A DevOps Interview Series By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

An interview series featuring my DevOps friends, letting them talk about what they have planned for 2015

What’s Planned for 2015? A DevOps Interview Series

By Jason Hand

I’m not one for lofty or overly-ambitious New Year’s resolutions, but I do feel that the beginning of the year is an excellent time to set  goals and make some changes in the name of continuous improvement.

A personal goal I set for myself this year was to do better about staying in touch with friends and family. Often times I feel like I rely on social media to fill me in on what everyone who is important to me is up to. While social media is great and I love seeing pictures and reading about everyone’s personal and professional adventures, it lacks a true emotional and personal connection that only comes from spending quality time with each other, communicating directly with one another .

I’ve decided that this effort should be extended beyond my own family and personal friends.

Over the next several months, I’m going to share with you an interview series featuring my DevOps friends, letting them talk about what they have planned for 2015. To preview some of the folks I’ll be communicating with, I’ve put together a teaser of who I’ll be talking with in one form or another. All of them have some very exciting things coming up and I can’t wait to share with you what they are.

Hardware virtualization and cloud computing allowed us to increase resource utilization and increase our flexibility to respond to business demand.

Today’s businesses can no longer focus solely on the digital interactions they manage with employees or customers; they must now contend with non-traditional factors. Whether it's the power of brand to make or break a company, the need to monitor across all locations 24/7, or the ability to proactively resolve issues, companies must adapt to the new world.
