Origin of Devops :
“DevOps” as a term was first coined in 2009 by Patrick Debois from Belgium, who became one of its chief proponents.
What is Devops?
DevOps is a combination of software development and operations—and as its name suggests, it’s a melding of these two disciplines in order to emphasize communication, collaboration, and cohesion between the traditionally separate developer and IT operations teams.
DevOps methodology identifies the interdependence between two groups. By integrating these functions as one team or department, DevOps helps an organization deploy software more frequently, while maintaining service stability and gaining the speed necessary for more innovation
Principles of Devops
The principles of DevOps are Iterative, Incremental, Collaboration, Quantification, automation, integration and Holistic . Lets discuss below few of the key features of DevOps.
Collaboration between the two departments stands at the very base of the DevOps operations. While it does require cross-functional training and discipline as well as may result in the changing of predefined roles, such collaboration ultimately leads to higher efficiency and effectiveness.
It is necessary to have a scale on whose basis a practice and its effects can be judged. By quantifying the number of deployments, failures, time taken for each deployment, up time etc before employing DevOps, you can successfully judge the impact and improvement of DevOps on your work culture and environment.
While the developing department generally has a high level of automation, we don’t observe the same with the operations side. By integrating the same level of automation in both departments, we achieve a level of consistency and efficiency across the board that would not otherwise be possible.
Holistic system means thinking about the entire system and the ecosystem around it.
A few DevOps practices include:
- Self-service configuration
- Automated provisioning
- Continuous build
- Continuous integration
- Continuous delivery
- Automated release management
- Incremental testing
Benefits of Devops
Companies that incorporate DevOps practices can deliver with maximum speed, functionality, and innovation. Below are some of the benefist
- Increase Customer Satisfaction & Retention
- Increase Business Efficiency
- Improve Response Time
- Increase Ops alignment to business goals
- Reduced Cost over time
- Improve Business Agility
- Better Employee Productivity & Satisfaction
- Faster delivery of new features
- Better release control & versioning
- More frequent software releases
- Better development velocity
- Reduce Time for Action
- Better collaboration amongst project teams
- Reduced IT Costs
- Better Productivity
- Automated server configuration reduces time window for resource management from days to minutes.
Tools used in Devops
In the world of devops there involves different tools in release like (Docker, Jenkins), Configuration management (puppet, chef, ansible), virtualization, monitoring, and containerization (openstack, AWS) and many more.
If you aren’t adopting DevOps practices in your own technology projects, then you may be wasting time and increasing the risk of delay on your technology projects and costly technical debt.
DevOps is easiest to implement early on in a technology project’s life cycle. The longer you wait, the more effort will be required to re-work DevOps into your workflow.
