Bei voller Sicht Turbo anschalten - In der heutigen Welt der mobilen, bzw. Web-Anwendungen müssen diese immer verfügbar und mit der bestmöglichen Performance für die Endbenutzer laufen. Durch die große Zahl an verschiedenen Services, die eine solche Applikation ausmachen können und die Vielzahl an Infrastruktur-Ressourcen (on-prem, off-prem), die dabei genutzt werden, verliert man schnell den Überblick bzw. hat "blinde Flecken", die man nicht einsehen kann. Letztendlich scheint man als Verantwortlicher für eine Anwendung wie durch einen Nebel auf die Ressourcenauslastung und Performance einer Anwendung zu blicken. Nachdem eine Anwendung bereitgestellt ist, weiß man in der Regel nicht, ob diese optimal genutzt wird oder ob es irgendwo zu Engpässen und damit zu Problemen kommt.

Mit IBM's Application Performance Management (APM) und Application Ressource Management (ARM) Lösungen, lichten Sie diesen Nebel. Wir zeigen Ihnen in dieser Veranstaltung wie Sie in der Lage sind, eine komplette Sicht auf alle IT-Ressourcen und Anwendungen zu bekommen. Dazu gehört auch wie Sie diese automatisch skalieren und überwachen können, sowie auch KI-gestützt, eine effiziente Analyse und Problembehebung vornehmen können.

 

“You can´t fix what you can´t see!”

Termin: Jan 18, 2022; 10AM

Um Ihre umfangreiche IT-Landschaft up-to-date zu halten, nutzen Sie z.B. UrbanCode Deploy für die Continuous Delivery all Ihrer Anwendungen. Die Überwachung dieser Anwendungen in PROD erfordert immer mehr Aufwand und wird zunehmend schwierig.

Ein Überblick über das gesamte System und seine einzelnen Komponenten und Microservices ist kaum mehr möglich. Die Enterprise Observability Platform IBM Instana nimmt automatisch Beobachtbarkeitsmetriken, traces und Ereignisse auf und setzt alle Anwendungs-, Service- und Infrastruktur-Abhängigkeiten in Kontext zueinander. Entwickler können sofort intelligente Maßnahmen zu allen aufgetretenen und sich abzeichnenden Problemen in den Anwendungen ableiten und ergreifen. Echtzeit-Analysen helfen Anwendungen performant zu bleiben.

Mit Instana sind Sie in der Lage, Ihre Systeme zu überwachen und schnell unter anderem Ausfälle, schlechte Performance oder langsame Webseiten zu erkennen und die Probleme zügig zu beheben – ideal für agile DevOps-Teams.  Wollen Sie eine hohe Verfügbarkeit und Qualität für Ihre Applikationen? Dann ist dieses Webinar genau das Richtige für Sie.

“Unterwegs mit dem Autopiloten für Ihre Anwendungsinfrastruktur”

Termin: Jan 20, 2022; 10AM

Das Erkennen von Performance Engpässen und Risiken, die die Zuverlässigkeit Ihrer Anwendungen gefährden, ist heute die wichtigste Aufgabe im Applikationsbetrieb. Denn wie sagt man: “Slow is the new down!”. Mit Turbonomic ARM gelingt es die Ressourcen Anforderungen Ihrer Anwendungen mit einer Supply Chain über den gesamten IT-Infrastrukturstack zu bedienen und damit automatisch auf mögliche Performancerisiken zu reagieren. Die Sicherstellung der Erreichbarkeit und Arbeitsfähigkeit Ihrer Anwendungen unter dem Aspekt bestmöglicher Effizienz in der Ressourcenausnutzung, ist das Ziel von Turbonomic Application Resource Management – Eben wie ein Autopilot für IT-Anwendungen.

