What is a cloud screen operation and what is an activity in cloud infra ?

What is a cloud screen operation and what is an activity in cloud infra ?

Folks,

There are crores of people have been attending online/offline training on Cloud and DevOps.

But Do we know what is a screen operation ?

What is a project activity ?

I would like to give some elaboration on them to know the real differences.

Let us take AWS;

You want to create a VM which is EC2 service. You need to understand its screen operations to launch the default VM. Yes you know very well through numerous trainings you attended.

But when I come to my second question;

What is the use of this EC2 machine ?

What for I need to use ?

Where can I use in my infrastructure building activity ?

How to connect in  a network ?

How to share that machine access to different developers ?

If we have a 3-tier application how to build in  a cloud ?

How can I do internal networking ?

How can I do external networking from my account to other accounts ?

What are the best practices I can use to build the cost effective infrastructure ?

Finally, how to automate this

Offcourse, these are live activities on need to answer in an interview and perform those for right delivery.

But my next question is how to learn these gaps and move forward into the job roles ?

You need to learn the Infra domain knowledge. And build some kind of proof of concept [POC] projects through experienced mentors.

For all the above solutions, please visit my consolidated blog and connect with my on linked [Name: Shanthi Kumar V] to chat with you first, to assess you for this coaching.

Cloud cum DevOps Coaching: How to Connect to save your future ROI ?
If you are a determined and self projected Cloud/DevOps Professional, you do not need to crawl among the peace meal trainings and watching tons of videos by wasting your time. But those can be useful for few hours of your project activities to complete. There is a lot to learn to deliver an activity in Cloud Infra and DevOps process related. Through coaching, you can attend upto the project role level end to end tasks coaching to mold you technically and professionally on the role. In most of the projects they are expecting the IAC to develop and give demos in review calls. On live nobody will be there to mentor you. You will be evaluated regularly on the performance. Many of the companies have made monthly evaluation/appraisals [hidden HR process] to sack the fake and NON-Performance IT profiles to save their project cost.

AWS VPC S3-End Point: Trouble shoot for defects also

AWS VPC S3-End Point: Trouble shoot for defects also

Folks,

User requirement: The development team needs the S3 Access in private Linux EC2s. They need a separate VPC with S3 End point setup. IAM role need to be given to the developers to access S3 files from EC2 through AWS CLI.

Doing the typical VPC-S3 End point is a normal way. But we tried a different way. We documented the Infra design steps. By following them, we breaked those design steps and demonstrated how the defects can be created at different levels.

So one can learn how the defects can be flown around, in this steps journey. So that the live issues can be understood easily.

Please note; one more thing. The demo participant is from NON-IT, She learnt a lot during this course with weekly 20+ hours dedication. And once the manual infra demo is given, in few days she will come up with IAC scripts demo for the same setup. During the coaching I filter NON-IT People also for their dedication/hard work and prove and learn attitude to utilize my coaching well. Definitely such people are very valid resources for IT organizations. As long as the management understand these people capability, they are not the competitors and no need of doing fake in profiles. There are so many NON-IT dedicated and honest people ready to convince on the interviews comparing to the proxy guys.

You can watch the demo from the below video:

Some more videos from the same participant can be seen below:

How do you plan an IAC [Infrastructure As Code] ?

vskumarcloud-build-cloud-architect

When you are working for DevOps practices, the following question I would like to ask…

How do you plan an IAC [Infrastructure As Code] ?

You or your team member might be expert in Configuration tools.

But without having clear environment specifications these tools will not have any AI to get your environment.

When we do IAC as part of Devops practices, we also need to do identification of Infrastructure needs for different environments.

At that time one need to do the following activities also.

This is not only for a Cloud Architect, even for a DevOps practitioners it is mandatory.

Please note unless you give specifications to DevOps Engineer he/she can not build sustainable environment.

Your prior planning is very essential.

https://business.facebook.com/watch/?v=2513558698681591

Please follow my videos : https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/

NOTE:

Let us also be aware: Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market on AWS, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of IAC. They give a Console and ask you to setup a specific Infra setup in AWS.

In my coaching I focus on the candidates to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience rather than pushing the course with screen operations only to complete. Through my posted videos you can watch this USP.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview/selection process. Which is very easy with this knowledge.

Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners only by having dedicated time. If you are a busy resource on the projects please note; you can wait to become free to learn. One need to spend time consistently on the practice. Otherwise its going to be in no-use.

I have made the below video after having calls with many Cloud professionals globally. Many of the Cloud Engineers are failing due to lack of the domain based skills. Even recently in top notch tech news sites they have published on how the Cloud projects are costing more inspite of saving the cost to the organizations. It is eventual to learn the domain based skills for the Cloud/DevOps professionals to meet the delivery cycle time.

Lack of Cloud skills for DevOps Engineer -2 [FAQs]: This video talks on the possibility of lack of Skills for some of the AWS Cloud/DevOps Engineers. Most of the IT employers are looking from the Cloud or DevOps engineers the Environment building automatically with DevOps process/IAC. In this video the DevOps process and its automation process is discussed for feasible interview questions by mapping to the AWS-DevOps. And what role people can learn by self and who are the roles can not learn by self with the reasons.

Suggestions for the real hardworking Professionals:

Today’s investment of your Efforts is going to be your future’s guaranteed position in IT. Pinks slips should be 1000 miles away from you. The recruiters need to chase you always, on your availability of fixing the infra/Devops projects. This kind of courage and capability you need to build to sustain in the current modern technology implementation in IT.

How A Cloud architect is different from DevOps role ?

vskumarcloud-build-cloud-architect.pngHow A Cloud architect is different from DevOps practices ?

We have been watching on lot of FB Groups and ad sites as “learn DevOps/AWS”. In general everybody believe with these stickers/posters they need to learn AWS and DevOps together is a must for any Modern technology professional.

When we talk about AWS and DevOps they are two different work streams.

Now, one might get the below questions in their mind.

  1. Is a Cloud Architect need to be expert to work on DevOps activities also ?
  2. What are the activities related to Cloud architect ?
  3. Why the Cloud architect need not bother on DevOps ?

Now, let us analyze them as below:

The role of the cloud architect is to migrate the existing IT infrastructure setup into the cloud services. The cloud services can be AWS or Azure or Google cloud [GC] or Alibaba, etc.

From the below picture one can have clarity if they have experience in traditional Infrastructure building  practice.

How to create AWS S3 Bucket

This role need to understand clearly on the usage of those vendor related [AWS/AZURE/GC/Alibaba] cloud services and should have command on mapping the current traditional infrastructure setup to map to the cloud services and plan/design for its transformation with the additional benefits to the management in view of cost and easy operation.

Once the modern application architecture/infrastructure in cloud is operational, then the management can think of introducing the DevOps practices.

To work on DevOps practices, each Cloud services vendor provides their own setup or tools at different processes or pipeline stages. To do these tasks a separate role professionals are required, who are called DevOps Engineers. At this point the role of the cloud Architect is he/she can guide them on the available infrastructure with the Cloud vendor. As per the Cloud architect planning/guidelines the DevOps engineers need to adopt the relevant tools/processes. Basically all the setup is going to be on IAC [Infrastructure As A Code] technics. There can be Configuration tools to create the IAC for different environments. At this point the Cloud architect can monitor these tools implementation as a part of cloud infrastructure implementation.

