We've started to use a new time-series database called Dalmatiner DB which relies on the filesystem for features like compression and consistency checking. Initially this database was written for SmartOS which has native ZFS support but given the maturity of ZFS on Linux we thought we'd run our setup on Linux.
Recently I've been documenting our API's using Slate which is a static site generator. It turns markdown text into pretty html. We've had customers using our API's for a while but the docs were hosted on a Github wiki page and weren't very friendly or nice to look at. Since making the docs better we've had more people build things!
To kick off 2016 we held our January meetup at Sainsbury's Tech Hub in Holborn, with one of our largest attendances yet! As usual, 3 great talks followed by beer and pizza networking. If you'd like to join our next meetup on March 17th at Mark's & Spencer's digital hub then sign up here: http://www.meetup.com/DevOps-Exchange-London/events/228946395/
This month we held our meetup at the one of our favourite venues, DigitasLBI. As usual, 3 great speakers followed by beer and pizza afterwards.
Packs provide a way to one-click setup monitoring. As of today we have packs for Base Operating System Monitoring, Elastic Search, IIS, Memcache, Mongo DB, MS SQL, Redis and Riak. Packs are really simple and quick to create so we’ll likely balloon up in number over the next few weeks.
Tony from Linux Recruit had the great idea of hosting a DevOps Exchange meetup at Vungle while he was in town for Kubecon, and it was always our plan to eventually take what has become the world's largest DevOps meetup in London, over to the states, and see how it went over there.
