21 #DevOps and #Docker Reference Architectures | @DevOpsSummit #IoT

The Sonatype community recently put together a set of 21 reference architectures for devs building apps with Docker.

21 DevOps and Docker Reference Architectures

When building DevOps or continuous delivery practices you can learn a great deal from others.  What choices did they make, what practices did they put in place, and how did they connect the dots?

At Sonatype, we pulled together a set of 21 reference architectures for folks building continuous delivery and DevOps practices using Docker. Why?  After 3,000 DevOps professionals attended our webinar on "Continuous Integration using Docker" discussing just one reference architecture example, we recognized there was a strong interest in the community to learn more.  That's why we assembled 20 more reference architectures into this collection.

A picture speaks a thousand words, but beyond the images, we also share the details of each DevOps/CD Docker reference architecture.  In the bottom right corner of each slide, we share the original blog or presentation source for the image.  When one of the images piques your interest, you can then dive deep into the source.  Cool, huh?

Think of this set of reference architectures as open source.  The slides are free to view, download, and distribute.  Share with others if you find them helpful.

Oh, and if you have a Docker reference architecture we should add to the deck, please let us know.  We would love to add it to our deck for others to learn from - just like the others we included, you will be sure to get full attribution for your work.

For those of you not using Docker, we did publish a set of DevOps and continuous delivery reference architectures last year on Dzone. With over 82,000 views and 3,300 downloads, many people in the community have found it helpful.

@DevOpsSummit Stories
The need for greater agility and scalability necessitated the digital transformation in the form of following equation: monolithic to microservices to serverless architecture (FaaS). To keep up with the cut-throat competition, the organisations need to update their technology stack to make software development their differentiating factor. Thus microservices architecture emerged as a potential method to provide development teams with greater flexibility and other advantages, such as the ability to deliver applications at warp speed using infrastructure as a service (IaaS) and platform as a service (PaaS) environments.
The use of containers by developers -- and now increasingly IT operators -- has grown from infatuation to deep and abiding love. But as with any long-term affair, the honeymoon soon leads to needing to live well together ... and maybe even getting some relationship help along the way. And so it goes with container orchestration and automation solutions, which are rapidly emerging as the means to maintain the bliss between rapid container adoption and broad container use among multiple cloud hosts. This BriefingsDirect cloud services maturity discussion focuses on new ways to gain container orchestration, to better use serverless computing models, and employ inclusive management to keep the container love alive.
ChatOps is an emerging topic that has led to the wide availability of integrations between group chat and various other tools/platforms. Currently, HipChat is an extremely powerful collaboration platform due to the various ChatOps integrations that are available. However, DevOps automation can involve orchestration and complex workflows. In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 20th Cloud Expo, Himanshu Chhetri, CTO at Addteq, will cover practical examples and use cases such as self-provisioning infrastructure/applications, self-remediation workflows, integrating monitoring and complimenting integrations between Atlassian tools and other top tools in the industry.
A strange thing is happening along the way to the Internet of Things, namely far too many devices to work with and manage. It has become clear that we'll need much higher efficiency user experiences that can allow us to more easily and scalably work with the thousands of devices that will soon be in each of our lives. Enter the conversational interface revolution, combining bots we can literally talk with, gesture to, and even direct with our thoughts, with embedded artificial intelligence, which can process our conversational commands and orchestrate the outcomes we request across our personal and professional realm of connected devices.
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?
