In theprevious article, we looked at one way to create a custom operator that manages the IRIS instance state. This time, we’re going to take a look at a ready-to-go operator, InterSystems Kubernetes Operator (IKO).Official documentation will help us navigate the deployment steps.
This is a continuation of my story about the development of my project isc-tar started in the first part.
Just having tests is not enough, it does not mean that you will run tests after all changes. Running tests should be automated, and when you cover all your functionality with tests, everything should work well after any change in any place. And Continuous Integration (CI) helps to keep the code and deployment procedure with as fewer bugs as possible and automates the routine procedures, like publishing releases.
I use GitHub to store the source code. And some time ago GitHub started to work on its own CI/CD platform and named it GitHub Actions. It is not widely available, yet. You have to be signed as a beta tester for this feature, as I did. GitHub Actions uses quite a different way how to deal with a build workflow. What is important that Github Actions allows to use Docker, and it’s quite easy to customize available actions. And interesting that GitHub Actions is really much bigger than any classic CI like we have in Travis, Circle or Gitlab CI and so on. You can find more in the official documentation.
An exciting position has arisen for a Junior Application Support Analyst in an established support team. The role will suit candidates looking to enter, or are at the start of their career in, the software industry who want to provide good customer service, enjoy finding solutions for problems and are enthusiastic about software and technology. http://codas.com

I am just recently announced my project isc-tar. But sometimes it is not less interesting what’s behind the scene: how it was built, how it works and what happens around the project. Here is the story:
After running an extensive block of daily statistics my IRISTEMP has expanded dramatically. But FreeSpace shows 97% unused and FREE space. How can I shrink IRISTEMP in runtime without shutdown and manual intervention (which was the traditional approach)
I'm almost running out of disk space so I want to move 1 DB to a different hard drive. It's a rather simple but lengthy action during a shutdown of IRIS. But is this somehow possible under runtime in a stand-alone installation? I'm looking for kind of a "local drive failover"
A lot of developers like to work with Studio and have been looking into source code version control such as GIT or into enabling modern development workflows like CICD or DevOps processes.
This article describe an elementary solution to get you started in CICD and DevOps, even if you are not yet ready to move to Atelier or forth coming VS Code approach which enable client side source code version control.
Very recently Docker showed a very new feature added to their Docker Desktop tool. It was a good way to start using Docker on macOS and Windows, and they also released the same tool for Linux as well. And new feature Extensions add an ability to extend this GUI application with some extra abilities from extensions.
We have a need to track Database changes over time - down to the SQL level of granularity if possible. Such as: User xyz runs routine ^abc and we get something similar to a changelog that tells us: table A had this value updated, insert, update etc....
Is that possible using IRIS level tools (Audit Log, Journal File, etc...) , is there a way to convert the global sets and kills from the journals into SQL level changes?
Flyway is a open source product used to develop database code to migration, ddl version control, automate database procedures, etc. It is the most used product to do DevOps automation procedures to database. Do you consider create iris support to flyway?
In our team, there are several developers working in parallel on different projects. To ensure this distributed collaboration and high-quality code reviews, we rely on version control with Git. Our challenge is to harmonize the unique characteristics of InterSystems products and the possibilities of Git and Docker.
