While DevOps most critically and famously fosters collaboration, communication, and integration through cultural change, culture is more of an output than an input. In order to actively drive cultural evolution, organizations must make substantial organizational and process changes, and adopt new technologies, to encourage a DevOps culture. In this DevOps Summit Power Panel - moderated by Andi Mann, founder of Sageable - Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs; Haseeb Budhani,  co-founder and CEO of Soha; and Dalibor Siroky, Director and co-founder at Plutora; discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and ...

Understanding #Serverless at @CloudExpo | #DevOps #NoCode #LowCode #AI

Understanding Serverless Cloud and Clear By Martijn van Dongen Serverless is considered the successor to containers. And while it’s heavily promoted as the next great thing, it’s not the best fit for every use case. Understanding the pitfalls and disadvantages of serverless will make it much easier to identify use cases that are a good fit. This post offers some technology perspectives on the maturity of serverless today. First, note how we use the word serverless here. Serverless is a combination of “Function as a Service” (FaaS) and “Platform as a Service” (PaaS). Namely, those categories of cloud services where you don’t know what the servers look like. For example, RDS or Beanstalk are “servers managed by AWS,” where you still see the context of server(s). DynamoDB and S3 are just some kind of NoSQL and storage solution with an API, where you do not see the ser... (more)

Hybrid Cloud Security: Part 3 | @CloudExpo #SDN #API #SaaS #Cybersecurity

In the first article of this three-part series on hybrid cloud security, we discussed the Shared Responsibility Model, and examined how the most common attack strategies persist, are amplified, or are mitigated as assets move from data centers to the cloud. In part two, we talked about the unique security challenges that are introduced by public cloud environments. In this third and final installment, we'll review why it's essential to approach hybrid cloud security with different methods, tools and best practices than those used in the data center. Bridging the Silo Between On-Premises and Cloud Environments For today's resource-constrained IT teams, the explosion of public cloud services has only increased the complexity of securing critical infrastructure. Until recently, it has been a challenge for IT professionals to find security tools that are specifically de... (more)

WebRTC, #IoT and #API Gateways | @ThingsExpo #UCaaS #RTC #WebRTC

Defining Web 3.0 and Developing the Fastest Enterprise Mobility Apps I value a strong opinion.  Especially when the opinionated is an expert and willing to stand up and place a flag in the sand.  In this article, my ambitious friend, programming guru, gamer, colleague, bona fide geek and mobility expert Peter Rogers shares his opinions on the meaning of Web 3.0 and how it will impact mobile application development and the enterprise.  While he is English and prone to use words like whilst, that should not be held against him. I have two ambitions in life: to be the first person to define Web 3.0 in a meaningful way; and to be able to reform Atomic Kitten to sing at my next birthday. Only one of these is achievable so here goes. The Web is changing quite drastically and there are ten key factors that define the next "Web" hereafter as Web 3.0: The dropping of legacy b... (more)

Which #Serverless Platform? | @CloudExpo @LinuxAcademyCOM #DevOps

Serverless - The Next Major Shift in Cloud Computing In 2014, Amazon announced a new form of compute called Lambda. We didn't know it at the time, but this represented a fundamental shift in what we expect from cloud computing. Now, all of the major cloud computing vendors want to take part in this disruptive technology. In his session at 20th Cloud Expo, John Jelinek IV, an instructor at Linux Academy, will discuss why major players like AWS, Microsoft Azure, IBM Bluemix, and Google Cloud Platform are all trying to sidestep VMs and containers with heavy investments in serverless computing, when most of the industry has its eyes on Docker and containers. Speaker Bio John Jelinek IV has been a web developer for more than half of his life on this planet. He is also super passionate about software freedom and the communities that form around open source software. You'l... (more)

Cloud-Native Apps | @CloudExpo #Cloud #DataCenter #SDN #IoT #M2M #API

Cloud-Native Apps Will Rule the World By Christine Cignoli We've come across a lot of talk about "cloud-native" apps lately. (They even have their own foundation!) Developers build these apps specifically to run on a cloud-based infrastructure, with the kind of user interface we all expect from our apps now. Cloud-native applications are scalable, usable and flexible, usually packaged using containers. It's a step further in the cloud computing journey, and a step away from the way we used to conceive of apps. Application development happened for many years inside an IT bubble, with a long development and deployment lifecycle. They were used only in-house, on desktop computers, which were also on a strict, and non-agile, refresh cycle. Things have changed. Businesses now depend as much, or more, on enterprise-grade applications, but the way apps are developed, deploy... (more)

Four Best Practices for Agile API Load Testing | @CloudExpo #API #Cloud #Agile

Four Best Practices for Agile API Load Testing By PJ Stevens One important organizational point of Agile API delivery is the concept of a team producing a usable version - which should result in the improved alignment of development, QA, and technical operations teams. Perhaps an even larger benefit of Agile is that it allows teams to effectively manage change in both external and software functionality, while simultaneously accelerating the development of quality software. Part of the challenge with managing this change, however, is providing quick feedback on when the change in software happens, and its resulting impact. You may be familiar with the mantra, "test early and often." It's an approach that is closely aligned with the waterfall methodology. In waterfall terminology, "early" means "before the software is transitioned to QA." This mantra is largely inaccu... (more)
