DevOps and Hybrid Infrastructure Synergy

Cloud Musings

(This post first appeared in IBM's Point B and Beyond ) The definition of DevOps emphasizes collaboration and communication between software developers and other IT professionals while automating the software delivery and infrastructure change process. While agile software development and the use of automated infrastructure configuration tools stand proudly in the DevOps spotlight, little has been said about the actual infrastructure that modern tools such as Puppet and Chef automate.

Developing a PaaS Migration Strategy

Perficient Data & Analytics

In this blog we will look at the steps to create a migration strategy to PaaS including re-platforming legacy applications. Re-platforming applications includes lift-and-shift (containerizing) applications with minor changes, refactoring applications to adhere to twelve factor app guidelines and complete application rewrites to best leverage native cloud and DevOps. This most often translates to migrating customer-facing applications first.

An Inside Look At AWS Secrets Manager vs Parameter Store

Linux Academy

Secrets Manager is a service that helps you protect access to your applications, services, and IT resources. This service enables you to easily rotate, manage, and retrieve database credentials, API keys, and other secrets throughout their lifecycle. Using Secrets Manager, you can secure, audit, and manage secrets used to access resources in the AWS Cloud, on third-party services, and on-premises. Another important similarity is managed key/value store services.

AWS Lambda Versioning and Aliases

Linux Academy

As I detailed in a previous blog post, I’m continuing to update the Linux Academy AWS DevOps Pro certification course. In AWS, we work a lot with infrastructure: VPCs, EC2 instances, Auto Scaling Groups, Load Balancers (Elastic, Application, or Network). As DevOps Engineers, we are required to wear several different hats. I have been updating my AWS DevOps Professional Certification course and Lambda versioning and aliases is one of the new areas of focus.

Basically, using the tools within AWS, we create service profiles within the accounts and restrict what services they can and can’t use. Our end game is to eventually create a migration factory where we have a framework to take our on-prem applications and migrate them to AWS.

Here are some things I am eager to hear more about: Chef Habitat : Chef has had the “infrastructure as code” and “compliance as code” story lines solidified for some time, but only in the past year has the Habitat “managing applications as code” story really started to coalesce in a meaningful way. ChefConf 2019 kicks off in Chef’s (and my) hometown of Seattle in less than two weeks on May 20th.

The Business Case Justification for PaaS

Perficient - Digital Transformation

Within the cloud delivery models Platform as a Service (PaaS), the model providing the facilities for full life cycle application development, has a smaller overall market share than IaaS or SaaS. Private PaaS, containerization and data-intensive applications are fueling the PaaS growth rate. PaaS service offerings have matured and many of the latest platform announcements by the large cloud vendors have shifted from IaaS to PaaS.

The Story of Apollo - Amazon’s Deployment Engine

All Things Distributed

Automated deployments are the backbone of a strong DevOps environment. When making the move to a service-oriented architecture, Amazon refactored its software into small independent services and restructured its organization into small autonomous teams. Each team took on full ownership of the development and operation of a single service, and they worked directly with their customers to improve it. The applications cannot afford any downtime, planned or otherwise.
