DevOps may have many models and definitions but the ultimate goal is to create a culture and methodology within an organization for faster software delivery as well as deployment.
If we talk about the advantages we all will land on the same page that includes below objects:
Continuous Software Delivery, Smaller Technical Problems, Faster Feature Delivery, Increased Effectiveness, Job Satisfaction, Reduced Deployment Failures and Rollbacks, Reduced Time-to-Recovery, Increased Communication and Collaboration.
And, yes, to achieve these there are various open source tools available. People are using a whole lot of them in their organization to achieve the DevOps culture. But the problem comes when you think, “Is DevOps a deadly object which is killing the work life of DevOps team?” Certainly it would be answered in affirmative, if the culture is not adopted properly. To be more specific I shall ask this to the DevOps team, “Is your team doing the thing right? Or is your team doing the right thing?”
If a solution to this problem is to be achieved then the benefits mentioned above with DevOps will be enjoyed by any organization.
To adopt DevOps, people mostly use configuration management tool chef/puppet, for continuous integration they use Jenkins and binary repository they use Artifactory (JFrog). If any team has to configure it manually (traditionally ops team has this burden) then certainly it becomes a challenge to setup.
The important thing I mentioned above—DevOps is a culture so, definitely teams have to adopt and practice it. The App42 DevOps is the answer to both the questions, “Is your team doing the thing right and is your team doing the right thing?”
App42 Team brainstormed and came up with a solution that removes all the hurdles to achieve the DevOps strategy. The team suggested why not have a whole environment created for DevOps team with the all use cases and scenarios covered within a single product, with the strategy that when any organization uses it should have the minimum headache of configuring its environment.
Solution & Features proposed by DevOps team:
App42 DevOps provides an environment where there is automatic wiring of DevOps tool chain so that complete end-to-end wired tool chain can be setup in minutes.
There is also an option to setup standalone tools without requiring the use of the complete tool chain and you can integrate them with your On-Premise tools. Also, there is a unique management console to manage your complete DevOps Environment and to get detailed analytics on resource utilization. And, last but not the least, there is a team collaboration feature so that Dev and Operations team can work collaboratively and control access through roles & rights.
App42 DevOps is hosted on vCloud Air by ShepHertz, a VMware partner. It provides Continuous Integration as a Service which allows you to rapidly deploy and configure a complete DevOps tool chain using readily available open source tools.
