Getting the most out of Kubernetes management across Amazon EKS and your on-premises environment

Published By: AWS     Published Date: Oct 14, 2019
Containers have become the new infrastructure standard for development teams. While the “DIY container approach” (un-orchestrated containers) still has its use cases (e.g. low latency, longer compute jobs, predictable traffic), production-grade deployments require orchestration. DevOps teams are increasingly leveraging the benefits of Kubernetes and accelerating its adoption, taking it from a 27% adoption rate in 2018 to a 48% adoption rate in 2019 according to the RightScale “2019 State of the Cloud Report,” from Flexera. The same report also positions Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) as one of the fastest-growing managed Kubernetes offerings available, with a 44% adoption rate. Previously, containers were a technology deployed by individual teams – and were typically used for “application testing” in the enterprise world. Today, many organizations are now not only seeing the benefits of operationalizing containers to deploy production applications, but also re-positioni

Principled Technologies - Unity 880 XT Compete

Published By: Dell EMC Storage     Published Date: Aug 15, 2019
Businesses of all sizes struggle with aging gear and lack of storage. In fact, in a 2018 Enterprise Storage Forum survey, IT and business leaders cited these concerns as their two biggest storage infrastructure challenges. But in mid- to enterprise-sized businesses, where every dollar counts, fixing these problems can feel like a tall order. If you’re going to upgrade your storage, you need to make sure you’re getting an efficient array that will help you maximize the value of your storage and your data. We tested two storage arrays to see which could best help organizations meet these goals: the Dell EMC™ Unity™ XT 880F, and an all-flash offering in the entry-level market from a competitor (“Vendor A”). In our hands-on testing, the Dell EMC Unity XT array processed up to 93 percent more input/output operations per second (IOPS) in an 8KB 100% random read test and reduced 129 percent more data. It also carried out common management tasks faster, cutting the number of deployment steps i

The Rise of Tier 2 Testing

Published By: Butler Technologies     Published Date: Jul 03, 2018
Industry standards have been established to ensure performance, consistency, and interoperability between network equipment vendors. However, the consistent implementation and operation of these standards become even more critical as speeds and bandwidth increase. At the fiber infrastructure level, this also means more testing may be needed beyond the basic fiber end-face inspection certification and Tier 1 testing. This white paper explores Tier 2 optical time domain reflectometer (OTDR) testing and examines its relationship to Tier 1 testing and how inspection plays into both. This paper defines Tier 2 testing and explains when it is needed. It also addresses the OTDR complexity argument.

A Simple Guide to Penetration Testing

Published By: SecureAuth     Published Date: Nov 13, 2017
A penetration test, or pen-test, is an attempt to evaluate the security of an IT infrastructure by safely trying to exploit vulnerabilities. These vulnerabilities may exist in operating systems, services and application flaws, improper configurations or risky end-user behavior. Such assessments are also useful in validating the efficacy of defensive mechanisms, as well as, end-user adherence to security policies. This eBook provides a simple guide to explain both penetration testing's purpose and a basic guide to getting you there. Download now and start testing your network today.

Teaching an Elephant to Dance: Intentional evolution across teams, processes, and applications

Published By: Red Hat     Published Date: Jan 02, 2018
Once upon a time, several generations ago (in technology years), IT departments were internal departments, focused on maintaining infrastructure and services within the company. Some companies may have had external-facing services, particularly web services, but this was still generally a narrow and restricted area. IT wasn’t a revenue-generating or strategic department; it was a supporting environment viewed as a cost center. One of the outcomes of an infrastructure-focused environment is that developers lost a sense of what their code was doing. Release cycles were long, and changes were slow. A developer would work on something and throw the code into testing or operations, and it would be released months later. Because of that long lead time, engineers lost the joy of being a developer—of creating something and seeing it work in real life. One of the great, powerful changes with digital transformation and related cultural and technology changes like DevOps is that it reintroduce