So, the Cloud architect do not need to make his/her fingers dirty with tools/commands to implement the DevOps processes.

For example; If you read the roles of AWS with different certifications, they mention Solution Architect [SA] separately from DevOps engineer role. They have multiple roles like; Sys ops, Developer, etc. All these roles need to be expert in making their fingers dirty with the relevant AWS services usage/implementation efficiently and effectively . But here the Cloud Architect [which is SA in view of AWS] role is to monitor on their activities only. He/She doesn’t need to put the fingers into techie stuff.

Hope I have given clarity for the above questions.

I get lot of enquiries; as they want to do AWS/DevOps both the courses together. I understood due to lot of training vendors are making their posters on social for their business, these experienced professionals are getting confusion as they need to learn both.

Now, I would like to ask the below questions to you as this blog reader after the above understanding;

Do a modern technology professional need to learn Cloud services and also the DevOps as mandatory ? [Ex: Which is DevOps/AWS].

Answer: It is not. They can choose One route only. If he/she came from the real work experience of Sysadmin/Sys engineer role, the past experiences need to be utilized efficiently in IT Industry. Hence the Scalable role is Cloud architect. In view of AWS it is SA. But they need to have very good command in understanding the traditional architecture and also the cloud services to establish a well suited conversion plan. This role person is responsible to  show ROI [Return On Investment] also to the management.

You can also compare the SAA Salary among all the roles being played with AWS:

See the difference on the salary amounts to seek your role as per your professional potentiality.

Question: In the current job market in the JDs they ask on DevOps also for Cloud role why ?

Answer: Please let us note; Many organizations they wanted to use the same resource for Cloud and DevOps Architect/Engineer role to save their IT budget. But they offer more salary for these multi skills. Not only this scenario, there are many companies use multi-cloud technology for their BCP. They will ask these skills also. The skills acceleration is mandated for every Professional now a days. The more skills you acquire the early, your CTC is going to touch the Sky ASAP.

1. AWS IAC: How many ways you can use IAC for automation ?

Folks,

In this Blog I would like to add my IAC related sessions at one place.

If you want to know what is IAC, scroll bottom. The past blog contents are also copied for definitions.

How do you plan an IAC [Infrastructure As Code] ?

vskumarcloud-build-cloud-architect

When you are working for DevOps practices, the following question I would like to ask…

How do you plan an IAC [Infrastructure As Code] ?

You or your team member might be expert in Configuration tools.

But without having clear environment specifications these tools will not have any AI to get your environment.

When we do IAC as part of Devops practices, we also need to do identification of Infrastructure needs for different environments.

At that time one need to do the following activities also.

This is not only for a Cloud Architect, even for a DevOps practitioners it is mandatory.

Look into the discussion video mentioned in the below URL.

Please note unless you give specifications to DevOps Engineer he/she can not build sustainable environment.

Your prior planning is very essential.

Stage2: CodeBuild POC activities samples for AWS

Folks, Greetings!

In this blog, I would like to keep posting the relevant sample videos of Stage2 Course on CodeBuild of AWS.

There are different participants with different IT roles background, they attend my courses. Each participant might do differently the POCs and also their project reviews are totally different. You will see some of them here. Each video has a detailed description, that should give a clear picture on the series of the steps we follow during this AWS CodeBuild process. In the blog, I have continued from the CodeCommit phase onwards the POCs. You can also see the Stage2 Course contents discussion video in this blog.

You can see the basics of the DevOps process video links also in the video description.

In the below video, we have discussed on the POC review of CodeCommit in the 1st part and 2nd part there was introduction on the AWS CodeBuild.

You can see the below video on how the Cloud cum DevOps Architect coaching has been designed:

If you want to know the Stage2 Course details, you can see the below video:

Coaching: How the traditional IMS roles can be transformed into Cloud Services roles ?

To know the history of the IMS roles till the Cloud era, you should watch this video.

What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ? 

If you are in the below roles, in the current recession you will be targeted for pinkslip among the IT professionals as 1st exit group. What you need to do on your career replan. Please see/follow the blog/videos with patience. 

As per my observation and practice with the trending technology [Cloud], all the Cloud services vendors have inbuilt serverless computing for many services. The following roles are going to be vanished or reskilled. But if they are kept under recession staff cut, these professionals need to take care of their career.

1. DBA:–>The DBA tasks are embedded as part of these services. So the DBAs used to sit hours together in the past to perform many mundane tasks. Now these all are automated. For details you can see the below video:

2. Similarly, many other tasks are related to infra roles; Network admin/Sys-Admin are also automated through Cloud services.

3. As a consolidation all these 3 roles are clubbed into one role of Cloud Engineer. This role’s major task is to automate all the Cloud setup related activities under IAC[Infrastructure As Code]. In future only the IAC will sustain to save the cost to IT by automating the cloud setup creation activity.

4. If any professional need to compete with this role means; they need to understand the Infra needs and the past roles tasks in depth. Along with the multiple Infra related architecture scenarios, with in-depth knowledge on Cloud technology. Then only they can analyze the IAC requirements clearly to write the code and test it. This is the domain analysis and design activity they need to consider apart from the Cloud technology learning.

5. We can also see the Storage engineer role. All the Cloud vendors have the Cloud Storage services. With them mundane tasks creation/maintenance is vanished. Hence this role also will not exist.

IT-infra-Roles
IT-SDLC-Roles

The below video has the discussion on: A) What IT Roles can vanish after migrating to Cloud? B) How the roles/tasks are being transformed to Cloud through serverless computing technology ? C) Why anybody can learn and do the past Infra roles with Cloud ? D) What all they need to learn ? E) How the organizations can demand an employee to convert into modern technology before taking a decision for a pink slip serving ?
Finally, what are the following roles and their tasks:
Traditional Infrastructure building roles:
1.Network Admin/Engineer
2.System Administrator
3.Database Administrator
4. Deployment Engineer

Technical Roles:
1.Developer
2.Test Engineer/Analyst

F) Among the above which role can pickup faster the Cloud/DevOps Automation technology ?
G) Then How these roles can perform in Cloud  with faster deployment ?
H) Why and how the manpower reduction happen after Cloud implementation ?

I) Why do you need to learn from the experienced IT mentors to transform into modern technology ?

K) Some people say, they can learn by self. How much they can learn and cope-up with the current market needs on various technologies to settle in modern technology ? [refer to point#5 in this blog].

L) Why do you need to spend/invest  more money to re-settle in the modern technology ?

Note: Along with this video, there are multiple blogs I have published with Videos links to make awareness to the IT Professionals. You see those blogs from this site itself.

For further understanding please read the below text:

In the current IT World Cloud computing became regular practice for any IT Professional. Any cloud services we use, we need to know the current/traditional infrastructure setup. But every IT professional may not have that background/knowledge to understand. Because in this industry each of us played  different roles.

