21 DevOps and Docker Reference Architectures
When building DevOps or continuous delivery practices you can learn a great
deal from others. What choices did they make, what practices did they put
in place, and how did they connect the dots?
At Sonatype, we pulled together a set of 21 reference architectures for
folks building continuous delivery and DevOps practices using Docker. Why?
After 3,000 DevOps professionals attended our webinar on "Continuous
Integration using Docker" discussing just one reference architecture example,
we recognized there was a strong interest in the community to learn more.
That's why we assembled 20 more reference architectures into this
A picture speaks a thousand words, but beyond the images, we also share the
details of each DevOps/CD Docker reference architecture. In the bottom
right corner of each slide, we share the... (more)

Catchpoint Systems, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 18t... (more)
At its core DevOps is all about collaboration. The lines of communication
must be opened and it takes some effort to ensure that they stay that way.
It's easy to pay lip service to trends and talk about implementing new
methodologies, but without action, real benefits cannot be realized. Success
requires planning, advocates empowered to effect change, and, of course, the
To bring about a cultural shift it's important to share challenges. In simple
terms, ensuring that everyone knows what everyone else is doing can create a
real team spirit and social cohesion that will drive DevOps forward. Here are
six tips that can be implemented to help you get there.
A daily team meeting where people get an opportunity to review their progress
by addressing three simple questions:
What did I do yesterday? What will I do today? What might block me fro... (more)
DevOps is speeding towards the IT world like a freight train and the hype
around it is deafening. There is no reason to be afraid of this change as it
is the natural reaction to the agile movement that revolutionized development
just a few years ago. By definition, DevOps is the natural alignment of IT
performance to business profitability. The relevance of this has yet to be
quantified but it has been suggested that the route to the CEO's chair will
come from the IT leaders that successfully make the transition to a DevOps
model. If this still seems foreign to you, I recommend reading up on DevOps
Blog from IT Revolution, the OpsCode Blog, and check out The Phoenix Project.
Despite all the talk around simple monitoring tools, breaking through the
walls between Dev and Ops still poses a real challenge. This is because of a
misunderstanding around Operations real purp... (more)
Everyone and their mother does a light blog before the holidays. US
Thanksgiving lends itself well to Thank You's and Turkeys. Here are my top
five of each:
Cisco – A big thank you goes out to Cisco for changing the industry
dialogue to something that puts applications first. You can debate hardware
vs. software, deep integration vs. loose federations, and single-vendor vs.
multi-vendor. But at the end of the day, their ACI launch was about putting
applications first, simplifying edge policy, and orchestrating workload
resources across disparate parts of the infrastructure. Forgetting the
specific merits or flaws of the design, this is an important shift. And when
Cisco helps change the focus for the industry (and uses its marketing might
to help), that is good for everyone.
Juniper – Another big thank you goes out to a big incumbent. Juniper proves
that even the ... (more)
Slow Is the New Down: Keep Your Business in Business, By Ensuring Successful
Your business relies on your applications and your employees to stay in
business. Whether you develop apps or manage business critical apps that help
fuel your business, what happens when users experience sluggish performance?
You and all technical teams across the organization - application, network,
operations, among others, as well as, those outside the organization, like
ISPs and third-party providers - are called in to solve the problem.
In his General Session at @DevOpsSummit at 18th Cloud Expo, Sean Armstrong,
Vice President of Products at AppNeta, will discuss the root cause of
performance issues and how innovative solutions are bridging the gap between
siloed technical teams as well as outside providers. Explore what arsenal of
tools is needed to help ensure a suc... (more)

In her session at DevOps Summit, Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks,
focused on how microservices are changing the underlying architectures needed
to scale, secure and deliver applications based on highly distributed (micro)
services and why that means an expansion into "the network" for DevOps.
Lori MacVittie is responsible for education and evangelism of application
services available across F5's entire product suite. Her role includes

DevOps Summit 2015 New York, co-located with the 16th International Cloud
Expo - to be held June 9-11, 2015, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY
- announces that it is now accepting Keynote Proposals.
The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in
enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and
collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for
long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch.
DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.
The DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo will expand the DevOps community, enable a
wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers
alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development
time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support
time generally. Tim... (more)
In my last post I spoke about the concept that Operations needs to understand
and embrace the ____ as a service model (viewable here). The concept is
difficult, but the reason it has to happen is that it is the most core tenant
of DevOps, and it is the only way organizations will be able to truly drive
digital transformation. This matters more than ever, because in the new
digital wasteland we live in, failing to transform is agreeing to die.
Transform or Die
That sounds a bit heavy handed, but it has a lot of logic behind it for the
operator and for all of us trying to take back IT. Transform or
Die developed from a presentation I gave last year a Strata+Hadoop in
Singapore for their inaugural Pecha Kucha session on opening night, that I
called "Get out of your developer's way". My basic premise was that the
digital revolution has already happened and now we find... (more)
