Continuous Integration

Why not every DevOps strategy is worthy of your attention

Source – techtarget.com If the current hype cycle is any indication, the industry must be approaching peak DevOps. It simply would not be possible for the tech media, along with online seminars, social media and conference sessions, to provide any more opportunities for advocates and evangelists to offer up DevOps advice. And in light of this onslaught of opinions, we should note that some of this advice is significantly better than the rest. In fact, much of the DevOps strategy we’re

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

A software defined network requires reinventing IT devops

Source – networkworld.com It’s common for a newly released application to have a few bugs in it. Customers may grumble, and IT service requests may increase, but life goes on and people will figure out how to work around the issues. The same cannot be said for a network software upgrade. If the network goes down, everything grinds to a halt, and service to employees and customers ceases. In the old hardware network model, an operator relied on three to four

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

What is DevSecOps? Developing more secure applications

Source – itworld.com The simple premise of DevSecOps is that everyone in the software development life cycle is responsible for security, in essence bringing operations and development together with security functions. DevSecOps aims to embed security in every part of the development process. It is about trying to automate core security tasks by embedding security controls and processes early in the DevOps workflow (rather than being bolted on at the end). For example, this could be the case when migrating to

How to work through the four complicated DevOps stages

Source – techtarget.com For thousands of years, we have been devising ways to cross bodies of water. Historically, our attempts were crude — makeshift rafts and rickety, ferrylike vessels. So, we started building bridges, albeit basic ones. Ferries and bridges still need upkeep as weather and increasing traffic require intelligent decision-making and technology to optimize transit. Let’s apply this to DevOps. Like bridging two shorelines together, DevOps involves efficiently linking an organization’s business idea to its market. For an organization to
