The actual services running on these instances tend to run through Upstart. The result of the recent Init Wars in the Debian community, I find Upstart to be an acceptable Init system, and certainly is easy enough to configure – drop a conf file in a reasonably minimal format into /etc/init and you are done.
My general impressions from this summit are two-fold, both on a personal and technical level - the community itself is great, and that people are doing some really amazing and useful stuff. In this post i will give a short technical overview of a few interesting projects i think are worth mentioning.
Unfortunately, most IT teams do not have an environment fostering the rapid iteration, streamlined workflow, and effective collaboration required to operate at the speed of now and capture business opportunity.
In combination, the aim is to both help get more meta-data about APIs available in public and also begin making it easier to find these APIs. We’re also open-sourcing the API Search engine, so others can run their own search engines also (see APIs.io) for more information on this.
If you track back the origins of most IT compliance standards and regulations they have emerged as a way to drive and enforce specific behaviors. It’s a way industries help reduce risk aspects, hopefully driving an improved collective behavior for all.
As a part of monitoring and troubleshooting our system and applications, we often need to get a quick snapshot of information about the status of our server. This usually means SSHing into a server and running certain commands to get to the information we need.
The idea of this blog post is to give you a short introduction on how to do Real time sync with Mule ESB. We’ll use several of the newest features that Mule has to offer – like the improved Poll component with watermarking and the Batch Module.
While I was implementing a small, naive log aggregation tool I had a moment to consider the type of compression I wanted to use on the log files at rest. The main implication this has outside of the efficiency of compression and how much space the files will take up is how they can be used once stored.
Successful movements have a clear manifesto outlining goals and principles. Many DevOps adopters may not be aware of the DevOps Manifesto (created by Jez Humble @jezhumble) nor how successful DevOps requires keeping a clear focus on principles, practices, and value (instead of infrastructure tooling.
With my current client, I need to be able to access files, servers, and tools on their remote network, which they enable via the Cisco AnyConnect VPN client software. So far, so good. I had no trouble at all installing and connecting with this software from my laptop over my FiOS connection.
Thanks to the popularity of REST, most of us now know HTTP methods like GET, POST, PUT and DELETE better than we probably care to. Nonetheless, most of you probably don't know much about a more obscure but pretty handy HTTP method - PATCH.