The Infra activities handled IT Professional only will come to know this knowledge and will have experience. But the industry needs every IT employee need to know this knowledge apart from the Cloud service provider [Ex: AWS, Azure, GC, etc..] products operations. [Eventhough, if you are a certified Solutions architect with that Cloud service provider.]

Then only whoever the professionals are certified they will be able to use these products/services and implement them under cloud setup. Hence the Infra domain knowledge or experience is mandated for every IT professional who is working for Cloud services or in that infra setup. I have been hearing during Cloud professionals recruitment the interviewers are keeping some questions on this area also. If one understand the Network domain setup then only they will be able to design the Cloud architecture. Hence more employers are worried to have this domain knowledge with the Certified and recruited Cloud professionals.

I have started a Cloud Practices group to educate/share the IT professionals with this domain knowledge. The below link can be used to join/apply:

Guys A NOTE for you:

Folks,
How to Join in my Facebook groups to learn Cloud cum DevOps Concepts ?
For any Trainings many people conduct demos by catching the IT Professionals through their sales people. That demo denotes the trainer has the technical capabilities to handle the course for the attendees. In my coaching also I have followed the similar concept. But I don’t give demos by spending time, as I work as alone. In my case I have created the groups in Facebook: a) DevOps Practices Group, b) Cloud Practices Group c) Free Learning Agile/DevOps/AWS/AZ for freshers and IT Professionals. With few of the web pages by IT topic.

One can learn and assess them by joining. For more details you can watch this video. To join in them, you need to connect with me on FB and Linkedin and send a message. Then only you will be approved. This is a verification process to avoid fake ids.

Cloud/Devops: How the ITSM professionals can be reused ?

Cloud/DevOps: Rebuild ITSM for Cloud/DevOps:

The Traditional ITSM professionals do not have option, except converting into Cloud/DevOps roles with the relevant tools. How this methodology works in a project level from an individual, what skills one need to be groomed: Watch the video and its description. This kind of practices a COE need to follow if the IT company has the financial capability to run the COE building at this stage instead of loosing the knowledgeable guys. Or the individuals need to open their eyes to switch their career by taking experts one on one coaching.

Rebuild Your IT career from ITSM to Infra and DevOps building with traditional exp.
I have not included the real ITSM roles. Those also can utilize into the conversion. Case to case it can be discussed. Each Organization has their own title and using them for ITSM delivery also. These role guys can work easily for implementing the IT governance in Cloud/DevOps comparatively with other roles.
This is the Stage1 Course Highlight. You will be coached for the concepts of JSON/YAML scripts towards writing the AWS Cloud service components creation. Your personal practice efforts are mandated here.
A detailed Stage2 course discussion video is there in one of the blogs. Follow the below link: https://vskumar.blog/2020/01/20/aws-devops-stage1-stage2-course-for-modern-tech-professional/
Your effort in practicing tools is required here.

Also be aware on the below points [Published in a blog also] :

I feel; For every DevOps Professional learning Infra building activity is mandatory. See the issues, what you are facing within them. Atleast one of them you are facing from your end as mentioned in the below slide/video. Then there is a gap in your implementation practice with lack of learning in a right method with best practices. So think on your actions after the below videos watching!

The new Internship programme is made for the working IT Professionals, AS PART TIME. WHICH IS ONGOING.

Please see the below blog for details and also watch the discussion with a new participant on the size of the POCs during the coaching:

3. As a consolidation all these 3 roles are clubbed into one role of Cloud Engineer. This role’s major task is to automate all the Cloud setup related activities under IAC[Infrastructure As Code]. In future only the IAC will sustain to save the cost to IT by automating the cloud setup creation activity.

4. If any professional need to compete with this role means; they need to understand the Infra needs and the past roles tasks in depth. Along with the multiple Infra related architecture scenarios, with in-depth knowledge on Cloud technology. Then only they can analyze the IAC requirements clearly to write the code and test it. This is the domain analysis and design activity they need to consider apart from the Cloud technology learning.

5. We can also see the Storage engineer role. All the Cloud vendors have the Cloud Storage services. With them mundane tasks creation/maintenance is vanished. Hence this role also will not exist.

IT-infra-Roles
IT-SDLC-Roles

The below video has the discussion on: A) What IT Roles can vanish after migrating to Cloud? B) How the roles/tasks are being transformed to Cloud through serverless computing technology ? C) Why anybody can learn and do the past Infra roles with Cloud ? D) What all they need to learn ? E) How the organizations can demand an employee to convert into modern technology before taking a decision for a pink slip serving ?
Finally, what are the following roles and their tasks:
Traditional Infrastructure building roles:
1.Network Admin/Engineer
2.System Administrator
3.Database Administrator
4. Deployment Engineer

5. Storage Engineer — There is a separate video done for this role education:

Technical Roles:
1.Developer
2.Test Engineer/Analyst

F) Among the above which role can pickup faster the Cloud/DevOps Automation technology ?
G) Then How these roles can perform in Cloud  with faster deployment ?
H) Why and how the manpower reduction happen after Cloud implementation ?

I) Why do you need to learn from the experienced IT mentors to transform into modern technology ?

K) Some people say, they can learn by self. How much they can learn and cope-up with the current market needs on various technologies to settle in modern technology ? [refer to point#5 in this blog].

L) Why do you need to spend/invest  more money to re-settle in the modern technology ?

Note: Along with this video, there are multiple blogs I have published with Videos links to make awareness to the IT Professionals. You see those blogs from this site itself.

For further understanding please read the below text:

In the current IT World Cloud computing became regular practice for any IT Professional. Any cloud services we use, we need to know the current/traditional infrastructure setup. But every IT professional may not have that background/knowledge to understand. Because in this industry each of us played  different roles.

The Infra activities handled IT Professional only will come to know this knowledge and will have experience. But the industry needs every IT employee need to know this knowledge apart from the Cloud service provider [Ex: AWS, Azure, GC, etc..] products operations. [Eventhough, if you are a certified Solutions architect with that Cloud service provider.]

Then only whoever the professionals are certified they will be able to use these products/services and implement them under cloud setup. Hence the Infra domain knowledge or experience is mandated for every IT professional who is working for Cloud services or in that infra setup. I have been hearing during Cloud professionals recruitment the interviewers are keeping some questions on this area also. If one understand the Network domain setup then only they will be able to design the Cloud architecture. Hence more employers are worried to have this domain knowledge with the Certified and recruited Cloud professionals.

I have started a Cloud Practices group to educate/share the IT professionals with this domain knowledge. The below link can be used to join/apply:

AWS: POC-How to Build WordPress web site in AWS Cloud/Network ?


Most of the Blogs on websites are operated by WordPress[WP] software which is developed in PHP. Even my site [vskumar.blog] is from this software. To setup the WP, there are tier based architecture/setup required. For PHP related software we can have a 2-tier architecture setup.

For detailed analysis and the required AWS components for setting up W, below blog you can visit/follow blog:
https://vskumar.blog/2018/12/31/2-aws-wordpresswp-infrastructure-creation-using-a-free-tier-account/

In this demo video the WP site building project was discussed with different design steps towards AWS components and it was demonstrated well by one of our [experienced IT Professional] students well.


