What is DevOps?
DevOps is one of the ways to develop programs that focus on communication, integration, and collaboration among IT professionals to enable rapid implementation of products.
DevOps is a culture that promotes collaboration between the development team and operations. This allows the code application to produce faster and more automated results. Helps to increase the organization 's speed to deliver applications and services. It can be defined as alignment to the development and operation of IT.
What is Agile?
The Agile methodology involves continuous replication of development and testing in the SDLC process. This method focuses on the development of programs on the development of replication, evolution, and evolution.
The rapid development process divides the product into smaller parts and integrates it into the final test. It can be executed in several ways, including Scrum, Kanban, Scrum, XP, etc.
Agile vs. DevOps
Interest groups and the communications chain in the typical computing process.
Organizations adopt DevOps, which is wonderful. However, the whole dependence also causes a lot of confusion.
Some of you may have heard the term "Agile and DevOps." However, Agile and DevOps appear to be different. To simplify other people, let's assume that Agile has operations (such as Scrum and Kanban) and DevOps with technical practices such as CI, CD, Test Automation, and Infrastructure Automation.
This causes a lot of damage as some organizations now have Agile and DevOps as separate streams as part of their agile business transformation. Agile by the silo intersection, in which case people create new silos on behalf of Agile and DevOps.
With this background in mind, let's try to understand exactly what DevOps is.
DevOps is primarily an extension of Agile principles to include systems and processes rather than turning off your fears in the code log. In addition to working together as a multi-functional team of designer, test and development as part of the Agile team, DevOps operations also propose adding in the MFD definition.
DevOps seeks to focus on the global service or software that is fully delivered to the client rather than the "work program."
It emphasizes breaking barriers between developers and operations teams and making them collaborate in a way that benefits from common skills.
Agile teams used automatic construction, automation testing, continuous integration, and continuous delivery.
With DevOps, which extended beyond the "infrastructure as code," configuration management, metrics and monitoring systems, computing tools approach, virtualization and cloud to accelerate the change in the world of modern infrastructure. DevOps brings some tools to the cluster, such as configuration manager (Dummy, Chef, Ansible, Cuffingin), Synchronization (Garden Guard, Noah, mesos) and virtual monitoring and containers (AWS, Open Stack, Hobo, Port Agent) and many more.
So you see that DevOps is not an independent concept but just a graceful extension to include operations also in the definition of a graceful multi-functional team, working together and working as a team with one goal to deliver the client program completely.
Creating a graceful horizontal and independent DevOps in any organization simply negates the whole purpose (eliminating silos) from DevOps.
