  • Reducing Environment Drift to 0 with Containers
    Reducing Environment Drift to 0 with Containers Leigh Capili, Infrastructure Engineer, Beatport Recorded: Jan 17 2018 39 mins
    We all know that differences between your development and production environments cause pain. In an ideal state, you’d have 0 drift between your environments. Luckily, modern tooling lets us model our production data centers on our personal machines, so we can iterate more quickly, experiment with failure modes, and deploy with confidence.

    In this talk, we’ll explore how we can use containers on developer laptops to mock out our production infrastructure. When you mock your infrastructure and make it easy to visualize and query what’s happening, you enable people to do wonderful things!

  • Zero to Kubernetes in the Cloud
    Zero to Kubernetes in the Cloud Scott Coulton, Sr. Software Engineer, Puppet Recorded: Jan 17 2018 44 mins
    Containers are no longer in the distant future; a lot of businesses are starting to, or are already using, containers in dev/test. In this talk, we will walk through the offerings Puppet has to help you leap from dev/test to a production-from-scratch environment in the cloud. We will run through deploying Puppet Enterprise in AWS with Puppet's ready-made CloudFormation templates that leverage Puppet's AWS AMI for Puppet Enterprise. Then we'll use codedeploy to pull the Puppet Kubernetes module, and deploy our production-ready cluster with our first application in a highly available configuration, using garethr/kubernetes.

    Not only will we run through the process — in theory, we will deploy the cluster live in real time. So you will not only have the tools to deploy a production-ready cluster, you will have had the experience of seeing it done in the real world.
  • The Changing Role of Operations
    The Changing Role of Operations Michael Stahnke, Director of Engineering, Puppet Recorded: Jan 17 2018 44 mins
    Today, ops is expected to build and design delivery pipelines, have continuous statistic collection as a part of their monitoring services, and complement the development process with continuous integration and delivery practices, all while still maintaining critical back-office applications that most wouldn’t wish upon their enemies. What separates the operations teams that lead from the ones who react, and how can you prepare for what’s next?

    In this talk, we’ll consider a reactive team mired in fire-fighting and incapable of making headway, then watch as change that betters the team’s output and perception throughout the organization is slowly introduced. With a focus on procedural and cultural improvements, we’ll cover root-cause analysis efforts, bringing pain forward, experimentation, shifting left on quality, and selling automation and DevOps practices to management.
  • How to Scale Enterprise DevOps in the Era of Docker & Application Containers
    How to Scale Enterprise DevOps in the Era of Docker & Application Containers Jay Lyman, 451 Research, & Scott Coulton, Puppet Recorded: Oct 25 2017 43 mins
    Application container software such as Docker and Kubernetes are among today's most disruptive trends in enterprise IT. While many are contemplating how containers may disrupt or even overtake DevOps in terms of hype or adoption, it's important to remember the reality that both containers and DevOps are part of the larger trend toward digital transformation.

    Containers are definitely having an impact on DevOps tenets of faster application releases and more efficient infrastructure management, but are just as likely to be a catalyst to scaling DevOps rather than competition.

    This webinar presented by 451 Research and Puppet will offer some perspective on what container software really means for the modern DevOps movement in the enterprise based on industry analysis and experience, survey data and customer case studies.
  • Modernizing Legacy Systems: Keeping up with DevOps, Containers & Microservices
    Modernizing Legacy Systems: Keeping up with DevOps, Containers & Microservices Padmashree Koneti, Sr. Director of Product Operations, Puppet Recorded: Sep 15 2017 43 mins
    Modernizing your legacy applications can be time-consuming and disruptive to the business, but for most organizations, adopting new technologies is no longer a question of “if” but “when.” As the industry shifts toward greater application mobility, modern automation tools and processes can ensure the reliability, security, and agility of your applications, while freeing your teams to focus on higher value work. Whether you're migrating to the cloud, adopting containers and DevOps practices, or just trying to improve your deployment process, configuration management and automation can help you build a bridge to the future.

