Top 10 DevOps Influencers | @CloudEXPO #DevOps #Serverless #CloudNative #Docker #Kubernetes #Microservices

The graph represents a network of 1,329 Twitter users whose recent tweets contained "#DevOps", or who were replied to or mentioned in those tweets, taken from a data set limited to a maximum of 18,000 tweets. The network was obtained from Twitter on Thursday, 10 January 2019 at 23:50 UTC. The tweets in the network were tweeted over the 7-hour, 6-minute period from Thursday, 10 January 2019 at 16:29 UTC to Thursday, 10 January 2019 at 23:36 UTC. Additional tweets that were mentioned in this data set were also collected from prior time periods. These tweets may expand the complete time period of the data. There is an edge for each "replies-to" relationship in a tweet, an edge for each "mentions" relationship in a tweet, and a self-loop edge for each tweet that is not a "replies-to" or "mentions". The graph is directed. The graph's vertices were grouped by cluster using t... (more)

SYS-CON's 1st International Cloud Computing Conference & Expo: Show Report

Dmitry Sotnikov's Blog Overall, very exciting times, and a great event put together by the folks at SYS-CON! There was a lot of excitement and optimism throughout the event. As someone put it: cloud computing is about 700 days old. That means that there are a lot of arguments about definitions, and where things are going, and so on. And that also gives a lot of vibe and a lot of fresh community spirit. Below are my notes from all the sessions I attended at the last week’s Cloud Computing Expo 2008 on: Day 1 Day 2 Day 3 A few general comments on the conference. First and foremost, cloud computing is happening. There was a lot of excitement and optimism throughout the event. And frankly this was quite contrasting to the SOA keeping talking about whether SOA is getting anywhere, how to justify SOA projects, whether it is a journey or a destination, and so on. This was...

RightScale & New Relic Deliver Rails Performance Management in the Cloud

RightScale, the cloud manager, has integrated its platform with New Relic’s real-time RPM Ruby-on-Rails application performance management software. So RightScale users should be able to detect, diagnose, and fix performance problems with their cloud-borne Rails applications. CEO Michael Crandell says, “Ruby on Rails has always been one of the most popular development frameworks for web applications on the RightScale platform.” RPM is supposed to be a 10-second Rails plug-in install that can monitor the overall health of an application, detect potential performance problems that may impact customers, drill down to see the exact cause of the problem and integrate with application development and support tools. It’s reportedly used by 1,100 Rails organizations like the New York Jets and Getty Images to handle 12,000 production application instances. RightScale custome... (more)

CloudEXPO Stories
Where many organizations get into trouble, however, is that they try to have a broad and deep knowledge in each of these areas. This is a huge blow to an organization's productivity. By automating or outsourcing some of these pieces, such as databases, infrastructure, and networks, your team can instead focus on development, testing, and deployment. Further, organizations that focus their attention on these areas can eventually move to a test-driven development structure that condenses several long phases into a faster, more efficient process. This methodology has a name, of course: Continuous delivery. As Jones pointed out at CloudEXPO, continuous delivery allows developers to trim the fat off tasks and gives them more time to focus on the individual parts of the process. But remember-implementing this methodology requires organizations to offload management of databases, infrastruct...
