DevOps requires automation and testing to ensure application security

Source – techproresearch.com DevOps is known for continuous delivery and rapid iteration – almost the exact opposite of enterprise security, which can be seen as slow-moving and overly cautious. As more companies move toward DevOps as a means of delivering and maintaining applications, security becomes critical to plug gaps and prevent data breaches–especially in the continuous delivery pipeline, which can introduce more holes for hackers to wriggle into. Experts advise carefully designing the delivery pipeline and testing everything as thoroughly as

Effective DevOps hinges on automating a continuous delivery pipeline

Source – theserverside.com An organization has to be fully committed to an automated testing strategy if it wants to do continuous delivery right. But DevOps adopters need to be forewarned, as it’s not a process to be undertaken by the light of heart. Continuous delivery means exactly what the name implies. It means putting together a continuous delivery pipeline that is fully automated and will take recently compiled code and move that code straight into production — just so long as

Continuous Delivery with VSTS and Jenkins

Source – stackoverflow.com I’m trying to get continuous delivery going with Jenkins (building, deploying) and VSTS (source control). This is the desired workflow: a developer branches off master, makes changes, creates a pull request another developer reviews the PR and eventually merges it into master some system (Jenkins or VSTS) detects that a PR was merged into master and… increments a version number stored in a file within the repo commits the version change back to master builds deploys I was

Docker for Continuous Delivery: The Basics

Source – tech.cars.com we have begun to leverage Docker for building our Node.js middleware applications and front end code. This originally came out of necessity since we had some repositories dependent on version 4 of Node and others on 6, but only 4 installed on the Jenkins agents. Rather than install both versions of Node and toggle them using a node version manager like n or, worse yet, using Jenkins tags to have some agents with one version and some with

Continuous Delivery with Kubernetes the Hard Way

Source – infoq.com This post will discuss how to build up an architecture for continuous delivery from simple to complicated. At each point we’ll see the limitations of the simpler approaches, and justify adding complexity and/or refactoring the architecture. The ultimate approach described here is the approach that the Weaveworks team has found works best for them. Continuous delivery Continuous delivery is when software is produced in a way that allows it to be released little and often, rather than in

Continuous Integration and Delivery Require Continuous Cost Control

Source – business2community.com Today, we propose a new concept to add to the DevOps mindset: Continuous Cost Control. In DevOps, speed and continuity are king. Continuous Operations, Continuous Delivery, Continuous Integration. Keep everything running and get new features in the hands of users quickly. For some organizations, this approach leads to a mindset of “speed at any cost”. Especially in the era of easily consumable public cloud, this results in a habit of wasted spend and blown budgets – which may,

7 Highly Effective Continuous Delivery Principles

Source – devops.com If you’re in the IT space and you weren’t born yesterday, then you understand the need for speed. Development and release cycles are now faster than ever as companies implement continuous integration and continuous delivery (CD). Browsers and social media sites, for example, are doing multiple releases a day, and organizations that want to keep up in the information age are implementing continuous delivery. But to ensure successful continuous delivery, there are continuous delivery principles every organization should

The Role of QA Testing in Continuous Delivery

Source – rainforestqa.com With more traditional develop-first-then-test models, the rate at which you can merge or ship codes depends on how fast you can test it. Every new or updated feature must go through the cycle. As a result, you can only move as fast as your QA process allows. That’s why in order to do continuous delivery, you need to adopt an equally continuous QA process. How QA Impacts Continuous Delivery It’s much cheaper and faster to fix bugs that

Continuous delivery book asserts automation is key to effective DevOps

Source – theserverside.com The installation and use of a CI server is a standard in any IT department that is bold enough to throw around the term DevOps, but simply having a Jenkins or Concourse server running jobs every hour or two doesn’t mean you’re doing continuous integration right. “I’d say that continuous integration is nowadays a commodity, up to the point where people actually have forgotten what it actually means. People are using integration servers just to do a regular
