What does DevOps do in 2018?

Source – infosecurity-magazine.com In 2018, we’re expecting DevOps to become the new norm for larger enterprise teams. This is because we’re likely to see developers on older, higher value systems implementing a more DevOps centric approach, having seen it work on projects that have traditionally been highly visible, but low value. In big enterprises in the past, DevOps practices have often been tested and trialed on projects which have low business impact. For example, in banking, teams have used DevOps

Keeping cloud-native DevOps from spinning out of control

Source – siliconangle.com Cloud-native computing environments tend to become frightfully difficult to build, provision, monitor and control. This is especially true as more containerized apps are pushed into more distributed clusters that are running on more complex multiclouds. These environments are also quite fragile, as new containerized apps carry compliance risks and may, if they run afoul of complex dependencies, disrupt interoperability to legacy apps and infrastructure. Lessening these burdens and mitigating these risks is central to the jobs of DevOps
