Alexandre Dumas’s classic portrayal of a young man seeking to join the elite guard of his day seems an unlikely source of inspiration for a blog post about digital performance management, but there’s something about groups of three — each balancing the others’ strengths and weaknesses ...
The evolution of JavaScript and HTML 5 to support a genuine component based framework (Web Components) with the necessary tools to deliver something close to a native experience including genuine realtime networking (UDP using WebRTC). HTML5 is evolving to offer built in templating sup...
I am an ops guy. I have been in Ops since I started my career a long time ago. I still remember the glorious days of being the new guy on the Ops team and getting stuck with changing backup tapes. I remember moving servers in the wee small hours of the morning, upgrades that went horri...
As we move into the world of complete datacenter automation, there is a whole new selection of issues that we are learning to resolve – from custom hardware to a variety of provisioning tools at each level of automation. These are not unexpected issues, but they certainly provide us wi...

What is the cloud? Does my data really sit on fluffy white clouds and float above the world? What happens when an airplane drives through my spreadsheet, or a bird gets stuck in my document? The scope of cloud technology and cloud computing is growing, as is its adoption. Your prosp...
The United States spends around 17-18% of its GDP on healthcare every year. Translated into dollars, it is a mind-boggling $2.9 trillion. Unfortunately, that spending will grow at a faster rate now due to baby boomers becoming an aging population, and they are the largest demographic i...
With live TV, there is no room for error. There’s no reset button. Any mistake can have a catastrophic effect on their brand. If during the World Series or the Super Bowl or a Presidential debate a system fails to handle the capacity or load – it would affect millions of people around ...
Early (very early, in fact) in the rise of SDN there were many discussions around scalability. Not of the data plane, but of the control (management) plane. Key to this discussion was the rate at which SDN-enabled network devices, via OpenFlow, could perform “inserts”. That is, how man...
DevOps bridges the gap between Development and Operations to accelerate software delivery and increase business agility and time-to-market. With its roots in the Agile movement, DevOps fosters collaboration between teams and streamlines processes, with the goal of breaking silos in ord...

DevOps is a far cry from the days of traditional software development. It is an amalgamated culture of attitudes, best practices and tools; a journey towards the Holy Grail of Continuous Delivery in which actions speak louder than words. To understand DevOps you have to live its value...
Remember when you were in school, learning math, and you learned about the importance of the order of operations? You do? Okay, good. Pop quiz: 1 + 1 * 8 = ? The answer is 9, not 16. Why? Because multiplication has precedence. If you want to get to 16 with those numbers, we’ll ne...
This week’s Top 10 is a little bit different...The latest episode of our Continuous Discussions (#c9d9) podcast focused on Microservices and Continuous Delivery. Panelists Usman Ismail, Daniel Rolnick, Darko Fabijan and our own Anders Wallgren discussed some of the best practices and t...
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, ‘unicorns’ are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps ‘done’, or is there still too ...
Agile software development is slowly but surely becoming the norm for a significant contingency of software developers. What used to be rigid, step-by-step processes that were siloed between specific teams have transformed into a collaborative, adaptive methodology that ultimately lead...
When major companies start getting into the nitty gritty of updating their software delivery processes, governance always pokes its head into the mix. The ability to control and secure a software release has traditionally been a hands-on experience due to its many complexities. But at ...
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, se...
This week saw DevOps news ranging from QA testing to microservices to metrics. Continue reading this week's top posts to see where the DevOps journey is heading, and what are some of the trends, tools and practices that are emerging to assure quality, speed and security of your release...
Imagine that you are designing the 2017 Ford Mustang. Like all gas-powered vehicles, each one needs an exhaust muffler. Ford has already vetted and narrowed in on a preferred provider of mufflers. But imagine what would happen if the designers and factory line workers could pick from a...
Just over a week ago I received a long and loud sustained applause for a presentation I delivered at this year’s Cloud Expo in Santa Clara. I was extremely pleased with the turnout and had some very good conversations with many of the attendees. Over the next few days I had many more m...

At first adopted by enterprises to consolidate physical servers, virtualization is now widely used in cloud computing to offer elasticity and scalability. On the other hand, Docker has developed a new way to handle Linux containers, inspired by version control software such as Git, whi...
On a recent road trip I was reminded about the importance of DevOps feedback loops and application supportability. I enjoy driving into the Australian outback. This probably explains why I prefer to take the back roads. On my last trip I did just that; forgoing the fast highway for a ...
A typical software testing team might have a business expert, a toolsmith, a few technical investigators, and perhaps a manager. A savvy manager knows one of the investigators is interested in mobile, another in APIs, and tries to ‘steer' the work toward the right person. This brings ...

DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we’ve seen a lot of focus on the “A” and even on the “M”, there are very few examples of why the “C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. In her session at @DevOps Summit, Lori Ma...
Let’s face it, embracing new storage technologies, capabilities and upgrading to new hardware often adds complexity and increases costs. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Seth Oxenhorn, Vice President of Business Development & Alliances at FalconStor, will discuss how a truly hetero...
If we look at slow, traditional IT and jump to the conclusion that just because we found its issues intractable before, that necessarily means we will again, then it’s time for a rethink. As a matter of fact, the world of IT has changed over the last ten years or so. We’ve been experi...
