The rise of programmatic infrastructure and services has created a rift in the industry between business acceleration and risk aversion/mitigation. The rate at which technology teams consume, manipulate, and iterate infrastructure now far exceeds traditional security technologies. A new approach to security, a DevOps approach, can marry these aspects of business together again in amazing ways.

With systems moving to the cloud, securing network traffic is becoming more difficult using traditional hub-and-spoke architectures because the network layout might not be under your control. PagerDuty solved this problem using an IPSec mesh network. Come find out how we did it.

You've read everything on Hacker News. You've deployed a bunch of apps on Heroku. You've signed up for as many stats and APM services as you know of. You have everything you need to scale if your startup blows up, right? In this talk, we'll walk through some of the lessons we've learned the hard way growing 13x over the past 9 months.

At SignalFx, we deal with high-volume, high-resolution data from our users. This requires a high performance ingest pipeline. Over time we’ve found that we needed to adapt architectural principles from specialized fields such as HPC to get beyond performance plateaus encountered with more generic approaches.

Data-driven decision making rests, in part, on availability of high fidelity data. Presence of anomalies limits the use of data on an “as is” basis. Automatic anomaly detection is key to providing high fidelity data. We present a statistically rigorous method for automatic anomaly detection, which leverages correlations between multiple time series.
