Traditionally there have been very clear battle lines drawn for application and infrastructure deployment. When you need to run a Virtual Machine, you run it on your virtualization platform (Openstack, VMWare, etc.) and when you need to run a container workload, you run it on your container platform (Kubernetes). But when you’re deploying your application, do you really care where it runs? Or do you just care that it runs somewhere?
This is where I entered this discussion and I quickly realized that in most cases, I really didn’t care. What I knew was that I needed to have the things I required to build my application or run my training. I also knew that if I could avoid having to manage multiple sets of automation — that would be an even bigger benefit. So if I could have both running within a single platform, I was absolutely on board to give it a shot.

Monitoring of application environments is very important, and there are many kinds of monitoring to consider – infrastructure capacity and availability, as well as application responsiveness and availability to name a few. This is also true in a Platform-as-a-Service (PaaS) environment, such as one running the Red Hat OpenShift Container Platform. The use of containers mean that applications can be built as an immutable image that is deployed and promoted to multiple hosting environments at a rapid pace. This makes monitoring more complex, and the need for dynamic adaptation to the running environment is key to success. But what is the best way to deploy and manage the monitoring solution itself, which in many cases is also running fully or partially within containers? This is where Infrastructure-as-Code (IaC) comes in a useful approach. First, let’s define IaC.

Change is happening and is bound to impact every one of us one way or the other. Welcome to the our brave new digital world.
Change is no longer a choice. Some enterprises have the luxury to take a structured, methodical approach for the Management of Change. This is effective and applicable in those scenarios where the change in question has been planned for the enterprise as a whole with the right resources and communication mechanisms in place.

Digital Transformation is about embracing the idea that every business is evolving into a technology business in order to compete in the digital economy. This means organizations must shift their mindset from “IT as a cost center” to “IT as an engine of innovation.” But implementing new technology is not enough – effective organizations prioritize the maturation of their people and processes to compete in the digital economy .

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.