These are weekly assignments they get and they need to prove by themselves with a demo in a team; like live environment how it happens in a typical project team. By attending this activity delivery on weekly basis, one will not get any fear/scareness on doing the live infra tasks. They will be habituated with the project activities when they join in real job. And they will be productive resources from day one onwards. These are the major benefits from my course.

AWS: POC-How to do VPC Peering with 2 VPCs ?

When we have two networks in traditional methods, we used to do internal networking within the premises. And used those servers for Software APIs. Also the Sysadmin/DBAs/Network Admin role people used to manage them well. But in Cloud how to implement this kind of setup ?

Now, In Cloud how this internetworking can be done through VPC peering ?

Watch this introduction chapter before you go to the below POCs:

In this POC project, it is well proven how we can create such kind of environment by using 2 VPCs and their peering with deeper analysis and the design steps of different services. And how the private subnet related Linux and Windows EC2s can be accessed by using NAT and Jump Servers?. And how to operate another VPC EC2 from one VPC EC2 ? Just watch this design steps analysis video from the below link:

In the below video a POC analysis is discussed with an Experienced Cloud/DevOps professional.

Watch the below video for How to config NATGATEWAY and use it for Private EC2 MySql config.

Mock interview : A typical Cloud Engineer interview for a JD

This is not for Proxy…

 

Please watch the below video[It has the detailed JD]:

 

Please contact if you are really an experienced Professional for Mock interviews practice. I do this as a separate service for global IT Professionals, who are trying for Next role scaling.

I filter the in-experienced [fake profiled] people in the beginning itself. Hence please be open with me with your profile. Please Let us not waste time.

AWS-Mock-Interviews

What is Proxy interview ? [For client who conduct overseas or offsite interview]:

Instead of the candidate answering the questions by a Subject matter expert he/she talks.

These people might have attended 1000s of proxy interviews. You can identify they are very confident in the communication/subject, etc.. You will not find with them any defect!! So there woud’nt be rejection from you. [Infact, they are very hardworkers by doing several POCs practice with reference to the JDs.] Obviously you are forced to select. You might feel you did video interview also. There is a secret you need to understand. This guy sits in the back end of the monitor. The real guy sits infront of the Camera. So you will compare the photo and his face. You will not find any defect in the face right ? How the proxy guy can talk ? There will be splitter kind of equipment connect to the computer to have 2 headsets. So can you find a defect here ? No, it is hard for you to trace!!! The proxy organizers are very talented like hackers. You try to implement a security practice for interview, they identify a loop hole like a hacker and use it to get the approval done by you.

So you are royally! cheated very well to give the offer!!

Where and how these proxy organizing companies work ?

There are numerous body shoppers companies in North America. They take the OPT guys in the 2nd year and groom them to make their mind lazy by giving support by SME and job support also after they started working. They pay around 20-30% of your billing to the candidate and balance to SMEs/Profit share.

During the job how can you find this categories ?:

You avoid giving work from home options. Do a random smoke test daily. The poor guy will be exposed! and be helpless. He/she fails!! Because your greatest IT vendor molded him/her to make their mind lazy!! as impossible to learn and depend on SME like a drug edict.

For Candidates [Who had Proxy interview]:

What happens after proxy interview in the companies. You may get offer. But they do a smoke test kind of weekly tests. Then You will be burnt due to the client has got some feeling you are not the person spoke to them with the subject expertism during the interview. Hence we have come up with a proposal to get you self ready for interviews. Read the above content and come back for a discussion in a scheduled call. We want the people to self build themselves and not to get into the wrong shoes!! to become like a drug addict!!

For Freshers and intending to attend Proxy interviews !

Are you getting into the wrong shoes [Proxy] for client interviews ?
After you join in job [in India] what happens ?
Are you aware; your profile is going to be in Indian NASSCOM DB to track by your future employers [for Indian jobs].
So, whatever the current employer has the faked profile it is going to be entered by HRs after you are proved as fake profile, into NASSCOM DB.
In such case are you going to be into a right company in future ?
Do you want to destroy your career by proxy agents ?

 FAQs-Cloud-Concepts

What is IAAS and how it can be used from traditional setup to the Virtual/Cloud setup ?

What is PAAS and how it can be used from development/customization of the tools ?

What is SAAS and how these can be hosted into the Virtual/Cloud setup ?

If you have a Payroll application and running regularly. And now you found Cloud infra is a sophisticated one rather using the old or outdated systems, you called a Cloud expert. And what questions you need to ask him/her ? How he should answer to provide the solutions ?

This video has the above discussions with different scenarios. Once can brush up their interview skills well on these aspects.

A quick review on DevOps Practices for DevOps Engineers/Practitioners

Watch this video.

DevOps Patterns
devops-process
  1. DevOps is a terminology used to refer to a set of principles and practices to emphasize the collaboration and communication of Information Technology [IT] professionals in a software project organization, while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure using Continuous Delivery Integration[CDI] methods.
  2. The DevOps is also connecting the teams of Development and Operations together to work collaboratively to deliver the Software to the customers in an iterative development model by adopting Continuous Delivery Integration [CDI] concepts. The software delivery happens  in small pieces at different delivery intervals. Sometimes these intervals can be accelerated depends on the customer demand.
  3. The DevOps is a new practice globally adopted by many companies and its importance and implementation is accelerating by maintaining constant speed.  So every IT professional need to learn the concepts of DevOps and its Continuous Delivery Integration [CDI] methods. To know the typical DevOps activities by role just watch the video: https://youtu.be/vpgi5zZd6bs, it is pasted below in videos.
  4. Even a college graduate or freshers also need to have this knowledge or practices to work closely with their new project teams in a company. If a fresher attends this course he/she can get into the project shoes faster to cope up with the  experienced teams.
  5. Another way; The DevOps is an extension practice of Agile and continuous delivery. To merge into this career; the IT professionals  need to learn the Agile concepts, Software configuration management, Release management, deployment management and  different DevOps principles and practices to implement the CDI patterns. The relevant tools for these practices integration. There are various tool vendors in the market. Also open source tools are very famous. Using these tools the DevOps practices can be integrated to maintain the speed for CDI.
  6. There  are tools related with version control and CDI automation. One need to learn the process steps related to these areas by attending a course. Then the tools can be understood easily.  If one understands these CDI automation practices and later on learning the tools process is very easy by self also depends on their work environment.
  7. As mentioned in the above; Every IT company or IT services company need to adopt the DevOps practices for their customers competent service delivery in global IT industry. When these companies adopt these practices, their resources also need to be with thorough knowledge of DevOps practices to serve to the customers. The companies can get more benefit by having these knowledged resources. At the same time the new joinees in any company either experienced or fresher professional if they have this knowledge, their CTC in view of perks will be offered more or with competent offer they may be invited to join in that company.
  8. Let us know if you need  DevOps training  from  the IT industry experienced people; which includes the above practice areas to boost you in the IT industry.

Training will be given by 3 decades of Global IT experienced  professional(s):

Do you want to become Cloud cum DevOps Architect in one go ?

How to become a Cloud cum DevOps Architect role, the IT industry demanding role to save costing ?

