Before going to know the lifecycle of DevOps, let us first discuss to need for DevOps. What is DevOps? Why DevOps culture is implemented in companies? 

The Need for DevOps 

Development of an application is not as simple as people think. As everybody knows after development, the application needs to go under the testing phase. And we can predict the time required for the project to get into production. In some cases, it goes on time back for the purpose of development and in some cases, it goes many times. So it means it's a time-consuming process. So as an alternative, we need a process that delivers the project in a short span of time. So there comes a need for DevOps

What is DevOps?

Devops is basically a combination of two words, "development" and "operations." Usually, DevOps is a culture that follows the set of practices to combine the DevOps and  IT operation teams. Its major goal is to shorten the system delivery life cycles. This culture increases the organization's speed to deliver the applications and services.

Deploy: Deploy the code into a cloud environment for further usage. It is performed in such a manner any changes made should not affect the functioning of high traffic website.

Operate: Perform the operation on the code if any have.

Monitor: Monitor the performance of the application as per the client requirement. Keep a note on the performance of the application. Make modifications if any to satisfy the clients. And if does not reach up to the mark make changes in that particular area to satisfy the client.
