Continuous Verification In A Serverless World @ Open Source Community Day

Continuous Verification In A Serverless World @ Open Source Community Day

At VMware we define Continuous Verification as:

“A process of querying external systems and using information from the response to make decisions to improve the development and deployment process.”

At #OSSDay, I got a chance to not only talk about what that means for serverless apps and how you can build it into your existing pipelines using tools like GitLab, CloudHealth, Wavefront and Gotling.

If you’ve read the blog posts on CloudJourney.io before, you’ve likely read the term “Continuous Verification”. If you haven’t that’s okay too. There’s an amazing article from Dan Illson and Bill Shetti on The New Stack explaining in detail what Continuous Verification is. In a nutshell, the Continuous Verification comes down to making sure that DevOps teams put as many checks as possible into their CI/CD pipelines. Adding checks into a pipeline means there are fewer manual tasks and that means you have access to more data tot smooth out and improve your development and deployment process.

So far we covered the tools and technologies, Continuous Integration, and Infrastructure as Code aspects of the ACME Serverless Fitness Shop. Now, it’s time to dive into observability!

In part one we covered the tools and technologies and in part two we covered the Continuous Integration aspect of the ACME Serverless Fitness Shop. Now, it’s time to dive into Infrastructure as Code!

Building Modern Marketplaces With Modern Technologies

Building Modern Marketplaces With Modern Technologies

In a previous article, we looked at why developers should care about marketplaces to begin with. In that article, we spoke about how marketplaces accelerate time to market for apps by providing secure access to the components developers need to build world-class solutions. As the VMware teams build out the VMware Cloud Marketplace, we wanted to give you some insights into their journey to build the next-generation digital marketplace for all developers.

There’s an amazing article from Dan Illson and Bill Shetti on The New Stack explaining in detail what Continuous Verification is. To make sure we’re all on the same page, though, I’ll quickly go over it as well. As a definition, Continuous Verification is “A process of querying external system(s) and using information from the response to make decision(s) to improve the development and deployment process.”.

Tracking Distributed Errors In Serverless Apps

Tracking Distributed Errors In Serverless Apps

Microservices give us as developers an incredible amount of freedom. We can choose our language and we can decide where and when to deploy our service. One of the biggest challenges with microservices, though, is figuring out how things go wrong. With microservices, we can build large, distributed applications, but that also means finding what goes wrong is challenging. It’s even harder to trace errors when you use a platform like AWS Lambda.

Hybrid Security - From On-Prem to Serverless

Hybrid Security - From On-Prem to Serverless

DevOps, as a practice to build and deliver software, has been around for over a decade. What about adding security to that, though? After all, security is one of the cornerstones of today’s information technology. As it turns out, one of the first mentions of adding security was a Gartner blog post in 2012. Neil MacDonald wrote,

“DevOps must evolve to a new vision of DevOpsSec that balances the need for speed and agility of enterprise IT capabilities (…)".
