We are honored to share that the DevOps team at Flux7 was named to the CRN Magazine 2018 Next-Gen 250 list for the second consecutive year. In case you are unfamiliar, this annual list identifies IT solution providers who have embraced emerging technologies and are setting the pace for the rest of the channel in their adoption. Those on the list have been identified by experts at The Channel Company as meeting their customers’ ever-changing IT needs in areas such as cloud based technologies, IoT, virtualization, mobility, business analytics and business intelligence.
At Flux7, we have extensive experience as a DevOps sherpa to organizations and in the process have learned a lot, including creating a DevOps model for success -- called the Enterprise DevOps Framework, or EDF -- a key element of which is the Landing Zone.
With half of enterprises reporting that they have implemented and are looking to expand DevOps within the enterprise--according to Forrester Research’s Global DevOps Benchmark--it’s important to follow those steps sure to lead to success. We’ve been sharing details behind a proven seven step process, and today we’ll highlight how an organization which has set the foundation for transformation operates in the world of DevOps at scale.
Flux7 never set out to be a traditional company. From its inception, founders Aater Suleman and Ali Hussain knew they wanted to place a priority on corporate culture. Their goal: to create an environment where innovation, transparency, and humbleness would be key drivers in how everyone went about their work, regardless of role. Five years later, corporate culture remains a driving force at Flux7, and the company focuses on reinforcing these values with each new hire.
Moving to DevOps can be difficult and every organization faces its own particular set of challenges. Join us in Dallas, TX on Tuesday, November 6th as top DevOps experts from AWS, New Relic, and Flux7 present a free, half-day workshop on proven and practical steps you can take today to accelerate your DevOps transformation.
We recently had the opportunity to work with a global communications company that shapes how consumers, businesses, governments and militaries around the world communicate. As part of our work with them, we were establishing a new AWS Disaster Recovery (DR) process, part of which had a Jenkins backup in another AWS Availability Zone (AZ). In helping the firm with its cross-AZ DR process, we were challenged with the Jenkins job status which impacted the AZ status. AWS Disaster Recovery blog is the story of how we approached the situation, creating a unique solution that solved the customer’s needs all in one place.
We kick off this week’s IT Modernization and DevOps News with Puppet who held its global conference, Puppetize Live, this past week.
