The Great Debate: DevOps from the C-Suite to the Weeds

At DevOps Summit, JumpCloud CEO Rajat Bhargava will clarify the benefits of DevOps from both a technical & business perspective

DevOps Summit Early Bird Savings here!

With its heavy focus on automation and increased production speeds, the emerging DevOps paradigm draws very real parallels to the industrial revolution, only in the new modern era of tech production.

In his session at 2nd DevOps Summit, Rajat Bhargava, co-founder and CEO of JumpCloud Inc., will aim to first define the transformative DevOps movement from the unique, dual vantage points that he's grown to know very well over the course of his career - as a tech CEO and an investor of tech companies.

The presentation will also outline the most common manual tasks that are ripe for automation, and subsequent best practices for streamlining the DevOps lifecycle through automated provisioning, configuration, monitoring and management. Despite reports from leading experts like Gene Kim that prove that DevOps teams are more Agile and reliable, with 30 times more frequent deployments and 8,000 times faster cycle times, many in the industry remain skeptical about the power of automating basic IT processes to drive real business results. This presentation will clarify the benefits of DevOps from both a technical and business perspective, and advance the movement by sharing proven best practices built upon years of experience.

@DevOpsSummit Stories
The Kubernetes vision is to democratize the building of distributed systems. As adoption of Kubernetes increases, the project is growing in popularity; it currently has more than 1,500 contributors who have made 62,000+ commits. Kubernetes acts as a cloud orchestration layer, reducing barriers to cloud adoption and eliminating vendor lock-in for enterprises wanting to use cloud service providers. Organizations can develop and run applications on any public cloud, such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure, Red Hat OpenShift and Google Cloud Platform.
Because Linkerd is a transparent proxy that runs alongside your application, there are no code changes required. It even comes with Prometheus to store the metrics for you and pre-built Grafana dashboards to show exactly what is important for your services - success rate, latency, and throughput. In this session, we'll explain what Linkerd provides for you, demo the installation of Linkerd on Kubernetes and debug a real world problem. We will also dig into what functionality you can build on top of the tools provided by Linkerd such as alerting and autoscaling.
With container technologies widely recognized as the cloud-era standard for workload scaling and application mobility, organizations are increasingly seeking to support container-based workflows. In particular, the desire to containerize a diverse spectrum of enterprise applications has highlighted the need for reliable, container-friendly, persistent storage. However, to effectively complement today's cloud-centric container orchestration platforms, persistent storage solutions must blend reliability and scalability with a simple, cloud-native user experience. The introduction of Elastifile's CSI driver addresses these needs by augmenting containerized workflows with highly-available, scalable NFS file storage delivered via Elastifile Cloud File System...and with no complex, manual storage provisioning required.
Applications with high availability requirements must be deployed to multiple clusters to ensure reliability. Historically, this has been done by pulling nodes from other availability zones into the same cluster. However, if the cluster failed, the application would still become unavailable. Rancher’s support for multi-cluster applications is a significant step forward, solving this problem by allowing users to select the application and the target clusters, providing cluster specific data. Rancher then initiates deployment to those clusters.
Implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI) for Kubernetes delivers persistent storage for compute running in Kubernetes-managed containers. This future-proofs Kubernetes+Storage deployments. Unlike the Kubernetes Flexvol-based volume plugin, storage is no longer tightly coupled or dependent on Kubernetes releases. This creates greater stability because the storage interface is decoupled entirely from critical Kubernetes components allowing separation of privileges as CSI components do not need full privileges of Kubernetes components. With the implementation of Container Storage Interface (CSI), persistent data layer for Kubernetes and other Container Orchestration (CO) tools, such as Mesos and Docker Swarm are now future-proofed.
