[slides] The Lifecycle of #Microservices | @CloudExpo #NoCode #LowCode – Thu, 27 Oct 2016
More and more companies are looking to microservices as an architectural pattern for breaking apart applications into more manageable pieces so that agile teams can deliver new features quicker and more effectively.
What this pattern has done more than anything to date is spark organizational transformations, setting the foundation for future application development. In practice, however, there are a number of considerations to make that go beyond simply “build, ship, and run,” which changes how developers and operators work together to streamline cohesive systems.

[session] Optimizing Ops | @DevOpsSummit @RedHatNews @GHaff #DevOps – Thu, 27 Oct 2016
operations aren’t merging to become one discipline. Nor is operations simply going away. Rather, DevOps is leading software development and operations – together with other practices such as security – to collaborate and coexist with less overhead and conflict than in the past.
In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 19th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, Red Hat Technology Evangelist, will discuss what modern operational practices look like in a world in which applications are more loosely coupled, are developed using DevOps approaches, and are deployed on software-defined, and often containerized, infrastructures – and where operations itself is increasingly another “as a service” capability from the perspective of developers.
[session] IoT Intelligence | @ThingsExpo @BsquareCorp #BigData #IoT #M2M – Thu, 27 Oct 2016
Ask someone to architect an Internet of Things (IoT) solution and you are guaranteed to see a reference to the cloud. This would lead you to believe that IoT requires the cloud to exist. However, there are many IoT use cases where the cloud is not feasible or desirable.
In his session at @ThingsExpo, Dave McCarthy, Director of Products at Bsquare Corporation, will discuss the strategies that exist to extend intelligence directly to IoT devices and sensors, freeing them from the constraints of the cloud. This enables companies to realize their business objectives by creating an architecture that is distributed, fast and cost-effective.
Clash of Ops | @DevOpsSummit #BigData #APM #DevOps #Docker #Monitoring – Thu, 27 Oct 2016
It was a Monday. I was reading the Internet. Okay, I was skimming feeds. Anyway, I happened across a title that intrigued me, “Stateful Apps and Containers: Squaring the Circle.” It had all the right buzzwords (containers) and mentioned state, a topic near and dear to this application networking-oriented gal, so I happily clicked on through.
Turns out that Stateful Apps are not Stateful Apps. Seriously.
[session] #FogComputing & #DigitalTransformation | @CloudExpo #IoT #BigData – Thu, 27 Oct 2016
The Internet of Things will challenge the status quo of how IT and development organizations operate. Or will it? Certainly the fog layer of IoT requires special insights about data ontology, security and transactional integrity. But the developmental challenges are the same: People, Process and Platform and how we integrate our thinking to solve complicated problems.
In his session at 19th Cloud Expo, Craig Sproule, CEO of Metavine, will demonstrate how to move beyond today’s coding paradigm and share the must-have mindsets for removing complexity from the development process, accelerate application delivery times, and ensure that developers will become heroes (not bottlenecks) in the IoT revolution.
[session] #DataCenter in the Cloud | @CloudExpo @Commvault #SDS #BigData – Wed, 26 Oct 2016
As data explodes in quantity, importance and from new sources, the need for managing and protecting data residing across physical, virtual, and cloud environments grow with it. Managing data includes protecting it, indexing and classifying it for true, long-term management, compliance and E-Discovery. Commvault can ensure this with a single pane of glass solution – whether in a private cloud, a Service Provider delivered public cloud or a hybrid cloud environment – across the heterogeneous enterprise.
You Need #DevOps | @DevOpsSummit @DMacVittie #CD #APM #Monitoring – Wed, 26 Oct 2016
For those unfamiliar, as a developer working in marketing for an infrastructure automation company, I have tried to clarify the different versions of DevOps by capitalizing the part that benefits in a given DevOps scenario. In this case we’re talking about operations improvements. While devs – particularly those involved in automation or DevOps will find it interesting, it really talks to growing issues Operations are finding.
The problem is right in front of us, we’re confronting it every day, and yet, a ton of us aren’t fixing it for our organizations, we’re merely kicking the ball down the road.
About #DevOps Collaboration | @DevOpsSummit #APM #CD #ContinuousDelivery – Wed, 26 Oct 2016

With the library of DevOps best practices, tips and guides expanding quickly, it can be difficult to track down the best and most accurate resources and information. In order to help the software development community, and to further our own learning, we reached out to leading industry analysts and asked them about an increasingly popular tenet of a DevOps transformation: collaboration.
[session] Regulatory Compliance | @CloudExpo #BigData #InfoSec #GDPR – Wed, 26 Oct 2016
Effectively SMBs and government programs must address compounded regulatory compliance requirements. The most recent are Controlled Unclassified Information and the EU’s GDPR have Board Level implications. Managing sensitive data protection will likely result in acquisition criteria, demonstration requests and new requirements. Developers, as part of the pre-planning process and the associated supply chain, could benefit from updating their code libraries and design by incorporating changes.