  • Einführung: Den Nebel lichten mit APM und ARM
  • Live-Demo: Mit Weitsicht Ressourcen optimieren durch den Einsatz von IBM Turbonomic

Whitepaper mentioning UrbanCode

"NeoLoad is an open solution that provides several APIs. “It was easy to integrate with our Continuous Delivery pipeline supported by IBM Urban Code,” says Bradley. Performance tests are automatically launched weekly, which enables BCBST to detect performance issues earlier in the sprint. Continuous Delivery is implemented using a Continuous Integration tool – IBM Urban Code."

There are 4 options for how you can license the server

Virtual server and managed virtual server (Server Agent) licensing

In this scenario, the server and agents require separate licenses. You apply the IBM URBANCODE DEPLOY SERVER AGENT VIRTUAL SERVERlicense to the server and IBM URBANCODE DEPLOY SERVER AGENT MANAGED VIRTUAL SERVER licenses to the agents. If an agent does not have a license, it cannot run processes.

In this scenario, you can either allow the server to assign licenses to agents automatically or you can assign licenses to agents manually. See Applying licenses to servers and agents. The licenses are released when the agents are deleted.

UrbanCode Deploy is configured with a finite number of Server Agent licenses for an organization. When the maximum number of licenses are in use, any additional agents configured will become unlicensed and cannot run processes. Any process run on an unlicensed agent will log an error message. To resolve licensing warnings, additional licenses must be obtained, or existing licenses must be reassigned among the agents.

For this type of licensing, the Server License Type field shows Server Agent.

 

Concurrent sessions (floating licenses)

 
In this scenario, the IBM URBANCODE DEPLOY SESSION PER SIMULTANEOUS SESSION LIC license is available to the agents. When an agent runs a process, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server retrieves a license from a license server. If the first license server does not have available licenses, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server attempts to retrieve a license from the other license servers. Regardless of whether the process succeeds or fails, 15 minutes after the process is complete, the server returns the license to the license server. The same agent that ran the process can reuse that license immediately; however, the license is not available to any other agent until the 15-minute waiting period, also called linger time, is complete.

In this scenario, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server does not require a separate license.

Although session-based licensing is provided to accommodate fluctuations in application processing demands, peak processing demands result in more requested licenses than available. In order to avoid interruptions in deployments when a license server or servers run out of licenses, the agent is permitted to run the process and an entry is made in the error log. It is the customer's responsibility to monitor session usage and adjust licensing needs as required.

For this type of licensing, the Server License Type field shows Session.

 

Processor value unit (PVU) licensing

 
In this scenario, you apply the IBM URBANCODE DEPLOY MANAGED CAPACITY PVU LIC license to the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server. Then, the server can run processes. In this case, the agents do not require a separate license file; instead, each PVU license allows the server to use some agents concurrently. The number of concurrent agents might be limited or unlimited, depending on the terms of the PVU license. If you are using this licensing scenario and the license server does not have any PVU licenses for an IBM UrbanCode Deploy server, the server cannot run processes.

For this type of licensing, the Server License Type field shows Managed Capacity.

You can track your use of the PVU licenses with the IBM License Metric Tool.
Urbancode PVU licensing is a restricted pricing type. It is available, however, requires approval.

Concurrent sessions (token licenses)

 
In this scenario, the IBM URBANCODE DEPLOY SESSION INITIAL TOKEN 2 YEAR license is available to the agents. When an agent runs a process, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server retrieves some token licenses from a license server. If the first license server does not have enough available licenses, the IBM UrbanCode Deploy server attempts to retrieve licenses from the other license servers. Each agent requires twenty-two tokens to run a deployment. 15 minutes after the process is complete, the server returns the licenses to the license server. In this scenario, the server does not require a license.

Although session-based licensing is provided to accommodate fluctuations in application processing demands, peak processing demands result in more requested licenses than available. In order to avoid interruptions in deployments when a license server or servers run out of licenses, the agent is permitted to run the process and an entry is made in the error log. It is the customer's responsibility to monitor session usage and adjust licensing needs as required.

For this type of licensing, the Server License Type field shows Session.

Urbancode Token licensing is a restricted pricing type. It is available, however, requires approval.
