MariaDB Enterprise Released | @DevOpsSummit @MariaDB #DevOps #Containers #Microservices

Speeds deployments with Docker Containers, Chef Recipes and Cookbooks, and MaxScale event triggers

MariaDB Raises the Bar in Developer Enablement and DevOps Productivity

MariaDB has announced the Summer 2015 release of MariaDB Enterprise, which was designed to accelerate deployment of open source DBMS applications and to improve reliability and security for DevOps. The Summer 2015 release builds on MariaDB's leadership position as the new "M" in LAMP, having displaced MySQL as the default database in the Red Hat and SUSE Linux distributions. MariaDB is also included in Pivotal Cloud Foundry, Rackspace and other cloud stacks, and it is the database of choice for IBM POWER8.

MariaDB Enterprise, which is provided as a subscription, includes curated and hardened server binaries based on the open source MariaDB community server, along with a selection of tools, connectors, subscription services and customer portal to address the needs of mission-critical applications. In addition, MariaDB Enterprise offers users the option to deploy MaxScale(TM), a database-aware proxy platform that provides capabilities such as load balancing, sharding and firewall protection without the need to modify existing applications.

According to Gartner, "We find many of our clients adopting a dual-RDBMS strategy: an open-source RDBMS combined with one of the commercial DBMS engines. We also find that many clients are beginning to use OSDBMS for more applications than originally planned -- and that vendors are eager to tell us about their "expanding footprint" after their first few deployments are in place in an organization. We believe this trend will continue so that, by 2018, more than 70% of new in-house applications will be developed on an OSDBMS."(1) Gartner goes on to state, "Information leaders who opt for an open-source DBMS (OSDBMS) licensing model can benefit from much lower costs than using a commercial model, even with today's hosted cloud and database as a service (dbPaaS) offerings."

The MariaDB Enterprise Summer 2015 release includes enhancements in key areas:

Developer Enablement and DevOps Productivity

  • Tools: Docker Containers, Chef Recipes & Cookbooks
  • Ability to launch email notifications and external scripts via MaxScale event triggers
  • Hardened and curated MariaDB Enterprise server binaries

Reliability and Security

  • Client-side SSL support in MaxScale
  • Integrated failure detection and failover with MaxScale

Scalability:

  • MaxScale binlog server extended to support MariaDB 10 master and slaves

Performance:

Optimized performance binaries for MariaDB Enterprise Cluster 5.5 and 10.0 on RHEL / CentOS 6 & 7, which can increase performance by 15%

Customer experience:

  • Online subscription management through the MariaDB customer portal has been extended to allow management of all third party and notification keys through the portal.

MariaDB was recognized by Gartner October 16, 2014, when placed in the leader's quadrant of the Magic Quadrant for Operational Database Management Systems."(2)

Availability MariaDB Enterprise Summer 2015, with MaxScale, is available immediately.

The @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California - will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit Power Panel | Balancing the Three Pillars of DevOps

In this @DevOpsSummit Power Panel - moderated by Andi Mann (founder of @Sageable) - Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs; Haseeb Budhani, co-founder and CEO of Soha; and Dalibor Siroky, Director and co-founder atPlutora; discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.

Microservices & IoT Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit
Buzzword Alert: Microservices and IoT at a DevOps conference? What could possibly go wrong?

In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetić, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.

Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
SYS-CON Events announced on June 9, 2015 at the Javits Center that the 2nd "Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center, Santa Clara, CA, and the "Third Containers & Microservices Conference" will take place June 7-9, 2016, at Javits Center in New York City.

Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.

Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.

Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.

Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.

New York and Silicon Valley Sponsors and Exhibitors
During our last New York and Silicon Valley events, over 12,000 (audited) delegates registered and participated in the world's largest DevOps, Containers, and Microservices show, colocated with Cloud Expo.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
