ElasticBox, the agile application delivery manager, announced freely available public boxes for the DevOps community. ElasticBox works with enterprises to help them deploy any application to any cloud. Public boxes are curated reference boxes that represent some of the most popular applications and tools for orchestrating deployments at scale.
Boxes are an adaptive way to represent reusable infrastructure as components of code. Boxes contain scripts, variables, and metadata to automate processes for deploying applications to any cloud infrastructure. Stitched together, boxes model complex processes like deploying or upgrading multi-tier enterprise applications.
By making these boxes publically referenceable, DevOps can now search and find references to popular application stacks, discover boxes, share and follow updates. This community is designed for DevOps to quickly find best practices for deploying the most popular applications.
Popular boxes such as MongoDB, Jenkins, NGINX, ELK, MySQL, Docker containers and more are now available at www.elasticbox.com/explore.
"Public boxes are a huge plus for the DevOps community that value open source. They serve as excellent references for deploying the most popular applications. It gives users a chance to experience ElasticBox, and gives us the ability to access and share app deployment knowledge more broadly," stated Aaron Chu, Senior Director of Technical Operations, DeNA.
"I'm happy to see ElasticBox make Jenkins part of a free public box library. Jenkins is all about making things easier for IT teams and making Jenkins itself easier to run is an important part of that. The Jenkins Box is a nice starting point for those who are new to Jenkins," said Kohsuke Kawaguchi, Jenkins founder and CTO of CloudBees.
With public boxes, visitors to the website can explore many open references for deployment. These boxes showcase best practices for the most common development stacks. Benefits include:

The @DevOpsSummit at Cloud Expo - to be held November 3-5, 2015, at the Santa Clara Convention Center in Santa Clara, California - will expand the DevOps community, enable a wide sharing of knowledge, and educate delegates and technology providers alike. Recent research has shown that DevOps dramatically reduces development time, the amount of enterprise IT professionals put out fires, and support time generally. Time spent on infrastructure development is significantly increased, and DevOps practitioners report more software releases and higher quality.

DevOps Summit Power Panel | Balancing the Three Pillars of DevOps
In this @DevOpsSummit Power Panel - moderated by Andi Mann (founder of @Sageable) - Shannon Williams, co-founder of Rancher Labs; Haseeb Budhani, co-founder and CEO of Soha; and Dalibor Siroky, Director and co-founder atPlutora; discussed how to balance these three pillars of DevOps, where to focus attention (and resources), where organizations might slip up with the wrong focus, how to manage change and risk in all three areas, what is possible and what is not, where to start, and especially how new structures, processes, and technologies can help drive a new DevOps culture.
Microservices & IoT Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit
In this Power Panel at @DevOpsSummit, moderated by Jason Bloomberg, president of Intellyx, panelists Roberto Medrano, Executive Vice President at Akana; Lori MacVittie, Evangelist for F5 Networks; and Troy Topnik, ActiveState's Technical Product Manager; and Otis Gospodnetić, founder of Sematext; peeled away the buzz and discuss the important architectural principles behind implementing IoT solutions for the enterprise. As remote IoT devices and sensors become increasingly intelligent, they become part of our distributed cloud environment, and we must architect and code accordingly. At the very least, you'll have no problem filling in your buzzword bingo cards.
Containers & Microservices Expo To Be Colocated with @DevOpsSummit Silicon Valley, November 3-5, 2015 at the Santa Clara Convention Center, CA
Containers and microservices have become topics of intense interest throughout the cloud developer and enterprise IT communities.
Microservices focuses on the business and technology of the software architecture design pattern, in which complex applications are composed of small, independent processes communicating with each other using language-agnostic APIs.
Containers are not being considered for the first time by the cloud community, but a current era of re-consideration has pushed them to the top of the cloud agenda.
Rather than just stuff an OS into a container, for example, developers and deployers should consider a spectrum of microservices and what they can do.
