'Containers and Microservices Expo' Faculty Announced
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Containers are not new, but renewed commitments to performance, flexibility, and agility have propelled them to the top of the agenda today. By working without the need for virtualization and its overhead, containers are seen as the perfect way to deploy apps and services across multiple clouds.
Containers can handle anything from file types to operating systems and services, including microservices. What are microservices? Unlike what the name implies, microservices are not necessarily small, but are focused on specific tasks. The ability for developers to deploy multiple containers - thousands if they need to - each with a focused "containerized application" or microservice in it, brings new levels of speed, agility, flexibility, and resiliency to the world of cloud computing.
The "Second Containers & Microservices Expo" at Cloud Expo to be held November 3-5, 2015, at Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, will expand the community and enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike.
Join Cloud Expo Conference Chair Roger Strukhoff on November 3-5 for three days of intense discussion and focus on containers and microservices.
Breaking down IT Silo's with Unified Analytics
Overgrown applications have given way to modular applications, driven by the need to break larger problems into smaller problems. Similarly large monolithic development processes, have been forced to be broken into smaller agile development cycles. Looking at trends in software development, microservices architectures meet the same demands.
A DevOps State of Mind
Rapid innovation, changing business landscapes, and new IT demands force businesses to make changes quickly. The DevOps approach is a way to increase business agility through collaboration, communication, and integration across different teams in the IT organization.
Breaking down IT Silo's with Unified Analytics
IT data is typically silo'd by the various tools in place. Unifying all the log, metric and event data in one analytics platform stops finger pointing and provides the end-to-end correlation. Logs, metrics and custom event data can be joined to tell the holistic story of your software and operations. For example, users can correlate code deploys to system performance to application error codes. This can only work if the underlying analytics platform is flexible and powerful enough to handle the various workflows of the organization. Come here how we've solved this.
Containers: New Ways to Deploy and Manage Applications at Scale
The last decade was about virtual machines, but the next one is about containers. Containers enable a service to run on any host at any time. Traditional tools are starting to show cracks because they were not designed for this level of application portability. Now is the time to look at new ways to deploy and manage applications at scale.
Manufacturing Plus Open Source Equals DevOps
Manufacturing has widely adopted standardized and automated processes to create designs, build them, and maintain them through their life cycle. However, many modern manufacturing systems go beyond mechanized workflows to introduce empowered workers, flexible collaboration, and rapid iteration.
Five Security Practices That Can Hinder Your Business
How do you securely enable access to your applications in AWS without exposing any attack surfaces? The answer is usually very complicated because application environments morph over time in response to growing requirements from your employee base, your partners and your customers. In this session, we will share five common approaches that DevOps teams follow to secure access to applications deployed in AWS, Azure, etc., and the friction and risks they impose on the business.
Go All the Way with Agile: From Agile to DevOps to Continuous Delivery - How to Evolve Your Software Delivery
Agile, which started in the development organization, has gradually expanded into other areas downstream - namely IT and Operations. Teams - then teams of teams - have streamlined processes, improved feedback loops and driven a much faster pace into IT departments which have had profound effects on the entire organization.
OpenShift - World Class PaaS That Enables DevOps
With containerization using Docker, Orchestration of containers using Kubernetes, self service model for provisioning of your projects and applications and the workflows we built-in OpenShift is the best in class Platform as a Service that enables introducing DevOps into your organization with ease. This session will provide a deepdive overview of OpenShift v3 and demos how it helps with DevOps.
The Dark Art of Container Monitoring
Containers are revolutionizing the way we deploy and maintain our infrastructures, but monitoring and troubleshooting in a containerized environment can still be painful and impractical. Understanding even basic resource usage is difficult - let alone tracking network connections or malicious activity. This talk will cover the current state of the art for container monitoring and visibility, including pros / cons and live demonstrations of each method. Special emphasis will be put on sysdig, an open source troubleshooting tool. Sysdig offers unprecedented container visibility without the need to break the "sanctity" of the container.
Security Maps For the Container New World
Containers are changing the security landscape for software development and deployment. As with any security solutions, security approaches that work for developers, operations personnel and security professionals is a requirement. We will discuss various security considerations for container based infrastructure and related DevOps workflows
Three Containers Walked Into the Cloud... The Past, Present and Future of Container Deployment
Unbeknownst to some, organizations have run infrastructure containers in production for years, reaping benefits on the operational end but not yet providing value for developers. When Docker catapulted containers into mainstream adoption, another type of container emerged - one that's enormously popular for developers, but not quite ready for Ops. It's time to close the gap between the promise that Devs see in containers and the operational challenges of actually running them in production. In this session, Joyent CTO Bryan Cantrill will demonstrate a third path: containers on multi-tenant bare metal that maximizes performance, security, and networking connectivity.
