Red Hat Training and Certification is extending the period for which many Red Hat certifications will be considered current.
At the Red Hat Open Innovation Labs, we’re excited about the theme for this year’s Red Hat Summit, the Power of the Individual. It’s a theme that drives us on the Labs team every day as we execute on our mission to accelerate the delivery of our customer’s innovative ideas. A key element of our success to date has been to build and maintain a DevOps culture, which is why we’re presenting a session at Red Hat Summit called “The Open Innovation Labs DevOps Experience.” We’ll discuss the key behaviors and processes we’ve put into place, how we’re using tools like Ansible and OpenShift, and ultimately how this leads to an immersive experience we can offer to your team.
CI/CD pipelines have become increasingly prevalent as a way way to approach software promotion workflows, because of their promise of full automation. The desired outcome of a well designed CI/CD pipeline is confidence in the software delivery process so that releases can be done at any time. And in fact a deployment in production becomes a non-event.
Today, most organizations have significant internal datasets and digital services. These resources have the potential to be converted into new revenue streams by securely exposing them to customers and partners as web services. The availability of a number of open source web service frameworks, has meant that it has never been easier to develop RESTful APIs and expose these resources to customers. This allows organizations to validate an idea or hypothesis and capture customer feedback in a matter of weeks or possibly even days.
I have recently worked on an interesting use case to integrate JDV with a SOAP Webservice which exposes WS-Addressing behavior via SOAP headers and requires a 2-way SSL. The use case stems from some strict regulations in the host country which prevent direct access to data sensitive systems and any access has to be via a web service, authenticated and encrypted. The following example showcases the configurations required and can be found in github. Installation Guide – Red Hat Customer Portal
Congrats to Ansible! Within the last month, Ansible turned 5 years old, but that didn’t stop them from being recognized as the 2016 Open Source Rookie of the Year for their new open source project around containers.
