Making Your Private Cloud DevOps Ready

handshake generic

For enterprises, implementing new software development processes like DevOps and continuous integration/continuous deliver, or CI/CD, means giving application developers a more agile, responsive and efficient cloud infrastructure.

For cloud operators, however, delivering that infrastructure can be a big challenge.

AppFormix recently joined with Rackspace in a webinar addressing the challenges operators face in delivering a DevOps-friendly infrastructure.

Kicking off the webinar was Rackspace Senior Director of Product Management Bryan Thompson, who leads the product team for Rackspace private cloud. Powered by Openstack, the world’s de facto standard for Infrastructure as a Service, Rackspace’s private cloud offers a single platform for managing containerized apps, virtual apps and bare metal apps across private, public and hybrid clouds.

Rackspace essentially offers “OpenStack as a Service” and simplifies for customers the process of setting up, configuring, monitoring and scaling OpenStack.

Rackspace is dedicated to supporting new software development processes like DevOps and CI/CD, Bryan said; the goal is to enable self-service capability for developers and eliminate the traditional bottlenecks encountered when allocating resources for testing, deployment and production at scale. The key to accomplishing this goal is helping operators overcome performance-hampering challenges of cloud management. He gave three examples of such challenges.

  • Very short life cycles of compute instances — Operators are adapting to a new paradigm managing “cloudy” and container-based workloads and volatile virtual machines. Applications and tiers of this cloud-native model are designed to scale up and grow very rapidly, then be torn down when not needed. In these agile environments, especially when using containers, application life cycles may be only minutes long. The life cycles of compute instances can be so short, in fact, that traditional monitoring tools are insufficient — the instance has come and gone before it can even be monitored and reported, especially if human intervention is required. Automated, real-time monitoring is needed to provide accurate, useful and actionable insight into these workloads.
  • Limited visibility to demand for capacity planning — With dynamic, versatile workloads to manage, operators need to be proactive in guaranteeing certain levels of service, availability and performance to their end customers. They need reliable capacity planning tools that offer visibility into all resources in the cloud stack to help predict when and where additional resources will be needed, before constraints occur.
  • Lack of access to real-time telemetry and performance data of physical and virtual infrastructure — In a DevOps world, the ability to deliver the experience end users demand requires infrastructure transparency of the entire cloud stack—down to the processor level. Operators need access to this information, of course, but also they need to be able to share it with developers so developers may consume infrastructure analytics within their applications and schedule workloads to achieve maximum performance.

Fortunately, through its partnership with AppFormix, Rackspace is able to address these challenges and more. The AppFormix cloud service optimization platform is now built in to every Rackspace private cloud, empowering operators with a data-driven cloud and all of its game-changing benefits.

DevOps benefits from data-driven private clouds

Also during our webinar, we explored how a data-driven cloud offers powerful solutions.

First, let’s define “data-driven cloud.”  A data-driven cloud is one that uses real-time, continuous analysis and measurement against totally customizable and configurable SLAs. An example is  Rackspace Private Cloud, which now includes the AppFormix cloud service optimization platform that delivers all of the game-changing benefits of a data-driven cloud.

With a data-driven cloud, operators have the ability to:

Know which parts of their infrastructure are healthy and which are not

AppFormix provides real-time monitoring of every aspect of the cloud stack, right down to the processor level. This includes visibility into every virtual and physical resource at your disposal. The user-friendly interface and customizable dashboard provide a comprehensive list of metrics based on industry best practices. SLAs are completely configurable.

Empower developers with visibility and control

AppFormix offers a dashboard that operators can share with developers via a self-service user experience. Developers then have access to process-level monitoring, with real-time and historical views of their resources and the ability to drill down to deeper and deeper levels of specificity about performance. Both operators and developers can create project-level reports with a click; the report content and the recipients are customizable, and data can be exported in any format. In addition, operators and developers have access to advanced alarming and notification capabilities and can establish static and dynamic thresholds based on their preferences.

Make well-informed capacity decisions

With AppFormix, operators know the true capacity levels of their infrastructure, any time and all the time. AppFormix also enables operators to model potential changes to see what impacts will be on capacity, availability and performance.

If this sounds great on a theoretical level, below are some “real-life” examples of what a DevOps-ready private cloud can do.

  1. Troubleshoot when a user is experiencing slowness;
  2. Real-time notification of events;
  3. Maximize infrastructure ROI using utilization reports;
  4. Determine if there is capacity for a new or expanding project;
  5. Improve availability with configurable policy for SLA.

Is it opposite day? Microsoft has a new Linux distro

But hold your horses — Azure Cloud Switch is a custom version of Linux designed for running switches in Microsoft’s own data center

It’s happened at last: Microsoft has its own version of Linux. But don’t expect to download an .ISO just yet. It isn’t publicly available — it’s an internal project developed to help run Microsoft networks such as Azure.

Microsoft’s Azure Cloud Switch (ACS) is not a Linux distribution on the order of Red Hat’s or Ubuntu’s; rather it’s closer to Cumulus Linux. ACS was built specifically for Microsoft’s own needs, and therefore is not a definitive sign that Microsoft is becoming a Linux player.

linux-intro-100573862-primary.idge

As described in a blog post yesterday, ACS is “a cross-platform modular operating system for data center networking built on Linux.” It is intended to run on commodity ASIC hardware from multiple switch vendors and to run Microsoft’s own software for managing network devices.

While it was built with Linux and uses the Switch Abstraction Interface (SAI) specification developed under the Open Compute Project, Microsoft states that ACS was designed to integrate with Microsoft’s monitoring and diagnostics systems.

