OpenShift Commons Dublin - 3 Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Cloud Data (slides)

Today, 23 June 2022, I spoke at the OpenShift Commons event in Dublin. 

It was open to all community participants: users, operators, enterprises, non-profits, educational institutions, partners, and service providers as well as other open source technology initiatives utilized under the hood or to extend the OpenShift platform.

I shared some insights into cloud, public cloud, and the way cloud data is having a huge impact on our organizations. I pointed out three aspects to show how sometimes we are missing a very crucial aspect of our usage (and the cost) of data in the cloud. It's not just about storage, but observability and some of the choices we make when collecting metrics on our cloud applications.

Below you'll find the abstract and slides I used in Dublin and I hope you enjoy them.

OpenShift Commons Dublin - 3 Pitfalls Everyone Should Avoid with Cloud Data


I've been invited to share my insights into cloud data at the upcoming OpenShift Commons event in Dublin, Ireland.

On Thursday, 23 June 2022 I'll be on stage with other community members and customers sharing their stories as they work with OpenShift and other cloud technologies. OpenShift Commons is open to all community participants: users, operators, enterprises, non-profits, educational institutions, partners, and service providers as well as other open source technology initiatives utilized under the hood or to extend the OpenShift platform.

It's a great place to find your community:

  • If you are an OpenShift Online or an OpenShift Enterprise customer or have deployed OpenShift on-premise or on a public cloud.
  • If you have contributed to the OpenShift Origin project and want to connect with your peers and end-users.
  • If you simply want to stay up-to-date on the roadmap and best practices for using, deploying, and operating OpenShift.

Now about that talk I'm going to share with you...

Portfolio Architecture Examples - Application Development Collection

 

Figure 1: The portfolio architecture process
For a few years now we've been working on a project we have named Portfolio Architectures. These are based on selecting a specific use case we are seeing used in the real world by customers and then finding implementations of that case using three or more products from the Red Hat portfolio.

This basic premise is used as the foundation, but many aspects of open source are included in both the process and the final product we have defined. There is a community, where we share the initial project kickoff with a group of architects and use their initial feedback from the start. We also present the architecture product we've created right at the end before we publish to ensure usability by architects in the field. The final publish product includes some internal only content around the customer projects researched, but most of the content is open and freely available through various open source channels. 

This article is sharing an overview of the product we've developed, what's available to you today in our architecture center, and concludes by sharing a collection of architectures we've published.
