Physical and technological changes in computing and data storage have led us down a winding road to DevOps, which brings us to where we are today. Let’s take a brief look at the evolution of cloud hosting, from colocation to today’s cloud services, and the impact of these changes on IT decision-making.
Join this webcast with Sin-Mei Tsai, VP of Engineering along with Gavin Butler, Lead Site Reliability Engineer at Shippo, for a technical deep-dive into cloud applications and operations of yesterday, today and tomorrow.
The growing popularity of object-based storage has resulted in the development of Ethernet-connected storage devices, herein referred to as IP-Based Drives and subsystems supporting object interfaces and in some cases the ability to run localized applications.
Typical scale-out storage nodes consist of relatively inexpensive enclosures with IP network connectivity, CPU, Memory and Direct Attached Storage (DAS). While inexpensive to deploy, these solutions become harder to manage over time.
To ease management of these drives, SNIA has approved the release of the IP-Based Drive Management Specification. In this webcast, you’ll hear from authors of the specification who’ll discuss:
• Major Components of the IP Based Drive Management Standard
• How the standard leverages the DMTF Redfish management standard to manage Kinetic and other IP-Based Drives
• Providing a standard management interface for drives that are part of JBOD or JBOF enclosures
This standard allows drive management to scale to datacenters and beyond, enabling automation and Software Defined Datacenters. Join this webcast on April 20th to learn more.
By driving containerized microservices into production, architecture and project teams are learning how to decompose monoliths, rapidly compose business solutions, and achieve greater resiliency. The transition requires teams to reinvent their application, reshape their architecture, and refresh their technology platform.
In this session, Chris Haddad, Chief Architect at Karux, will share how enterprise architecture teams chose their container platform, refactored their application portfolio, and accelerated development with API-first practices. Learn how you can establish a roadmap, craft an implementation plan, and acquire necessary skills.
When it comes to mobile applications for enterprise, mobile developers are required to deliver cross-platform mobile apps with powerful backends, insightful user analytics and engaging notifications, all while keeping development costs to a minimum. In this session, find out how to mobilize and modernize your apps fast with Telerik Platform and learn more on NativeScript, a powerful open-source cross-platform framework for building native apps.
Application containers are changing the way software is built and deployed. Managing and scaling application containers pose different challenges from that of traditional infrastructures. In this webcast we look at Kubernetes, an open source container cluster manager and how it simplifies automation, operations and scaling of containers.
Revisions to PCI (Payment Card Industry) DSS (Data Security Standard) point toward the realization that security must be built into the development process and Cloud with SAAS computing.
Medical software and hardware, mobile applications, IoT etc. will require a new approach. This is frequently referred to as Rugged DevOps or SecDevOps, and the different approach called DevSecOps, embracing the speed of DevOps and continuous delivery in a secure environment. DevOps does affect security, and you can use it to your advantage. As cloud, big data and DevOps disrupt traditional approaches to security, new capabilities emerge to automate and enhance security operations.
Join this session and learn how to automatically address these data security blind spots and how security can be built into the development process and IT platforms. We will discuss how security can be built into Rugged DevOps,SecDevOps, DevSecOps, Scrum, SAFe, DAD and use in Large-scale Development.
Docker is an open source, lightweight, virtualized environment for portable applications. With all the buzz it has attracted, it can be hard to figure out exactly what Docker is and what it can do for you. This session will brief you the fundamentals of Docker, why it’s making waves and how it might be a useful addition to your platform. You will walk away with a full understanding of dockers and containers, how to create your own docker images and how docker can be used for development, testing and production.
Does your organization want to implement application portfolio management? Are you trying to determine the value in implementing APM? Are you struggling to know what tool you should use and what data is important to collect?
This session will review specific use cases of companies that have implemented APM and effectively used the data to drive value for the organization. This session will also review some of the APM tools in the market, including ServiceNow and CA PPM.
How do you achieve hyper growth in the mobile space and compete with large incumbents as a new start up with limited resources?
Join this session where Edward Cooper, Head of Mobile at cutting edge mobile-first FinTech company Revolut, will take questions from the audience and discuss the following:
- What techniques can you use, given limited budget and resources, to compete with large established players.
- Is traditional marketing effective? If not, what has changed?
- What other steps can you take to get your app / idea to spread.
- Paid mobile analytics companies, useful, or fools gold?
- PR companies, yes or no?
