This week, we launched our DevOps Advisory Service; ObjectRocket unveiled a fully-managed Redis service; we heard more from Rackspace::Solve San Francisco presenters; and we got a glimpse at some coming attractions in MongoDB.

Scaling in a multi-tenant cloud environment is hard. Noisy neighbors steal CPU cycles, degrade disk I/O and increase latency. Racker Ev Kontsevoy talked in detail about these challenges in a recent blog post. Why should you spend time and resources battling these inconsistencies? Shouldn’t you expect a predictable behavior for your application when you reach certain scale? With OnMetal we remove the complexity you face in growing your infrastructure in a multi-tenant cloud. Listen to what the OnMetal team has to say about the benefits that you as a customer should expect at scale.
Managing Redis at scale is hard. And ObjectRocket by Rackspace wants to alleviate the pain and headaches developers face managing Redis NoSQL databases. Using the same principles we apply to our fully-managed MongoDB service, our ObjectRocket team now offers full automation, support and management of Redis so developers can focus on their applications and not maintaining their databases.

Making the transition to DevOps practices requires more than just a flip of a switch. It takes stakeholder buy-in and often requires cultural and business practice transformations that impact the entire organization. DevOps isn’t a product; it’s a methodology, and adoption takes preparation and planning. Many companies are eager to get started with DevOps, but are looking for guidance on how and where to begin.
