Our New Boundary Integration is Here

By Samantha Haltman

Network visibility and access to real-time data surrounding your infrastructure is pretty important, don’t you think? With Boundary, users can identify problems quickly, and ensure their applications and supporting infrastructure are running smoothly and at peak efficiency.

We are happy to announce that our integration with Boundary, providers of IT monitoring for DevOps teams, is now available. Getting the Boundary integration up and running is as easy as copying and pasting an API key, which can be found in your VictorOps admin interface. Just click on the Integrations tab and choose ‘Boundary’. You will then see an API token to provide to the Boundary UI. Piece of cake.

Here is a little walk through to help you with the process:

1. Log into your VictorOps account (you will need to have admin privileges). Click on settings –> integrations –> Boundary:

Enterprises are universally struggling to understand where the new tools and methodologies of DevOps fit into their organizations, and are universally making the same mistakes. These mistakes are not unavoidable, and in fact, avoiding them gifts an organization with sustained competitive advantage, just like it did for Japanese Manufacturing Post WWII.
When building large, cloud-based applications that operate at a high scale, it's important to maintain a high availability and resilience to failures. In order to do that, you must be tolerant of failures, even in light of failures in other areas of your application. "Fly two mistakes high" is an old adage in the radio control airplane hobby. It means, fly high enough so that if you make a mistake, you can continue flying with room to still make mistakes. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Lee Atchison, Principal Cloud Architect and Advocate at New Relic, discussed how this same philosophy can be applied to highly scaled applications, and can dramatically increase your resilience to failure.
DevOpsSummit New York 2018, colocated with CloudEXPO | DXWorldEXPO New York 2018 will be held November 11-13, 2018, in New York City. Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with the introduction of DXWorldEXPO within the program. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term.
With more than 30 Kubernetes solutions in the marketplace, it's tempting to think Kubernetes and the vendor ecosystem has solved the problem of operationalizing containers at scale or of automatically managing the elasticity of the underlying infrastructure that these solutions need to be truly scalable. Far from it. There are at least six major pain points that companies experience when they try to deploy and run Kubernetes in their complex environments. In this presentation, the speaker will detail these pain points and explain how cloud can address them.
