JAX 2014 - The PaaS to a better IT architecture.

  1. 1. The PaaS to a better IT architecture V2 Sebastian Faulhaber Solution Architect @ Red Hat
  2. 2. Who knows this?
  3. 3. Today's challenge
  4. 4. Traditional approach: handcrafted automation silos Network OS Middleware ... Source:
  5. 5. You need to be a manufacturer to win the game!
  6. 6. How to Build an App: 1. Have Idea 2. Get Budget 3. Code 4. Test 5. Launch 6. Automatically Scale Virtualized How to Build an App: 1. Have Idea 2. Get Budget 3. Submit VM Request request 4. Wait 5. Deploy framework/appserver 6. Deploy testing tools 7. Code 8. Test 9. Configure Prod VMs 10.Push to Prod 11. Launch 12.Request VMs to meet demand 13.Wait 14.Deploy app to new VMs 15.Etc. Physical How to Build an App: 1. Have Idea 2. Get Budget 3. Submit hardware acquisition request 4. Wait 5. Get Hardware 6. Rack and Stack Hardware 7. Install Operating System 8. Install Operating System Patches 9. Create user Accounts 10.Deploy framework/appserver 11.Deploy testing tools 12.Code 13.Test 14.Buy and configure Prod servers 15.Push to Prod • Launch 1. Order more servers to meet demand 2. Wait… 3. Deploy new servers 4. Etc. “The use of Platform-as-a-Service technologies will enable IT organizations to become more agile and more responsive to the business needs.” –Gartner*
  7. 7. IT Manufacturing means...
  8. 8. PaaS is a perfect fit!
  10. 10. STANDARD PARTS. STANDARD PROCESS. STANDARD INFRASTRUCTURE. BUILD FOR CHANGE. Eliminate redundancy. Encourage flexibility. Drive modularity. Maven (Builds) Apache Jenkins (CI) (HTTP) Code JBoss Git Repo MySQL
  11. 11. STANDARD PARTS. STANDARD PROCESS. STANDARD INFRASTRUCTURE. BUILD FOR CHANGE. Process drives tools. Not the other way around. Runs on RHEL on Any Infrastructure RHEL RHEL RHEL Public / Hybrid / Private / Virtualization / Bare Metal Willow Run
  12. 12. STANDARD PARTS. STANDARD PROCESS. STANDARD INFRASTRUCTURE. BUILD FOR CHANGE. Turn craftwork into commodities. Design for improvement, not function.
  13. 13. PaaS needs to become Service Oriented Infrastructure The world is changing from Client-Server to Mobile-Cloud … Is your Infrastructure able to handle that?
  14. 14. But does that really taste well?
  15. 15. We Want Composition?
  16. 16. We want Portability • JVM • Virtualization • Mobile Numbers • Laptops • iCloud • Cloud Services portable Able to be easily carried or moved, especially because being of a lighter and smaller version than usual: a portable television
  17. 17. Software Vendors react • Lightweight App Server • Lightweight Web Frameworks • Micro Services • Dynamic Endpoints • Etc.
  18. 18. Source: IT needs to be versatile
  19. 19. Something new on the Horizon Source:
  20. 20. Containers Source:
  21. 21. Traditional Enterprise OS • Single Userspace Runtime • Environment and Lifecycle defined by Host OS • Trend to isolate Appls on HW Level • Managed by IT (Limited Delegation) • Very Limited Flexibility
  22. 22. Virtualization and IaaS • Application Isolation per VM • Application and Runtime abstracted from Hardware • Complex Multi-Level Management of Host and VM Layers
  23. 23. App Delivery using Containers • Application packaged with individual Runtime Stacks • Multi-Instance, Multi- Version, Maximal Flexibility • Provides Shared Services to be be re-used inside containers • Clustering, Orchestration
  24. 24. Containers vs. Virtualization • Not either one or other • Virtualization: Vertical Abstraction • Containers: Horizontal Segmentation • Horizontal Application Isolation • Lightweight Delegation • Application Virtualization • Density
  25. 25. Layering • Images can be layered • Layering Model supports Specialization • Base Image / Core Build • Add Consumable Services on Top
  26. 26. Sharing and Self-Service • Images are pushed to a central Registry • Can be pulled by any developer • Any Environment, Any Application Version, Runs Anywhere
  27. 27. Still isolated on the Host • Applications • can be Linked • can talk to each other • What about scalability? • What about Portability? Source:
  28. 28. GearD - The Director
  29. 29. Automatic Container Image Creation
  30. 30. Elastic Wiring Across Host Boundaries
  31. 31. The Developer is King. So is the Sysadmin.
  32. 32. View from 100 feet
  33. 33. Use Case „Bank in a box“ App Server Self Service Provisioning GOALS Provision complex environments in minutes Easy scaling of developer teams public class BamAdapter { private static final Logger logger = Logger.getLogger(BamAdapte r.class.getName()); public static final String STATE_AKTIV = "Aktiv"; public static final String STATE_ABGESCHLOSSEN = "Abgeschlossen"; Config Postgres Testdata
  34. 34. Use Case „Continous Delivery“ GOALS Optimize operational efficiency Increase deployments by a factor of x6
  35. 35. PaaS enables Dev and Ops to focus on what they’re good in. Code Deploy Run Save Time and Money Code your app Push-button Deploy, and your App is running in the Cloud!
