Production Deployments Don't Have to Be a High Wire Act By Dalibor Siroky It's 3 am in California, and you are still awake trying to sort through a release process that has been delayed by several hours. The deployment to the main application cluster took several extra hours due to an unanticipated problem with the servers, and now everyone is waiting on the lead database administrator to call into a conference bridge so you can all move on to Step 53.5b of the deployment. Your production deployments always seem to be problematic and this one might be the worst you've experienced yet. Everyone's Tired: Bad Decisions Abound By "everyone," I mean the 30 QA testers and 3 project managers in California, several developers in Sydney and India, and an operations team spread throughout the EU and the US. You can tell by some of the ambient noise on this conference call that... (more)

What’s in an Environment? How much do they cost?

When I talk to people about environment management I’m surprised by the number of people who don’t understand how much they cost.  In a large organization it isn’t immediately obvious just how much a particular environment costs.  It isn’t like people announce how much a VM costs every time someone spins one up to support a QA test.

Tailoring Release Management to Ops and Dev | @DevOpsSummit #APM #Agile #DevOps

Tailoring Release Management to Both Operations and Development Instead of adopting cookie-cutter solutions for release management based on static, flowchart-driven models, enterprises need purpose-built systems designed with a model that can be adapted to the needs of an individual enterprise that incorporate components from emerging DevOps-focused approaches to release management and more standard ITSM-focused approaches to IT Service Management. Your developers have their own dedicated tools and your operations team has its own dedicated IT service management tools. However, y... (more)

An Environment for Every Developer? | @CloudExpo #API #APM #Cloud #DevOps

If your organization has moved to a public or private cloud you’ve had the conversation about the scope of development environments. Should every developer get an environment in the cloud? Traditional test environment management has focused on QA and staging environments for the qualification of software for release. Your development velocity is a function of how quickly you can build and deliver software to QA environments. Your release quality is a function of how accurately your staging environments reproduce production. The new question is this: do development environments fa... (more)

Agile Release Management By @Plutora | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

Agile Release Management By Sean Hamawi So teams in your organisation have decided to embrace Agile development for some Projects and/or BAU development and things are going great guns, your deploying code changes and releases in prod every week. Over on the other side of the fence IT ops are screaming at the various portfolio dev teams for releasing highly risky functionality way too frequently but since the Agile dev adoption production has only had a couple of low priority P4 incidents caused by bad code releases. Things must be looking good with the new dev process but then ... (more)
