“I’m going to take you out to the edge to show you what the future looks like.” So begins a16z partner Peter Levine as he takes us on a “crazy” tour of the history and future of cloud computing — from the constant turns between centralized to distributed computing, and even to his “Forrest Gump rule” of investing in these shifts.

But… how can we say cloud computing is coming to an “end” when it hasn’t even really started yet?? Because the edge — where self-driving cars and drones are really data centers with wheels or wings — is where it’s at. So where does machine learning in the enterprise come in? How does this change IT? As software programs the world, these are some of the shifts to look at…

Nutanix 官方Blog的新版本发布帖 The 5.0 Release is Here

Nutanix AOS 5.0 is available now for you to download and will carry a huge payload of innovation across Acropolis – the data plane, Prism – the management plane and AHV – built-in hypervisor. Over the last couple of months we have spoken about different capabilities that will be part of this release. Before we get into details of the release, it is important to take a step back and understand how the core platform is evolving.

  • These services are announced but will be generally available in a subsequent product release

To deliver on the vision of Enterprise Cloud and offer public cloud-like services within the datacenter, it is important for us to provide infrastructure services similar to what the public cloud offers. Different workloads have different infrastructure needs and it is important to provide services that can be “turned-on” and “turned-off” based on applications needs – all without having to touch the underlying physical infrastructure. This is exactly what AWS does and that is what we are working towards with our Enterprise Cloud Platform as well.

Here is a comparison of some of these infrastructure services offered by AWS and Nutanix. The core tenets of the public cloud and the pay-as-you-grow economics are as applicable to Nutanix as it is to the public cloud.

The 5.0 release adds new infrastructure services to the platform and enhances the ones that already exist; delivering greater flexibility and potential cost savings for IT organizations of all sizes. With over 45 new capabilities in the software and hundreds of feature enhancements, this release is definitely a huge milestone for us.

While it is impossible for us to cover all the capabilities in detail in one single blog, let me attempt to do a quick walk through of the ones we think you will love!

Acropolis – Data Plane Enhancements

Acropolis File Services (AFS)Generally Available: AFS is a natively built file storage service that eliminates the need for standalone NAS solutions. This capability was in Tech Preview for the past several months and is generally available with the 5.0 release. With AFS, customers can consolidate their virtual machines and the file data they rely on within the same cluster. AFS will work on ESXi and AHV hypervisors for a wide variety of use cases such as user-profiles, home directories, archives and more. You can learn more about this capability in this blog. Here is a quick summary blog on AFS.

Acropolis Block Services (ABS) Enhancements: ABS, like AFS, is natively built to expose storage to non-virtualized workloads. This capability was introduced in the 4.7 release. We have significantly enhanced ABS in 5.0 with support for dynamic load balancing and flash pinning for better performance, improved security through CHAP for safer client-server conversations and online resizing for higher availability. Additionally, Oracle joins the list of certified workloads on ABS. Here is a quick summary blog on ABS.

Metro Availability Witness: Metro Availability is Nutanix’s synchronous replication solution for DR. Metro Availability Witness is a light-weight service that will be able to run anywhere to enable automatic failover from one site to another without service disruption by monitoring the status of both sites.

Compression Enhancements: The compression algorithm used for capacity optimization has significantly improved in the 5.0 release resulting in more efficient data compression. Additionally, on All-flash systems, compression will be turned on by default. With compression, deduplication, erasure coding and other native capacity optimization capabilities, customers can achieve up to 4:1 savings (depending on data type).

Single-node Replication Target: One of the common asks from Remote and Branch office/SMB customers was to have a single-node backup/replication target for smaller deployments of Nutanix. This enables customers to use native backup capabilities and replicate data to a storage heavy node of Nutanix that can be on the same site or a different remote site. With 5.0, this is possible with the single Nutanix node having ~40TB of raw capacity and act as a destination for backup/snapshot data.

AHV – Hypervisor Enhancements

AHV, the native hypervisor solution from Nutanix, continues to grow leaps and bounds with several customers standardizing on AHV for all workloads. We have continued to add newer capabilities with every release of the product. 5.0 is no different and adds a couple of very important capabilities.

