Puppet Labs 2013 State of DevOps Survey Report is out!

Puppet Labs surveyed over 4000 IT Operations and Development professionals and found that DevOps adoption is accelerating across organizations of all sizes. Organizations that have implemented DevOps practices are up to five times more likely to be high-performing than those that have not, and the more mature the DevOps implementation, the better their performance.

Lack of Black Friday Website Outages Sign of Middle Age? – 2012 Recap

Could a lack of Black Friday website outages in 2012 indicate a middle age for e-commerce? At this point during the holiday season of Black Friday 2012 and Cyber Monday 2012 online retail websites are more stable, but slower, and have increased in size, according to our monitoring and data we’ve seen. Moreover, these same websites are increasingly composed of a family of third-party hosted elements, that are “cooler” but are often less stable than the website itself. While 2012 didn’t see Black Friday website outages in the manner of 2011, there is an apparent e-commerce shift, perhaps indicative of a middle age.

And lets dream a little here…won’t it be cool if a website monitoring service took a video of the error and you could play it back so you could see what your user’s experienced? Website monitoring with video capture of downtime errors…so 2013 sounding, isn’t it? Or is it?
