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

Serverless deployment lifts enterprise DevOps velocity

Source – techtarget.com Serverless deployment isn’t just for startups anymore. Mainstream companies have revved up DevOps velocity and slashed IT operations overhead with the addition of serverless technologies to underpin new apps. These companies, which base modern apps on AWS Lambda, OpenWhisk and Google Cloud Functions, say that serverless deployment abstracts the underlying cloud infrastructure completely from app developers, and lets DevOps teams focus on business logic and application code instead of infrastructure management. But while serverless deployment can pay off, so far,

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

AWS development services push apps from code to production

Source – techtarget.com Automation is one of DevOps’ core components. It enables enterprise development teams to adopt a more standardized, error-resistant approach to software delivery. Although there are a range of automation tools on the market, native AWS development services can help teams work together to quickly ship quality software. But before teams adopt these services, which include CodeCommit, CodeBuild and CodeDeploy, it’s important to understand how they work together in an AWS deployment pipeline. In a traditional build-and-release process, code checks into a

DevOps will make the government more efficient. But what actually is it?

Source – fedscoop.com The problem with buzzwords is that they tend to accumulate a diversity of definitions depending on the user. So when Red Hat’s Josh Ranoa opened his “Open Innovation: Make DevOps a Reality” panel at the company’s recent Government Symposium by asking panelists to define DevOps, it seemed an interesting, if basic, starting point. What the audience learned moments later, though, was actually quite intriguing. That’s because every panelist, each involved in some way in bringing the increasingly popular DevOps practices to their respective agencies, defined the
