Hey IT — embrace, don’t stifle, developers’ flight to cloud

#SuryaRay #Surya You’re stuck in bumper-to-bumper traffic. No one’s moving. It’s hot, the air conditioner is busted and next to you is a tempting escape … a wide-open breakdown lane. Sure, you could move over and jump ahead. You’d get where you wanted to go faster, but you’d be breaking the rules.

Shadow IT projects crop up in much the same way. Gridlocked by the processes and protocols imposed by IT management, developers very often give in to the temptation of moving their projects outside where they can progress faster. These “shadow IT” or “dark ops” which happen when developers go outside the firewall — spinning up and provisioning their work on beyond-the-firewall cloud resources to support time-sensitive project delivery. These efforts typically happen without the knowledge of IT (or accounting) departments.

Dark ops: a symptom of impatience, colliding objectives

Dark ops emerge when dev/devops teams hit communication breakdowns, governance constraints, and resource limitations. The whole rationale for the devops movement — in which company developers and operations people — who often work at cross purposes — are encouraged to work together to build, then deploy,  incremental software updates and improvements. It sometimes doesn’t work that way, hence the rogue developer.  sometimes that’s because IT management has implied or stated outright that it doesn’t have the time, in-house skills, resources, or desire to deal with their projects. At the same time, developers are under pressure to innovate to keep the enterprise competitive.

The public cloud breakdown lane: tempting, but risky

Look at it from the developer’s perspective. Would you jump into the dark ops breakdown lane? Cloud offerings such as Amazon’s Web Services are tempting, quick options for developers looking for bandwidth, scale, and resources, without having to go through time-consuming IT channels. But without IT’s involvement, issues abound.

For instance, think of the “success-failure” scenario: What happens if the shadow project is a successful trial, and corporate end users demand broader rollout? IT has to integrate that shadow project back into the corporate network, connecting it to legacy applications, databases, and service frameworks. Trying to do that after the project is already under way is far more difficult and resource-intensive than if IT were involved in plans from the start.

Even worse: What if the third-party service provider suffers an outage or a security breach? IT is a corporate risk manager, and determines maximum tolerable failure windows, necessary protections against data theft/loss, and how often to back up data on-site. In addition, IT constantly measures corporate cloud utilization to avoid overage costs that can get out of hand. It’s not likely that a developer would consider these critical factors when purchasing immediately available public-cloud VMs. In most organizations, the developer’s understandable lunge towards Shadow IT can expose the company to risk and unnecessary expense.

So, how do you foster developer creativity and still maintain IT control?

1. Embrace dark ops culture

Resolve the culture wars being waged by your development and IT teams. In spite of their respective biases, developers and IT management share a common goal: to do what’s right for the company. If your devs are going rogue, review your deployment administrative processes. It’s a problem if they aren’t following the rules, but it’s a much bigger problem if your rules are hindering developers’ ability to innovate. Acknowledge the developer’s lament: “Don’t make me write another report! I’d rather be coding!” Then empower them: They want to be able to provision their apps. Take advantage of virtualization technologies to enable that.

2. Invest in the cloud

Instead of imposing arcane processes on the dev team, establish new infrastructure to support the best way for them to work. If your devs want to go to the cloud, give them a cloud to go to. If you need to keep data in-house, get a private cloud and give your devs control over their own piece of the sky. Otherwise, outsource your hosting to a public-cloud provider. The important thing is that your devs can spin up VMs and not have to wait weeks for approval to do so.

On the IT side, set up management and control procedures— as non-intrusively as possible—to make dev cloud work visible. Middleware in public or private PaaS models can provide sophisticated cloud management solutions for IT without burdening devs with overhead administration.

3. Collaborate

Hold a hackathon. Bring your teams together for a day or even a week to brainstorm on new ideas, build prototypes, and learn from each other. Make multi-day quarterly hackathons open to all employees and impose just one rule: work must benefit the company. Hackathons can get your teams thinking creatively, boost morale, and make your company and products better.

4. Open up your enterprise’s breakdown lane

With mutual respect established, virtualization options made available, and team collaboration under way, you’ll see positive changes in the enterprise developer/IT relationship. That unity will lead to faster, more cost-effective, and less-risky research and development. Open communication and mutual respect will focus your team on what’s important: moving the enterprise forward. You just have to open up that extra lane to get past the traffic.

#CloudFail: Six pitfalls to avoid with enterprise cloud deployment

#SuryaRay #Surya Done right, the enterprise cloud reduces IT overhead, delivers scalability, fosters innovation, and improves the way enterprises work. And that can save time and money.

You’ve heard the cloud marketing spiel … faster, better, cheaper. Those are seductive adjectives. But for some organizations, cloud benefits like that can remain out of reach. Cloud Computing is just so…new, and as some industry experts have oh-so-astutely noted, “much can go wrong.” And that’s reason enough for many to fear cloud computing.

