Vizuri is committed to publishing code and content that helps to advance the open source community. We are proud to share a new addition to our content library this week: 4 Recommendations for Evaluating OpenShift Consultants. 

The following is an excerpt from that free guide, now available for download:

...we suggest that you evaluate for two separate skillsets for OpenShift: infrastructure and application. Our experience has demonstrated that both are important.

Infrastructure Skillsets

Infrastructure focuses on full automation for the installation in environments such as VMWare or AWS, using Ansible and related automation tools.

Infrastructure experts tend to have the following foundational skillsets:

  • Fluency in Linux, Apache httpd, DNS, LDAP, PHP, Load Balancing, TCP/IP, Bind, and SMTP
  • Familiarity with a scripting language such as Bash, Perl, Python or Ruby
  • Experience with high availability infrastructure setups, particularly clustering and load-balanced production RHEL environments
  • Experience in virtualization technologies such as KVM, RHEV, Vmware or Xen

We recently hosted a webinar on “Managing Business Rules in a Microservices Architecture.” In case you missed it, we’ve now set up the recording to be available on-demand.

In a 45-minute presentation, our technical experts review how business rules engines fit in a microservices architecture and how to orchestrate business rules as a microservice on Red Hat's OpenShift Container Platform. We then close with a demo of an application that combines the concepts covered in the presentation.

Vizuri is committed to publishing code and content that helps to advance the open source community. We are proud to share a new addition to our content library this week: 4 Must-Know OpenShift Implementation Tips. 

The following is an excerpt from that free guide, now available for download:

 

...push for involvement and collaboration from all stakeholders. Collectively, they are your end users and have different needs and perspectives.

In a typical OpenShift implementation, your stakeholders include resources from the following teams:

  • Enterprise Architecture. This team is responsible for selecting the tools that will be used by the company.
  • Operations. This team is responsible for setting up the infrastructure needed to support the development team. They are also responsible for maintaining it once it has been set up.
  • Development. This team is responsible for developing and testing the systems that will be deployed on the infrastructure.
  • Security. This team is responsible for defining the requirements that systems and infrastructure must meet in order to be compliant.

Non-Functional Requirements for OpenShift Implementations [Free Checklist]

Posted by Nichole Bui

Aug 23, 2017 1:20:43 PM OpenShift, OpenShift Resource, OpenShift Container Platform requirements

Vizuri is committed to publishing code and content that helps to advance the open source community. We are proud to share a new addition to our content library this week: Non-Functional Requirements for OpenShift Implementations. The following is an excerpt from that free guide, now available for download:

...there is no exact level of detail required for any given requirement. However, efforts to document as much detail as possible have many benefits during implementation:

  • More detail enables better definition of system functionality, and better system definition streamlines implementation. Implementers no longer have to stop their work to seek clarification from outside sources. Instead, they need only look to the requirements specifications to determine how the environments should function.
  • Greater detail keeps analysts from having to make assumptions about a given process. These assumptions take additional time to verify, increasing the analysis effort.
  • More detail during analysis provides a solid understanding of functionality expected by both the users and the implementers. This usually leads to fewer change requests, as well as to a more comfortable relationship between the users and the implementers.

We hope the following checklist of requirements helps you to achieve a smooth and successful implementation.
