Session 1: Enterprise Software Needs a PAAS
Speaker: Hugues Malphettes, DevOps at Intalio
This presentation makes a case for adopting a PaaS to deliver Enterprise Software for the Cloud.
"Intalio's product 'Create' is made for the cloud."
That statement from the marketing department used to make our engineers nervous:
What cloud: public, private? How do we scale? How do we run the infrastructure?
Now business is troubled too: software engineers are supposed to develop features for the end-user; not invent an infrastructure and how to manage it.
Intalio adopted a PaaS to tackle these challenges: Cloud Foundry.
We will present Intalio's progression from IaaS to a PaaS.
We will discuss some architectural payoffs and constraints once on a PaaS.
We will look at what DevOps and NoOps mean with a PaaS and demo it.
Session 2: A build monkey's apology
Speaker: Scott Robinson, ThoughtWorks
How many components are there in that software service you're working on every day?
1? An application server?
2? A database?
3? 4? Reverse-proxies? Query caches? Hot standbys?
What about in UAT?
In the test environment? In the test environments?!
Continuous integration? Build agents? Artifact repositories? Source control? Bug tracker? Backups?!
I know what happens when the customer's toys crash. It gets fixed. Fast.
But, what about the other parts?
