Last week's DevOps Exchange San Francisco Meetup was really good. Jean Philippe Bélanger, Software Engineer (DevOps) at Upgrade talked about how to empower your developers with on-demand and sandbox environment and David Gildeh, reminded everyone that Azure is not as sheet as he thought it would be.... In addition, Upgrade.com hosted this event in San Francisco welcoming everyone with good beers, wines, and pizzas. We just enjoyed a great moment with great speakers.

Introducing JMXQuery to Monitor Java via Python

Posted by : David Gildeh | Monitoring, Java, JMX, open-source

Back in December 2014, we had a team Christmas hackathon and I decided I wanted to make Java Monitoring really simple via our agent and integration plugins. At that time we were recommending new users monitor Java services using solutions like Jolokia, listed in this blog we wrote back then. It was frustrating that our users could monitor non-Java services in a few clicks but the moment they wanted to monitor Java we had to get them to install 3rd party agents, and there were so many ways of doing it there was no consistent way we could rely on to make it a one click setup like our non-Java integrations. It broke the whole setup experience.

Monitoring Kubernetes (part 1)

Posted by : David Gildeh | Docker Containers, Monitoring Wisdom, Monitoring, Kubernetes

In 2017, we saw the rise and eventual takeover of the container orchestration tool, Kubernetes. Although a lot of great alternatives exist such as Docker Swarm, Mesos and Amazon ECS, Kubernetes became the leader for running containers at scale. Its benefits are that it’s Cloud native (it was designed to run applications at scale on Cloud platforms) and the ability to provide a virtual abstraction layer on top of Cloud providers enabling users to deploy their applications consistently between Cloud providers.

#DOXLON November 2017

Posted by : David Gildeh | DOXLON, DevOps Exchange (DOXLON), DevOps

Our November DOXLON only had a couple of talks this month, both focusing on the culture and success of DevOps in two London organisations, Reevoo and HSBC. However our vertain speakers (who've spoken at DOXLON in the past) really managed to fill up the extra time with some great stories and insights on how they implemented DevOps in their organisations.
