This eMag provides a round-up of what we and some of our attendees felt were the most important sessions from QCon New York 2015.
In this eMag we provide both implementation examples and comparisons of different possible approaches on a range of topics from immutable infrastructure to self-service ops platforms and service discovery. In addition, we talk about the Docker ecosystem and the different aspects to consider when moving to this increasingly popular system for shipping and running applications.
This eMag provides a round-up of what we and some of our attendees felt were the most important sessions from QCon London 2015 including Microservices, Containers, Conway’s Law, and properly implementing agile practises.
This eMag aims at providing an overview of an example set of tools that would constitute a typical toolchain. These are popular tools today, but you should look at them as illustrations of the kind of tasks and workflows you might need to perform in your organization as you move along a DevOps path.
Reaping the benefits of continuous delivery is hard work! Culture, processes or technical barriers can challenge or even break such endeavors. With this eMag we wanted to share stories from leading practitioners who’ve been there and report from the trenches. Their examples are both inspiring and eye opening to the challenges ahead.
Infrastructure configuration management tools are one of the technical pillars of DevOps. They enable infrastructure-as-code, the ability to automate your infrastructure provisioning.
In this eMag, we curated a series of articles that look at automation in the cloud and management at scale. We spoke with leading practitioners who have practical, hands-on experience building efficient scalable solutions that run successfully in the cloud.
DevOps, DevOps, DevOps. In 2014 DevOps hit the top of the charts in IT lingo. A recurring question that tags along recurrently is: can DevOps be applied in traditional enterprise settings? For this eMag we selected a set of articles that dig deeper into this debate and contextualize the benefits and challenges of DevOps adoption in a traditional enterprise.
Apache Hadoop is proving useful in deriving insights out of large amounts of data, and is seeing rapid improvements. Hadoop 2 now goes beyond Map-Reduce; it is more modular, pluggable and flexible and it fits a variety of use cases better. We explore this as well as some tools that can help utilize Hadoop better.
This eMag examines topics such as how Twitter re-architected its code-base to improve stability and performance, the approaches Netflix uses to be hyper-resilient, and how Java is replacing C++ for low latency coding. We also look at some lower level tricks such as feedback controls for auto-scaling, and using memory and execution profiling to identify performance bottlenecks in Java.
Continuous Delivery Overview is a concise, yet comprehensive overview of CD. It answers all your questions about the principles, practices, tools, and the business value proposition of continuous delivery. It also contains references to important CD resources and includes anecdotes from real-world implementations of continuous delivery to help you put CD into practice in your organization.
In this eMag we share real war stories from organizations that have adapted and evolved towards their own DevOps culture. The successes and the failures. The breakthroughs and the steps backwards. The technical advancements and the people changes.
