Such an informative book

DevOps is the practice of operations and development engineers participating together in the entire service lifecycle, from design through the development process to production support.

Lots of DevOps wisdom in one place

In order to begin the process, you should identify application value streams by identifying series of all activities specifically necessary for moving your services and products from development to the production stage. In the process, you will see that there are various bottlenecks, constraints and of course, wait queues. However, by examining your applications value streams you will be able to understand on which activities your teams need to focus and what activities should and need to be improved.

As soon as you identify areas in which your delivery process is not so efficient, you will see what activities need to be improved since it is a great opportunity to make changes within your company or organization, which will most certainly provide better quality services and products. However, in order to achieve this, you have to accept changes and be willing to experiment. It should be noted that short-term failure is commonly accepted since you are learning from it as well as improving.

You may hear that companies and organizations equate DevOps approach with automation. Well, already stated is true strictly speaking since automation can easily help in order to accelerate various manual processes. On the other hand, DevOps is mainly about communication and collaboration. In other words, you have to embrace firm collaborative practices and communication among everyone including testing teams, software development teams, delivery teams and other.

Kubernetes will be effective if you use DevOps. Programming will take less errors and mistakes. This is so much useful. As a matter of fact we use this book as a guide to our business and well, this is so much effective. I hope more developers will study this book as their reference.

Amazing - my eyes are now open

Good, short overview of basic DevOps framework. Rare are books that get to the point and this is an example. DevOps movement is greatly changing the overall IT environment and it incorporates into various areas including the database. It should be noted that some areas, like major areas affected by DevOps, have not been part of some traditional development models. There is a new research recently carried out which shows how great impact of DevOps is of the overall IT world. A global study, which included around thousand companies and organizations, surveyed IT professionals using SQL Server. These IT professionals are ranging from IT directors and managers to C-level executives and administrators. The study shows that half of them employed more than five hundred people. The message was clear. DevOps movement, in fact, is becoming a norm as well as mainstream. More and more people clearly see that the database is central to the software development process. IT services, as well as retail, are potentially reflecting the overall competition in the market since they are leading their ways. Over fifty percent of companies and organizations are already using DevOps techniques like major healthcare and finance companies. DevOps also greatly affects manufacturing, government, education as well as large nonprofit organizations. Therefore, it is not surprising that you are thinking about adopting DevOps practices and incorporating them into your own business since major companies have already done that with great success.

The true root of DevOps

Technical benefits of DevOps include efficient and continuous software delivery, quicker resolution of various problems and less complexity that has to be managed. Cultural benefits of DevOps include more productive and happier organization teams. Since teams are happier, there is also higher employee engagement in various tasks. Greater professional opportunities are also one of the cultural benefits.

DevOps, in fact, is the blending of various tasks, which are performed by company’s application development as well as system operations teams. This term may be used in a different way but the meaning remains the same. In broad meaning, it is an operational philosophy, which promotes greater communication between various development systems, and operations since a greater number of elements become programmable. If we put it in another most narrow interpretation, we can say that DevOps, in fact, describes the part of a company’s tech team or IT team which maintains and creates company’s infrastructure. This term also can be used in order to describe a culture, which strategically looks at software delivery chain.
DevOps, in fact, helps a company or an organization to deploy their software more frequently and at the same time, it helps them to maintain their service stability. In this case gaining the speed is fundamental step towards better as well as more often innovations. In other words, everyone is able to provide and deliver the best results for their customers.


DevOps also has many business benefits such as faster delivery of different features, greater stability of operating environment, improved collaboration and communication and greater amount of time to innovate rather than maintain and fix. Therefore, DevOps practices provide two hundred times more frequent deploys, twenty-four times faster recovery time and three times lower change failure rates.

