Deploying Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS in distributed environments with MAAS

Mark Baker Product Manager for Server & Cloud at Canonical
Many people use Ubuntu Server in scale-out environments for web infrastructure, cloud or big data applications. The sheer scale of these deployments - at companies like Netflix, Mercado Libre and Instagram - has many people now referring to ‘hyperscale computing’. Ubuntu Server 12.04 LTS contains new technologies to help the rapid deployment and management of web services in distributed environments, so you can scale your infrastructure without scaling cost. Join Matthew Revell and Mark Baker from the Ubuntu Server team to learn about these new technologies and how they can help you benefit from the same infrastructure as the world’s leading web scale companies.

  • The ROI numbers don’t lie. Service virtualization technology is critical to the success of a vibrant application economy. That’s the conclusion from voke, Inc. on their research of 500 companies across the globe. Organizations using service virtualization experience reduced defects and software lifecycles, and increased customer satisfaction.

    Specific ROI data from companies surveyed include:
    •46% reported a 41% or greater reduction in TOTAL defects
    •More than one-third reduced test cycle times by 50% or more
    •36% reported a 41% or greater reduction in production defects
    •More than 25% at least doubled test execution rates

    Hear service virtualization should be a cornerstone of testing automation to remove the barrier to releasing software faster and with greater quality.

    voke, Inc., will review the research showing how service virtualization is an essential technology with a strong and proven ROI used to deliver software that drives optimal business outcomes and removes constraints throughout the software delivery lifecycle.
  • The answer is YES! The ‘I’ in team doesn’t represent one single person in the apps development plan, rather it highlights the transformation of the once silo’d teams who support specific functions within the app lifecycle. The straight line of the ‘I’ symbolizes the one team approach that is making DevOps successful. Operations people are showing up in the testing phase of the application and the apps people are doing some measures and monitoring in operations. Recently, TechTarget named DevOps as one of six major data center trends for 2015. DevOps is no longer a new way to think about transformation; it is the ONLY way to bring together the silos that weigh down your business’ bottom line.

    Join our lively panel discussion with DevOps industry experts Paul Muller and Damon Edwards as they discuss:

    Common problems in traditional DevOps teams
    How these teams have changed to truly transform and become innovators
    How you can apply these ideas to your business to boost your bottom line
