Developing new features for our platform is one of the key ways we can make sure we are giving you the best service possible — and we wouldn’t be able to do it without your help. Let’s take a look at all the feature requests that we have received in the past few weeks!
Microservices are increasingly used in the development world as developers work to create larger, more complex applications that are better developed and managed as a combination of smaller services that work cohesively together for more extensive, application-wide functionality. Tools such as Service Fabric are rising to meet the need to think about and build apps using a piece-by-piece methodology that is, frankly, less mind-boggling than considering the whole of the application at once.
From server setup and hardware configuration to application deployment, traditional end-to-end IT infrastructure management has high overhead and takes a lot of time and effort. With the advent of cloud computing, IT infrastructure has evolved to address the availability, scalability, and agility problems organizations face. Yet the issue of inconsistent configurations remains, because the manual setup of cloud infrastructure can still lead to discrepancies.
If making dashboards or detectors is a great way to protect and understand your stack, imagine how amazing it would be if you didn’t have to make them and they just popped into existence, curated by experts in your organization. It’s like a cooking show where the host pulls a baked and iced cake from under the counter. Voila! This, friends, is one of the benefits of monitoring as code.
“Quality at Speed” is the new norm in software development. Enterprises are making their moves toward DevOps methodologies and Agile culture to accelerate the delivery speed and ensure product quality. In DevOps, a continuous and automated delivery cycle is the backbone that makes fast and reliable delivery possible. This results in the need for proper continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD) tools.
Ansible is a powerful configuration management tool for deploying software and administering remote systems that you can integrate into any existing architecture. It relies on industry-standard security mechanisms and takes full advantage of existing operating system utilities.
With the emergence of Amazon Web Services (AWS) in 2002, the Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) model kickstarted the public cloud revolution that has permanently changed how IT services are deployed and delivered. According to Gartner’s July 2019 Magic Quadrant for Cloud Infrastructure as a Service report, the annual cloud IaaS market is currently worth $41.4 billion and is expected to grow to $81.5 billion by 2022.
At TuneIn we’re always improving our Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery processes. Last year I worked on setting up TuneIn CI/CD using Docker and TeamCity (TC). This year we migrated to Bitrise.
