Hybrid clouds: building out orchestration, middleware, DevOps and management tooling

Source – siliconangle.com Hybrid clouds are a necessary step, but often a transitional one, for enterprises that are evolving toward more complete reliance on public clouds. If you sifted through vendor announcements from the recent Red Hat Summit, you’ll find ample corroboration of this trend. In their efforts to help customers converge their investments in hybrid-cloud platforms, tooling and services, Red Hat Inc. and its partners are making significant investments in four key capabilities: container orchestration, integration middleware, DevOps pipeline tooling and

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 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,

How Kubernetes allows developers to deploy without worrying about DevOps

Source – siliconangle.com As an active distributor of the Kubernetes container orchestration management system, Canonical Ltd is giving developers a way to step up their game. The company is taking away the developer operations component to the developer job so they are free to focus on other important aspects of development that they have more expertise in, according to Stephan Fabel (pictured), director of product management at Canonical. “… We’ve been very active in this space fairly early on and have been an active distributor of Kubernetes and a

DevOps in Government: Balancing Velocity and Security

Source – meritalk.com The Federal government isn’t known for its progressive approach to IT infrastructure, and agencies aren’t usually early tech adopters. Yet, agencies are increasingly deploying cutting-edge DevOps methodologies to achieve agility and reduce operating costs. The Department of Homeland Security, General Services Administration, Environmental Protection Agency and Veterans Affairs are among those breaking the mold. They’re modernizing IT infrastructures, and taking strong steps forward in the digital transformation journey. But that doesn’t come without risk. Several government agencies and organizations–including the

DevOps is Old News. DevProd is the Future

Source – devops.com DevOps has been widely embraced and isn’t going away. However, there’s a new software movement emerging that deserves headlines of its own. Let’s call it DevProd. In a recent Harvard Business Review article, “Agile at Scale,” the authors point out that “conditions are ripe for agile teams in any situation where problems are complex, solutions are at first unclear, project requirements are likely to change, close collaboration with end users is feasible, and creative teams will outperform command-and-control groups.”

Get started with AIOps tools

Source – techtarget.com CIOs often lament the number of people and the portion of their budget devoted to keeping the lights on. These are the tasks of IT operations — necessary, but not visible. CIOs would prefer to take charge of innovative projects that bring high value to their organization, but they’re judged by the unglamorous and unexciting uptime and performance stats of underlying computer systems, especially systems tied to revenue generation. Keeping the lights on is quite important to people

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

Why management thinks your DevOps implementation is great

Source – techtarget.com According to a survey of 5,296 development professionals, the three toughest challenges around DevOps implementation probably won’t surprise anyone. GitLab’s 2018 Global Developer Report indicates it’s still hard to choose the right technology, get clear directions from management and change long-standing habits. But what might surprise folks is the apparent disconnect between management and developers on what a successful DevOps implementation looks like — and how easy it is, or isn’t. “I was surprised to see that managers and

Study: DevOps Servers In The Wild Highlight Infrastructure Security Needs

Source – tripwire.com A mature DevOps practice involves applying multiple tools at different steps of the delivery pipeline, and a new study from IntSights focuses on these tools that may be open to attack on the Internet. Each new tool added to your process can expand your attack surface area – and, in many cases, new development and delivery tools are being used without oversight from a security team. With complex tools being used in each DevOps step, potential attack vectors and the risk of

Are You Protecting Your DevOps Software ‘Factory’?

Source – darkreading.com A new study out today shows that DevSecOps could stand to use a healthier dose of OpSec, as many DevOps tools are left exposed on the public Internet with little to no security controls. So much of the education about the intersection of DevOps and security focuses on application security testing and secure development practices. But DevSecOps is about more than just securing the software product itself. It’s also crucial to protect the “factory” that produces those applications — namely,

What tools are needed to build a DevOps management model?

Source – techtarget.com Traditionally, application development and IT operations teams have been separate entities focused on their individual core competencies. In recent years, however, as organizations re-evaluate their approaches to IT to optimize processes, there has been a shift toward more collaboration across development and operations groups. The result of this collaboration is an approach called DevOps. In a DevOps management model, the development and operations teams work together through the entire lifecycle — from design through post-deployment production support. Such a
