Vendor-Side DevOps Practices Can Still Deliver Better Value While Client-Side Government Processes Catch Up


With the private sector making the cultural and technological shift to better DevOps practices, it was only a matter of time before private providers to government clients began to probe how DevOps practices can positively impact application delivery for DoD (and other) clients. Government software acceptance processes are in place for a reason, but it can hinder the continuous delivery methodology that is at the core of DevOps strategy. Big Data Cloud Computing devops

Are you ready for Microservices?

Perficient - Digital Transformation

Over 70% of organizations are investigating microservices adoption, but many are encountering challenges to success in achieving these goals with the additional strain on IT to be more agile, adopt new technology, and embrace DevOps. CI/CD automation and a DevOps culture.

The O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference Call for Participation


Devops, operations, deployment, Continuous Delivery. Caching, load balancing, optimization. By Bob Gourley. Friends at O’Reilly Media have just alerted me to a call for participation in the O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference, which will be held 17-19 March in Boston MA (see: [link] ). More info is below: The O’Reilly Software Architecture Conference Call for Participation.

Weekly Update 5-20-2019

Linux Academy

This week, we’re diving into brand new DevOps courses. Implementing an Auto Scaling Group and Application Load Balancer in AWS. Ansible Setup, Configure, and Ad Hoc Commands Deep Dive : Modern DevOps culture requires both automation and configuration management.

Digital Transformation in a Global Manufacture Organization

Perficient - Digital Transformation

To ensure the goal of cost-effective, quick response to business change and simplified operation, we designed a series of solutions based on micro-service, light-weight Javascript framework (with Wechat), API gateway, security, load balance, and high availability.

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).

The Business Case Justification for PaaS

Perficient - Digital Transformation

Automated provisioning and builds – CI/CD, DevOps. Operational services – security, logging, dynamic routing, load balancing, etc. The well-known public case studies for Netflix and Google for example chronical their moves to technology such as cloud computing, DevOps, and containers. A collaborative approach to migrating applications to PaaS leads to a more comprehensive solution and encourages a culture shift to a DevOps operational style.

AIOps and our Robot Kubernetes Kops

Linux Academy

On the heals of the still wet DevOps movement we are introduced to the new era of DevOps that reaches beyond pipeline automation and into the realm of pipeline evolution. AIOps is the culmination of the DevOps pipeline automation to accommodate this need for automated and continuous deployment as well as automated and continuous scaling.

Getting Started with Kubernetes Using Minikube

Linux Academy

Working in technology, whether that be software development, DevOps, or system administration, you’ve undoubtedly heard of Kubernetes. Let’s expose our deployment behind a load-balancing service: $ kubectl expose deployment webserver-deployment --type=LoadBalancer --port=80 service/webserver-deployment exposed. We want our service to expose port 80 from our deployment’s containers behind a load balancer and this command will achieve just that.

Liveblog: DockerCon 2015 Day 2 General Session

Scott Lowe

Chris Buckley, Director of DevOps at Business Insider, took the stage to provide an overview of how Business Insider (BI) started using Docker. The current GSA applications look like stovepipes that often implement replicated services using different technologies and solutions (different RDMS solutions, different load balancers, duplicate identity/access management solutions). This is a liveblog from the day 2 general session at DockerCon 2015.

Technology Short Take #48

Scott Lowe

Matt Oswalt recently wrapped up his 3-part “DevOps for Networking” series. The “gotcha” is that these software stacks haven’t been written yet, so the idea of repurposing hardware from switch to firewall to load balancer is still a bit of a unicorn. Welcome to Technology Short Take #48, another installation in my irregularly-published series that collects links, articles, and thoughts from around the web.
