[session] Scheduling in #Kubernetes | @DevOpsSummit #CloudNative #DevOps #Docker #DX

Implement Advanced Scheduling Techniques in Kubernetes Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs - without configuration complexity. You'll get a run-down of the pitfalls and things to keep in mind for this route. Speaker Bio Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, has been working in the fi... (more)

Fifteen Metrics for DevOps Success | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Serverless

Fifteen Metrics for DevOps Success By Matt Watson How is DevOps going within your organization? If you need some help measuring just how well it is going, we have prepared a list of some key DevOps metrics to track. These metrics can help you understand how your team is doing over time. Define what DevOps means to your organization The word DevOps means different things to different people. Some say it a culture and every vendor in the industry claims that their tools help with DevOps. Depending on how you define DevOps, some of these metrics may matter more or less to you and your team. I define DevOps as everything that relates to deploying and monitoring your applications. In many ways, this bleeds over to site reliability engineering. At Stackify, we don't even have an operations team to collaborate with. Our developers deploy directly to the cloud and we operate...

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. Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here 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.

Organically DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #Serverless #AI #Monitoring

Some people are directors, managers, and administrators. Others are disrupters. Eddie Webb (@edwardawebb) is an IT Disrupter for Software Development Platforms at Liberty Mutual and was a presenter at the 2016 All Day DevOps conference. His talk, Organically DevOps: Building Quality and Security into the Software Supply Chain at Liberty Mutual, looked at Liberty Mutual's transformation to Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and DevOps. For a large, heavily regulated industry, this task can not only be daunting, but viewed by many as impossible. Eddie's talk looks at the origins of DevOps at Liberty Mutual, the challenges of centralizing DevOps, and how to make it easy for developers and operations to do the right thing. He noted that DevOps is not their goal; Continuous Delivery is their goal, and DevOps is the enabler. It all started at Liberty Mutual in ... (more)

The Four Core Capabilities of #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Serverless #CloudNative

The Four Core Capabilities of DevOps By Necco Ceresani DevOps is good for organizations. According to the soon to be released State of DevOps Report high-performing IT organizations are 2X more likely to exceed profitability, market share, and productivity goals. But how do they do it? How do they use DevOps to drive value and differentiate their companies? We recently sat down with Nicole Forsgren, CEO and Chief Scientist at DORA (DevOps Research and Assessment) and lead investigator for the State of DevOps Report, to discuss the role of measurement in DevOps Success. From years of research into DevOps operations and culture, Forsgren and her colleagues have found that success depends on improving two key outcomes—speed and stability. These, she says, are crucial for driving improvement in organizational performance and value. But achieving these outcomes requires... (more)

Three DevOps Predictions for 2018 | @DevOpsSummit #DX #CD #DevOps

Planning for 2018? Put These Three DevOps Items at the Top of Your Digital To-Do List For many of us laboring in the fields of digital transformation, 2017 was a year of high-intensity work and high-reward achievement. So we're looking forward to a little breather over the end-of-year holiday season. But we're going to have to get right back on the Continuous Delivery bullet train in 2018. Markets move too fast and customer expectations elevate too precipitously for businesses to rest on their laurels. Here's a DevOps "to-do list" for 2018 that should be priorities for anyone who wants to make sure their organization is running at the front of the digital pack through next year - and beyond. #1: Shift digital security left Digital security has become a boardroom-level issue - and it's only going to grow in importance as headline-worthy breaches alienate customers and ...

How to Learn from Failure in DevOps | @DevOpsSummit #Agile #DevOps #Serverless

How to Learn from Failure in DevOps By Eric Bruno DevOps failure is a touchy subject with some, because DevOps is typically perceived as a way to avoid failure. As a result, when you fail in a DevOps practice, the situation can seem almost hopeless. However, just as a fail-fast business approach, or the "fail and adjust sooner" methodology of Agile often proves, DevOps failures are actually a step in the right direction. They're the first step toward learning from failures and turning your DevOps practice into one that will lead you toward even greater success, sooner rather than later. DevOps has its roots in Agile, where shorter development cycles with frequent feedback loops guide you quickly, over a period of time, toward product delivery that is more aligned with customer needs. The point of the feedback loop is to learn from your actions through customer feedb... (more)

[slides] DevOps vs SRE vs Cloud Native | @DevOpsSummit @RackNgo #Serverless #SRE

Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here DevOps vs SRE vs Cloud Native DevOps is under attack because developers don't want to mess with infrastructure. They will happily own their code into production, but want to use platforms instead of raw automation. That's changing the landscape that we understand as DevOps with both architecture concepts (CloudNative) and process redefinition (SRE). Download Slide Deck: ▸ Here Rob Hirschfeld's recent work in Kubernetes operations has led to the conclusion that containers and related platforms have changed the way we should be thinking about DevOps and controlling infrastructure. The rise of Site Reliability Engineering (SRE) is part of that redefinition of operations vs development roles in organizations. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Rob Hirschfeld, CEO and co-founder of RackN, explor... (more)