Many business based companies they might have the employee size from 50-40% only under the current global situation to save costing. They can attempt the first staff/contractor cut on IT professionals only to save costing. Globally, if we see from May to July 2020, crores [millions] of IT Professionals might come out by loosing the jobs.

What the IT Cos might look in In such case and how long an IT professional will be job less. I can say till he/she meets the technical requirement of a company in the global market to handle end to end. The companies would prefer to have multi Cloud skills to handle end to end engagement. They would like to follow a different strategy to work on cost efficient plans. They prefer the Cloud professional to plan everything and can execute the planned activities to implement by self including the Infra and DevOps automation. This is required for every IT Professionals; [it does’nt matter in what role they are; developer/tester/BA, etc..] to be aware of on their technical environments and do by self from end to end IT solutions.

But convincing/updates/approvals need to happen from the middle management only. In such case each individual need to assess at what level they are and how to fish the right job for them after few months. And in the meanwhile what skill gaps need to be upgraded to work as an individuals with the above mentioned automation areas by getting the massive infra/DevOps practices knowledge. For further the details see the below content which can help on your career rebuild plan to restart your second innings through this massive recession.

If you are more than 5 years Infra role experienced IT working Professional [from any country], you can become Cloud cum DevOps Architect by learning through experts coaching with live implementable activities.
There will be market crunch for this combinational skills and dryness happens very soon as per the IT research articles.

Build Cloud architects-FB promotion

Why the DevOps practice team is required to involve in Infra cloud planning?

I was talking to some clients recently on the importance of Cloud migration activities planning. I have come with some guidelines for them as part of my engagement. Some of my guidelines given to them, I would like to share as below.

When the DevOps practice team need to do the infra setup  for a cloud migration they also need to participate on the identification of Infra activities and the specifications. Which is very essential.

This need to be done as initial step with any Cloud services migration.

As per my opinion we can work with any cloud services like; AWS/AZURE/Google Cloud, etc., by having the above activity as mandatory.

The attached blog/Video contains the same discussion with the details of the steps required to setup a Virtual Private Cloud. The VPC nomenclature we might have seen with AWS. But similar setup or name cane be there with other Cloud service providers also.

Once this VPC is created the systems are going to be hosted on Cloud.

The Ops team’s responsibility is; to make sure the Cloud migration is correctly and completely done for all the live setup.

At the same time they also need to conduct a pilot testing activity successfully which is mandated as per the Agile Projects management [Agile PM] standards before they announce go live.

They also need to do a parallel run along with the past production setup with a new cloud setup for few weeks.

Below URL contains the initial planning discussion as mentioned:

Mock interview practice – Contact for AWS/DevOps/SRE roles [not for Proxy!!] – for original profile only

 

Folks, I feel the IT individual professional need to learn a lot on the accelerating modern technology to implement. A self driven learning can boost the candidate like an Immunity boost to the human Body.

Many people can not do this by self. They need the boosters.

My coaching can work like a booster for you to self motivate and create a courage and confidence to implement these practices. In this post I would like to share the below.

This is on the Mock interviews service which I offer: 

I have conducted the Mock interviews for One experienced DevOps Sr. professional on the below roles, who attended a crash course in 2 months duration. He gained lot of courage and confidence later on. Now he is a Platform Architect. [not interested to reveal his details, as many people are disturbing him to clarify their non-sense doubts without understanding the value of this course and the curriculum, even after provided the courses specimen openly through blogs/videos]:  

1. Cloud Architect role

2. DevOps Architect Partner role

3. DevOps Engineer role

I have listed the above roles related video only in the below blog. He also attended for Sr.SRE roles also.

After completion of two stages of my coaching I do the above kind of mock interviews for my students.

But there is a separate mock interview service also I offer for the experienced Cloud/DevOps Professionals to groom them for interviews. Not for the fake profiles. I reject the fake profiles in my 1st 1-2 calls only.

https://vskumar.blog/2020/02/03/contact-for-aws-devops-sre-roles-mock-interview-prep-not-proxy-for-original-profile/

You can attend “practice mock interviews” sessions. See the samples.

HOW PROXY interview companies  ARE BEING OPERATED ?

How they have been stealing your jobs in the IT Market ?

THIS MESSAGE IS FOR THE ORIGINAL IT PROFESSIONALS AND NOT FOR THE  PROXY ORAGANIZERS TO CONTACT.

AWS-Mock-Interviews

What is Proxy interview ? [For client who conduct overseas or offsite interview]:

Instead of the candidate answering the questions by a Subject matter expert he/she talks.

These people might have attended 1000s of proxy interviews. You can identify they are very confident in the communication/subject, etc.. You will not find with them any defect!! So there woud’nt be rejection from you. [Infact, they are very hardworkers by doing several POCs practice with reference to the JDs.] Obviously you are forced to select. You might feel you did video interview also. There is a secret you need to understand. This guy sits in the back end of the monitor. The real guy sits infront of the Camera. So you will compare the photo and his face. You will not find any defect in the face right ? How the proxy guy can talk ? There will be splitter kind of equipment connect to the computer to have 2 headsets. So can you find a defect here ? No, it is hard for you to trace!!! The proxy organizers are very talented like hackers. You try to implement a security practice for interview, they identify a loop hole like a hacker and use it to get the approval done by you.

So you are royally! cheated very well to give the offer!!

Where and how these proxy organizing companies work ?

There are numerous body shoppers companies in North America. They take the OPT guys in the 2nd year and groom them to make their mind lazy by giving support by SME and job support also after they started working. They pay around 20-30% of your billing to the candidate and balance to SMEs/Profit share.

During the job how can you find this categories ?:

You avoid giving work from home options. Do a random smoke test daily. The poor guy will be exposed! and be helpless. He/she fails!! Because your greatest IT vendor molded him/her to make their mind lazy!! as impossible to learn and depend on SME like a drug edict.

For Candidates [Who had Proxy interview]:

What happens after proxy interview in the companies. You may get offer. But they do a smoke test kind of weekly tests. Then You will be burnt due to the client has got some feeling you are not the person spoke to them with the subject expertism during the interview. Hence we have come up with a proposal to get you self ready for interviews. Read the above content and come back for a discussion in a scheduled call. We want the people to self build themselves and not to get into the wrong shoes!! to become like a drug addict!!

For Freshers and intending to attend Proxy interviews !

Are you getting into the wrong shoes [Proxy] for client interviews ?
After you join in job [in India] what happens ?
Are you aware; your profile is going to be in Indian NASSCOM DB to track by your future employers [for Indian jobs].
So, whatever the current employer has the faked profile it is going to be entered by HRs after you are proved as fake profile, into NASSCOM DB.
In such case are you going to be into a right company in future ?
Do you want to destroy your career by proxy agents ?

Cloud: What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ?

What IT roles can vanish with Cloud transition ? 

If you are in the below roles, in the current recession you will be targeted for pinkslip among the IT professionals as 1st exit group. What you need to do on your career replan. Please see/follow the blog/videos with patience. 

As per my observation and practice with the trending technology [Cloud], all the Cloud services vendors have inbuilt serverless computing for many services. The following roles are going to be vanished or reskilled. But if they are kept under recession staff cut, these professionals need to take care of their career.

