  DevOps: Disruptive but Essential in a Cloud Computing Universe
  Join us in New York City, Novemeber 11 - 13



The widespread success of cloud computing is driving the DevOps revolution in enterprise IT. Now as never before, development teams must communicate and collaborate in a dynamic, 24/7/365 environment. There is no time to wait for long development cycles that produce software that is obsolete at launch. DevOps may be disruptive, but it is essential.

DevOps at Cloud Expo - to be held June 5-7, 2018, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY - will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

Join us at DevOps at Cloud Expo June 5-7 for three days of intense DevOps discussion and focus.

We'll see you in New York!




DevOps Summit Power Panel | DevOps Five Years Later: What Does the Future Hold?
After more than five years of DevOps, definitions are evolving, boundaries are expanding, 'unicorns' are no longer rare, enterprises are on board, and pundits are moving on. Can we now look at an evolution of DevOps? Should we? Is the foundation of DevOps 'done', or is there still too much left to do? What is mature, and what is still missing? What does the next 5 years of DevOps look like?


The Top Keynotes, the Best Sessions, a Rock Star Faculty, and the Most Qualified Delegates on ANY DevOps Event!


DevOps is a software development method that stresses communication, collaboration and integration between software developers and information technology (IT) professionals. At DevOps Summit the breakout sessions will engage not just existing DevOps pros, but also managers and executives like CIOs and CISOs, Dev and Ops managers, business leaders and architects.

Trend Shift Analysis | @DevOpsSummit #DevOps #APM #Monitoring
In performance monitoring, trend, or trend shift, is a key metric that is used to indicate change

Trend Shift Analysis
By Pradeep Thalanki and Ankur Vishwakarma

‘Trend’ is a pretty common business term, but its definition tends to vary by industry. In performance monitoring, trend, or trend shift, is a key metric that is used to indicate change.

Why is trend shift important?
Change is inevitable. Today’s websites must frequently update and change to keep up with competition and attract new users, but such changes can have a negative impact on the user experience if not managed properly. The dynamic nature of the Internet makes it necessary to constantly monitor different metrics. One of the biggest challenges in performance monitoring the lack of clarity when configuring alerts. Alerts that are set up using the wrong configuration can lead to an overabundance of false positive alerts or no alerts at all, which results in an increased MTTR.

Webpage response is an important metric that affects end-user experience. If the page takes too long to load, the user gets frustrated and will likely abandon the webpage. A high page load time can be caused by several issues, some of the common problems are:

  1. The server that delivers the page content is unable to handle a surge in requests
  2. The webpage has too many third-party ads/images
  3. The network is sluggish due to maintenance

Monitoring webpage response values or keeping track of the trend shift can help identify any unusual webpage behavior and to ensure a positive user experience.

This is just one of the many scenarios where analyzing trend shift can be valuable. Trend shift alerts are also useful in:

  • Detecting trend shifts on specific ISP or region or city
  • Multi hosting or multi CDN environment

When can you use trend shift?
Trend shift alerts can be set up for metrics that are prone to constant variations in their values. In the image below, a trend shift was detected on July 18 at around 16:00, which continued for about 24 hours. Later, it returned to normal, indicating that the root cause was identified and fixed.

When is trend shift irrelevant?
Trend shift can be detected when there is a sudden change (for a few consecutive runs) in the usual pattern. But if this change is gradual rather than sudden, then trend shift cannot detect the problem. In such cases, warning and critical alerts should be set up for a specific value.

In the image below, we see that the webpage response has increased gradually. The webpage response is around 2500ms in the beginning and increased to around 3500ms over two days’ time. Trend shift alert is not triggered here as the value increased gradually.

Trend shift alerts using Catchpoint
Clients can configure trend shift alerts using Catchpoint; the alerts will help them take necessary action so that end-user experience is not affected.

Below is where you will find the trend shift alerts displayed:

  1. Smartboard page
  2. Alert Log page

Trend shift alerts in the Smartboard page
The assistant widget section in the Smartboard page displays trend shifts. The Smartboard page has been developed using artificial intelligence (intense computing algorithms) that detects the trend shifts. It computes the trend shift for the test time metric (total time taken to complete the test). The Smartboard page does not require any additional configuration to display the trend shift information.

