Can IT admins benefit from a DevOps environment?

Source- searchdatacenter.techtarget.com If DevOps is implemented poorly, it increases the pressure on admins to deal with uncontrolled code rollouts in the operational environment, which can drain hardware resources and increase troubleshooting time. However, a good DevOps environment with all the right checks and balances in place reduces the number of mind-numbing tasks that admins face, and it provides more time for interesting, value-add tasks that help the business. DevOps also gives admins oversight of developers. Powerful DevOps tools place all the correct filters

Microservices: How to prep DevOps teams

Source- enterprisersproject.com The first reaction non-development IT people have when seeing their company’s microservice is very similar to a parent looking at their child’s art. “Oh! It’s a…what is this? A microservice? Wow… well, isn’t that something! I like how the blue, green, and red make a nice brown colour. Let’s put this on the refrigerator.” Of course, that art could be the beginnings of the next Frida Kahlo if only the parents understood. Likewise, we need to make certain that

What Happens When You Add Security to DevOps? DevSecOps

Source- informationweek.com I’ve gone head-first into the world of DevOps, and, it’s been an amazing ride. I’ve had many of my own misconceptions blown away after learning the deep culture and philosophy behind DevOps. That and surrounding myself with people who actually implement the concepts of DevOps have been absolutely enlightening as well. If you still need a primer check out my DevOps 101 article for a bit more detail. Otherwise, just remember that DevOps isn’t just two words combined together. DevOps is

Vanguard CIO: Is what you’re doing “true” agile?

Source- enterprisersproject.com Recently, I went out after work with a friend who wanted to pick my brain about agile. He had just landed a new job and his new organization was adopting agile principles. Excited for him, I began asking all kinds of questions. How frequently do they deploy software? Were they building microservices? Were they looking at public cloud? I watched his excitement drain a bit as he explained that they deploy relatively infrequently and had not discussed “breaking down the monolith” or

Grow rapidly into a continuous delivery pipeline

Source- searchitoperations.techtarget.com If the only thing colourful about your deployments is the language, evaluate canary and blue/green environments. One application engineering team found that continuous delivery (CD) makes the rapid-fire updates to a high volume of microservices orderly and manageable. But to truly reap the benefits, they must find ways to minimize the blast radius of live code and to catch and roll back anything that mars user experience (UX). Ibotta, a Denver-based mobile rewards app provider, adopted a continuous delivery

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. Microservices are the foundation of an agile architecture on which applications are built as a collection of different smaller services rather than an entire application. Among the emerging challenges is determining the best way to communicate among those lightweight services. While nearly two-thirds of the 354 companies surveyed by workflow automation

DevOps & machine learning improves app performance!

Source – devopsonline.co.uk Machine learning has been hyped (and in some cases overhyped). However, one successful DevOps use case for machine learning is application performance management. Why? Simply put, machine learning is needed to analyse the volume, velocity, and variety of big data generated by today’s dynamic application environments. By applying machine learning to identify patterns and anomalies, DevOps teams can better troubleshoot intermittent and complex problems, understand usage patterns, reduce bug rates, and improve the customer experience. What’s changed? Modern applications based on