1. DBA:–>The DBA tasks are embedded as part of these services. So the DBAs used to sit hours together in the past to perform many mundane tasks. Now these all are automated.

2. Similarly, many other tasks are related to infra roles; Network admin/Sys-Admin are also automated through Cloud services.

3. As a consolidation all these 3 roles are clubbed into one role of Cloud Engineer. This role’s major task is to automate all the Cloud setup related activities under IAC[Infrastructure As Code]. In future only the IAC will sustain to save the cost to IT by automating the cloud setup creation activity.

4. If any professional need to compete with this role means; they need to understand the Infra needs and the past roles tasks in depth. Along with the multiple Infra related architecture scenarios, with in-depth knowledge on Cloud technology. Then only they can analyze the IAC requirements clearly to write the code and test it. This is the domain analysis and design activity they need to consider apart from the Cloud technology learning.

5. We can also see the Storage engineer role. All the Cloud vendors have the Cloud Storage services. With them mundane tasks creation/maintenance is vanished. Hence this role also will not exist.

IT-infra-Roles

IT-SDLC-Roles

The below video has the discussion on: A) What IT Roles can vanish after migrating to Cloud? B) How the roles/tasks are being transformed to Cloud through serverless computing technology ? C) Why anybody can learn and do the past Infra roles with Cloud ? D) What all they need to learn ? E) How the organizations can demand an employee to convert into modern technology before taking a decision for a pink slip serving ?
Finally, what are the following roles and their tasks:
Traditional Infrastructure building roles:
1.Network Admin/Engineer
2.System Administrator
3.Database Administrator
4. Deployment Engineer

Technical Roles:
1.Developer
2.Test Engineer/Analyst

F) Among the above which role can pickup faster the Cloud/DevOps Automation technology ?
G) Then How these roles can perform in Cloud  with faster deployment ?
H) Why and how the manpower reduction happen after Cloud implementation ?

I) Why do you need to learn from the experienced IT mentors to transform into modern technology ?

K) Some people say, they can learn by self. How much they can learn and cope-up with the current market needs on various technologies to settle in modern technology ? [refer to point#5 in this blog].

L) Why do you need to spend/invest  more money to re-settle in the modern technology ?

Note: Along with this video, there are multiple blogs I have published with Videos links to make awareness to the IT Professionals. You see those blogs from this site itself.

For further understanding please read the below text:

In the current IT World Cloud computing became regular practice for any IT Professional. Any cloud services we use, we need to know the current/traditional infrastructure setup. But every IT professional may not have that background/knowledge to understand. Because in this industry each of us played  different roles.

The Infra activities handled IT Professional only will come to know this knowledge and will have experience. But the industry needs every IT employee need to know this knowledge apart from the Cloud service provider [Ex: AWS, Azure, GC, etc..] products operations. [Eventhough, if you are a certified Solutions architect with that Cloud service provider.]

Then only whoever the professionals are certified they will be able to use these products/services and implement them under cloud setup. Hence the Infra domain knowledge or experience is mandated for every IT professional who is working for Cloud services or in that infra setup. I have been hearing during Cloud professionals recruitment the interviewers are keeping some questions on this area also. If one understand the Network domain setup then only they will be able to design the Cloud architecture. Hence more employers are worried to have this domain knowledge with the Certified and recruited Cloud professionals.

I have started a Cloud Practices group to educate/share the IT professionals with this domain knowledge. The below link can be used to join/apply:

AWS: What is AWS IAM Role and how it works ?

When we setup the new projects/functional groups In traditional infra we used to follow a heirarchy of roles as per the organization. When the IT systems access is required the sysadmin/infra team used to follow the similar setup.

When we come to AWS Cloud setup, we need to follow the similar setup, which is called Identity Access Management [IAM].

The following videos have the detailed discussion on IAM usage and its function with lab demos.

Note:
I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/

Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of it on the candidate what he/she has ?

In my coaching I concentrate to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience by the participant rather than pushing the course to them. Verify the videos.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview.
Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners.

AWS: Do you think, User IDs of IAM and EC2 are the same ?

When we talk about user ids in AWS or any Cloud some [Non-AWS Practiced] people feel user ids of IAM and EC2s are the same. But not!

  1. IAM user ids are made to access particular services of AWS Platform through some of the groups Privileges. These Groups are embeded with AWS policies to have access on the services.
  2. Where as EC2 is a Virtual Machine [can be either Linux OS or Windows server]. It needs the users to access. Like your physical machines have the used ids, the VM also has them.

AWS: What is CloudFormation ?

Watch this video for CF introduction:

This video has the demo on Cloudformation with IAC to create a simple EC2.

https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/2328450437268264/

Please note; every Cloud/DevOps/Test Engineer need to drive the infra setup tasks through IAC scripts only, when they are advanced in infra setup understanding. For every infra setup tasks they should be able to step down to develop these IAC scripts by using different tools. In AWS, we can use CF, Terraform and Ansible very easily for the medium level config scripts building.

https://vskumar.blog/2019/07/26/aws-usage-of-cloudformation-templates-1-wp/

For a jumpstart of learning process, I have started building some videos on understanding the Infra scripts process through CF Templates with POCs/demos. Following link has these videos to watch and do self practice with CF.

Please follow my videos : https://business.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/

Once you are perfect you can choose any of the Infra CM Tools to write scripts and run for automated infra setup.

The samples are made with the below infra setup scenarios:

5. Cloud Defects:What could be the Reasons for traditional networks design defects – towards conversion into VPC ? [A video Discussion]

We have been designing and implementing the traditional networks for about an half decade.

But each of us used to design with our own thoughts or within the given delivery time we used to take short cuts to implement them without following the industry standards. The current IT governance has been grown incrementally into IT industry by doing numerous process improvements by tons of years of experiences.

Now, when we are trying to move the existing systems into cloud the top component need to be analyzed well, which is for Network domains in an organization. So obviously 80% of the networks were not designed as per the current standards. But when we observer the Cloud Services their VPCs are designed by following current standards. So for the current Cloud professionals, there will be a gap in understanding the traditional setup and the VPC planning/designing/implementing successfully.

In the below video these were discussed in some aspects, in a mentoring session towards network conversion and design of VPC.

So now, from the below chart; we will see what kind of defects can be created and the reasons under different management and team practices, and the work culture lacking scenarios.

If you are working in Cloud projects the below video might be for you to scale up with coaching and mentoring on AWS Solutions usage.

Read the above video description also.

One might have AWS-SAA certificate. But they need the domain knowledge also on how/where/when to use these AWS services with an in-depth gap analysis. So this coaching gives you that kind of feeling after completion. If you are really keen and ready to spend weekly 15+ hrs for self practice, this might be suitable to scale up in the Cloud era.

https://vskumar.blog/2019/10/22/2-cloud-defectswhat-kind-of-defects-can-be-created-without-session-management-in-elb-cloud/

So now, we will see as per this blog subject what kind of defects can be created under the below scenario:

Assume the a Cloud engineer joined newly in a job. He might be a fresher for IT and learnt AWS through either online or class room training sessions. He is highly self motivated and proactive. Being fresher with less CTC the employer hired him, instead of taking the infra experienced IT professional with costly CTC. Now they have given the below tasks to complete in a certain hours.

