We welcome you to join us as we do just that in our last webinar to close out the year. In this special edition of PagerDuty Pulse, we’ll be recapping top product innovations we released in 2017, and share live demos and best practices on how to get the most out of your PagerDuty environment for 2018.

Here’s a sneak preview of what we’ll be covering. By bolstering your operations in the following areas, you’ll be empowered to focus on what matters, and improve both service quality and the health and happiness of your teams.

Turn Chaotic Data into Insights and Automation

David Shackelford, who heads up our Event Intelligence team, will be sharing actionable ways to surface the right machine and human context when it matters most. With practical machine learning-based methods, he’ll demonstrate how to improve signal:noise so you have all the right data at your fingertips when an urgent issue strikes, but are sleeping through the night otherwise.

Learn how you can centralize, manage, and automate event behavior at scale to extract signal from the noise using:

  • Automated alert grouping
  • Similar incidents
  • Event routing

Do Major Incident Response the Right Way

Paul Rechsteiner, who leads Incident Response discovery and tooling, will share what top operations teams do when they mobilize during critical, customer-impacting incidents. By adopting best practice approaches to assess, resolve, and learn from issues, you’ll turn wasted time and anxiety-ridden chaos into automation and efficient cross-functional coordination when it matters most.

Leverage the best-in-class, end-to-end incident lifecycle for effective, automated response to the most critical incidents with:

  • Incident priority
  • Response plays & stakeholder engagement
  • Postmortems
  • ITSM integrations

Create Real-Time Workflows Across Any Tool

You’ll also learn about powerful new APIs as well as best-in-class integrations to chat and collaboration solutions. With new extensibility tools, you can customize the ideal toolchain, automate tasks and execute custom logic outside of PagerDuty (such as troubleshooting actions during incidents), and democratize access to real-time data that is necessary during real-time response.

Count on best-in-class API support to automate tasks and customize your ideal workflow:

  • Events API v2
  • New API endpoints
  • ChatOps integrations

We look forward to sharing all of this with you and more in PagerDuty Pulse next week. Click below to register and let us help you supercharge your operations for the new year.

The benefits of automated cloud deployments for speed, reliability and security are undeniable. The cornerstone of this approach, immutable deployment, promotes the idea of continuously rolling safe, stable images instead of trying to keep up with managing a fixed pool of virtual or physical machines. In this talk, we'll explore the immutable infrastructure pattern and how to use continuous deployment and continuous integration (CI/CD) process to build and manage server images for any platform....
AI and machine learning disruption for Enterprises started happening in the areas such as IT operations management (ITOPs) and Cloud management and SaaS apps. In 2019 CIOs will see disruptive solutions for Cloud & Devops, AI/ML driven IT Ops and Cloud Ops. Customers want AI-driven multi-cloud operations for monitoring, detection, prevention of disruptions. Disruptions cause revenue loss, unhappy users, impacts brand reputation etc.

Containers and Kubernetes allow for code portability across on-premise VMs, bare metal, or multiple cloud provider environments. Yet, despite this portability promise, developers may include configuration and application definitions that constrain or even eliminate application portability. In this session we'll describe best practices for "configuration as code" in a Kubernetes environment. We will demonstrate how a properly constructed containerized app can be deployed to both Amazon and Azure ...
Enterprises are adopting Kubernetes to accelerate the development and the delivery of cloud-native applications. However, sharing a Kubernetes cluster between members of the same team can be challenging. And, sharing clusters across multiple teams is even harder. Kubernetes offers several constructs to help implement segmentation and isolation. However, these primitives can be complex to understand and apply. As a result, it’s becoming common for enterprises to end up with several clusters. This...
Is advanced scheduling in Kubernetes achievable?Yes, however, how do you properly accommodate every real-life scenario that a Kubernetes user might encounter? How do you leverage advanced scheduling techniques to shape and describe each scenario in easy-to-use rules and configurations? In his session at @DevOpsSummit at 21st Cloud Expo, Oleg Chunikhin, CTO at Kublr, answered these questions and demonstrated techniques for implementing advanced scheduling. For example, using spot instances and co...
At CloudEXPO Silicon Valley, June 24-26, 2019, Digital Transformation (DX) is a major focus with expanded DevOpsSUMMIT and FinTechEXPO programs within the DXWorldEXPO agenda. Successful transformation requires a laser focus on being data-driven and on using all the tools available that enable transformation if they plan to survive over the long term. A total of 88% of Fortune 500 companies from a generation ago are now out of business. Only 12% still survive. Similar percentages are found throug...
Public clouds dominate IT conversations but the next phase of cloud evolutions are "multi" hybrid cloud environments. The winners in the cloud services industry will be those organizations that understand how to leverage these technologies as complete service solutions for specific customer verticals. In turn, both business and IT actors throughout the enterprise will need to increase their engagement with multi-cloud deployments today while planning a technology strategy that will constitute a ...
GCP Marketplace is based on a multi-cloud and hybrid-first philosophy, focused on giving Google Cloud partners and enterprise customers flexibility without lock-in. It also helps customers innovate by easily adopting new technologies from ISV partners, such as commercial Kubernetes applications, and allows companies to oversee the full lifecycle of a solution, from discovery through management.
Using serverless computing has a number of obvious benefits over traditional application infrastructure - you pay only for what you use, scale up or down immediately to match supply with demand, and avoid operating any server infrastructure at all. However, implementing maintainable and scalable applications using serverless computing services like AWS Lambda poses a number of challenges. The absence of long-lived, user-managed servers means that states cannot be maintained by the service. Lo...
Today most companies are adopting or evaluating container technology - Docker in particular - to speed up application deployment, drive down cost, ease management and make application delivery more flexible overall. As with most new architectures, this dream takes significant work to become a reality. Even when you do get your application componentized enough and packaged properly, there are still challenges for DevOps teams to making the shift to continuous delivery and achieving that reducti...

Signs of a shift in the usage of public clouds are everywhere. Previously, as organizations outgrew old IT methods, the natural answer was to try the public cloud approach; however, the public platform alone is not a complete solution. Complaints include unpredictable/escalating costs and mounting security concerns in the public cloud. Ultimately, public cloud adoption can ultimately mean a shift of IT pains instead of a resolution. That's why the move to hybrid, custom, and multi-cloud will ...
Docker and Kubernetes are key elements of modern cloud native deployment automations. After building your microservices, common practice is to create docker images and create YAML files to automate the deployment with Docker and Kubernetes. Writing these YAMLs, Dockerfile descriptors are really painful and error prone.Ballerina is a new cloud-native programing language which understands the architecture around it - the compiler is environment aware of microservices directly deployable into infra...
