About

Black Ops is the blog of a mostly-sane DevOps guy called disco, who sometimes goes incognito as a mild-mannered photographer named Mark Troyer.

The idea behind Black Ops is that server downtime must be eliminated in all its form, through extraordinary rendition, enhanced interrogation and incarceration in classified black sites if necessary.

Ok, really it’s a blog about Operations, DevOps, Monitoring, Analytics and the (probably more than) occasional off-topic rant.

And the usual disclaimer: opinions posted here are mine and mine alone, they certainly do not reflect those of my employer, my friends or family (who still have no idea what it is I do for a living), or those people not crazy enough to work in Ops. Maybe they reflect your opinions, but you can’t have them, they’re mine!
