Docker And Kubernetes: Furthering The Goals Of DevOps Automation

Source- forbes.com Containers are a hot topic, yet production usage remains low, according to Gartner, with most enterprise container adoptions in an early phase.

Bridging the priority gap between IT and security in DevOps

Source- betanews.com Let’s start with a test. Suppose that you manage a corporate network gateway across which a critical programmed transaction is scheduled to occur in exactly one hour. Suppose further that the firewall protecting this gateway is functionally misbehaving and will almost certainly block any programmed activity with your transaction partner. This is a serious concern because your boss has reinforced to you several times the importance of this planned transaction. Your team continues to work the technical problem,

Putting Security on Par with DevOps

Source- darkreading.com DevSecOps: It’s not a very friendly acronym. It reeks of techno-babble, sounds a little military, and resists a consumer connection. But think again. This is a vital discipline that’s directly relevant to every enterprise and every individual, particularly within cloud infrastructures, and has long deserved greater attention. Maybe that’s why we’re now seeing greater research and more discussion devoted to the subject. But what’s really at stake here? And what needs to happen next? First, let’s understand the

How DevOps and Agile are influencing automation in business

Source- knowtechie.com From its humble beginnings in the software development world, Agile has now grown into the gold standard for project management and product development. Originally, Agile was a useful technique used in the IT and operations space to break down larger projects into smaller, more manageable components. As a result, the methodology has yielded shorter production times, reduced risk, and high-quality products. Agile formed the foundation upon which the world of DevOps emerged. Many people look at DevOps vs Agile as if these

Microservices Help Scale Distributed Apps, Survey Finds

Source- enterprisetech.com The ability to scale applications and get products and services out the door faster are the primary reasons DevOps teams are embracing microservices, a new survey finds.

In a DevOps evolution, there are many paths to success, but even more that lead to failure