Zero to Petabytes of Processing in One Year
In this session, we will explore the entire process that we have undergone -- through research, benchmarking, implementation, optimization, and customer success -- in developing a processing engine that can handle petabytes of data. We will also discuss the requirements of such an engine in terms of scalability, resilience, security, and availability along with how the architecture accomplishes these requirements. Lastly, we will review the gory details of the technologies we have chosen, which are based mostly on open-source platforms including Kafka, Elasticsearch, and Docker as well as other proprietary technologies.
Are Microservices 'SOA Done Right'?
Join SOA thought leader and Microservices Expo editor Jason Bloomberg for an insightful look into the nature of microservices architecture. For it to be SOA -- let alone SOA done right -- we need to pin down just what "SOA done wrong" might be. First-generation SOA with Web Services and ESBs, perhaps?
Optimize DevOps with a Single Codebase for Web and Mobile Applications
DevOps is about increasing efficiency, but nothing is more inefficient than building the same application twice. However, this is a routine occurrence with enterprise applications that need both a rich desktop web interface and strong mobile support. With recent technological advances from Isomorphic Software and others, rich desktop and tuned mobile experiences can now be created with a single codebase - without compromising functionality, performance or usability. In his session at DevOps Summit, Charles Kendrick, CTO and Chief Architect at Isomorphic Software, will demonstrate examples of complex UI widgets that behave differently in desktop vs. mobile context, and describe the API and code structures that enable these capabilities.
A Tale of Two Protocols: Why the "C" in CAMS is Critical to DevOps
DevOps has often been described in terms of CAMS: Culture, Automation, Measuring, Sharing. While we've seen a lot of focus on the "A" and even on the "M", there are very few examples of why the "C" is equally important in the DevOps equation. This session will explore HTTP/1 and HTTP/2 along with Microservices to illustrate why a collaborative culture between Dev, Ops, and the Network is critical to ensuring success.
The Microservices architectural pattern promises increased DevOps agility and can help enable continuous delivery of software. This session is for developers who are transforming existing applications to cloud-native applications, or creating new Microservices style applications.
FFrom Ops to DevOps and Beyond: How to Create A Successful NoOps Team
Any Ops team trying to support a company in today's cloud-connected world knows that a new way of thinking is required-one just as dramatic than the shift from Ops to DevOps. The diversity of modern operations requires teams to focus their impact on breadth vs. depth. This session will discuss the strategic requirements of evolving from Ops to DevOps, and why modern Operations has begun leveraging the "NoOps" approach. NoOps enables developers to deploy, manage, and scale their own code, creating an infrastructure that minimizes bottlenecks in key processes. Participants will understand key concepts and lessons in building a NoOps strategy, the tools and techniques required in the NoOps department, and the five types of people needed (and the five you don't want) to create a successful NoOps team.
Reboot Your Leadership for DevOps Success: Why Culture Trumps Tech in the DevOps Stakes
Culture is the most important ingredient of DevOps. The challenge for most organizations is defining and communicating a vision of beneficial DevOps culture for their organizations, and then facilitating the changes needed to achieve that. Often this comes down to an ability to provide true leadership. As a CIO, are your direct reports IT Managers or are they IT Leaders? The hard truth is that many IT Managers have risen through the ranks based on their technical skills, not their leadership ability. Many are unable to effectively engage and inspire, creating forward momentum in the direction of desired change. Renowned for its approach to leadership and emphasis on their people, organizations increasingly look to our military for insight into these challenges.

DevOps Continuous Testing and LaaS - The Perfect Match for SDN
Without continuous testing there is no continuous delivery. Everyone in DevOps talks about continuous integration and continuous delivery but those are just two ends of the DevOps pipeline. In the middle of DevOps is continuous testing (CT), and many organizations are struggling to implement continuous testing effectively. Lab-As-A- Service (LaaS) enhances CT with dynamic on-demand self-serve test topologies. CT together with LAAS make a powerful combination that perfectly serves complex software development and delivery pipelines. Software Defined Networks (SDNs) turn the network into a flexible configurable system of software components and connections which is powerful but presents new complexities and challenges for network software development, delivery and deployments. This talk explains how DevOps best practices for continuous testing when combined with LaaS are make an excellent combination to accelerate SDN realization and operations. The talk describes people, process and products required for SDN continuous testing andonline self-service continuous lab and testing services.

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.
Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