    Join this webinar to learn:

    o How to take advantage of your technical investments (legacy) without completely overhauling the existing infrastructure.

    o How to gradually move to the cloud and maintain a mix of on-prem and cloud environments, all managed with the same tool.

    o How automation and configuration management tools make it faster and easier to adopt new technologies, so your team can focus on higher value work and spend less time on manual, routine tasks.

    o How to leverage and streamline breakthrough technologies to adopt a true hybrid cloud infrastructure

  • How to Build a DevOps Team that Really Makes a Difference
    How to Build a DevOps Team that Really Makes a Difference Panel Discussion Hosted by Computing Magazine Recorded: Jul 12 2017 50 mins
    The separation of the operations and development roles hinders communication, fosters resentment and undermines trust – all of which results in a slower software delivery across the business. This is why many organizations are now merging the roles, implementing DevOps in an attempt to free themselves of these shackles and speed up their software delivery cycles.

    DevOps has become the IT word of the moment in part because it just intuitively 'makes sense' to decision makers. After all, what's not to like about faster software delivery, higher quality, and a more cooperative work force?

    However, like many seemingly simple things, behind the scenes implementing DevOps can be anything but straightforward. Combining the two roles can cause serious disruption, and before embarking on DevOps just because everyone else is doing it, IT leaders need to keep a cool head, to take a step back and ask themselves "Why are we doing this? What's involved? Is it really for us?".

    Other questions will emerge when the decision to pursue DevOps has been taken: "How can we build a DevOps culture, emphasizing the win-win scenario when those involved fear change? What's the best place to start and how do I take people with me? What do I need to measure and what does success look like?"

    Later, decisions will need to be taken about the role of Agile, continuous delivery vs. continuous deployment, the extent of automation, traditional vs specialized toolsets, and the rest.

    DevOps is a significant development in the way that all types of companies operate - because companies in all sectors now develop their own software - but it is still new to most and so it is important to start the journey on the right path.

    Join our expert panelists for this on-demand web seminar during which we will be fielding your questions on how to build a DevOps team that will really make a difference to your company.
  • How DevOps Practices & Orchestration Help You Drive Change with Confidence
    How DevOps Practices & Orchestration Help You Drive Change with Confidence Lawrence Hecht, Principal, Lawrence Hecht Consulting & Carl Calum, Technical Marketing Manager, Puppet Recorded: Jul 6 2017 61 mins
    From agile and DevOps to the cloud and containers, it feels like we’ve reached a tipping point of change in IT. Don’t be fooled, because continual change is simply the new normal.

    To thrive, IT teams must be able to rapidly deliver and operate modern software. That’s why teams are turning to DevOps practices like continuous delivery, lean management and automation to keep pace — and arming themselves with tools that give them the ability to constantly innovate.

    View our webinar to learn why automation is the foundation of
    any DevOps initiative, and lets you drive change with confidence.
    We discuss how to:

    • Configure, deploy and update your infrastructure and applications faster, and more reliably.
    • Gain full control, visibility and context from your core infrastructure to the applications that run on top of it.
    • Automate the infrastructure you have today, and help you bridge to the technologies of tomorrow.
  • Security Implications for a DevOps Transformation
    Security Implications for a DevOps Transformation Alan Shimel, Editor-In-Chief, DevOps.com & Greg Sarjeant, Manager of Professional Services, Puppet Recorded: Jun 29 2017 63 mins
    If your organization is undergoing a DevOps transformation, you’re probably thinking about where security fits in. All too often, we tack on security testing at the end of the delivery process, which means significant problems go undetected until development is complete. As we adopt DevOps principles and practices, we enable a natural solution to this problem: ensure that security experts are involved throughout the delivery process.

    In this webinar, DevOps.com and Puppet will define a reference implementation of DevOps from the ground up, by illustrating how the software delivery process evolves at a hypothetical startup. Once we've laid a technical foundation for DevOps, we will discuss the implications for security. We will discuss:

    •Benefits for and challenges to security during a DevOps transformation
    •How to craft a DevOps-ready security practice
    •Refinements of a standard DevOps workflow to address security needs
