Introduction to DevOps

It brings together process and technology, automating software delivery to provide continuous values to users. With DevOps solutions deliver software faster and reliable, irrespective of the tools used by the company. It is a set of practices that automates the process between software development and the operation team, involving tasks such as build, test, release software faster and more reliability. The central concept of it is that it is not technology, but the tools commonly used. These include Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) tools to perform task automation. It is a platform provided by Microsoft. On this platform, it performs practices like Build Code, Deploy Code, CI/CD and lots of inbuilt services provided.
A process in which, Modern software engineering Culture and Practices to develop software where the development and operation teams work hand in hand as one unit. Click to explore about, What is DevOps and it's Processes?

How DevOps works?

CloudWatch used for Critical Monitoring. It support its efforts by providing services to build, store and deploy apps. Its features are accessible in it. Most of the organization using the model and technology employ to demonstrate integration with the existing development, testing, deployment, and operations process. IT Team analyzes whether DevOps right for the organization while having applications on Public Cloud.
  • Start using Azure Boards.
  • Sign up and get started using it.
  • Track code failures and user stories, capturing discussion along the way.
  • Manage the continuous flow of work from concept to completion.
  • Create and manage backlogs, track features, user stories, and bugs.
  • Use it to plan and track work, linking to Github commits and pull requests.
  • Plan a task, use a task board in daily scrums, monitor it.
  • Search work items to update and to chart process and trends.
  • Grow Organization, support autonomous team and gain visibility across with respective teams.
  • Configure tools and processes to meet the required teams.
  • Configure Resource for it.
  • Default Permission and access it.

What are the benefits?

  • Easy to install of applications and takes only a few minutes in the configuration.
  • Client or any other applications run with it.
  • It supports lots of platforms and runs on multiple frameworks.
  • It supports various languages such as Java, Node, PHP, .NET, and Python.
  • Client/Organisation start applications or new applications from Git with the help of it.
  • Instant analysis of an application by using built-in apps and Cloud features by using Visual Studio Services.
  • It deploys applications and easily customize an application and also adds a test environment to validate Production.

Why DevOps is important?

  • Get Started Fast - In the Azure account, there are IoT Services on it ready to use without the need to set up or software to install.
  • Fully Managed Services - Fully Managed Services services take advantages of its resources without worrying about settings of installing software or operating infrastructure on our own.
  • Built for Scale - It manages a single instance and also scales up to thousands using its services. These services make more flexible to compute resources through simple provisioning, configuration, and scaling.
  • Programmable - It also provides an option to each service via the Azure CLI or through API's. It models and provisions Azure resources and all its infrastructure using declarative Cloud formation.
  • Automation -  uses automation to build faster and more efficiently. Using its services also automate manual tasks or processes such as deployment, development & test workflow and configure.
  • Secure - Azure IAM sets user permission and policies. It is used for user access on particular services of its resources and how user access those services.

How to adopt DevOps on Microsoft Azure?

  • Software Release Workflow - It is Azure code pipeline, a Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery service for fast and reliable application and infrastructure updates. Core pipeline builds, tests and deploy code every time when there changes on the code and based on the release process models defined. It enables rapid and reliable delivery of features and updates.
  • Build & Test Code - It is Azure code build which includes building the code and test code. It comprises of fully managed build services that compile the sources codes required, then it runs, and time to tests, also produces software packages ready to deploy. Codebuild doesn't need provisioning, management, and scaling of build servers. It scales continuously and processes multiple builds concurrently, to ensure that builds not left for waiting in a queue.
  • Deployment Automation - It is Azure code deploy to do deployment automation. It is Azure code deploy to automate code deployments to any of the instance, including  Amazon EC2 instances and On-Premises servers. It's a deployment in Azure code deploy that makes easier to do rapidly release with new features, to avoid downtime during application deployment and handles the complexity of updating the application.
  • Unified CI/CD Projects - It is codestar used for CI/CD projects. Codestar quickly develops, builds and deploys the application on the dashboard. Codestar provides a specified user interface, to easily manage software development activities in one place. Codestar sets up entire Continuous Delivery toolchain in minutes, to start releasing code faster.
  • The provision, Configure and manage Infrastructure - It is an Cloud formation to create and manage a collection of the all related its resources, and also do provisioning and it's also updated in an orderly and predictable fashion. It also uses Cloud formation sample templates or creates own templates.
