"Stand alone development solutions have become things of the past," said John Fanelli, vice president, product planning and management, Wind River. "Development today is more intermeshed and complex than it has ever been. The only way for device developers to dramatically cut the time and cost associated with developing technologically advanced offerings is to use a development environment that works just as easily on one platform, in any role, as it does on any another. Wind River Workbench makes that optimized development dream possible."

With the release of Workbench 2.3, the Workbench product line offers four configurations that allow organizations developing device software to outfit their developers with a specific package tuned to address their particular requirements. The four configurations include:

Wind River Workbench

The premier Wind River Workbench configuration provides a complete development solution for device software targeting VxWorks-, Linux- and ThreadX-based devices. Within this configuration, developers have access to the full range of capabilities required for hardware bring-up, platform and system software development, kernel-level development and application-level development. In addition, this release of Wind River Workbench incorporates the deep dynamic visual debugging and validation capabilities that were acquired in January 2005. Wind River Workbench is offered as a tightly integrated component of Wind River's VxWorks- or Linux-based platforms, or as a standalone development suite for developing device software.

Wind River Workbench, Application Edition

This configuration of Workbench is designed to provide an equally powerful development solution targeted for use by Linux application developers who do not require advanced capabilities such as hardware bring-up or kernel-level development and debugging support. Wind River Workbench, Application Edition can be used to develop and debug on the target device that is being created or natively on a Linux host.

Wind River Workbench, Desktop Edition

This configuration of Wind River Workbench is ideally suited for developers looking to complement their existing development tool chain and/or debugger with a modern integrated development environment. Wind River Workbench, Desktop Edition provides powerful baseline development suite capabilities including a project system, build system, editor, and source code analysis capabilities identical to those offered in every Wind River Workbench configuration. Wind River Workbench, Desktop Edition can also be used simply as a code composition and comprehension environment, leveraging the power of its source code analysis capabilities and the integration of those capabilities with the editor.

Wind River Workbench, On-Chip Debugging Edition

This configuration of Workbench is designed to meet the needs of developers who are engaged early in the device software development cycle responsible for the initial board bring-up and validation, developing device drivers, incorporating low level software capabilities, and developing C/C++ applications. Wind River Workbench, On-Chip Debugging Edition offers a fully featured Wind River Workbench development environment optimized for the capabilities of JTAG-based debugging using Wind River ICE and Wind River Probe. This configuration is an ideal solution when working to bring up hardware that can be best debugged using JTAG-based run control.

Eclipse Device Software Development Platform Update

Wind River is delivering on its promise to lead the industry's effort to drive standardization and value into the DSO developer community. In March of this year, Wind River and the Eclipse Foundation announced that Wind River was proposing and would lead an Eclipse Device Software Development Platform project, the first project specifically for device software development. Since that time, Wind River has made great progress in working with the community to define the DSDP project in more detail. The proposal has been posted on the Eclipse website at: http://www.eclipse.org/proposals/eclipse-dsdp/index.html and a DSDP newsgroup has been established for public review and comment at: news://news.eclipse.org/eclipse.dsdp .

"Wind River has been a valued contributor to the Eclipse Foundation, and we are very positive about the direction in which the Device Software Development Platform project is moving," said Mike Milinkovich, executive director of the Eclipse Foundation, Inc. "The device realm is truly an important area of software development and product differentiation, and we are confident that this new project is going to add tremendous value to the Eclipse community."

