DevOps Summit New York Sessions Included

Opening Keynote | A New State of the Art
By John Michelsen

Enterprises build applications with the latest tools, people and processes yet failures riddle the headlines. If state of the art fails us, it means we need a "New State of the Art". DevOps hopes to instill a new culture that defines the new way of managing application delivery. It's time Enterprise IT learns from every other industry and begins to use simulation, supply chain governance, continuous delivery and feedback loops to build better products. [continued]

Speaker Bio: John Michelsen, CTO CA Technologies. As the Chief Technology Officer of CA Technologies, John is responsible for technical leadership and innovation, further developing the company's technical community, and aligning its software strategy, architecture and partner relationships to deliver customer value. [continued]

Alice In Wonderland - Is the Network the Next Frontier for DevOps?
By John Willis

Around 6 years ago I started working with some tools that focused on software engineering collaboration and automation for operations.

At the time products like CFEngine and Puppet were the two main tools promoting this new way of sharing within operations and software development.

A year later Chef was born and I was fortunate enough to join Opscode as the 9th employee as an evangelist preaching this disruptive form of collaboration and automation. At the time a majority of IT infrastructure was managed by what I called the "Bob's" of the world. Bob's scripts, Bob's directories and Bob to death do us part. Trying to explain to Bob the benefits of collaboration and software engineering principles was a hard fought battle over the years.

One of the compelling events that helped propel these ideas (what we now call DevOps) was cloud computing. Fast forward to 2014 and these infrastructure automation and collaboration battles still exist but the battles are far less bloody.

Now a new battle is emerging in the network operations and networking engineering space. The arguments for network operations adopting these principles is the same as system ops; however, now the new compelling events are the virtualization and softwarization of the network.

Software Defined Networks SDN/SDDC is all the buzz, but the reality is that many network operations and engineering groups are dealing with an influx of highly virtualized tooling like OpenVswitch and Openflow and projects lie OpenDaylight, Contrail and NSX.

Configuration tools are starting to get more sophisticated on these virtualized systems doing things like automated os hardening, switch configuration, vlan and port mapping, and high order overlay orchestration. Products like Chef and Puppet both have introduced primitives supporting platforms like Arista, Juniper and Cumulus Networks.

Please join me to help me start the discussion of what DevOps in the Network really means. [continued]

Speaker Bio: John Willis is the VP of Customer Enablement for Stateless Networks. Willis, a 30-year systems management veteran, joined Stateless Networks from Dell where he was Chief DevOps evangelist.

Willis, a noted expert on agile philosophies in systems management, came to Dell as part of their Enstratius acquisition. At Enstratius, Willis was the VP of Customer Enablement responsible for product support and services for the multi-cloud management platform. During his career, he has held positions at Opscode and also founded Gulf Breeze Software, an award-winning IBM business partner specializing in deploying Tivoli technology for the enterprise.

Willis has worked in the IT management industry for more than 30 years. Prior to joining enStratus, Willis was the VP of Solutions for DTO Solutions where he led the transition to a new suite of automated infrastructure and DevOps solutions.

Prior to DTO Solutions. Willis was the Vice President of Training & Services at Opscode where he formalized the training, evangelism, and professional services functions at the firm. Willis also founded Gulf Breeze Software, an award winning IBM business partner, which specializes in deploying Tivoli technology for the enterprise.

A leading infrastructure management architect in the enterprise systems management category, Willis has trained more than 10,000 people on IBM Tivoli products around the world and is recognized as an industry expert in enterprise systems management and monitoring. Willis has authored six IBM Redbooks for IBM on enterprise systems management and was the founder and chief architect at Chain Bridge Systems.

John is known internationally for his IT Management and Cloud blog, JohnMWillis.com, and is the co-host of Redmonk's IT Management Guys podcast series as "Cloud Cafe". Willis is also an organizer of the wildly successful CloudCamp & OpsCamp unconference movements. [continued]

Are We Doing DevOps Right?
By Jeff Sussna

How do we know if we're doing DevOps right? Is there a checklist of tools we should deploy, meetings we should schedule, org charts we should implement?

