Creating seamless digital experiences for customers can require hundreds of systems and services to work together. Not only do you have to worry about your own internal systems, but now in the world of APIs and microservices you also have to worry about how these external systems are going to work with yours.
Testing dependencies on 3rd party services presents unique challenges. Many 3rd parties charge access fees for test interfaces and the availability and performance of the interfaces may not be the same as the production versions.
Learn how service virtualization can be used to:
•Virtualize 3rd party services so they are accessible all the time without fees
•Replicate production like dependencies for testing
•Reproduce production defects for faster remediation
•Eliminate scheduling conflicts and enable parallel development
•Generate virtualized data
Working in QA and testing has never been more challenging. Development is turning out new code faster than ever, and test backlogs just keep piling up. Errors that make it into production then need to be traced and fixed, adding to the backlog.
Discover how test automation, service virtualization, and test data management can help you make your testing more agile—and permanently eliminate the excuses.
You will learn how to avoid these common excuses with the following skills:
•The dog ate my data: Simplify test data management and increase test coverage
•That application was before my time: Automate tests for poorly documented systems
•Nobody told me that: Improve test case requirements with visualization
•I didn’t have time to test that: Accelerate testing with test automation and open source code
•It worked fine on my machine: Use service virtualization to create production-like test environments in minutes
Chef Compliance lets you express your compliance rules as code. You can easily run those rules as tests whenever you want. You get immediate feedback on whether your servers are configured as they should be.
Chef Compliance scans your servers to see if they are configured in accordance with your rules and generates a report that identifies the issues it found. You can then use Chef to remediate those problems.
In this webinar, Joe Gardiner will demonstrate how Chef Compliance works by scanning a default installation of RHEL 7.0 on the public cloud to see if it is CIS compliant. After the scan identifies the problem areas, Joe will use Chef to bring the server in line with the CIS benchmarks.
You’ll also learn about an offer from Chef to help you perform a scan of your infrastructure and get you started on the road to compliance.

Imagine if Google or Amazon went a year or two without updating their cloud or adding new features. OpenStack private clouds must interoperate and compete with public clouds at an economic and technological capabilities level. That means updating to the latest version of OpenStack as smoothly and quickly as possible. Fortunately, Ubuntu OpenStack is designed with exactly that in mind.
In this “don’t wait!” update, we review the key new features in OpenStack Mitaka. We’ll discuss why they’re important and what they do for your OpenStack cloud; updates like Live Migration, rolling upgrades, and Neutron role-based QoS, to name a few. We also talk about some of the tools that have helped make Ubuntu the platform for the vast majority of OpenStack installations.
- The latest OpenStack has the stability improvements of all previous versions, there’s no need to wait to upgrade
- OpenStack Mitaka has scalability, resiliency and manageability improvements throughout all the core projects
- Ubuntu OpenStack and Canonical’s tools reduce time to initial deployment
- Upgrading to OpenStack Mitaka is a standardized process if you’re using MaaS and Juju
- Core features of Ubuntu have been updated or added to better support OpenStack Mitaka clouds, like LXD and ZFS
Come hear Mark Baker, Canonical’s OpenStack product and strategy lead, explain what’s new in OpenStack Mitaka, why those features are important, and how Canonical is delivering tools to make them easy to consume, and easily upgradeable. A commissioned study conducted by Forrester Consulting on behalf of Canonical found that ease of expansion and upgradeability is the most important must-have for a cloud platform. Ubuntu OpenStack ensures you never get left behind the cloud curve.
John Meadows, VP of Business Development for Talligent and Arturo Suarez, Product Strategy for Canonical
Do you have or want to have a modern, agile, perhaps self-service, cloud infrastructure?
Are you struggling with or considering how many disparate workloads are deployed?
How will you gain useful insight into who's using which resources, and how do you appropriately charge users, departments, the customers of IT, for the resources they consume?
Even in a flat or no charge back model, the ability to analyse and, more importantly, predict consumption, is vital to managing and growing any sort of modern IT infrastructure.
With the rapid implementation and usage growth of modern clouds, it is vital that proper environmental analytics are gathered. Join Canonical and Talligent to learn how to measure and analyse business-critical consumption and cost data from a single to multi or hybrid cloud infrastructure. We'll discuss cloud computing in the context of BootStack, a managed OpenStack offering based on Ubuntu. Talligent's OpenBook software demonstrates how and why to perform cloud measurement, billing and potentially charge back.
John Meadows, VP of Business Development for Talligent, has an engineering background. He has worked on cost model development for software, provided direct input on virtualisation management systems for both software and hardware, and understands the importance of the intersection of operations, consulting, competitive analysis, and market alignment.
