Small Teams - Big Build Culture at NPR Digital Media
"White knuckle releases" have plagued the NPR Digital Media teams for years. Building out a solid, well-rehearsed system based on Jenkins jobs did the trick, initially. While improving on that path, lessons have been learned, release-day alarms have been sounded and systems have been forced into "DevOps-ification." Is your team small, but your builds large? Is there at least one monolith amongst your newer microservices that tends to be the beast lurking in the closet when it comes to release? For each step forward in checking Jenkins logic into a codebase do you seem to fall a step backward in your team understanding of Jenkins? NPR Digital Media is no different and is here to help!

Manage a Petabyte/Day of Artifacts Without Breaking a Sweat (or Your Infrastructure)
Optimize your workflow by using virtual disk and persistent container data volume clones for artifacts. In a typical day at Datrium, we clone a 20 GB build deliverable a thousand times while executing 12,000 tests and creating 3,500 virtual machines and containers, all generating over 1 PB of total artifacts. Fast clones provide dramatic benefits, including reduced storage requirements, improved throughput and optimal resource management. And, since each artifact clone provides the complete build and test environment, it can be used for other downstream jobs, postmortem analysis and further ad hoc testing without dirtying the original copy. Come learn how a cloning workflow can work for you!