This integration “[deviates] from the traditional enterprise interactive model of command line interfaces…[but] allows for switches to be managed just as servers are with weekly software rollouts and roll backs thus ensuring a mature configuration and deployment model,” the blog says.

This also is similar to Cumulus Linux, which is devised to run switches as simply another piece of software (and hardware) to be managed with conventional enterprise tools. In Cumulus’ case, the management tools are software like Puppet or Chef; in Microsoft’s case, it’s Microsoft’s system-management technology.

For their eyes only

What will Microsoft likely do with ACS in the long term? One possibility: ACS will be offered to users as a way to build a more Azure-like environment within their data centers — much as Microsoft is planning to do with Azure Service Fabric.

The competitive edge Azure provides for Microsoft in the cloud is bound up with the likes of ACS. Still, every cloud has to keep innovating; in time, Microsoft may offer ACS freely, but probably only after the advantage it provides Azure has been superseded by other, more ambitious features.

If ACS becomes the closest thing to a Microsoft-branded Linux distribution, it will — like all the other work the company has done with Linux — be a way to better support Microsoft’s proprietary cloud efforts. Linux users will win out by having better support in Azure for their OS of choice. But Microsoft’s first duty, as always, is to Microsoft itself.

SAP’s HANA Vora Query Engine Harnesses Spark, Hadoop for Data Analysis

SAP says its new HANA Vora query engine extends the Apache Spark processing engine to provide the data analytics muscle to pull business insights from all types of big data.

290x195sap1

SAP is introducing a new in-memory query engine called HANA Vora that leverages the Apache Spark open source data processing engine and Hadoop to mine business insights from vast stores of data produced by machines, business transactions and sensors.The name Vora, short for “voracious,” according to the company, reflects the product’s ability to apply big data analytics techniques to enormous quantities of data.”HANA Vora plugs into Apache Spark to bring business data awareness, performance and real-time analytics to the enormous volumes of data that industries of all types will generate just in the next five years,” said Quentin Clark, SAP’s chief technology officer, in a video introducing Vora.Clark cited estimates that global businesses will generate 44 trillion gigabytes of data by 2020. Vora will enable enterprises to merge this vast quantity of new data with existing enterprise data sets to “make meaning out of all that data.”

SAP says its goal with HANA Vora is to relieve much of the complexity and grunt work with Spark and Hadoop to produce meaningful business insights from distributed data sets.

The trick is to put big data analytics in context with an understanding of business processes to pull business insights from the data. That is what SAP says HANA Vora will achieve.Financial services, health care, manufacturing and telecommunications are just a few of the industries where big data analytics can produce significant improvements to business processes, according to SAP.For example, Vora can be used in the telecommunications industry to relieve network congestion by analyzing traffic patterns.  It can also be used to detect anomalies in large volumes of financial transactions that indicate the possibility of fraud.The company plans to release HANA Vora to customers in late September. Also available will be a cloud-based developer edition.SAP’s introduction of Vora is an “interesting strategic and practical move that could pay dividends over time,” said Charles King, principal analyst with Pund-IT.”In essence, Vora is an in-memory query processor that can be used to speed queries of unstructured data in Hadoop/Apache Spark environments, as well as structured information in common enterprise data sources, including SAP HANA. That could be a very attractive proposition to SAP’s large enterprise customers.”The introduction of Vora is fairly timely because “Apache Spark is a very hot topic right now and other vendors, including IBM are making sizable investments” in Spark and Hadoop technology, King noted. SAP is bringing Vora to market at a time when adoption of Spark is still in its early stages and making it work with other SAP technology such as HANA, King noted.SAP also announced application development enhancements to the SAP HANA Cloud Platform that will enable enterprises to speed up the development of a variety of applicationsOne of the enhancements enables enterprises to develop applications that gather and analyze data collected from sensors and industrial control devices connected to the Internet of Things. Services available on this platform include device data connectivity, device management and data synchronization features.SAP also announced new business services running on the HANA cloud platform. These include a new SAP global tax calculation service that is going into limited trial in September. It allows companies to calculate taxes from more than 75 countries around the world.The service supports many tax functions, including withholding taxes, value-added taxes and import/export taxes. The service also keeps pace with changes in tax laws that alter tax calculations.The company also announced a public beta test program for the SAP Hybris-as-a-Service on the HANA Cloud platform. Hybris is a cloud platform for building business services of virtually any kind. The Hybris- as-a-Service platform  is open to independent software vendors, enterprise IT organizations and systems providers to build their own cloud services and market them to customers or other application developers.

RHEL is optimizing its operating systems for those who are planning to deploy containers

Red Hat has announced the release of Red Hat Enterprise Linux (RHEL) 7.2 beta. In addition to the typical updates, the release will make it easier for businesses to build and deploy Linux containers. This release also brings some refreshment to the RHEL desktop with rebasing it to GNOME 3.14 desktop and package GNOME Software.

The beta improves the platform’s underlying container support infrastructure, including OverlayFS and user namespaces. These improvements will assist customers in containerizing existing (traditional) applications and at the same time develop new applications based on amicroservices style architecture.

Security is an ongoing process

To further improve the security of RHEL, the company has introduced a new SCAP module in the installer (anaconda) that allows enterprise customers to apply SCAP-based security profiles during installation.

The beta also adds the ability to bind data to local networks, allowing enterprises “to encrypt systems at scale with centralized management,” according to the press release. “In addition, Red Hat Enterprise 7.2 beta introduces support for DNSSEC for DNS zones managed by Identity Management (IdM) as well as federated identities, a mechanism that allows users to access resources using a single set of digital credentials.”

Red Hat customers can download the beta from the download page.