New AHV capabilities over the last few releases

AHV Adoption over the last several quarters

AHV Affinity Rules: Workloads such as Microsoft SQL or Oracle are often attached to a specific node for licensing, security or HW configuration related reasons. With affinity rules, virtual machines can now be “pinned” to a specific host or a set of hosts. Additionally AHV will also support VM VM anti-affinity rules to try ensure that specific VMs are never on the same host together.

Acropolis Dynamic Scheduling (ADS): AHV has supported intelligent initial placement for a while now to make sure VMs are placed on the most optimal hosts when they are initially deployed. With ADS, the hypervisor can detect CPU, memory and storage controller hotspots and can move deployed VMs to a host that is ideal suited. Legacy hypervisor solutions factor in CPU and memory alone while making similar decisions. But with AHV, the VM placement algorithms will also factor in storage resources as well as storage controller bottlenecks before making a decision.

CPU/Memory Hot Add: With this capability, administrators can add vCPU and memory to a running VM without any service impact. As applications evolve, it is important to dynamically adjust resources assigned to them so that there is no performance impact for the end user. This is what the hot add feature will enable. In the 5.0 release, this feature will be available in Tech preview and is expected to be generally available in a subsequent release.

With these capabilities, AHV is ready for all your production workloads and there is very little reason as to why any virtualized workload cannot be run on Nutanix and on AHV. Nutanix customers are already standardizing on AHV and are seeing significant savings in the overall cost of ownership across their entire infrastructure stack.

Prism – Management Plane Enhancements

Over the last year Prism has evolved into a product suite of its own – with Prism Starter and Prism Pro, customers now have an option of choosing a one-click infrastructure management solution or a one-click infra management and operations management solution based on their needs.

5.0 brings enhancements to both Prism Starter and Prism Pro.

Prism Self-Service: Self-service will bring the goodness of AWS to enterprise datacenters. With this new capability, end-users can login to Prism with their own AD credentials and deploy and monitor applications whenever they want, based on Admin set policies. This removes common friction around developers and end users having to rely on IT admins for common tasks. Instead, administrators just assign resources for specific users or AD groups and end users have complete independence to perform actions that he/she is allowed to do. Here is a quick blog that summarizes this capability.

Network Visualization: This is another key capability that is part of Prism. With Network Visualization, administrators will be able to get an end-to-end operational view of the infrastructure all the way down to the networking layer. With views that provide insight into how virtual machines are connected to the host, NICs, the top of rack switches, the VLANs they are part of as well as the health of these connections, administrators will be able to get all the information they want about their infrastructure in a single screen, without having to rely on separate tools. This will help isolating and fixing common networking issues that result in application downtimes.

ESXi Management: The simplicity of VM management with Prism will extend to ESXi as well with this release – common VM operations that customers relied on vCenter for will be performed from within Prism. One of the common asks from customers was to not go back and forth to vCenter and instead consolidate all operations on Prism. In the first release as part of 5.0, Prism will enable administrators to perform common VM operations such as VM create, update, delete, clone etc. from within Prism. Combining VM operations and the rich monitoring and analytics, vCenter is only needed for less common maintenance and configuration tasks. With the hypervisor becoming commodity, end users get greater simplicity at the management layer.

Just-in-time Capacity Forecasting (available in Prism Pro): This is probably one of the most important additions to Prism. Just-in-time forecasting will enable IT to stay ahead of the game by modeling and understanding infrastructure needs based on application requirements even before applications are deployed. This way, IT not only understands application-centric capacity usage patterns and what can be done to optimize existing capacity, they can also plan their infrastructure needs for the future and deploy infrastructure if and only when they need them at “byte” sized granularity all based on recommendations from Prism.

Search Enhancements (Available in Prism Pro): One of the core aspects to delivering a personalized and consumer-grade management experience is to enable administrators to perform actions the same way they would do it in their personal lives. Prism Search, a Google like search engine, was introduced earlier this year so that administrators can perform all administrative actions through a simple search query. With support for Boolean expressions, saved searches, auto correct, synonyms based search and more, the 5.0 release will take Prism Search to a whole new level. As an example, administrators can type in “vm iops <1500” and quickly see all the VMs across all the sites that have IOPS less than 1500.