  1. Need to create N number of EC2s and install some software in Y days.
  2. Need to connect those EC2s using SSH and to test the loaded software.

What the Cloud Engineer has done with his mind set and by having limited infra exposure/knowledge ?

a) He created each EC2 separately. Because he did not practice on Boot strapping or IAC options.

b) He installed the required software in each EC2 by using SSH connection. And tested them once they are configured. Which is typical traditional sysadmin activity. But he is using the VMS.

What is the expectation from the Cloud expert/manager [who doesn’t give guidance, but he is more capable in tracking the work ? – we can see many such managers in IT field as trackers to crack the work culture!! ] ?

  1. The manager expect him to write and run a JSON or YAML script to do all the above tasks.
  2. And he expected him to do in a day or two.
  3. But this poor fresher has taken a week time to complete the job by sitting on week-end also.
  4. The management has planned to allocate the planned EC2s on 4th day to distribute to the technical staff where they are going to use for some other technical tasks. But its delayed due to a fresher is deployed for this activitiy.

Now, you as An Experienced Cloud Architect what you are suppose to do while recruiting a fresher for this kind of work?

Are you going to check by which tool he can write JSON or YAML scripts in AWS ?

Is he capable of creating EC2s with bootstrapping options also to install libs and software to save time ?

Is he capable of using Cloudformation template [by creating] along with Ansible to setup small EC2 servers/configurations ?

Do you think if he knows the above tools usage only, is it enough to do the work or plan/design the script properly ?

Are you going to check the Domain infra knowledge also with the candidate ?

Is the planned person and the executor are the same ?

If they are not the same, how the communication happened in between them ?

To meet the schedule; with what techniques/tools to use in the project, was it kept in the Cloud design specifications ? Was it communicated to the Cloud Engineer ?

Was it communicated clearly to the low level resources in the project [Like; Cloud Engineers, Architects, etc] on the design and tools usage as a standard ?

Did they estimate the competency of the existing resources ?

Are there any initial training/mentoring/knowledge transfer activities are lacking ?

So, finally what are the management related process defects you can find in this scenario as an experienced Cloud Architect ?

Obviously, many such kind of questions can strike to the mind set of experienced Infra professionals to dig the root causes of these defects. Such kind of situations are happening across Cloud projects and they are increasing the projects cost instead of decreasing. In many news or blogs we have been watching the management is spending more than the past infra cost for Cloud, so what for ? Because of having not the work culture matured managers in IT ?

So, one need to rethink on their environment also for further progress/process improvements. Even in case of a fresher, an experienced person would have been deployed also he might have done the same way due to lack of IAC/Infra creation knowledge. This comes from the experience or exposure or practice only. Hence the Cloud professionals including so called managers are also mandated to learn these techniques.

Some of them in the past I have observed during my Cloud consulting activities. With that knowledge only I have simulated these defects from my management experience. But these are the realistic issues appearing in Cloud projects.

I have given some solutions related to some of the above technical needs through videos/blogs where a fresher can learn well:

I wrote a blog and connected one sample video for Boot strapping:

2. Cloud Defects:What kind of defects can be created without session management in ELB/Cloud ?

AWS-Session management-AD-FS

If you want to know the definition of session management, you can go through my blog and videos:

https://vskumar.blog/2019/03/13/14-aws-what-is-session-management-in-elb/

So now, as per this blog subject what kind of defects can be created under the below scenario:

Assume the Cloud Architect assumed the Application level session management is applied in their applications as per the development standards. So with this standards, they can track the sessions used by different users. So the ELB Session management is disabled under cost savings by the Cloud architect. But unfortunately, the past developers not followed the session management standards across the business modules. So when user is trying to create a checkout process in an e-commerce site, his session was appearing with timeout. So this should be the defect from the past application design level defect. So, the business users complained it as it is moved to Cloud the application is not working. So the issues were triggered against the Cloud team rather than the right communication was not followed in the project. The responsible CTO/CIO people never implemented such kind of review process to make sure the application details to supply in all aspects, for right Cloud services designing. Their focus was more on cost savings!!

My questions for Cloud Architect and their management is:

  1. Why did the Cloud Architect assumed without confirming from the right technical people on the session management used for all the modules ?
  2. Do the Cloud Architect need to know the application details also himself without having support from the top people ?
  3. When the Cloud Architect designed the cloud services plan, why the right [top] people did not review and realize it ?
  4. What kind of IT Governance was implemented or enforced here by the CTO/CIO with Cloud Transformation projects ?
  5. Did the management feel they need to safeguard all the role people in IT or just by putting pressure they do create the defects and finally they realize the process defects ? And ultimately pinks slips will be ready for wrong people to get fired ?
  6. What is the management maturity we can find in such kind of situations ?
  7. Did the management realize the Cloud roles correctly and completely and they supported them in this scenario ?

Caution to Cloud professionals:

Hope you as Cloud Architect, could catch what are the specifications you need to ask upfront when they ask you to create such kind of infra in Cloud. You and your team need to realize the Cloud professional role is not just to operate the screen flows as we learnt from the typical Cloud Trainings!! You need to understand the application domain knowledge also.

To know the real specifications for your role visit:

1. Cloud Defects:How the Cloud Professionals can Create the costly defects and the reasons ?

With reference to the booming Cloud Market [refer to some of my videos/blogs] and the Conversions to Cloud by different business organizations; Globally millions of IT professionals were mandated to learn the Cloud technologies to sustain their jobs in IT.

When we talk about these converted IT Professionals, they were forced to move into Cloud due to the sustainability of their job.

At the same time their employers are also enforced by their management to accelerate the cost savings for IT infra.

So how they do the planning for Cloud ?

On top there can be a CTO/CIO plans it to convert into Cloud. And they have the complete knowledge of the infrastructure with reference to their technology being used for business systems.

There will be Cloud Architects, they are responsible to create the Cloud implementation design.

Then the plan and the design is released to the Cloud engineers by allocating the tasks.

In between due to lack of [turn around] time, the Cloud engineers are pressured to create the environments. Here everybody can find one point, the management did not plan the knowledge transfer perfectly to the low level people. Then they can create many costly defects as per their knowledge and experience. So there is no ‘uniformity was followed’ in this case. It need not be a cost effective solution the Cloud Architects or Cloud Engineers have done. And there was no review also done. Once the monthly Cloud bill is arrived they will realize on it. Then they can realize the costly burning/bill happened by comparing to their planned cost saving on Infra. So this way they are enforced to track the resources who created these costly defects.

The following picture has got this kind of analysis. And what are the basic reasons the Architects and Engineers are not able to understand the domain conversion scenarios, when the management plans and release it for implementation.

Here we need to remember, every IT Professional need to realize that one fine day the current size of the resources will not be there in any project due to Cloud and the automation implementation is happening.

So the self matured professional need to realize where they are lacking and step down to learn those from experts, on war footing basis to prove and safeguard their jobs in IT.

