CERN Scales their Complex Software Ecosystem with Automation

Benedikt Hegner, Scientist with CERN’s development team
European webinar- 10 AM BST / 11 AM CEST (this is the corrected time)
No one said that finding out what the universe is made of and how it works would be easy. But at CERN, the European Organization for Nuclear Research, thousands of scientists are trying to do just that every day.

The development team at CERN has created many applications including the ROOT platform, a big data analysis for its High Energy Physics computing. These applications are used by more than 20,000 users to create cutting edge scientific software. Understanding that the quality of their application is critical for its large customer base, CERN adopted Agile practices like Continuous Integration (CI) and testing.

Please join this European webinar to hear how CERN implemented Electric Cloud’s scalable automation solution to build and test their complex software applications to improve their code quality and increase their release frequency.

Join this webinar to learn:
•How CERN validates their code quality when creating applications designed to identify the existence of sub-atomic particles
•Why buildbot couldn’t scale to CERN’s needs
•What benefits more than 20,000 users enjoy from CERN implementing Electric Cloud’s ElectricCommander solution

  • Automation is a powerful tool. It strips time and cost out of processes, minimizes errors, and frees up skilled staff to focus on higher value activities. Most IT teams have already capitalized in some part on automation, and most IT professionals can see the potential in extending automation across the enterprise. But how do you embed automation in the company IT DNA? Where do you start in the journey from script automation towards enterprise-wide process automation?

    In this session you will learn how you can scale automation to an enterprise-level through the adoption of a Center of Excellence. Our proven approach creates a cohesive framework for automation and breaks through silos, so your organization benefits from economies of scale and the advantages that automation brings.

  • The IT industry is currently undergoing one of the most radical disruptions in its history, as traditional data centers are being replaced with cloud computing environments. New workloads such as mobile computing, social networking, and big data analytics are driving the need for a more dynamic, agile approach to enterprise computing. It is most prevalent in the networks within and between modern data centers.

    This presentation will discuss a new approach to application-aware data networking based on open industry standards (the Open Datacenter Interoperable Network, ODIN). In particular, we focus on recent approaches to SDN and NFV which deliver real value in next generation data networks. We will also discuss case studies which demonstrate the value of emerging cloud based, software defined environments.

  • From Commit to Consumer - Three Must Haves for Speedy Delivery Apr 22 2014 5:00 pm UTC 60 mins
    1) Accelerated, error-free builds
    Agile development creates more frequent builds. A CD platform that optimizes and parallelizes large builds across hundreds, or even thousands of cores is good. A solution that automatically detects dependencies to eliminate broken builds is even better.
    2) Faster feedback
    You shouldn’t have to wait until builds or tests are 100% complete before receiving feedback. A CD platform that allows real-time drill-down into warnings and errors as they occur give helps eliminate wasted time and CPU cycles.
    3) Bulletproof and painless processes
    CD isn’t continuous if jobs in flight are lost when a CI server goes own; or when it takes days for QA machines to be provisioned; or when deployments fail because of differences between QA and production. A CD platform should automate and normalize the build, test and deploy process across ANY environment (public, private or hybrid) with 1-click simplicity.

  • 3 Steps to Automate Your Way to Agile Recorded: Apr 16 2013 62 mins
    We all know that Agile enables software organizations to continuously deliver working software faster to customers (internal or external). This helps software teams to not only deliver products faster but also in tune with the changing market needs. In practice however, organizations still struggle to get the full benefits of Agile methodology because they have not fully automated their practices (development, build, test, release).

    Join us to hear Christopher Rommel, VP of M2M and Embedded Technology at VDC, address the fundamental issues and recommendations you should consider as you adopt Agile:
    1. Drivers for adopting Agile
    2. Critical organizational, process and tooling issues to consider and pitfalls to avoid
    3. Recommendations on how to do this right by automating your processes
