28 DevOps and Continuous Delivery Reference Architectures

People want to get going with DevOps or Continuous Delivery, but need a place to start.  Others are already on their way, but need some validation of their choices.  A few months ago, I published the first volume of DevOps and Continuous Delivery reference architectures which has now been viewed over 50,000 times on SlideShare (it's free to download...no registration required).  Three things helped people in the deck: (1) the reference architectures, (2) links to the sources for each architecture attached to each slide, and (3) no marketing fluff.

To continue to help people on their DevOps and Continuous Delivery journeys, I've now compiled Volume 2 of the reference architectures.  You can view the deck on SlideShare, download it (again...no registration required), and share it with others.  Have a look and let me know what you think.

Earlier this month, I moderated a discussion with Dave Farley, co-author of seminal book Continuous Delivery, and Curtis Yanko and Brian Dawson.  All three shared their views as experienced practitioners on why these reference architectures are resonating with the CD / DevOps community. Check it out when you get a minute.

As I did with Volume 1, if you have a reference architecture that you would like to share, I would be happy to add it into Volume 2 with full attribution to you.  We have added 14 with the support of the DevOps community.  Just ping me in the comments section or reach out to me @weekstweets.

Here is Volume 2:

@DevOpsSummit Stories
While some developers care passionately about how data centers and clouds are architected, for most, it is only the end result that matters. To the majority of companies, technology exists to solve a business problem, and only delivers value when it is solving that problem. 2017 brings the mainstream adoption of containers for production workloads. In his session at 21st Cloud Expo, Ben McCormack, VP of Operations at Evernote, discussed how data centers of the future will be managed, how the public cloud best suits your organization, and what the future holds for operations and infrastructure engineers in a post-container world. Is a serverless world inevitable?
Wooed by the promise of faster innovation, lower TCO, and greater agility, businesses of every shape and size have embraced the cloud at every layer of the IT stack – from apps to file sharing to infrastructure. The typical organization currently uses more than a dozen sanctioned cloud apps and will shift more than half of all workloads to the cloud by 2018. Such cloud investments have delivered measurable benefits. But they’ve also resulted in some unintended side-effects: complexity and risk. End users now struggle to navigate multiple environments with varying degrees of performance. Companies are unclear on the security of their data and network access. And IT squads are overwhelmed trying to monitor and manage it all.
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.
