OverOps Brings Machine Learning to DevOps

Source – devops.com OverOps has launched a namesake platform employing machine learning algorithms to capture data from an IT environment that identify potential issues before a DevOps team decides to promote an application into production. Company CTO Tal Weiss said the OverOps Platform is unique in that, rather than relying on log data, it combines static and dynamic analysis of code as it executes to detect issue. That data then can be accessed either via dashboards or shared with other tools via an

Successfully Integrating DevOps while Deploying Cloud Applications

Source – devops.com Transforming to a high-performance DevOps environment can provide competitive advantages, but it requires change—and that doesn’t come easily to most organizations. DevOps requires cultural changes that are inherent to automating previously manual tasks: They are perhaps intimidating to those involved and they require flexibility and enterprisewide buy-in to get right. Furthering these people-side transformational complications are cloud application deployments, creating a need for enterprises to deliver innovative technologies and services with greater speed and quality—without hits to reliability

Serverless Computing: Moving from DevOps to NoOps

Source – devops.com While some organizations do better than others when it comes to implementing DevOps, almost everyone agrees it’s a concept easier penned to paper than pinned to reality. The idea of integrating development and operations is smart, but the implementation proves troublesome. A replacement option is thus largely welcomed by developers everywhere. Enter the new concept of NoOps, which means dropping operations from any consideration during the development cycle. It’s not that operations are being ignored; that would be

What Can the Cloud Do for DevOps?

Source – devops.com The cloud has enabled DevOps to grow and expand well beyond traditional boundaries set forth by on-premises production environments. With Amazon Web Services (AWS) and other cloud services providers, DevOps devices are intended to speed advancement by empowering engineers to change, test and push code in a computerized design. This enables organizations to create and send administrations and applications significantly faster than in traditional development environments. Organizations following DevOps and continuous delivery (CD) practices follow various approaches such

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
