What is DevOps?

DevOps in previous decades had traditionally operated within a silo, isolated from the larger IT group. Agile development practices, infrastructure and operations, have brought a new relationship to the forefront.  DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.

 

What are DevOps Practices?

Continuous Integration

A practice in which development teams merge code
changes into a central repository on a regular basis, the automated builds and tests are run. This method allows developers to address bugs quicker, improve software quality and reduce the time it takes to release new software updates.

  •  

Continuous Delivery

A software practice in which code changes are automatically tested, build and prepared for a release to production. Co-existing with continuous integration by deploying all code changes to a testing environment, then a production environment.

Micro Services

A modern approach to building software in which
application are build a set of small services, each with a single service
purpose. You can use different frameworks or programming languages to write micro services and deploy them independently, as a single service, or as a group of services.

Infrastructure of Code

Infrastructure as code is the process of managing and provisioning
computer data centers through machine-readable definition files, rather than physical hardware configuration or interactive configuration tools.

Monitoring and Logging

By capturing, categorizing and analyzing data and logs organizations can understand better how changes or updates will impact users. Active monitoring is necessary in a world of 24/7 service availability to prevent unexpected outages and proactively monitor for issues.

Collaboration

The use of DevOps tools and automation establishes collaboration by physically bringing together the workflow and responsibilities of development and operations.

 

Industry tools we use:

  • Ansible
  • Chef
  • Puppet
  • Jenkins
  • Gradle
  • Git
  • Bamboo
  • Docker
  • Nagios
  • Raygun
