  1. CI/CD Pipelines: Importing and Exporting TeamCity projects across different versions

    If you develop applications and are involved with build management and pipelines then you will have heard about TeamCity, a CI / CD solution from JetBrains.Working with my current client we encountered an issue whereby we couldn't import an exported project because I was getting the below error:The selected backup file version (829) does not match the current version of the TeamCity database (856). Only backup files created with a TeamCity server of the same version as the current server are supported.
  2. Windows Server 2016 New Core Licensing Model ¿How to digest it?

    It's well know that Microsoft launched to the market the new version of Windows Server 2016 and with it, a "new" licensing model based on the physical cores.

This article purpose is to clarify some aspect of this change, how to manage it but more important: Understand it.Let's start in the beginning: WHY? Traditionally, Windows Server...
  3. Visual Studio 2017 Installer Projects

    The one thing that frustrates me a bit is how often the Visual Studio installer projects change from version to version. In fact, as of this writing there is no project template for Visual Studio 2017. It just so happened that the project that I was working on, was originally developed in Visual Studio 2015. It included a setup project that was now no longer available in Visual Studio 2017. It simply displayed the setup project as (incompatible).Some might argue that I should just go back to using...
  4. Database migrations with Continuous Delivery in Entity Framework

    Who doesn't enjoy the big term, DevOps? It sounds promising and sounds interesting as well when someone says, they work as a DevOps engineer! But like they say, Similarly, in the case of DevOps, every process, which DevOps exposes has to be handled with a great care or the results are catastrophic. In this post, I am going to talk about the swissknife of continuous delivery, in the terms of database migrations and maintenance. It has been quite a while, since I have joined DevOps practices and...

  8. Spring Cloud and Netflix Ribbon: Client-side Load Balancing

    Eventually you'll reach a point where you need to run multiple instances of an application or a service for high availability or to manage increased load. That's what load balancers are for. There's generally two different types:What many people would call a "load balancer" is actually a server-side load balancer. It can be implemented in hardware or software. The traffic is sent to a dedicated service that decides where to send the traffic, using an algorithm like round-robin, to one of the...
  9. DevOps, NoOps and No Future

    In the wake of the recent MongoDB happy hour debacle, there have been a few mentions of DevOps and NoOps. The pieces were mostly about the fact that this incident proved that the IT business is not really in full DevOps mode, not to mention NoOps. I am not confident that NoOps will be the future for a vast majority of shops. Being from the Ops side of things, I am obviously biased toward anyone stating that NoOps is the future. Because that would mean no job left for me and my comrades in arms....
  10. Don't Fear Cloud Lock-In, Just Architect Differently

    I've worked with many different clients who are either on the verge of moving to the cloud, or who are in the cloud and are terrified that they will be "locked in" to a particular provider. A lot of these same clients have spent months or years just coming to the core decision to move to the cloud, let alone trying to implement solutions there. These fears usually rise up once an SDK is mentioned, and most often its always developers voicing these concerns. My experience has taught me these fears...