How does cultural transformation relate to and guide tools and practices? [continued]

IT-as-a-Service and DevOps: Competitive or Cooperative Concepts?
By JP Morgenthal

It's the age old battle of top-down or bottom-up. IT-as-a-Service (ITaaS) is clearly being driven from the top down in organizations. Large vendors and consultants are working with their executive counterparts to change expectations for how IT provides services to the enterprise. DevOps, on the other hand, is the traditional bottom-up grassroots movement that like Linux and virtualization has disrupted the status quo and changed forever how IT services can be delivered. In this case, both efforts are working toward a common goal of agility and speed. So, will one effort supercede the other? Will they merge and deliver together? This session will explore the factors that contribute to dissension as well as union of these two efforts and what proponents from each camp should be doing to ensure success regardless. [continued]

Speaker Bio: JP Morgenthal is best described as "the voice of Enterprise IT" bringing insight to the application of technology and the real world complexity of delivering for large and mid-sized enterprises.

Is Orchestration the Next Big Thing in DevOps?
By Nati Shalom

DevOps processes (such as continuous deployment and delivery) often involve writing many custom scripts that are triggered by the build system. With that approach, it is relatively hard to trace the deployment process and troubleshoot when something goes wrong. Additionally, custom scripts are often not written in an easily understood manner. In this session we will walk through specific DevOps workflows (such as install, update, etc) using Riemann as the framework in subject and see the steps required to automate those processes. [continued]

The Dawning of Continuous Support
By Todd Vernon

Development teams have a tendency to think that once they push the deploy button, the release is done. But with DevOps, it's quite the opposite now. More software changes, and more deploys, make every production release a new piece of code with new idiosyncrasies. This has made what has historically been a more static production environment now highly dynamic. Teams have responded by layering in a lot of new monitoring and performance technologies, which has caused even more information overload. Continuous Deployment makes it easier to push code to production, and it has created an additional priority within the company - the need to provide Continuous Support. Continuous Support addresses the human side of how to harness your team in more effective ways, using new methodologies to adapt to a much different world. In this session, DevOps expert Todd Vernon, CEO of VictorOps, will outline best practices for implementing - and sustaining - Continuous Support. [continued]

Speaker Bio: Todd H. Vernon Founded VictorOps Inc. in 2012 and serves as its Chief Executive Officer.

Velocity and Volume (or Speed Wins)
By Adrian Cockcroft

As organizations and projects scale up, the patterns that seemed helpful at small scale start to get in the way and velocity suffers. To deliver at high velocity requires four things: first, a culture of innovation that can see and respond to opportunities; second, the data and analytics to evaluate alternatives; third, a culture that can make decisions and assign resources quickly; and fourth, agile development and self-service deployment.

DevOps Pay Raise: Quantifying the value of DevOps
By Dustin Whittle

DevOps, when done right, usually goes unnoticed. It's only when something breaks that all eyes turn to IT. If your boss only sees you when the app is down, however, that's not really doing your career any favors. In this session we'll talk about how to prove your value to the organization by looking at the positive side – that is, how much money you've saved your company. We'll take a look at how you can use tools like Chef, Puppet, Sensu and Logstash to quantify your value to your company. After this session, you'll be able to walk into a meeting with your boss ready to talk about your value to the company (and to ask for a raise). [continued]

Seamless Innovation: A New Cloud Reality for App Development
By Ravi Srivastav

A major reason for innovation sluggishness is friction and misalignment in the dev/ops process. What we'll speak to today is a whole new world of simplified, modular application development. ElasticBox is pioneering service-based application development, whereby fully configured components of an application architecture are encapsulated as "Boxes" and made available to developers as a service. Now, developers simply 1) Select the resources/boxes they require, 2) Stack their boxes to create the application architecture, and 3) Deploy the App. Because the boxes are fully encapsulated, they are reusable, can be versioned and updated, and are fully mobile across all major cloud environments. [continued]

HowDeliver Your Applications without a Hitch through Automated Change Validation
By Ian Kelly

Maintaining lower development environments can become an unbearable headache. Changes to an application, service or API are seldom completely testable, only leaving us to discover broken code when it's too late. This lack of visibility into application dependencies severely limits early code validation, having a direct impact on delivery cycles. While traditional methods of Change Management, Test Data Management and Test Scheduling has failed, there's now an opportunity to finally deliver on the vision of always available, always configured and always verifiable. The "software defined enterprise" through proper virtual services and API management now provides the building blocks to realize automated change validation. [continued]

@DevOpsSummit Stories
"Infoblox does DNS, DHCP and IP address management for not only enterprise networks but cloud networks as well. Customers are looking for a single platform that can extend not only in their private enterprise environment but private cloud, public cloud, tracking all the IP space and everything that is going on in that environment," explained Steve Salo, Principal Systems Engineer at Infoblox, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This leads to a waste of cloud resources and increased operational overhead.
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.

