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)
DevOps Summit at Cloud Expo 2014 Silicon Valley was a terrific event for us.
The Qubell booth was crowded on all three days.
We ran demos every 30 minutes with folks lining up to get a seat and usually
standing around. It was great to meet and talk to over 500 people!
My keynote was well received and so was Stan's joint presentation with
RingCentral on Devops for BigData.
I also participated in two Power Panels - ‘Women in Technology' and ‘Why
DevOps Is Even More Important than You Think,' both featuring brilliant
colleagues and moderators and it was a blast to be a part of.

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 bac... (more)
Part 1 - How do I get started making the transition to DevOps?
I am an ops guy. I have been in Ops since I started my career a long time
ago. I still remember the glorious days of being the new guy on the Ops team
and getting stuck with changing backup tapes. I remember moving servers in
the wee small hours of the morning, upgrades that went horribly wrong with no
prayer of reverting, and the joys and pains that went with being in
operations, and really what we would call "Legacy IT" in general. It's like
the opposite of "Cheers", because you want to be where NO ONE knows your
Behind the Scenes of the 5th State of DevOps Report
As I have mentioned many times, I've learned more doing this project than any
project in my professional career. This has been a four-year collaboration
with Jez Humble and Dr. Nicole Forsgren, as well as Nigel Kersten and Alanna
Brown from Puppet Labs.
"I only got four hours of sleep last night. I woke up after an anxiety dream
about deadlocks in the database."
Anyone who has run an online service probably knows this feeling. And this is
what Jez Humble wrote on our Slack channel, 24 hours before the launch of
the 5th annual S... (more)
