Why You Should Go Serverless for DevOps

Over the last decade, DevOps has become an important part of software engineering culture, influenced by the wide adoption of microservices, containers and cloud computing. A recent step in the evolution of cloud-based and microservice architecture is the serverless computing – a code execution model where the cloud provider takes total responsibility for the operating system and hardware management.

How DevOps Benefits from Application Performance Monitoring (APM)

Competition is a funny thing. To gain or keep an edge against your competitors, you may need to push the envelope to use newer technologies and processes. But done wrong, that very technology or process could lead to your ruin. This is where we are with DevOps. The methodology that became popular in the mid-to-late 2000s is embraced by many companies . Done the right way, it will help your organization challenge its competition to keep up with customer and user demands.


How Soon We Forget: Security in the Age of Docker & Kubernetes

The last few years have seen an explosion of new technologies for running applications, and unprecedented collective lapses in applying security best practices. Forgetting all we learned over the past 40 years, we tell ourselves that running microservices in containers provides all the security we need. We convince ourselves that operating behind a firewall protects us from harm. We are sure it is okay that we terminate SSL at the load balancer. What could possibly go wrong?

CentOS 8: a clone that reinvents itself

It has taken much longer than usual for the CentOS team to provide us with a new version of their operating system; however, the wait is over. The new CentOS 8 is here. CentOS, or Community ENTerprise Operating System, is a binary-level clone of the RHEL (Red Hat Enterprise Linux) distribution that can be accessed for free. For those unfamiliar with Red Hat, Red Hat offers open source, enterprise-oriented software solutions with enterprise-level support.


Announcing: Epsagon, First Provider of Distributed Tracing for AWS AppSync

Today Epsagon is announcing the integration of its automated, distributed tracing solution for monitoring and troubleshooting cloud microservices (containers and serverless) with AWS AppSync, which simplifies application development by letting developers create a flexible API to securely access, manipulate, and combine data from one or more data sources.


Chaos Engineering for ITOps

Chaos engineering (CE) is the discipline of experimenting on a system in order to build confidence in the system’s capability to withstand turbulent conditions in production. This approach is becoming commonplace in software development and operations (DevOps) practices. But how would its application extend to ITOps? CE for ITOps offers a similar framework for stress-testing a technology platform to understand its weak points and performance pitfalls under heavy pressure.


A View of the Clouds

Not long ago, we talked about the need to maintain visibility across all of your multicloud investments so you can keep track of how well they are working for you as well as how much they are costing you. Historically, this has meant building reports on numbers of VMs in use, system utilization, storage consumption, and the like. But much has changed since the early days of hypervisors, and organizations creating cloud-based services today are moving quickly toward serverless models.