We all know that end users experience the Internet primarily with mobile devices. From an app development perspective, we know that successfully responding to the needs of mobile customers depends on rapid DevOps – failing fast, in short, until the right solution evolves in your customers' relationship to your business. Whether you’re decomposing an SOA monolith, or developing a new application cloud natively, it’s not a question of using microservices – not doing so will be a path to eventual business failure.
"Cloud4U builds software services that help people build DevOps platforms for cloud-based software and using our platform people can draw a picture of the system, network, software," explained Kihyeon Kim, CEO and Head of R&D at Cloud4U, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.

Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DX Expo within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throughout enterprises of all sizes.
Continuous Delivery makes it possible to exploit findings of cognitive psychology and neuroscience to increase the productivity and happiness of our teams. In his session at 22nd Cloud Expo | DXWorld Expo, Daniel Jones, CTO of EngineerBetter, will answer: How can we improve willpower and decrease technical debt? Is the present bias real? How can we turn it to our advantage? Can you increase a team’s effective IQ? How do DevOps & Product Teams increase empathy, and what impact does empathy have on productivity?
There is a huge demand for responsive, real-time mobile and web experiences, but current architectural patterns do not easily accommodate applications that respond to events in real time. Common solutions using message queues or HTTP long-polling quickly lead to resiliency, scalability and development velocity challenges. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ryland Degnan, a Senior Software Engineer on the Netflix Edge Platform team, will discuss how by leveraging a reactive stream-based protocol, we have been able to solve many of these problems at the communication layer. This makes it possible to create rich application experiences and support use-cases such as mobile-to-mobile communication and large file transfers that would be difficult or cost-prohibitive with traditional networking.
You know you need the cloud, but you're hesitant to simply dump everything at Amazon since you know that not all workloads are suitable for cloud. You know that you want the kind of ease of use and scalability that you get with public cloud, but your applications are architected in a way that makes the public cloud a non-starter. You're looking at private cloud solutions based on hyperconverged infrastructure, but you're concerned with the limits inherent in those technologies. What do you do?

