Impact of a digital transformation on software development Introduction In the past 10 years software development has changed significantly. So did software operations. Software development and operations form a continuous interplay. Let’s have a closer look, outline these changes and see how they lead to the emergence of modern application platforms. Find the cutting edge… Read more »
Virtualization & Clustered VMs Physical clusters provide options to make applications highly available. With the rise of virtualization technologies such as VMware, XEN and KVM it became easy to slice a physical host into smaller virtual chunks known as virtual machines (VMs). This leads to multiple advantages.
Devops Gen 2 & Infrastructure as Code The emergence of reliable infrastructures — virtual data centers controllable via API — enable new automation strategies in software operations. The usage of persistent disks to store important data on remotely attached block devices makes virtual machines disposable. These ephemeral VMs do not need intense protection as their… Read more »
