What went down at DevOpsCon 2017: All the goodies

DevOpsCon takeaways: Ops is more important than ever & automation can lead you astray

DevOpsCon 2017 is coming to an end but we’ve gathered enough intel to keep us out of DevOps trouble until our next DevOps-related event next year. We learned some rules about chaos engineering, we discovered that HTTP is not an ideal solution for microservices, we noted down some DevOps landmines and we found out that we shouldn’t rely on anything being stable, especially in the cloud. Let’s see what went down at DevOpsCon 2017.

DevOps for IoT: Getting ready for the next phase

IoT is a game-changer. But how can we ensure that its speed and efficiency will be utilized properly? In this article, Mukund Krishna explains why DevOps is the natural solution and will ensure a successful IoT adoption.

Interview with John Pocknell, Sr. Product Manager at Quest

“Moving database development to DevOps won’t happen by taking shortcuts”

DevOps has definitely “rocked” developers’ world but what’s next for database development teams, which still follow a traditional waterfall process? How can we make it easy to execute key database development functions within a DevOps workflow without compromising quality, performance or reliability? We talked with John Pocknell, Sr. Product Manager at Quest about the solution to this problem, the tools that should be part of any DevOps toolkit and more.

Tallying up the bill for DevOps

What is the true cost of a DevOps adoption?

We spend a lot of time explaining why you should switch over to a DevOps approach. But what does that really mean, logistically? Thanks to a recent survey from KMS Technology, we can see the actual cost and timeline needed for a successful DevOps adoption.

“You cannot buy DevOps in a box”

How do you measure a successful DevOps adoption? What kinds of metrics do you need to monitor, what benchmarks do you need to meet? We talked with JAX London speaker Anders Wallgren about continuous development, microservices, and how we can be better at DevOps.

Interview with Daniel Bryant

Containers offer great power but they also demand operational responsibility

Implementing a continuous delivery pipeline is not trivial, and the introduction of container technology to the development stack can introduce additional challenges and requirements. We talked to Daniel Bryant, CTO of SpectoLabs and speaker at the upcoming JAX London conference, about the challenges, tradeoffs, and impact of bringing together containers and CD.

Interview with Greg Davoll, Software Product Leader at Quest Software

“Open-source is not free, but it’s less expensive than most proprietary offerings”
