07 May 2017 Miami Next Gen IT: Flexibility AND Standardization with Automation Frameworks and DevOps [63171]
Thursday, May 18th, 2017: 6:00 PM to 8:00 PM

Venture Cafe - Miami

Evolve your thinking - Flexibility AND Standardization with Automation Frameworks and DevOps with Michael Stahnke, Director of Engineering, Puppet - When the primary technologies you're building upon and deploying are changing at a breakneck pace, the primitives of understanding and managing those technologies need to evolve as well. This is why DevOps practices, and automation frameworks, that emphasize cycle time, iterations, and common abstraction have become so valuable. Whether you're deploying a war file to a J2EE application server, or thousands of containers to kubernetes, the actions you need to take are similar.

You have testing, deployment, infrastructure creation, management, compliance, security and event management. In this discussion, I'll cover keeping up with changing technologies by applying conceptual abstractions that map across generations of technology tooling. I'll also provide concrete examples of how using devops methodologies allows your organization to get more done, all backed by data.

There are many reasons for wanting to calculate and report PUE for a given facility, but in the long run the best is one of simple economics: the better you operate your infrastructure from an energy efficiency point of view, the more you save on energy costs..."

"Whether dealing with a third parties access or tracking an insider through your network, action needs to be take to see who goes where ...

It is easy to overlook identity access management as static infrastructure in the background, and that's the chief problem: Too few organizations treat IAM as the crucial, secure connective tissue between businesses' multiplying employees, contractors, apps, business partners and service providers.

SearchStorage, May 5th 2017

"Trends, such as event-triggered computing, as exemplified by Lambda Architectures, converge on data center storage to hasten data center intelligence evolution...

Infrastructure is getting smarter by the day. It's reached the point where I'm afraid artificially intelligent IT will soon turn the tables and start telling me how to manage my own personal 'lifecycle.' Well, I would be afraid if I believed all those AI vendors suddenly claiming they offer AI-powered infrastructure..."
