Why Amazon and Red Hat are the two biggest winners in enterprise cloud

Source – techrepublic.com In picking winners in the cloud wars, Amazon Web Services (AWS) is the most obvious choice. As the resident hegemon, it’s hard to argue with a company that has accelerated its growth over the past two quarters on top of a run-rate that dwarfs that of all other vendors…combined. No, this doesn’t mean that Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud Platform (GCP) are doomed—each is carving out differentiation that should see them scoop up market share and billions in

Interview: CyberArk tells why DevOps must adopt ‘secure innovation by the numbers’

Source – securitybrief.com.au DevOps is becoming a major force across software development. For various reasons, security can be sidelined until far later in the development process – but there’s also a movement that is putting security rightly where it belongs – at the beginning. That’s the essence of DevSecOps, which maintains that security by design should be central to any strategy. Elizabeth Lawler is CyberArk’s vice president of DevOps Security. She was the former CEO of Conjur – a DevOps security startup

Linux-Friendly Arduino Simplifies IoT Development

Source – eetimes.com Arduino’s support for Linux IoT devices and single-board computers (SBCs) announced at the Embedded Linux Conference+Open IoT Summit NA in March cemented Arduino’s focus on cloud-connected IoT development, extending its reach into edge computing. This move was likely driven by multiple factors — increased complexity of IoT solutions and, secondarily, by more interest in Arduino boards running Linux. In a “blending” of development communities for the masses — Arduino, Raspberry Pi, and BeagleBone — Arduino’s support for Linux-based boards lowers

Red Hat Positions PaaS as Cure to Heal DevOps Divide

Source – devops.com Red Hat is making a strategic bet that IT organizations increasingly will rely on platform-as-a-service (PaaS) environments to make a broad range of distributed services available to developers, which would eliminate friction without enabling IT operations teams to maintain control. Paul Cormier, president of products and technologies for Red Hat, said IT organizations are realizing PaaS environments such as OpenShift have evolved into a platform through which a broad range of curated distributed services can be exposed to

From One-Size-Fits-All to Custom-Fit for IT Ops

Source – devops.com Here is how enterprise IT Ops used to work: you would make your choice among the Big Four vendors and buy in (quite literally!) to their strategy. This meant a suite of products that came preintegrated (more or less) out of the box, and—at least on the sales proposal—covered all of an IT organization’s needs across a huge spectrum of activities. Broadly speaking, each of the Big Four’s suites included some flavor of the following: monitoring, ticketing, configuration

How Microsoft, Google, AWS and Facebook are battling to democratise AI for developers

Source – computerworlduk.com Developer conference season is in full flow, with Facebook’s F8 last week and Microsoft Build, Google I/O and Amazon Web Services holding a London Summit this week, and they all had one thing in common: the goal of making AI technology more accessible for developers on their platforms. The big three cloud vendors made a slew of announcements this week, although AWS holds back most of its good stuff for re:Invent in Las Vegas later on in the year,

DevOps thinking means service-centric security

Source – jaxenter.com Unless you are a stunt professional, you need four round wheels on a car to make it roll. The same goes for today’s business-critical services, with their range of ephemeral services interacting with virtual and physical systems. A failure of any inter-related service element will destroy the digital experience that the line of business is banking on. Instead of DevOps delivering promised agility, it increases friction with new points of blindness and breakage. DevOps models spin up microservices,

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. That was one of the findings of the Gitlab Global Developer Survey which took place towards the end of 2017. Of the 5 300 software professionals from around the world who participated in the survey, about 1.5% were from Africa. The majority of respondents were from Europe (46%) and North America (36%).

How DevOps makes rapid deployment a reality

Source – itproportal.com Traditional software release cycles are no longer suitable for the pace of the modern workplace. In order to adapt to challenges effectively, businesses must have access to suitably agile software. However, it has long been believed that development speed can only be enhanced by reducing security, as there simply isn’t enough time to test and secure software when the release timeframe is reduced from months to minutes. This is where DevOps comes in. By combining the talents of