The dynamic nature of the cloud means that change is a constant when it comes to modern cloud-based infrastructure. Delivering modern applications to end users, therefore, is a constantly shifting challenge. Delivery automation helps IT Ops teams ensure that apps are providing an optimal end user experience over hybrid-cloud and multi-cloud environments, no matter what the current state of the infrastructure is. To employ a delivery automation strategy that reflects your business rules, making real-time decisions based on a combination of real user monitoring, synthetic testing, APM, NGINX / local load balancers, and other data sources, is critical.
Digital transformation is changing the face of business. The IDC predicts that enterprises will commit to a massive new scale of digital transformation, to stake out leadership positions in the "digital transformation economy." Accordingly, attendees at the upcoming Cloud Expo | @ThingsExpo at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA, Oct 31-Nov 2, will find fresh new content in a new track called Enterprise Cloud & Digital Transformation.
Most technology leaders, contemporary and from the hardware era, are reshaping their businesses to do software. They hope to capture value from emerging technologies such as IoT, SDN, and AI. Ultimately, irrespective of the vertical, it is about deriving value from independent software applications participating in an ecosystem as one comprehensive solution. In his session at @ThingsExpo, Kausik Sridhar, founder and CTO of Pulzze Systems, will discuss how given the magnitude of today's application ecosystem, tweaking existing software to stitch various components together leads to sub-optimal solutions. This definitely deserves a re-think, and paves the way for a new breed of lightweight application servers that are micro-services and DevOps ready!

In a recent survey, Sumo Logic surveyed 1,500 customers who employ cloud services such as Amazon Web Services (AWS), Microsoft Azure, and Google Cloud Platform (GCP). According to the survey, a quarter of the respondents have already deployed Docker containers and nearly as many (23 percent) are employing the AWS Lambda serverless computing framework. It’s clear: serverless is here to stay. The adoption does come with some needed changes, within both application development and operations. That means serverless is also changing the way we leverage public clouds. Truth-be-told, many enterprise IT shops were so happy to get out of the management of physical servers within a data center that many limitations of the existing public IaaS clouds were forgiven. However, now that we’ve lived a few years with public IaaS clouds, developers and CloudOps pros are giving a huge thumbs down to the ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This leads to a waste of cloud resources and increased operational overhead.
SYS-CON Events announced today that Avere Systems, a leading provider of enterprise storage for the hybrid cloud, will exhibit at SYS-CON's 21st International Cloud Expo®, which will take place on Oct 31 - Nov 2, 2017, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, CA. Avere delivers a more modern architectural approach to storage that doesn't require the overprovisioning of storage capacity to achieve performance, overspending on expensive storage media for inactive data or the overbuilding of data centers to house increasing amounts of storage infrastructure.
Containers are rapidly finding their way into enterprise data centers, but change is difficult. How do enterprises transform their architecture with technologies like containers without losing the reliable components of their current solutions? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Tony Campbell, Director, Educational Services at CoreOS, will explore the challenges organizations are facing today as they move to containers and go over how Kubernetes applications can deploy with legacy components, and also go over automated capabilities provided by operators to auto-update Kubernetes with zero downtime for current and secure deployments.

Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reduction in cost and increase in speed. Sometimes in order to reduce complexity teams compromise features or change requirements
The next XaaS is CICDaaS. Why? Because CICD saves developers a huge amount of time. CD is an especially great option for projects that require multiple and frequent contributions to be integrated. But… securing CICD best practices is an emerging, essential, yet little understood practice for DevOps teams and their Cloud Service Providers. The only way to get CICD to work in a highly secure environment takes collaboration, patience and persistence. Building CICD in the cloud requires rigorous architectural and coordination work to minimize the volatility of the cloud environment and leverage the security features of the cloud to the benefit of the CICD pipeline.

When it comes to cloud computing, the ability to turn massive amounts of compute cores on and off on demand sounds attractive to IT staff, who need to manage peaks and valleys in user activity. With cloud bursting, the majority of the data can stay on premises while tapping into compute from public cloud providers, reducing risk and minimizing need to move large files. In his session at 18th Cloud Expo, Scott Jeschonek, Director of Product Management at Avere Systems, discussed the IT and business benefits that cloud bursting provides, including increased compute capacity, lower IT investment, financial agility, and, ultimately, faster time-to-market.
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable? Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, will answer these questions and demonstrate techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and cost-effective resources on AWS, coupled with the ability to deliver a minimum set of functionalities that cover the majority of needs – without configuration complexity.
