over automated capabilities provided by operators to auto-update Kubernetes with zero downtime for current and secure deployments.

[session] Enterprise #Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #CloudNative #DX #Serverless

Segmentation and Isolation on Kubernetes for Enterprise Teams Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it's becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This leads to a waste of cloud resources and increased operational overhead. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Damien Toledo, co-founder, VP of Engineering and Developer at Nirmata, will demonstrate how it's possible to fully automate the isolation of applications running on shared clusters. He will... (more)