But it shouldn’t be enough to preclude it. Perhaps it goes without saying, but your enterprise will enjoy the cloud’s benefits only with the commitment of organizational buy-in. Will your enterprise’s cloud-computing initiatives succeed? Let’s hope so. Winning in the cloud isn’t difficult, but it’s also not guaranteed. If you’re an IT leader, avoid these rookie mistakes … or your enterprise cloud might just rain down on you.

1. Plan for yesterday

It’s classic IT short-sightedness: “Invest now and relieve your immediate pain!” But here’s the thing: Cloud computing _changes_ everything. Yesterday’s planning involved provisioning hardware for a ten-year lifespan. Today’s planning involves spinning up 10,000 VMs. Overnight. Yes, you must migrate your legacy apps to the cloud. But you also must ensure your cloud supports new, as-yet unimagined, multi-component, polyglot-developed, infinitely-modifiable, dynamically-redeployable applications. That is hardly the status quo now.

Today — yes, today –your application developers are leveraging the cloud to work in completely new ways. Cloud computing has the power to change the way your team thinks about delivering customer value. Change the way you think about IT management. Start from your end user customers and work backwards up the value chain. Then map out a cloud computing strategy to get there. You’ll end up with an IT org that’s proactively strategizing for the future instead of reacting to yesterday’s pain point.

2. Go public…if you’re big

How big is your enterprise? How costly is downtime? How much of a control freak are you? If you answered “massive,” “massively costly,” and “massively type-A,” then the public cloud probably isn’t for you. Outages—though extremely rare—can still occur. “Four nines” uptime sounds great, but it’s also unrealistic. Can your org can handle downtime if your public-cloud data is unavailable?

Public cloud is a great IT-outsourcing option…in a one-size-fits-all kind of way. And when something goes wrong in a public cloud, remember that you’ve also outsourced disaster recovery (and limited your own visibility into recovery efforts). No big deal as long as you don’t mind twiddling your thumbs while someone in hosting tech support seeks the root cause of that outage in the Eastern zone.

3. Go private…if you’re small

Private cloud is great, but it’s not right for everyone. Is your enterprise a small business? If you’re looking at a private cloud solution (even a dedicated hosted solution), expect significant upfront investment in hardware, maintenance, and IT management. Or, look at something more convenient like a cloud hosting provider service. And get to the cloud…faster, better, cheaper.

4. Don’t worry about security

Public cloud providers deliver best-in-world security. And it’s fast and easy to push data to a public cloud like AWS. Your proprietary data’s safe there. Probably. But public-cloud breaches — though extremely rare — (say it with me) can still occur. And they can be costly. (What’s your cloud data worth to you?)

“Hoping for the best” is not a sustainable strategic approach. Plan for redundancy and disaster recovery, whether your cloud is public or private. The private cloud route can be safer, but security is under your control (and as good as your own firewall). In a public cloud, consider advanced security layers—Some private PaaSes served from a public cloud can “individually wrap” your applications, so if a neighboring tenant gets hacked, your data stays protected.

5. Ignore data sovereignty

Does your enterprise have international operations? With most public cloud services, enterprise customers have little control over where their data resides. That’s a sticking point for companies doing business in jurisdictions that require corporate or public sector data to remain within a specific geography. If adhering to such data sovereignty mandates is a priority for your enterprise, consider a private cloud solution…running in your organization’s own datacenters in the appropriate subsidiaries.

6. Wait

Don’t wait and see. Cloud computing’s not a fad. It’s a game-changer. And if you’re not moving to the cloud, then you’re Goliath and your nimble competitor is David, using cloud-computing models to advantage. The sooner your enterprise gets to the cloud, the sooner you’ll realize its benefits.

Online Meetup: An Introduction to Platform-as-a-Servi­ce (PaaS) on OpenStack

Abstract

PaaS has been growing in popularity and the benefits are clear - companies can get their applications to the market faster by using it in conjunction with their IaaS. The key advantage of private PaaS is that it works with your existing infrastructure and allows IT to keep control over application management, while empowering developers to deploy applications to the cloud on their own. The result is a streamlined pipeline, greater innovation and productivity.

Join ActiveState Technology Evangelist, John Wetherill, as he explores the ins and outs of PaaS and outlines how it integrates with OpenStack. In this meetup, John will be providing a demonstration of PaaS as well as discussing the following:

• Introduction to PaaS

• The relationship between IaaS and PaaS layer

• Explanation of the PaaS architecture

• How to provisioning services such as databases, messaging systems, caching services, and filesystems

• How PaaS interacts with OpenStack

Speaker

Originally from Canada, John Wetherill spent much of his career designing and building software at a handful of startups, at Sun Microsystems, NeXT Inc., and in the smart grid and energy space. His biggest passion is for tools, languages, processs, or systems that improve developer productivity and quality of life. Without question, Stackato is one such tool and the reason why he is here. No stranger to technology evangelism, John spent several years on Sun’s Technology Evangelism Team spreading the Java Gospel across the globe and focusing on the prolific number of Java technologies. John now spends his time immersed in cloud technologies, focusing on PaaS.

We are hosting our Cloud Online Meetup on Thursday, Jan 22nd at 9.00 - 10.00 am Pacific!
