Taking DevOps Mainstream

In this article, Shawn Edmondson describes how the rise of DevOps can be measured right alongside the rise of cloud in its level of mainstream acceptance. Learn how DevOps takes a common sense approach to development while using agile methodologies and automation at the same time.

The Beauty of Agile in the Cloud

As compared to other development methods, agile is clear, straightforward, and rewarding for all of those who are involved in the process. Most of you know this already—that’s why you’re here! Clearly, a successful transition to agile requires a strong organizational commitment and a number of management and development changes. With that in mind, the white-hot movement to this trend over the past year continues to amaze me. In striking parallel, the industry has seen this same sort of resonance around the trend to the “cloud”—secure anywhere access by distributed teams to a centralized set of services and compute resources that span the complete lifecycle of the development and deployment process.

Conquering the Testing Challenges of Serverless Applications
Slideshow

Serverless cloud applications are becoming mainstream. Teams focus on developing and deploying code on a known technology stack and runtime, with fixed interfaces for application, database, and network, and they offer lower costs, faster development, and elastic growth.

Agile DevOps East Serverless Security: Overcome Architectural Security Challenges
Slideshow

Serverless architectures take the idea of microservices to the extreme. To implement secure serverless architectures, you have to understand how to compartmentalize programs at the function level. You also need to factor in security practices: Serverless architectures are susceptible to traditional attacks such as SQL injection and command injection, along with a wide variety of privilege escalation and sensitive data disclosure attacks. Developers must consider what would happen if an attacker attempted to invoke each of their functions directly. What if one of those functions were to become nonresponsive? Designing, implementing, and maintaining serverless architectures dramatically increases the complexity of security. Join Eric Sheridan as he discusses how to implement distributed, secure identity management and entitlement enforcement across 250+ functions.
