Monthly Snap September – NETWAYS News | Tips & Tricks | DevOps | Conferences & Trainings


Hellooooo Huuumans!!! 🙂
Autumn is here & I came to think of the most famous GOT quote “Winter is coming!!“. Well, Let’s move back to the current season – “Autumn”. Did you also have the feeling, that this was a very quick month? #Vacayisover

What happened in the NETWAYS Shop?

The New of AKCP: Battery Temp Sensor (BTTS) Time to celebrate! Our NETWAYS MonitorSilke. The brand new software version 3.32 of SMS Eagle is here! Callback URL, Autoreply, SMS forwarding, and more. Silke shared her best autumn- tips: “Wir haben aufgeräumt und aufgestockt! Neues Gude Sortiment steht im Shop zur Verfügung” (We have lots of new products from Gude in our online shop!)

What are they up to now? #Developers

#Monitoring: everything is regulated. But!! What Thomas said???  Jennifer reports on DevOpsDays Berlin 2018,  “Warum ist das jetzt wichtig und was hat das mit IT zu tun?“ Weg mit dem Schrott: Müll im Weltraum – says Marius. (Store the garbage in space?).  Michael released GitLab training v2.3.0 which includes bug fixes and new features. He also updated the material and tagged v2.3.0 .  Aleksander (our new trainee) has got some news on “Ubuntu 18.04 LTS“. Michael told us about the days away with his fellow developers at the “Franconian Alps” #DEV Retreat 2018 Recap 

How do they do this all the time? #superactive | The most awaited conference is coming soon! #OSMC

Monthly Snap June


June kept everyone busy with and excited about the Open Source Data Conference in Berlin. Eleven days before OSDC Keya started the „OSDC 2018 Countdown“. Second week of June the NETWAYS headquarter in Nuremberg was quite quiet. Everyone flew off to Berlin. Everyone? Well, not entirely… One small group of NETWAY-ers kept the NETWAYS flag flying in Nuremberg. Thankfully they had sent a great conference reporter out: Every evening Dirk summed up what had happened in „The Future of Open Source Data Center Solutions – OSDC 2018 – Day 1“ and „… 2“. He also wrote about the „Open Source Camp Issue #1“ . OSCamp will give Open Source projects a platform to present themselves to the Community. This year it started with Foreman and Graylog.
Berlin Events are over for this year, but other great events cast their shadows ahead: „Now is the time to register“ for the upcoming Open Source Monitoring Conference. OSMC takes place in Nuremberg, November 5 to 8.
There is this German saying: „Alles neu macht der Mai“ – for NETWAYS it was June: For OSMC we have created new presentations formats, learn more in „OSMC 2018: Choose what suits you!” And: Julia is new. She just started this month as Marketing Manager and introduced herself in our blogseries „NETWAYS stellt sich vor“. Also new: We have published a „Ceph Training “, as Tim is happy to announce.
At times of DSVGO for Christoph it’s time to reconsider data protection of monitoring servers. In „Einfaches verschlüsseltes Backup“ he explains how one can use GPG to encrypt an icinga2 backup. Nicole shared her thoughts on the „Microsoft and GitHub – merge conflict?“ and recommends to get your own GitLab instance, whereas Michael explains „Continuous Integration with Golang and GitLab“. „Wie überwache ich eine Cluster-Applikation in Icinga 2?“, asked Daniel being at a customer – solving the problem with a little help from his friends. Eric explains „Filter for Multiple Group Memberships in SQL“, that will become even more powerful with the upcoming Icinga Web 2 release. In „Fresh from the shelfDavid reports about command-lines with Ranger, Progress and fzf, and Dirk inspired the Open Source Community about „Contributing as a Non-Developer“. One month, so much going on… Stay tuned!

OSDC 2018 – Backstage Stories


Hello awesome people!
Curious to hear what happened behind the scenes of #OSDC? I am here to share some insights from the NETWAYS Event Team with you.
Let me start with
pre-OSDC Day – 0
June 11, 2018, Monday

A motivated and full of energy OSDC-team from NETWAYS headquarter in Nuremberg arrives at MOA Hotel in Berlin. First of all we start the preparations for welcoming our OSDC speakers and attendees. Lukas and I have a great time welcoming everyone and Markus makes sure everything is in flow!
7 p.m., MOA Hotel Bar, meet and greet: All participants and speakers meet to have delicious food and a couple of drinks together. What a fantastic pre-conference warm-up!

OSDC Day – 1
June 12, 2018, Tuesday
The conference program begins with Bernd’s kick-start to #OSDC Day 1, followed by interesting and amazing talks. We in the OSDC-team attend the lectures and update everyone who doesn’t have the chance to be at OSDC on our social media channels. It is fun to see how many people react to what happens at the conference.

In between the stunning presentations everyone enjoys the delightful coffee breaks and yummy lunch.


7 PM @ PURO Sky Lounge: The evening event surprises with a great show. The view over Berlin from 20th floor  at PURO Sky Lounge is just amazing, with sun lights breaking through the clouds, later the illuminated skyline. Everyone is mesmerised by this beautiful view of Berlin, all enjoy the outstanding food, drinks and desserts.
There could have been no better setting for the open source community to socialize.


OSDC Day – 2

After spending an awesome evening the day before everyone enjoys the second day with wonderful talks.
We are thankful to our sponsoring partners Thomas Krenn, Linux Magazin and Admin Magazine for their support and all the NETWAYers for making it happen. And here ends OSDC 2018… See you again in 2019! Save the date!
