What is DevOps? And why you’re not there yet.

What is DevOps? And why you’re not there yet.

As a TechOps community, we’re awash in buzz words. Most are initially used to establish geek credibility yet quickly become cliches. Take, for example, the term “DevOps”. From its inception as a Twitter hashtag used to promote a meetup in bucolic Ghent, Belgium in 2009, it began to be co-opted months later by ops teams around the world aspiring to manage infrastructure with code.

15 hours of down time… avoided: part two of a two-part series

15 hours of down time… avoided: part two of a two-part series

This is part two of a two-part post about using event correlation to thwart DDoS attacks. Channeling Mark Twain: it would have been shorter if I had more time.

In this post I’ll share a customer story about a security breach that never happened… thanks to a savvy DevOps team and data science.

Why DDoS attacks aren’t just a security problem… and monitoring traffic isn’t the solution – Part One

Why DDoS attacks aren’t just a security problem… and monitoring traffic isn’t the solution – Part One

Every company’s a target, every customer’s at risk. But the now-cliched threat of data breaches from Distributed Denial of Service (DDoS) attacks obscures a bigger threat: outages that impact not just data integrity but also profitability, brand equity, and customer retention. 

The volume of attacks is growing and so is the impact of down time. According to Akamai’s most recent State of the Internet report, DDoS attacks are a bigger threat than ever before. “The number of DDoS attacks continued to increase substantially in Q2 2015, more than doubling the number observed in Q2 2014.”

Monitoring Sprawl, and the Rise of KPIs

In the last two decades, with the emergence of cloud infrastructure and SaaS delivery models, the monitoring ecosystem has changed dramatically to include over 100 monitoring solutions. The upside of that change is the rapid implementation of monitoring infrastructure, but the unintended consequence of this is that the tools themselves decide what IT measures.

A Practical Guide to Anomaly Detection for DevOps

A Practical Guide to Anomaly Detection for DevOps

Anomaly detection for monitoring has been a trending topic in recent years. And while the math behind it is fascinating, too much of the discussion has revolved around histograms, moving averages and standard deviations. More discussion needs to happen around its practical applications, and for that reason, this practical guide to anomaly detection will attempt to provide an actionable overview of current off-the-shelf anomaly detection tools.
