A lot happened in the world of security and DevOps this week. Here are top posts we saw:
David Braue published an article in Computerworld on how to manage a DevOps culture within an organization. According to the piece, where developers used to manage their interactions with cloud services largely on their own through Web dashboards, DevOps tools have helped to automate this process and make it easier to track ongoing infrastructure costs in real time.
Clive Longbottom published an article in ZDNet on coping with the needs of dynamic security. The article examined how cloud platforms offer a means of maintaining cloud security. The article noted that if the data center and IT equipment are owned by the organization, then all the physical and technical security responsibilities lie on the organization’s shoulders.
After engineers, IT companies are struggling to keep up with demand for two other hard-to-fill roles: technical salespeople and IT project managers, wrote Sharon Florentine in an article published in CIO. According to the piece, DevOps engineers, mobile developers, front-end developers, security engineers and cloud architects are other positions that continue to be in huge demand.
Rachel King wrote an article in The Wall Street Journal on colocation data centers. The article noted that companies, looking to gain the best performance from the cloud, are placing a higher value on reducing the physical distance between their servers and those of their cloud providers. Colocation data centers, where their machines share space, have emerged as an important factor in enterprise cloud strategy.
