Setup S3 buckets with Cross Region Replication

This is the second blog post in our series related to the configuring replication with Git LFS using Amazon S3 Bucket. In the first blog we have discussed what are the implications of using Git LFS together with replication and how to improve it. Before we begin I would like to thank my colleague Logarajan. Logarajan has helped me a lot and co-authored this post. This time, we are going to set up the Git LFS data replication. We will use S3 Cross Region Replication (CRR) feature to replicate the objects from one S3 bucket to another. That way the …

TeamForge Replication with Git LFS S3 backend

Amazon S3 replication mechanism

Let’s talk a bit about Git LFS (Large File Storage) in context of Git replication with TeamForge. What is Git LFS? As you can read on Git LFS Project page: Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server. What is important here is that the file contents of large files are stored outside the Git repository, on the remote server, the Git LFS Server. The LFS support in TeamForge is based on the open source Gerrit LFS plugin. …

What You Missed at #Agile2018

I’ve just returned from Agile 2018 in sunny San Diego and wow, what a fantastic week it was!

Expanding Agile-plus-DevOps Across the Enterprise Value Stream

DevOps has grown significantly in recent years as an approach to better and faster software delivery through breaking down the Development and Operations silos. Author and speaker Gene Kim defines DevOps in The DevOps Handbook as, “The emerging professional movement that advocates a collaborative working relationship between Development and IT Operations, resulting in the fast flow of planned work (i.e., high deploy rates), while simultaneously increasing the reliability, stability, resilience and security of the production environment.” What types of challenges prompt an enterprise to start looking to DevOps to improve process and flow? Issues such as: Lack of management visibility; …

Branching Strategy – The Forgotten Child of DevOps

The ideal DevOps project starts with everything stored in source control. As a coach, I often find that too little thought is given to how a team will handle their source control branching strategy. Time and time again I have seen how this one decision determines much of the complexity of both product and process. The ease of the journey to continuous delivery is largely dependent on this decision. Teams see success when they take time to make this decision and don’t just buy into master-only development or a model such as GitFlow. Instead, they think about how they want …

Four Questions to Manage Your Value Stream

While it may seem that DevOps is past its honeymoon phase, quite the opposite might be true. As noted in the 12th Annual State of Agile Report, 48 percent of respondents said that their organization is currently undergoing a DevOps initiative. That leaves 52 percent who are only planning or are not even on their DevOps journey yet! However, 65 percent of respondents said that a DevOps transformation was important or very important to their business. So, why might there be a lag between adoption and acknowledgement of benefits? One of the main reasons teams set out on a DevOps …
