What is DevOps? :
DevOps is the technology that is developed with an idea of putting together the two major components of developing software in every Software Development company. This technology is developed to establish an alliance between the Software Development Programmers and the Information Technology Professionals.
The major reason for bringing in the concept of DevOps is for improving the speed of developing, testing and releasing, making it as early as possible and getting the maximum result out of that. Through this, we may apparently conclude that this is surely going to make up a sheer bonding between the two mandatory fields of a successful company in the Software Development Industry.
In the above image, we can observe that there is a collaboration that is established between the development team and the production team, so as to plan, monitor, develop, test and release it into the market.
In a proper technical context, DevOps can be defined as follows,
“DevOps can be defined as the cooperation existing between the Development and the Operations staff that put together all the hard work in Designing, Planning, Developing, Testing and Releasing the product into the real world”
History Of DevOps:
The DevOps movement has started from the Agile Conference 2008 in the discussion of “Agile Infrastructure”. The term DevOps was brought up from the series of days called the “DevOps-days” starting in 2009 in Belgium.
After the DevOps concepts started being understood by the users or the organizations working on those concepts, its importance has grown at a huge rate. This rapid increase has turned on a platform for the evolution of the advancements that are made in this concepts. The major tangential movements that are brought into existence were,
Features Of DevOps:
There are many features that captivate the eyes of the user or the organization working on it. These can be listed out as,
1. DevOps Security.
3. DevOps in Multitasking and much more.
Considering these features as the major ones of this technology, let us look a little deeper into these features.
DevOps provides a wide scope for maintaining the data with higher security, as there is an alliance between the both operation and the development team. Data Abstraction plays an important role in this concept as the developers don’t need the program operators do not need the data that is accessed by the operation side professional.
Dora is an abbreviation of “DEVOPS RESEARCH AND ASSESSMENT”. DORA is used to be known about the details of the agility of the profound digital companies. It helps us understand the scope of the program developed by the individual who has approached it. It also helps us in being aware of the unique strengths and weaknesses of our program and builds an accurate point for us to focus on the resources to provide a rapid and a lasting improvement in the delivery capability of the respective digital or IT team.
Goals Of DevOps:
DevOps is developed with certain specific goals that have to be reached at any cost. These goals include,
1. Early release into the market.
2. It Reduces the failure rate in every new release.
3. Reduces the fixing time of the disturbances occurred in the program.
As we have already seen above, that DevOps put in Developers and the operation staff together in one place, this in-turn reduces the time of developing the code and testing it, so eventually, the release time of the software or program also decreases.
Due to the appropriate communication between the staff of the two major components of a successful company, the failure rate of the program decreases in a proper scale for every updated release of the software.
In the same way, all the errors or the bugs that are found during the testing phase or any other phase can easily be recovered using this DevOps concept.
These are the goals that are to be achieved using DevOps.
Benefits of using DevOps:
For a company that efficiently practises DevOps, there is definitely an assurance that it would satisfy all the goals of DevOps. Apparently, we can say
that the company is very efficient as it takes lesser time to complete the total work assigned to them, so it is obvious that they have a perfect vision of what they are doing.
