Altoros is bringing its knowledge to the biggest and greatest event of the Cloud Foundry community: the Cloud Foundry Summit in Santa Clara, CA. Thousands of attendees get together every year to share their experience, as well as learn, connect, and discuss Cloud Foundry and DevOps in general.

This year, three training sessions will be held, explaining how to deploy and manage Cloud Foundry, go cloud-native with microservices-based architectures, operate the platform with BOSH, etc. The trainings will be conducted by qualified instructors from Altoros, Pivotal, and Stark & Wayne—the companies that work with these tools on a daily basis. Read the details below.

8 Pro Tips for Using Concourse CI with Cloud Foundry

Alexander Lomov

concourse-ci-architecture-features-and-usage-logo

There are at least a dozen continuous integration solutions out there, but the majority of them are challenging to learn, scale, and debug. Most importantly, few of them were designed with pipelines in mind. Not able to find a tool that could handle something as massive and complex as Cloud Foundry, Pivotal decided to write their own. This resulted in Concourse CI, a user-friendly continuous delivery technology that focuses on pipelines, is easy to scale, runs anywhere, and works with anything.

From this post, you will learn how Concourse CI differs from other similar products, how it works, and how it can help you to “nitrocharge” your own projects.

IoT Prototype: Light Monitoring with NodeRED Components in Predix

Ilya Drabenia

GE-Predix-Industrial-Lighting-MonitorNodeRED is an open source IoT tool that helps to reduce development efforts when working with hardware, APIs, and services. However, how long exactly would it take to build something tangible? What if we used it with a PaaS?

Our team has created some NodeRED components for GE Predix when working on a prototype for a light monitoring system. Here is a detailed account of the project, including its source code, data flow, hardware details, etc.

TensorFlow is an open-source deep learning library originally developed by Google. The solution’s flexible architecture allows for deploying computations to one or more CPUs or GPUs in a desktop, server, or mobile device with a single API.

Altoros created a prototype of a multi-user TensorFlow service on OpenPOWER machines with NVIDIA GPUs and Docker. The prototype was demonstrated at the GPU Technology Conference in April 2016.

Collecting Time Series Data with Predix (a Golang API Wrapper Included)

Stas Turlo

predix-time-series-demo

In this post, we show how to work with the Predix Time Series API using our Go library. We’ve created the wrapper to provide a more convenient way to interact with the Time Series service from Go: successful API queries return native Go structs that can be used immediately, with no need for type assertions.
