Craftsy Case Study: Getting started with the VictorOps Transmogrifier By Samantha Haltman When VictorOps launched the Transmogrifier private beta program last November, Craftsy was eager to see what the feature was capable of. For this case study, we spoke with David Palma, DevOps Engineer at Craftsy, to hear what he had to say about his experience… “Rule creation for this feature was extremely straight forward” “VictorOps beat us to the punch.” When we found out about the new Transmogrifier feature, we were actually in the process of building something similar internally. We realized there was a serious disconnect between the alerts coming in, and the information available surrounding the alert. Implementing the Transmogrifier provided exactly what we were looking for with regards to annotations, and saved us a lot of time since we didn’t have to build this functio... (more)

DevOpsDays Rockies: An Elevated Event By Tara Calihman Last week, I had the pleasure of attending my first DevOpsDays event, held down the road from the VictorOps office in Denver.

I understood this in theory but it wasn’t until I went to my first Open Spaces session that I realized just... (more)

NOC, NOC… Who’s There? By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

By Bryce Ambraziunas In part one of this series, our COO tackles the history and purpose of the NOC. A NOC, for those who don’t know, stands for Network Operations Center and, quite simply, is how large organizations with complex systems monitor them. Early versions of the NOC came about in the early 1960’s when there was a need for humans to actively take part in noticing, and fixing, complex errors. An early NOC was opened by AT&T in New York to display switch and route information, in real-time. It’s easy to see why a NOC used to be considered essential for larger companies ... (more)

ChefConf 2015 Wrap-up By @VictorOps | @DevOpsSummit [#DevOps]

By Jason Hand Community is an area of great interest to me. As the evangelist for VictorOps, I’m tapped with many challenges and responsibilities. Not only do I try to provide useful guidance and feedback regarding VictorOps and DevOps best practices, but also bring together customers and partners with shared interest and excitement for what we are building to make on-call suck less. If there is a group in which one could model how to build a great community after, it’s Chef and this year’s ChefConf is a testament to that. Taking place in the Santa Clara Convention Center, Chef... (more)
