Nimbula and Electric Cloud Release Free Plug-In That Provisions Cloud Environments for Developers

MOUNTAIN VIEW, CA and SAN JOSE, CA -- (Marketwire) -- 10/06/11 -- Today at the Electric Cloud Summit, Nimbula, the Cloud Operating System Company, announced an integrated solution with Electric Cloud so that development teams using ElectricCommander can now automatically manage and execute application build-test-deploy processes on Nimbula Director cloud resources. With this integration, developers can focus on the applications development process without worrying about the management of the underlying infrastructure resources.

Nimbula Director is an Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) for managing compute and storage resources. The software helps enterprises and service providers build powerful private, public and hybrid cloud infrastructure. The joint solution is distributed as an ElectricCommander plug-in that provisions Nimbula cloud environments, elastically growing/shrinking and tearing them down as needed in a self-service manner. The plug-in is free of charge and available for download at: http://nimbula.com/partners/electriccloud.

"Nimbula recognizes that developers are highly focused on application lifecycle development often through a DevOps methodology. They have infrastructure requirements but don't necessarily wish to manage them," said Reza Malekzadeh, VP of Marketing at Nimbula. "Nimbula Director is the underlying flexible, automated cloud foundation that provides resources when needed and reclaims them when they're no longer needed."

"Cloud infrastructure is widely used among engineering teams in the enterprise to support software development, testing and deployment. Nimbula Director is designed to service that market," said Anders Wallgren, CTO of Electric Cloud. "With today's announcement from Nimbula and Electric Cloud, teams can automatically manage the lifecycle of cloud resources in the context of the development process to achieve greater development agility, create higher quality software and speed time-to-market."

So the dumpster is on fire. Again. The site's down. Your boss's face is an ever-deepening purple. And you begin debating whether you should join the #incident channel or call an ambulance to deal with his impending stroke. Yes, we know this is a developer's fault. There's plenty of time for blame later. Postmortems have a macabre name because they were once intended to be Viking-like funerals for someone's job. But we're civilized now. Sort of. So we call them post-incident reviews. Fires are never going to stop. We're human. We miss bugs. Or we fat finger a command - deleting dozens of servers and bringing down S3 in US-EAST-1 for hours - effectively halting the internet. These things happen.
Hackers took three days to identify and exploit a known vulnerability in Equifax’s web applications. I will share new data that reveals why three days (at most) is the new normal for DevSecOps teams to move new business /security requirements from design into production. This session aims to enlighten DevOps teams, security and development professionals by sharing results from the 4th annual State of the Software Supply Chain Report -- a blend of public and proprietary data with expert research and analysis.Attendees can join this session to better understand how DevSecOps teams are applying lessons from W. Edwards Deming (circa 1982), Malcolm Goldrath (circa 1984) and Gene Kim (circa 2013) to improve their ability to respond to new business requirements and cyber risks.

The digital transformation is real! To adapt, IT professionals need to transform their own skillset to become more multi-dimensional by gaining both depth and breadth of a wide variety of knowledge and competencies. Historically, while IT has been built on a foundation of specialty (or "I" shaped) silos, the DevOps principle of "shifting left" is opening up opportunities for developers, operational staff, security and others to grow their skills portfolio, advance their careers and become "T"-shaped.
