Benefits of DevOps with Tools and Technologies

Technical benefits:

Application Release Management Challanges

Business benefits:

To summarize, DevOps includes Automation (Continuous Integration, Continuous Testing, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Monitoring), Cloud Environment, Better Collaboration, Better Quality, and continuous customer feedback that ignites continuous innovation..

Key Component of DevOps Solutions:

The DevOps toolkit includes configuration management tools such as Puppet and Chef, repository such as SVN and GitHub for storing versions of code, monitoring tools such as Nagios and Zenoss; programming languages such as Java and .net; continuous integration tools such as Jenkins; build tools such as Ant and Maven; and scripting languages such as Perl, PHP and, JavaScript.
Key Component of DevOps Solutions

Jenkins enables user to utilize continuous integration services for software development in agile environment. It can be used to build free style software project based on Apache Ant and Maven 2/ Maven 3 Project.

Chef is a tool which is used to transform the infrastructure into code. It automates building, deploying, and managing of the infrastructure.

Software Configuration Management (SCM) is a software engineering discipline comprising of tools and techniques that an organizations used to manage the changes in software components.

Cloud Computing is regarded as a groundbreaking innovation in the recent years. It is reshaping the technology landscape. With breakthroughs made in appropriate service and business models, cloud computing has expanded its role as a backbone for IT services. It has opened various opportunities in terms of availability of application deployment environments considering three service models and four deployment models. Cloud Computing provides elastic and unlimited resources which can be efficiently utilized in the time of peak load and normal load with pay per use pricing model.

Nagios  is a cross platform and open source monitoring tool for infrastructure and network. It monitors network services such as FTP, HTTP, SSH, and  SMTP. It monitors resources, detects the problems, and alerts the stackholders.

The continuous integration and delivery practice within DevOps addresses existing problems in traditional software development scenario such as conflicts between development and operations teams and usages of different tools across the SDLC.
