NodeSummit Here We Come

#NodeSummit #devops #nodejs #F5 #LineRate

The last time F5 had a presence at a #devops conference (Glue) we heard the same question multiple node-summit-sanfranciscotimes. "What is F5 doing here?" It was a good question, one we couldn't necessarily answer directly because, well, we weren't ready to answer. But this time, when you ask "What is F5 doing at Node Summit?" we're not only ready to answer that question, we're excited to answer it.

Node Summit is a relatively new gathering of business leaders and technology experts coming together to discuss and present on the transformative role of Node.js in computing.

And in the network. 

If you've been following along (and you probably haven't but that's okay) F5 has always been a pioneer in the realm of programmability in the network. We've always been convinced that it is far better to put the power of programmability in the hands of the folks who know their applications and architectures best than it is to try to build a one size fits all solution. Programmability, as promised by SDN and other emerging technologies, ensures the ability to innovate and mitigate on your own schedule, not ours.

We're bringing that attitude to Node Summit with something new, something that puts the power of programmability in the network in a new way. And yes, you guessed it, it involves node.js.

F5-bw So if you're going to be at Node Summit, you'll want to check out one of our sessions and learn more. If you aren't going to be in San Francisco, you can follow along on Twitter (#nodesummit)  and check this space next week for a more formal answer to the question "What is F5 doing at Node Summit?"

  • 3:15 PM – F5 Networks Sponsor Workshop: Using Node.js in the network data path to enable DevOps – Robertson Auditorium
    DevOps can now combine the power of Node.js together with the network without managing a custom proxy. Instead DevOps can focus on writing code. We demonstrate cases such as A/B testing, sideband database queries and more using Node in combination with a high performance, highly available, easy-to-manage network proxy.
    SPEAKERS:
    David Adrian, LineRate Systems Engineer, F5
    Nojan Moshiri, LineRate Product Manager, F5

  • 12:05 PM - NodeTalk: Embedding Node.js into a High-performance Network Datapath

    LineRate (now part of F5 Networks) provides a high-performance Layer 7 software network appliance that is fully programmable via Node.js embedded into its datapath. This talk will show how embedding Node.js in this way makes it easy to build complex network services, such as A/B testing, replication of production traffic to staging, XML gateways and API gateways. The talk will also discuss the challenges faced and solutions developed to embed Node.js into a pre-existing sizable C++ datapath.

    SPEAKER

    Manish Vachharajani Senior Architect, F5 Networks 

  • 2:30 PM - Node.js in the Enterprise

    Hear a wide range of experts discuss how and why Enterprises are opening up to Node.js.

Cloud computing delivers on-demand resources that provide businesses with flexibility and cost-savings. The challenge in moving workloads to the cloud has been the cost and complexity of ensuring the initial and ongoing security and regulatory (PCI, HIPAA, FFIEC) compliance across private and public clouds. Manual security compliance is slow, prone to human error, and represents over 50% of the cost of managing cloud applications. Determining how to automate cloud security compliance is critical...
Enterprises have taken advantage of IoT to achieve important revenue and cost advantages. What is less apparent is how incumbent enterprises operating at scale have, following success with IoT, built analytic, operations management and software development capabilities - ranging from autonomous vehicles to manageable robotics installations. They have embraced these capabilities as if they were Silicon Valley startups.
"MobiDev is a Ukraine-based software development company. We do mobile development, and we're specialists in that. But we do full stack software development for entrepreneurs, for emerging companies, and for enterprise ventures," explained Alan Winters, U.S. Head of Business Development at MobiDev, in this SYS-CON.tv interview at 20th Cloud Expo, held June 6-8, 2017, at the Javits Center in New York City, NY.
Recently, REAN Cloud built a digital concierge for a North Carolina hospital that had observed that most patient call button questions were repetitive. In addition, the paper-based process used to measure patient health metrics was laborious, not in real-time and sometimes error-prone. In their session at 21st Cloud Expo, Sean Finnerty, Executive Director, Practice Lead, Health Care & Life Science at REAN Cloud, and Dr. S.P.T. Krishnan, Principal Architect at REAN Cloud, discussed how they built...
When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...

Machine learning has taken residence at our cities' cores and now we can finally have "smart cities." Cities are a collection of buildings made to provide the structure and safety necessary for people to function, create and survive. Buildings are a pool of ever-changing performance data from large automated systems such as heating and cooling to the people that live and work within them. Through machine learning, buildings can optimize performance, reduce costs, and improve occupant comfort by ...
