The collection kicks off with a never before heard recording of "Sympathy for the Devil," by iconic rock band Jane's Addiction.

"When Jane's Addiction said they were into the idea of doing Sympathy for the Devil for the show, we were completely blown away.  This was made all the more sweet because theirs was the first and only door we knocked on. Jane's Addiction is one of the few post 60's/70's, iconic bands that resonates with our show's mythology.  They have typified rebellion from their very beginnings. It seemed a natural fit between a band and a song with so many layers of meaning to the Sons of Anarchy narrative. I can proudly say that the end product speaks for itself. Working with them, as a band and as individuals, was an incredibly satisfying experience."- Bob Thiele (SOA music composer).

Jane's Addiction guitarist Dave Navarro will also guest star in the last two episodes of the season, as a member of the Byz Lats gang with close ties to Nero (Jimmy Smits).

Golden Globe® Award winning actress/singer Katey Sagal returns with a beautiful rendition of "To Sir with Love," a collaboration track with The Forest Rangers. Other notable tracks include "The Lost Boy," "No Milk Today," and the stunning recording of "Time" which features Battleme & The Forest Rangers.

The Forest Rangers serve as the Sons Of Anarchy house band, which includes the show's music composer Bob Thiele, Greg Leisz (guitar/banjo), John Philip Shenale (keyboards), Lyle Workman (guitar), Dave Way (recording Engineer and Sergeant at Arms), Davey Faragher (bass), Brian Macleod (drums) and Velvet Revolver guitarist Dave Kushner.

Sons of Anarchy was created by Kurt Sutter who also serves as Executive Producer along with John Linson, Art Linson and Paris Barclay. The series is produced by FX Productions and Fox 21. Starring Charlie Hunnam, Ron Perlman and Katey Sagal, Sons of Anarchy is having its best season yet from a ratings standpoint. Currently in season five, the series is delivering an average of 6.45 million Total Viewers and 4.42 million Adults 18-49, respective gains of +16% and +17%. On a weekly multi-telecast basis, Sons is delivering 9.46 million Total Viewers and 6.37 million in Adults 18-49.

Thomas Bitman of Gartner wrote a blog post last year about why OpenStack projects fail. In that article, he outlined three particular metrics which together cause 60% of OpenStack projects to fall short of expectations: Wrong people (31% of failures): a successful cloud needs commitment both from the operations team as well as from "anchor" tenants. Wrong processes (19% of failures): a successful cloud automates across silos in the software development lifecycle, not just within silos.
As the world moves toward more DevOps and Microservices, application deployment to the cloud ought to become a lot simpler.

Serverless computing is revolutionizing computing. In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Raghav...

This is a no-hype, pragmatic post about why I think you should consider architecting your next project the way SOA and/or microservices suggest. No matter if it’s a greenfield approach or if you’re in dire need of refactoring. Please note: considering still keeps open the option of not taking that approach. After reading this, you will have a better idea about whether building multiple small components instead of a single, large component makes sense for your project. This post assumes that you...
Monitoring of Docker environments is challenging. Why? Because each container typically runs a single process, has its own environment, utilizes virtual networks, or has various methods of managing storage. Traditional monitoring solutions take metrics from each server and applications they run. These servers and applications running on them are typically very static, with very long uptimes. Docker deployments are different: a set of containers may run many applications, all sharing the resource...
With so much going on in this space you could be forgiven for thinking you were always working with yesterday’s technologies. So much change, so quickly.

This is the challenge we faced when we looked to refresh our existing 10-year-old custom hardware stack to measure the fullness of trash cans and compactors.

Sematext has historically had a strong support for monitoring big data applications such as Elastic (aka Elasticsearch), Cassandra, Solr, S...
There's a lot of things we do to improve the performance of web and mobile applications. We use caching. We use compression. We offload security (SSL and TLS) to a proxy with greater compute capacity. We apply image optimization and minification to content. We do all that because performance is king. Failure to perform can be, for many businesses, equivalent to an outage with increased abandonment rates and angry customers taking to the Internet to express their extreme displeasure.

Before becoming a developer, I was in the high school band. I played several brass instruments - including French horn and cornet - as well as keyboards in the jazz stage band. A musician and a nerd, what can I say? I even dabbled in writing music for the band. Okay, mostly I wrote arrangements of pop music, so the band could keep the crowd entertained during Friday night football games. What struck me then was that, to write parts for all the instruments - brass, woodwind, percussion, even k...
Right off the bat, Newman advises that we should "think of microservices as a specific approach for SOA in the same way that XP or Scrum are specific approaches for Agile Software development". These analogies are very interesting because my expectation was that microservices is a pattern. So I might infer that microservices is a set of process techniques as opposed to an architectural approach. Yet in the book, Newman clearly includes some elements of concept model and architecture as well as p...

Let's just nip the conflation of these terms in the bud, shall we?

"MIcro" is big these days. Both microservices and microsegmentation are having and will continue to have an impact on data center architecture, but not necessarily for the same reasons. There's a growing trend in which folks - particularly those with a network background - conflate the two and use them to mean the same thing.

They are not.

One is about the application. The other, the network. T...
