DevOps and Nutanix share a foundational purpose and birth year. In 2009, the creation of the Agile System Administration Google Group nurtured the DevOps movement, while newly incorporated Nutanix began to pioneer Hyper-Converged Infrastructure (HCI), which is on-premise agile infrastructure and management that powers private clouds. DevOps seeks to lower the barriers between application developers and infrastructure operators to deliver their work to customers. From the beginning, Nutanix HCI has been an ideal platform for DevOps.
Gene Kim has led sessions at Nutanix .NEXT user conferences and his most recent book, The Unicorn Project, has a reference to Nutanix.DEV day IoT hands-on-workshop lab. The DevOps Masterclass draws on his recent book’s topics and industry experience:
- Discussion on DevOps and Digital Transformation, including the 5 ideals:
- Locality and Simplicity
- Focus, Flow & Joy
- Improvement of Daily Work
- Psychological Safety
- Customer Focus
- Discussion on Dr. Steve Spear’s “High Velocity Edge” research on Toyota and dynamic, learning organizations applies to technology
- Discussion of fictitious Parts Unlimited case studies
- Discussion of how to nurture and protect Horizon 3 initiatives from Horizon 1
- How DevOps and Digital Transformation can change your company and how to overcome the road blocks you’ll face
In 2020, Nutanix HCI has expanded to Hybrid Cloud Infrastructure and automation, disruptively powering every type and size of organization across the globe, challenging traditional industry approaches for all workloads. DevOps has become an indisputable ingredient for digital transformation, a business requirement accelerated by the global pandemic, so the need for this Masterclass has never been greater.