来自于《DevOps Handbook》的书单

本清单来自于《DevOps Handbook》书中提到的书,更新到第五本;《看板方法》、《精益思想》、《Implementing Lean Software Development: From Concept to Cash》、《第五项修炼:学习型组织的艺术与实践》、《探索吧!深入理解探索式软件测试》




今天要介紹看板方法的由來, 上面這本書是由看板方法之父 David J. Anderson 於: 2010年 4月所著。簡字版是 2014 年2月出版。這篇文章在我上 TechDays 課程時就想登出來了,想把好書介紹給大家。但由於台灣的書商都沒有進口,所以一直等到我拿到第一批書後,肯定大家可以在坊間買到書時才把他登出來。原文書名: Kanban: Successful Evolutionary Change for Your Technology Business.

看板方法:它是敏捷陣營中實施起來阻力最小,生產力又能大幅提升、前置時間大幅下降,而可預測性又絕佳的敏捷解決方案之一。好神奇喔 … 哈哈! 確實如此,所以我才會這麼急切的推薦給大家。另一個原因是Kanban Method 現在在美國正熱烈風行中,而我們現在開始追正是時候。為此放下了許多手上正在做的工作(包括一本 Scrum的教本),努力開始推廣希望大家能受用。首先說明: 為何他推廣起來阻力最小?

※ 實施起來阻力最小:

因為David J. Anderson 本身是一個微軟的 PM出身,他跟大家一樣知道變革會讓許多人害怕,人們會認為自己的技術是否落伍了,開始擔心害怕變革會對自己的工作事業帶來不利,這種恐懼常常會帶來一種莫名的對立,因此在還沒開始變革之前就已經採取抵制的態度了。所以他創始的看板方法選擇從哪裡開始實施呢? 就從現在既有的流程開始。由工作者本身最熟悉的地方開始。起步的秘訣是甚麼呢? 是精實精神中從豐田系統中學來的原則,先從不浪費開始,作法: 在識別浪費後消除浪費。

※ 如何能讓生產力大幅提升?

由審視既有流程,依據 Little’s law的最大產出方法,接著找出阻礙最大產能的瓶頸所在,然後正視這個造成瓶頸的問題,把它顯現在看板上面,讓大家一起站在看板前面討論如何解決它,解決之後再持續進行改善的作業。

※ 前置時間大幅下降

過去我們都以為唯有透過良好的規劃及配合才能夠讓前置作業時間下降,但豐田企業的及時(Just In Time)備料讓庫存降至最低,讓半成品減至最少改變了工作流程的前置時間(Lead time),因此得到大幅下降。

看板還是看板方法 (Kanban or Kanban Method) 英文叫 Kanban,上網去搜尋會得到一大堆有關製造業的看板資料。所以請使用 Kanban Method去搜尋,因此中文就該叫做「看板方法」。簡體版的作者有用心在翻譯因此翻對了,值得買來閱讀。全書分成四部分:

※ 第一部分;導讀: 作者說出他的想法,以及創作看板方法的原由。

※ 第二部分;談使用看板方法的好處: 這裡有他個人做顧問時的經驗談,值得仔細閱讀。

※ 第三部分;開始談實施看板方法的步驟了。(由六到十五章,好長又夠完整)

※ 第四部分;談持續改進。在這裡你終於可以感受到精實軟體開發對作者的影響,以及作者由經濟學的角度來看精實軟體開發的第一原則: 消除浪費。





《精益思想》于1996年秋季首次出版,历经20年,畅 销十多个国家,累计销量上百万册。本书的成功在于它对精益生产方式做了最 好的总结,为读者提供了精益的核心原则,实地考察了美国、德国、日本若干具有代表性的大小企业推行精益的实际情况和心得,为准备跨入精益之门和进一步学习、实施精益的人提供了最 好的指南,从而成为精益方面的经典著作。

Lean IT: Enabling and Sustaining Your Lean Transformation


This book will have a permanent place in my bookshelf. In my ten-year study of high performing IT organizations, I’ve found that businesses rely on IT far more than they think. The impacts of poor flow from application development into IT operations can be devastating: ever increasing cycle times and amounts of rework, and an ever increasing amount of heroics required in IT operations to preserve the illusion of stability and reliability. ―Gene Kim, Chief Technology Officer, Tripwire, Inc.

There has never been a more critical time to improve how IT integrates with the global business enterprise. This book provides an unprecedented look at the role that Lean will play in making this revolutionary shift and the critical steps for sustained success. ―Steve Castellanos, Lean Enterprise Director; Nike, Inc.

