Integrate DevOps and containers with simple tool adjustments

Source – techtarget.com Organizations adopt DevOps methodologies to reduce application development time and improve code quality, consistency and security. They adopt containers for many of the same reasons. A typical implementation pulls together multiple tools for development and deployment tasks in a chain. It must be flexible enough to accommodate: different programming languages, such as C, Python and Go; application targets, both mobile and web; and diverse deployment platforms, including virtual servers, cloud services and containers. Given the ever-increasing popularity of

Database automation drives DevOps into the persistence layer

Source – theserverside.com The adoption of highly scriptable cloud-based technologies, along with the emergence of continuous integration (CI) and continuous deployment (CD) tools, has created an environment in which every operations process should be scriptable and all manual processes targeted for automation. Organizations with a DevOps approach to application lifecycle management should automate every process imaginable, but they often hit a wall when they reach the persistence layer. Emerging technologies have the potential to make that limitation disappear. Apply DevOps lessons

Three Keys to Aligning Digital and DevOps

Source – news.sys-con.com On first glance, Digital Transformation and DevOps seem to be separate, disconnected endeavors – especially once you realize that Digital Transformation is more about aligning the organization with changing customer needs and desires, rather than software. DevOps, in contrast, appears to be all about the code – how to build, maintain, and update it more quickly. Yet this view of DevOps also misses the bigger picture, as the movement is more of a cultural and organizational change that

How DevOps Principles Are Being Applied to Networking

Source – infoq.com Practices from the DevOps world are being adopted into managing networking services. Vendor hardware, configuration tools and deployment modes have eased programmable configuration and automation of network devices and functions. Some recommendations on how to adopt network automation practices include looking at networks-as-code (along the lines of infrastructure-as-code), orchestration as part of CI/CD pipelines, using network functions that can be deployed in smaller units like containers, applying chaos engineering principles to network services delivery, and measuring and predicting
