I've started scripting (and producing) some videos to help promote Design-Build-Run. Hopefully these videos will resonate with the wider community and generate interest in these subjects. I've actually just finished the first one and it can be found below. About to start on the next so watch this space for more!
The Importance of Being Production-Ready
A six part series of video shorts highlighting incredibly common scenarios that still happen today despite our knowledge and experience in these areas.
In this first episode a critical alert is raised on the operations bridge and the system stops. The alert and the log files don’t contain any further information. With no information, an attempt is made to restart the system but to no avail. Following an initial investigation the Operations and Technical Support conclude that a full-scale investigation needs to be carried out due to the lack of information and additional procedures. Time fast forwards to the end of the day and the impact of the outage is unveiled. . .
