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 c... (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.
We have been indoctrinated in the last three decades of IT to believe that a
system slowdown, outage, failure, change, or anything that has material

iterate and build as fast as possible without fear of the potential failure.
And why? Because its the only way to keep pace with the demands that the
business, the market, the consumer, and our customers place on us.
I spent 20 years in traditional corporate IT, and during that time I ... (more)
One of the things that is bugging me about DevOps and the current
conversations about it, is that they are all really heavily Dev focused and
talk a lot about tools as they relate to the developer. This isn't a bad
thing, but I find myself asking constantly where's the Ops in DevOps!? As an
operations person (as I spoke about in my first blog in the series) I really
want to speak for the other side of the coin and talk about the ways to marry
the Dev concepts of continuous release, test-as-you-go, and agile development
into the more static and often rigid world that traditional o... (more)
In today’s digital age, business innovation is largely driven by software
delivery. To win, serve and retain customers, organizations must release
application updates at an increasingly faster pace and in a more agile
manner. Large enterprises find they have to compete with Silicon Valley
unicorns to stay relevant, and are encountering unique challenges as they
strive to release faster—while ensuring quality, compliance and security.
Customers in the Financial Services (FinServ) sector, for example, need to be
able to guarantee zero downtime to their end users, lest they be expose... (more)
