How DevOps Leads to Cloud Development

DevOps is the combination of tools and practices for developing faster applications. Because speed is all that matters to the client all they expect is to get their job done accurately and timely. DevOps has ability to deliver on demand and on time products.

DevOps is offering a fully managed, scalable and reliable way to deliver cloud based products and services for the applications. A lots of companies are offering flexible combo of services that are designed to build and deliver products in pace and managing way. DevOps provides the velocity to organization’s work to deliver products to client in an organized automated way.

DevOps has already taken over the time complexity issue of delivering product in agile process with automation. Technology is changing. Cloud and devOps are tightly coupled with a single thread. They are delivering products in a well organized way that is very challenging without devOps tools.

In these days a vast variety of tools are available in the market to deliver the needs of client. With all the heart-touching services that devOps is offering lead to increase in use of cloud. As many companies like Google, Amazon, Microsoft, IBM etc., are offering and working on the their own tools. These competitors also provides devops training, run certification programs and conduct test to make peoples learn their product and results in generating employment.

Lots of cloud providers are offering services for building, testing and deploying your application. The best part is you’ll pay only for what you use. They offer services for continuously integrating updates to pipes.

So if someone comes up with the query ‘Why should i use DevOps to build my application?’

I’ll say take a look at the services that are being offered and practicing these will make your work more feasible, reliable and in very organized way. Some are:

Server less Computing: Some of the cloud providers gives the fully managed server less platform for deploying your application, for example, in AWS- Lambda service you’ll just have to upload your code then every other things will taken care automatically. You don’t have to worry about load balancers, machine infrastructure, and scalability.

Infrastructure Monitoring: One can decide to use perfect set of tool accordingly to their budgets and needs for monitoring from their cloud providers. Like cloudwatch, microsoft monitoring agent. It provides data metrics for CPU utilization monitoring, inbound outbound data transfer, Storage disk utilization. You also can set alarms to these metrics to fully automate processes. If needed you can change the resources.

Set-up and configure multi-level architecture: In this era of cloud and devops one even can design a supercomputer out of these services. Through amazon Elastic cloud computing one can build a machine for deploying code into it. The specifications of the machine will be based on machine image, CPU type in batch or parallel processing, security groups that can  be added manually, ports range, one can define  virtual private cloud environment in which the system will rely on. 

Log Analytics & System Statistics: Monitored logs are saved in application log files for the review. These stats contains data like log event, group, retention policies, filters and sequence of log events from source. 

Create , Test and Run Container: Some tools provides fully managed repository services for storing your code into private repository and performing push pop operations on them securely. E.g., AWS code commit, bit bucket. They comes up with the tools for diagnosis like for debugging, reporting errors, reliable storage and connected repositories.

Here you’ll be provided with the developer tools to build fully managed application. Some of them are code star, code commit, cloud9, code deploy, code build, lighthouse, workbox, etc.

Platform as a Service: It provides the platform as a service that is very easy to use and one can deploy code from any languages like in nodejs, c, c++, java etc., and your code will be auto scaled to monitor health of the application so that one can manage all resources. 

Identity and Access Management: All the services and products are provided with the credentials to access them so as to keep them secure. To use any of these services a root user with keys is assigned so that one will only manage what work he is provided with making it very easy for developers.

Replication: The good part is you’ll be provided with the replication service for your database and code. Some providers offer the replica in multi zone so that you will never lose your data. Suppose if data will be destroyed from one region availability zone then your data’s backup can be found in other zone. Snapshot services are also offered to save your data even when you are completely terminating the machine. It also provides services like migration of very large databases.

So from the past few years cloud is a booming industry and making friendship with devOps making it more and more famous as it results in producing fruitful products in very short time and easily. Even from a small hospital to a very large enterprise all can be now easily managed through it.