If you want to learn the details, I have discussed in the below video with the relevant coaching on AWS-SAA course also.

DevOps: What are the Differences between containers and VMs ?

What are the Differences between containers and VMs ?

During Deployment activity phase the environment building is part of the DevOps practices.

In traditional method we used to spend lot of time for this task. But when it came with VMs and containers, it is easy and in minutes the environments can be prepared using the IAC.

The containers became very popular for building the test environments. Let us say you want to build a MYSQL server, the solutions is; simply try to understand its environment and pull one Docker image which has the MYSQL. Then use it in that network environment.

When we talk about the VMs and Containers one need to understand their differences. I have made a video for learners:

If you are a Docker learner, then try to build the MYSQL container from the below specifications:

Comparision of AWS and GCP Certifications

AWS and GCP Conducts different certification for different roles playing.

Being the top Cloud services competitors globally, they have different prioritized technologies implemented for Cloud services. AWS is matured enough by occupying the cloud gamut as 1st service provider in implementing them, years together. Where as GCP is accelerating their services year on year on the technologies those are in demand. Similarly it has evolved with professional certifications also accordingly.

DevOps: Advanced DevOps Practices/Processes-2 [DevSecOps]

In continuation of my previous blog on; DevOps:Advanced DevOps Practices/Processes-1:
Following are the some of the DevOps concepts, a Practitioner need to practice.

What is the goal of DevSecOps?

The goal of DevSecOps is to decrease time to market while cutting the costs of development and remediation, while improving overall application security.

How it can be performed ?:

If the appropriate, automated security vulnerability and configuration scanning tools are deployed, developers with varying skill sets and experience can find and fix security problems as they occur.

How to motivate developers?:

Teaching developers on secure coding practices is still essential,  as it is monitoring and protecting the production environment.

How to achieve it?:

By integrating automated application security testing as part of the moving into DevSecOps practices, teams can complete a DevOps security checking that addresses the challenges associated with developing secure applications in agile environments.

How to apply checkpoints?:

There are tools to verify the above checks.

I have discussed some of the relevant points on this subject in the below video session:

GCP- Associate Cloud Engineer Certification course

AWS: Usage of CloudFormation Templates for IAC

Through this blog I would like to demonstrate on CloudFormation [CF] templates usage with the IAC.

I have observed in Cloud and DevOps teams, many of them are non-programming background. But when the Infra setup requirement comes into their task following questions will arise:

  1. How can they write the JSON/YAML/Go programming/script coding ?
  2. How can they understand the Cloud services and the domain setup knowledge ?
  3. What are the sequence of steps they need to follow, if they are being asked to setup the environments?
  4. How the VPCs need to be built ?
  5. How the Load Balancers need to be setup ?
  6. How the autoscaling and load balancing can be done in different locations to balance the traffic and maintain the infra setup consistency with low latency ?
  7. What are steps need to be followed to learn on the above process/procedures ?

AWS has given some of the infra setup the CloudFormation templates for us to try and test them. And later on to understand the Script/code of JSON/YAML to implement with any CM Tools.

Please visit the below blog for samples of YAML/JSON IAC discussion videos:

2. AWS IAC-YAML: How to work with CF for various infrastructures setup ? | Building Cloud cum DevOps Architects (vskumar.blog)

Please note; every Cloud/DevOps/Test Engineer need to drive the infra setup tasks through IAC scripts only. For every infra setup tasks they should be able to step down to develop these IAC scripts by using different tools. In AWS, we can use CF, Terraform and Ansible very easily for the medium level config scripts building.

For a jumpstart of learning process, I have started building some videos on understanding the Infra scripts process through CF Templates with POCs/demos. Following links have these videos to watch and do self practice with CF.

Once you are perfect you can choose any of the Infra CM Tools to write scripts and run for automated infra setup.

How to Create a simple WordPress website with CloudFormation[CF] in AWS ? :
In this POC exercise, we are using the Readily available template from the CloudFormation[CF] stacks with detailed lab steps in the below attached Video. There are two categories of WP infra building CF Templates mentioned in the CF stacks. In this example initially, I have taken the simple setup without Load balancer and Autoscale setup. The specifications/guidelines are given clearly to follow through video.

I hope you have seen my AWS Coaching specimen on the URL: https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/

Let us also be aware: Due to lacks of certified professionals are available globally in the market on AWS, to differentiate them on their needs/selection, most of the clients are asking on the real experience gained or aware of IAC. They give a Console and ask you to setup a specific Infra setup in AWS.

In my coaching I focus on the candidates to gain the real Cloud Architecture implementation experience rather than pushing the course with screen operations only to complete. Through my posted videos you can watch this USP.

Contact for your real Cloud experiences learning and gaining with me and crack the interviews to get offers in AWS Roles globally or even you can transition to the role in the same company after facing the client interview/selection process. Which is very easy.

Please connect me on FB and have a discussion on your background and the needs/goals. I am looking for the serious learners only by having dedicated time. If you are a busy resource on the projects please note; you can wait to become free to learn. One need to spend time consistently on the practice. Otherwise its going to be in no-use.

Are you working as Cloud Architect or dealing with them ? Then read/check the below content for different issues with the role.

  1. Are you frustrated with light knowledged people for Cloud Architect Consulting ?
  2. Are they not capable to understand the legacy infra methods towards Cloud migration ?
  3. Are you keen in getting competent Cloud Architect Consulting  skills ?
  4. Do you want to build as Competent Cloud Architect by self or for your company ?
  5. Are you not able to do a Gap analysis from TRADITIONAL infra to AWS services and always backouts are happening and your management is upset for budget ?
  6. Did you study/observe the reasons for all the above ?
  7. Why the pink slips became common for Cloud solution architects ?
  8. Are you keen in converting the role into Cloud Technical Account Manager [TAM], for end to end Cloud projects delivery ?

If you are an independent Cloud consultant and working with multiple clients for migrations planning, designing this might give value addition for excelling your services.

For some of the high level points analysis, watch this consultation video and further information/coaching please connect me in FB and Linkedin [https://www.linkedin.com/in/vskumaritpractices/] to gain rapid speed in your AWS consulting work.

This is one on one coaching with the discussed TOC in the course video. Finally you will come up with a complete roadmap for a client what you need to follow as per the standards.

Before coming to me, please let you understand the real Cloud architect role description as Gartner published in the past, visit the discussion done from the below video:
https://www.facebook.com/vskumarcloud/videos/831779460496153/

To avail this coaching:

A) you should be certified and has been working on AWS solutions atleast for 2 years.

B) You should have PM experience also.

Note: You might have achieved number of AWS certifications. But with that knowledge, globally many people are not able to perform the Cloud Architect roles with the customers due to lack of infra knowledge/process/methodology. And within 3 months they are being served pink slips. So, you need to look around what you need to learn further in this competency acceleration world to become strong Cloud Architect. Remember; nobody can guide you in your job to sustain there during its execution. You need to look for alternate plans to upgrade the knowledge by special coaching. Then only you can quote for higher billing as an independent Cloud Architect solutions consultant. Hope this gives clarity for your strategic planning.
