DevOps Montréal: septembre 2017

This month we have two main talk around handling high volume of data. elastic.co will be presenting their Elastic Stack followed by Donald to explain how to deal with challenge of processing high volume of data.

19:00 The Elastic Stack (from Elastic)

Description:
An in-depth discussion of the elastic.co (formerly ELK) stack featuring Elasticsearch, Kibana, Logstash, Beats, and X-Pack. We will go through each component and discuss how it can help with DevOps workloads.
By Pat Wendorf

20:00 Practical Handling for High Data Volume Processing

Description:
Let’s talk about some real world bottle necks in processing extremely high volumes (opinion) of data, and why some approaches were considered over others. The talk is aimed around how things got from A to Z, and why, using easy to implement solutions without too much complexity. No algorithms or patterns, just a casual look at some cases and how we got from a few hundred records a day to billions and the various redesigns in its evolution. No product pitch or complex topics, just showing why processing data doesn’t need to seem insurmountable.
By Donald Donovan

Presentation

Monolithic VS Microservices Cloud Architecture

Description: Not All Clouds Are Created Equal

Many older cloud applications are monolithic under the covers. Even though they can serve multiple tenants, they’re built as a large set of highly interdependent components. A failure in one component can have devastating impact on another, resulting in service outages for many or even all clients. The problems are often exacerbated by deployment in data centers with limited access to hardware. The PureCloud℠ platform takes a radically different approach. Instead of using a number of tightly coupled components, it divides its functionality into hundreds of microservices. Each microservice is stateless and independently load-balanced.

Let’s compare clouds.
A monolithic cloud architecture relies on massive amounts of interlinked software. If one piece of the software breaks, the whole application, and other applications that are interlinked, must be updated. Where as a True Cloud architecture is made of independent microservices. Updates can be made to smaller independent microservices without impacting the whole.
A monolithic cloud architecture requires complex annual upgrades. This can include massive amounts of time planning and even downtime. But with a True Cloud, you get continuous updates and innovation. New features or enhancements are rolled out consistently with little to no impact on the user.
A monolithic cloud can include multiple points of failure.