Trend shift alerts in alerts Log
A trend shift alert is triggered and displayed in the alerts log page only after it has been configured in the test properties. Trend shifts can be detected for:

  1. Timing metrics – test time, DNS, send, wait, DOM load, etc.
  2. Ping metrics – ping packet loss, ping RTT
  3. Request metrics – #Requests, #Connections, #Redirects, #Images, #Scripts, #CSS, etc.
  4. Zone metrics – self downloaded bytes, %Self Bottleneck, %Third party bottleneck, etc.

Configuring trend shift alerts
Alerts can be set up in the advanced alerts section in the test properties page as shown below. The default recipients will be notified by an email when a trend shift is detected for the metric it was configured.

Where to find trend shift alerts?
The alerts log page displays a list of alerts; it can be filtered for specific tests and alert types (metric based) for a specified time interval.

How is Trend Shift alert different from other alert types?
For regular alerts, the user should configure the values over/below which an alert should be triggered. In the case of trend shift, however, the user should select the metric to be monitored for trend shift. Trend shift is based on historical comparison, therefore there is no need to set any specific values.

Advantages of trend shift analysis
Let’s take a real scenario where trend shift analysis can be critical. Ecommerce companies rake in major business during the annual sales like Black Friday and Cyber Monday. On such days, these websites experience a rapid hike in traffic with customers rushing in to grab the best deals. The servers managing the website may slow down considerably with the influx of requests. In the image below, we can see that the webpage response shot up during a special discount sale.

Trend shift detects such spikes in the webpage response and helps businesses identify the root cause of the issue. It can provide a lot of data around the incident such as:

  1. Identifying the city with the most number of users
  2. Identifying whether the ISP (Internet Service Provider) was capable of handling the load
  3. Building a better infrastructure so that the load is distributed

Summary
Trend shift signals a change in the website performance. It provides a starting point to analyze the change (increase/decrease) in the metric being monitored. Performance analysts can use this data to identify the root cause and take corrective measures if necessary. Proactively identifying and fixing the issue will improve the user experience and have a positive impact on the company’s revenue.

They say multi-cloud is coming, but organizations are leveraging multiple clouds already. According to a study by 451 Research, only 21% of organizations were using a single cloud. If you've found yourself unprepared for the barrage of cloud services introduced in your organization, you will need to change your approach to engaging with the business and engaging with vendors. Look at technologies that are on the way and work with the internal players involved to have a plan in place when the inevitable happens and the business begins to look at how these things can help affect your bottom line.

CI/CD is conceptually straightforward, yet often technically intricate to implement since it requires time and opportunities to develop intimate understanding on not only DevOps processes and operations, but likely product integrations with multiple platforms. This session intends to bridge the gap by offering an intense learning experience while witnessing the processes and operations to build from zero to a simple, yet functional CI/CD pipeline integrated with Jenkins, Github, Docker and Azure.
The now mainstream platform changes stemming from the first Internet boom brought many changes but didn’t really change the basic relationship between servers and the applications running on them. In fact, that was sort of the point. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Gordon Haff, senior cloud strategy marketing and evangelism manager at Red Hat, will discuss how today’s workloads require a new model and a new platform for development and execution. The platform must handle a wide range of recent developments, including containers and Docker, distributed resource management, and DevOps tool chains and processes. The resulting infrastructure and management framework must be optimized for distributed and scalable applications, take advantage of innovation stemming from a wide variety of open source projects, span hybrid environments, and be adaptable to equally fundamental changes happen...

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the massive amount of information associated with these devices. Ed presented sought out sessions at Cl...
Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by sharing information within the building and with outside city infrastructure via real time shared cl...
Digital Transformation is much more than a buzzword. The radical shift to digital mechanisms for almost every process is evident across all industries and verticals. This is often especially true in financial services, where the legacy environment is many times unable to keep up with the rapidly shifting demands of the consumer. The constant pressure to provide complete, omnichannel delivery of customer-facing solutions to meet both regulatory and customer demands is putting enormous pressure on organizations of all sizes and in every line of business. Fintech is a constant battleground for th...
