The Nexus Suite is uniquely architected for a DevOps native world and creates value early in the development pipeline, provides precise contextual controls at every phase, and accelerates DevOps innovation with automation you can trust. Read how in this ebook.

Inspired by the " Why are you still deploying overnight?" post that got a lot of traction, especially in the DevOps fold, John E. Vincent decided to write a pair of blog posts on his own view of the major myths and facts surronding Operations.  His first post is more on the theoretical side and here were his takeaways:

  • The risk associated with deploying new code is not in the deploy itself but everything you did up to that point.
  • The way to make deploying new code less risky is to do it more often, not less.
  • Create a culture and environment that enables and encourages small, frequent releases.
  • Everything fails. Embrace failure.
  • Make deploys trivial, automated and tolerant of failure.

-- John E. Vincent

His second post, "Deploy ALL the Things" provides more concrete information about understanding Operations and the techniques required to manage risk and deploy strategically.  A lot of the patterns are also found in our Continuous Delivery Refcard.

I encourage you to check out both of the posts linked below.