"Opsani helps the enterprise adopt containers, help them move their infrastructure into this modern world of DevOps, accelerate the delivery of new features into production, and really get them going on the container path," explained Ross Schibler, CEO of Opsani, and Peter Nickolov, CTO of Opsani, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at DevOps Summit at 21st Cloud Expo, held Oct 31 – Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA.
identify the sources of event storms and performance anomalies will require automated, real-time root-cause analysis. I think Enterprise Management Associates said it well: “The data and metrics collected at instrumentation points across the application ecosystem are essential to performance monitoring and root cause analysis. However, analytics capable of transforming data and metrics into an application-focused report or dashboards are what separates actual application monitoring from relat...
These days, no matter what task you’re trying to accomplish within your online properties, chances are there’s at least one cloud solution that provides it. However, with so much of our personal and business data living now online, there’s perhaps no functionality more important than cloud security. With cyber attacks more prevalent than ever, it’s imperative that organizations – regardless of their size and scope – protect both themselves and their clients from nefarious individuals who prey on...
The benefits of automation are well documented; it increases productivity, cuts cost and minimizes errors. It eliminates repetitive manual tasks, freeing us up to be more innovative. By that logic, surely, we should automate everything possible, right? So, is attempting to automate everything a sensible - even feasible - goal? In a word: no. Consider this your short guide as to what to automate and what not to automate.
One problem that all developers and companies struggle with is trying to decide if they should "build it" or "buy it". Software developers love to build things. That is what we do! Their natural reaction tends to lean towards building things. We are also always up for a new challenge. There are very good reasons for building or buying software. There are also good reasons to use open source projects, which is a third option.
The question before companies today is not whether to become intelligent, it’s a question of how and how fast. The key is to adopt and deploy an intelligent application strategy while simultaneously preparing to scale that intelligence. In her session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sangeeta Chakraborty, Chief Customer Officer at Ayasdi, provided a tactical framework to become a truly intelligent enterprise, including how to identify the right applications for AI, how to build a Center of Excellence to oper...
DevOps teams have more on their plate than ever. As infrastructure needs grow, so does the time required to ensure that everything's running smoothly. This makes automation crucial - especially in the server and network monitoring world. Server monitoring tools can save teams time by automating server management and providing real-time performance updates. As budgets reset for the New Year, there is no better time to implement a new server monitoring tool (or re-evaluate your current solution)....
We just came off of a review of a product that handles both containers and virtual machines in the same interface. Under the covers, implementation of containers defaults to LXC, though recently Docker support was added. When reading online, or searching for information, increasingly we see “Container Management” products listed as competitors to Docker, when in reality things like Rocket, LXC/LXD, and Virtualization are Dockers competitors. After doing some looking around, we have decided tha...
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, whic...
Coca-Cola’s Google powered digital signage system lays the groundwork for a more valuable connection between Coke and its customers. Digital signs pair software with high-resolution displays so that a message can be changed instantly based on what the operator wants to communicate or sell. In their Day 3 Keynote at 21st Cloud Expo, Greg Chambers, Global Group Director, Digital Innovation, Coca-Cola, and Vidya Nagarajan, a Senior Product Manager at Google, discussed how from store operations and ...
In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Carl J. Levine, Senior Technical Evangelist for NS1, will objectively discuss how DNS is used to solve Digital Transformation challenges in large SaaS applications, CDNs, AdTech platforms, and other demanding use cases. Carl J. Levine is the Senior Technical Evangelist for NS1. A veteran of the Internet Infrastructure space, he has over a decade of experience with startups, networking protocols and Internet infrastructure, combined with the unique ability to it...
Cavirin Systems has just announced C2, a SaaS offering designed to bring continuous security assessment and remediation to hybrid environments, containers, and data centers. Cavirin C2 is deployed within Amazon Web Services (AWS) and features a flexible licensing model for easy scalability and clear pay-as-you-go pricing. Although native to AWS, it also supports assessment and remediation of virtual or container instances within Microsoft Azure, Google Cloud Platform (GCP), or on-premise. By dr...
While having a reliable monitoring solution for your application is important, being able to parametrize and configure thresholds and alerting is even more critical. No matter what kind of market your business is in, your web applications have seasonal patterns. For example, the load of a conventional airline ticketing system fluctuates heavily over the hours of the day, the day of the week, the month, and eventually a particular day of the year. Think about the travel difference between New ...
While we understand Agile as a means to accelerate innovation, manage uncertainty and cope with ambiguity, many are inclined to think that it conflicts with the objectives of traditional engineering projects, such as building a highway, skyscraper or power plant. These are plan-driven and predictive projects that seek to avoid any uncertainty. This type of thinking, however, is short-sighted. Agile approaches are valuable in controlling uncertainty because they constrain the complexity that ste...
Digital experience monitoring plays a vital role in the ecommerce economy. The industry is booming with millions of websites selling everything imaginable. Online stores are expected to be super fast and easy to navigate; users are quick to assess website performance and if said perceived performance is below expectations, they will quickly move on to competitor’s website.
DevOps promotes continuous improvement through a culture of collaboration. But in real terms, how do you: Integrate activities across diverse teams and services? Make objective decisions with system-wide visibility? Use feedback loops to enable learning and improvement? With technology insights and real-world examples, in his general session at @DevOpsSummit, at 21st Cloud Expo, Andi Mann, Chief Technology Advocate at Splunk, explored how leading organizations use data-driven DevOps to close th...
The nature of test environments is inherently temporary—you set up an environment, run through an automated test suite, and then tear down the environment. If you can reduce the cycle time for this process down to hours or minutes, then you may be able to cut your test environment budgets considerably. The impact of cloud adoption on test environments is a valuable advancement in both cost savings and agility. The on-demand model takes advantage of public cloud APIs requiring only payment for t...
For over ten years, DevOps has been taking the world by storm. It has made organizations step back, evaluate their processes and implement enterprise-wide cultural and infrastructural change. Vendors have followed suite, introducing an abundance of continuous delivery tools to facilitate this step-change. L.P Hartley famously quipped, ‘The past is a foreign country: they do things differently there' - words which resound more than ever as we more further into the digital age.
In this article, we'll cover how you can monitor an application that runs on the Java Virtual Machine by going over some of the critical metrics you need to track. And, as a monitoring tool, we'll use Stackify Retrace, a full APM solution. The application we'll monitor to exemplify these metrics is a real-world Java web application built using the Spring framework. Users can register, login, connect their Reddit account and schedule their posts to Reddit.