Deep dive into IT operations reality

DevOps term was introduced by Patrick Dubois in 2009. Patrick Dubois became DevOps chief proponent. As its name suggests, DevOps is simply operations and software development. These two disciplines were melded together in order to emphasize collaboration, communication, and cohesion between IT operations teams and separate developer teams. The traditional approach looks at these two disciplines as two separated disciplines, but DevOps combines them together as one. A few years ago, major critical thinking on various converging methodologies including dynamics, thinking and systems which are part of Agile Operations Management, LEAN, Theory of Constraints and IT Service management started bubbling up in talks, various worldwide debates and the subjects were a major topic at various conferences. These conversations, in fact, are the main philosophy behind the DevOps tools and DevOps movement. It touches all the key areas of DevOps and its practicality in the area of continuous integration, development and deployment. DevOps approach also provides automated monitoring as a breeding ground for all new ways of improving your overall business process. It, in fact, enables you to identify as well as to mitigate risks at the stage where they are still controllable. When you mitigate and foresee risks, you are able to take better and wiser business decisions. It should be noted that each major risk not handled or avoided in some timely manner means saving additional operational costs that have occurred due to various interrupted operations. When it comes to the major DevOps advantages, I have to mention the timely discovery of defects and early testing. These allow team members to start testing in the early stage of software development to find defects as well as to fix them at the time when the cost of those fixes is very low. Automated testing allows that continuous testing to be a greater part of the DevOps practices like there is a direct feedback system scilicet able to catch the faults as well as to encourage innovations for further process improvements. This, in fact, brings down your overall cost.

The source of DevOps.

Google introduced site reliability engineering in 2003. This is a new approach which features some continuous into large-scale as well as high-availability systems while are the same time it maintains high-quality customer experience. While site reliability engineering, in fact, predates the development of DevOps, these two are generally considered as independent trends. However, DevOps have taken some aspects of site reliability engineering as well. DevOps is often considered as an approach, which helps system administration work to in continuously advancing, could technology.

The consequences of failure also have never been this great like in recent years. However, high performers like Netflix and Google that are using DevOps methodology are routinely as well as reliably deploying code into production stage hundreds and sometimes-even thousands each day. DevOps is that fundamental tool, principal, and guidance that provides that great security, reliability, fast deployments, fewer errors and greater overall performance.

Many other organizations are following steps of highperforming organizations, so they have integrated DevOps practices and methodologies into their software development process. They integrate DevOps into their product management, quality assurance, development, IT operations as well as information security to elevate their organization or company and to win in the market.

Very well organized and practical information for IT professionals who are driving continuous delivery, cloud architecture, and lean principle adoption.

Makes me want more

This book furnishes a solid theoretical outline with a huge level of DevOps coverage,as well as various case studies,but don't anticipate that points of interest or by what means should details.I energetically prescribe this book. Many IT operation and software development teams have already adopted DevOps techniques into their work in order to gain help from it and to evolve into more innovative as well as a faster version of their former selves. Companies and organizations that have not yet implemented DevOps practices feel the great pressure to do so as a certain result of competition. The competition is widely present in the industry. However, pursuing advancement may be uncomfortable since it calls for all teams to move out of their work comfort zones. Progress also comes with many challenges at first, but it greatly pays off if you stay the course and put hard work and discipline.

Clear thinking about DevOps

Mirco has captured in very concise form the concepts and practical steps leaders in an IT organization need to transform. It is more than apparent that DevOps automation is the right way to go if companies and organizations need to greatly impress their customers, further remain competitive and of course thrive in this extremely volatile market. This is the place where delivery cycles time have greatly shrunk to weeks from several months and performance and stability of the product or application are fundamental metrics of business success. DevOps, in fact, is redefining this new organizational structure in terms of recognizing that new technology and improvements are needed in order to create an indelible impact as well as to enable greater productivity and efficiency of businesses. Organizations and companies have had their process as well as systems in order to monitor, test, track and deploy their products and services. There have been teams in those places too, who have worked hard, but within separated groups which made them operate in a manner, which was greatly debilitating. Today, the situation is different since there are many DevOps practices to be adopted and implemented into the businesses. DevOps, in fact, provides the maximum level of efficiency since it has introduced various automation tools, which have already built in visual dashboards that allow you to see all defects as well as bottlenecks that further help you to manage teams in a more effective manner by increasing stability, quality, throughput, and performance.

DevOps for the People

You should not fear of failure and you should not constantly worry if DevOps in your case will be successful. DevOps in much more than just some technical practices and DevOps impacts people as well as processes, so as soon as you start keeping that in mind. You should draw a certain connection between overall management’s goals and other goals, which can be improved by DevOps practices. You have to think about what pressures and goals managements is facing. A common goal is to increase overall operational efficiency and it is usually accomplished by some shorter task, times as well as lowering costs.