Twenty years from now the firms which dominate their industries will have fully embraced lean strategies throughout their IT organizations. Ten years from now those organizations will have started pulling ahead of their competitors as the result of lean IT. Today this book will show those organizations the path they need to start out on. Will your organization be one of them? ―Scott W. Ambler, Chief Methodologist for Agile and Lean, IBM Rational

… goes both wide and deep in its exploration of Lean … a great survival manual for those needing nimble and adaptive systems. ―Dr. David Labby, MD, PhD, Medical Director and Director of Clinical Support and Innovation, CareOregon

This book makes a major contribution in an often-ignored but much-needed area. It ranges over a huge area – including excellent cases – that will bring IT professionals into the Lean fold but will also enable Lean managers to reach out to IT. ―John Bicheno, Program Director MS in Lean Operations, Cardiff University

… a comprehensive view into the world of Lean IT, a must read! ―Dave Wilson, Quality Management, Oregon Health & Science University

True North: Discover Your Authentic Leadership


“With great clarity and insight, Bill George and Peter Sims make a persuasive argument that the journey toward authentic leadership—that finding and pursuing your own True North–is the key to leadership in all fields, whether in business, government, or the nonprofit arena.” —From the Foreword by David Gergen

“In True North, Bill George once again provides a roadmap for leadership in the 21st Century. The future belongs to leaders who want to win, without ever losing track of their own values.

Gemba Walks

Editorial Reviews

In 12 new essays, ranging from the provocative to the practical and written specially for the second edition of Gemba Walks author and management expert Jim Womack reflects on the past 30 years of lean, and assesses the current state of lean today. He also shares thoughts on how lean thinking and practice can continue to make the world a better place by gaining traction in areas such as government and healthcare, provides practical guidance for how leaders everywhere can realize the full benefits of a lean management system, and shares hope for continued improvement on the path to better work and more value. Over the past 30 years, Womack has developed a method of going to visit the gemba at countless companies and keenly observing how people work together to create value. He has shared his thoughts and discoveries from these visits with the lean community through a monthly letter. With Gemba Walks second edition, Womack has selected and re-organized his key letters, as well as written 12 new essays. Gemba Walks shares his insights on topics ranging from the application of specific tools, to the role of management in sustaining lean, as well as the long-term prospects for this fundamental new way of creating value. Reading this book will reveal to readers a range of lean principles, as well as the basis for the critical lean practice of: go see, ask why, and show respect. Womack explains: • whatever happened to Toyota and what happens next to lean? • how lean got its name 25 years ago; a special essay co-authored by Jim and John Krafcik, president and CEO, Hyundai Motors America • work, management, and leadership – what is the real work of the lean leader? • don’t offshore or reshore –leanshore • why companies need fewer heroes and more farmers (who work daily to improve the processes and systems needed for perfect work and who take the time and effort to produce long-term improvement) • how “good” people who work in “bad” processes become as “bad” as the process itself • how the real practice of showing respect comes down to helping workers frame and solve their own problems • how the short-term gains from lean tools can be translated to enduring change from lean management. • how the lean manager has a “restless desire to continually rethink the organization’s problems, probe their root causes, and lead experiments to test the best currently known countermeasures” By sharing his personal path of discovery, Womack sheds new light on the continued adoption and development of the most important new business system of the past fifty years. His journey will provide courage and inspiration for every lean practitioner today.

“点名、责备和羞辱”模式是Sydney Dekker博士批评的坏苹果理论的一部分,在他的书《The Field Guide to Understanding Human Error》里有深入讨论。

《Gemba Walks》的作者Jim Womack描述了领导者和前线工作者之间必须发生的互补工作关系和相互尊重。根据Womack的说法,这种关系是必要的,因为谁都无法单独解决问题 - 领导者并不会足够的贴近一线工作,这是解决任何问题所需要的,而前线工作者也没有更广的组织背景的认知或权

After the near-death experience of eBay in the late 1990s, Marty Cagan, author of Inspired: How To Create Products Customers Love, the seminal book on product design and management, codified the following lesson:

界定上下文(Bounded contexts)是Eric J.Evans在《领域驱动设计》一书中提出的概念。其思路是开发人员能够理解和更新服务的代码,而不需要知道其关联服务(peers)的内部逻辑。同时,服务间严格通过API协作,不共享数据结构、数据库Schema或内部的对象。界定上下文确保服务间职责的划分,并具有良好定义的接口,同时也提高了可测试性。
