Continuous Integration (CI) For Cloud Computing

CI server allows builds to be run in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2)

Atlassian Session at Cloud Expo

Atlassian, maker of software development and collaboration tools, announced the release of JIRA Studio 2.0, a hosted, fully-integrated suite of tools for development teams.

Studio 2.0 now includes JIRA 4, the latest version of Atlassian's popular issue tracker, and Bamboo, a continuous integration (CI) server that allows builds to be run in the Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2).

These latest improvements make JIRA Studio a complete, hassle-free solution for fast-moving development teams that want to focus on building software rather than maintaining tool infrastructure.

“JIRA Studio combines Atlassian's most popular development tools with Subversion source control in a fully-integrated system to let development teams get up and running in minutes," said Mike Cannon-Brookes, Atlassian co-founder and CEO. “Organizations are realizing that hosting their development tools is secure and efficient and are increasingly turning to solutions like JIRA Studio to save time and hassles.”

What's new in 2.0
At the heart of JIRA Studio 2.0 is JIRA 4, the latest release of Altassian’s bug tracking, agile planning and project management suite. The introduction of OpenSocial dashboards allows users to create customized dashboards containing information from any of the applications included in JIRA Studio, as well as external applications such as Gmail and Google Calendars.

The new JIRA Query Language (JQL) enables team members to run complex queries using a simple SQL-like syntax enhanced with auto-completion, and then save and share their reports anywhere.

JIRA Studio includes the latest agile planning and tracking features of Greenhopper, a popular JIRA plugin. Teams can manage multiple product backlogs and then assign tasks to iterations using a simple drag-and-drop interface. Burndown charts can be displayed in any dashboard, and task-tracking is done by simply dragging tasks between customized states like "To Do," "In Progress" and "Done." JIRA Studio supports the most popular agile methods including Scrum, Kanban, Lean and Extreme Programming, without forcing a team into a specific approach.

CI Builds in the Cloud
JIRA Studio 2.0 now includes Atlassian Bamboo, a continuous integration server that supports running builds in the Amazon EC2 cloud. With Bamboo, teams can run as many customized "build agents" as they want using EC2 resources and only pay for the time that their build agents are running. Build agents can be started and shut down based on known peaks in demand, and the Amazon Machine Images (AMIs) can be customized to include any tools needed, such as compilers and automated testing.

“The addition of Bamboo to JIRA Studio makes it the most complete on-demand offering available to development teams today,” Cannon-Brookes said. “With Studio and their IDEs of choice, a development team has all the tools they need.

In an age of borderless networks, security for the cloud and security for the corporate network can no longer be separated. Security teams are now presented with the challenge of monitoring and controlling access to these cloud environments, as they represent yet another frontier for cyber-attacks. Complete visibility has never been more important-or more difficult. Powered by AI, Darktrace's Enterprise Immune System technology is the only solution to offer real-time visibility and insight into all parts of a network, regardless of its configuration. By learning a ‘pattern of life' for all networks, devices, and users, Darktrace can detect threats as they arise and autonomously respond in real time - all without impacting server performance.
Today, Kubernetes is the defacto standard if you want to run container workloads in a production environment. As we set out to build our next generation of products, and run them smoothly in the cloud, we needed to move to Kubernetes too! In the process of building tools like KubeXray and GoCenter we learned a whole bunch. Join this talk to learn how to get started with Kubernetes and how we got started at JFrog building our new tools. After the session you will know: How we got to Kubernetes (and why we chose it)
In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It's clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we've lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the...
