Global adoption of the cloud is accelerating at a dizzying rate each year with businesses of all sizes realizing the cost-saving, flexibility, and scalability benefits of migrating and running applications in the cloud. In our 2019 State of Application Services report, 87% of respondents reported having multicloud architectures.
As pressure to move applications to cloud and hybrid environments intensifies, IT teams must grapple with sometimes significant migration challenges. Though each migration is different, there are several common considerations to keep in mind to help you on your own cloud journey. This guide provides a blueprint to help you think through many of the long-term impacts of your migration options and establish a strong foundation for your cloud migration strategy. The end result should be a migration strategy that leaves you in a position to support your technology as your business scales.View E-Book
By focusing on frequent code integration, automated testing, and keeping
the mainline code version in a state that is deployable to production at any
time, CI/CD aims to eliminate the risks and friction of traditional waterfall
software development. Add to that the practice of continuous deployment
and you can move to a situation where the latest and greatest software version
is not just always ready to be deployed—it’s deployed on a frequent basis. ...
Container platforms such as Kubernetes and RedHat OpenShift combine with agile development methodologies to speed up application development and deployment. By allowing developers to break applications up into smaller components (also known as microservices), containers can help reduce dependencies, allow component-level scaling, and encourage rapid release lifecycles.
However, containerized apps can still be exposed to application-layer vulnerabilities, denial-of-service attacks, and the impacts of client-side network latency. This means th ...
Speed and agility continue to be among the leading motives for enterprise cloud adoption, since slow has become unacceptable in this fast-paced world we live in. But as a DevOps practitioner tasked with accelerating app deployments while improving app performance and ensuring security, what does it take to modernize your systems and processes to overcome slow in the cloud? We have a few suggestions. ...
The network team is made up of your colleagues, your co-workers, in some cases, your friends. They deserve to know the truth. And you’re just the person to bring them that truth. The truth about how automation is going to transform (in a good way!) much of what traditional NetOps does.
Decisions around developing, testing, deploying, operating, and maintaining enterprise applications are not being made in a silo. In days past, it may have been the case that network operations personnel were the ones who were in control, who were the last sto ...

We’re talking, of course, about your relationship with your cloud provider’s native application services for security and performance. Services which are, admittedly, perfectly fine—until you realize you need more.
What are the signs that you’ve outgrown those cloud-native security and performance services?
When should you consider more robust application services?
Is it time to evolve your relationship with your native cloud services for your apps?
