Reflect adds color to Puppet DevOps tools

Source – techtarget.com Data visualization specialist Reflect enlivens the growing Puppet DevOps tool portfolio, but it’s unclear if Puppet’s wares will catch enterprise customers’ attention in a busy marketplace. The purchase of Reflect, a startup company based in Portland, Ore., shows that Puppet has little choice but to reinvent itself as containers pull users’ attention away from traditional configuration management, analysts said. Data visualization, a way to portray data so that it’s easily understood by people, will also be increasingly important

Serverless continuous deployment for the AWS crowd: Feeding time in Lambda-land

Source – theregister.co.uk Continuous Lifecycle “You’ll never go hungry if you know AWS,” one of the workshop participants at the Continuous Lifecycle* devops-focused conference in London remarked. Mike Roberts, co-founder of consultancy Symphonia Cloud, was behind the lectern yesterday afternoon, preparing to conduct a tour of serverless continuous deployment on AWS. Such sentiment is transitory in the tech industry. In the mainframe era, people used to say, “Nobody ever got fired for buying IBM.” Today, that has become: “IBM fires everybody.” Nonetheless, AWS looks like

Improve the rapid application development model for deployment readiness

Source – techtarget.com The rapid application development model aims for accurate deployments, as does DevOps as an IT methodology. It would seem the two concepts are natural partners, but that’s not always the case. Development and operations specialists have to work to unite RAD and DevOps, or risk devaluing both. RAD, which is a version of continuous development, creates an efficient pipeline for changes to travel from development into production. As software complexities increase, and the possible deployment platforms for a program multiply,

DevOps or Agile: Which do software developers prefer?

Source – itweb.co.za While Agile is by far the most popular software development methodology, high-performing software development teams are more likely to have a DevOps culture.

Why software resilience should be the real goal of DevOps

Source – techtarget.com Years ago, I worked for an organization that prided itself on its internal controls for software. Using a work order, developers had to get every box checked and then outline the steps to move the code to production. If there was a problem, systems would be down, and any “fix” would require a similar rigorous — and documented — process. That single-minded focus on reliability meant we had to batch changes together into projects and roll out less often. It became a

The Two Key Ways to Monitor DevOps Projects

Source – itbusinessedge.com One of the chief challenges in monitoring DevOps projects is the fact that the resulting application or service is usually pushed out to the cloud or a mobile platform. In many cases, this involves third-party infrastructure and/or monitoring solutions, which can leave the enterprise blind to key performance data. To accommodate this, DevOps teams will need to incorporate two practices that aim to gauge performance across distributed architectures: synthetic monitoring and real user monitoring (RUM). The difference lies in the
