The Modern DevOps Lifecycle
While DevOps is here to stay, as the years pass, we must continuously assess and seek improvements to our existing software processes, systems, and culture — and DevOps is no exception to that rule. With business needs and customer demands constantly shifting, so must our technology, mindsets, and architecture in order to keep pace.Now is the time for this movement that's all about "shifting left" to essentially shift.In our annual DevOps Trend Report, we explore both its fundamental principles as well as the emerging topics, methodologies, and challenges surrounding the engineering ecosystem. Within our "Key Research Findings" and featured articles from our expert community members, readers will find information on core DevOps topics as well as new insights on what's next for DevOps in 2024 and beyond. Join us to learn about the state of CI/CD pipelines, the impact of technical debt, patterns for supply chain management<>DevOps, the rise of platform engineering, and even more!
Performance and Site Reliability
The concept of observability was first leveraged over 110 years ago. It was initially known as telemetry, and in 1912, it used the city of Chicago’s telephone lines to transmit data from the electric power plants to a central control station. Today, modern observability is still very much focused on the interplay of data to yield informed inputs and outputs of systems. Sprinkle in site reliability engineering (SRE), and there should be little to no performance issues in distributed systems, right? In an ideal world, yes, but in reality, there is still work to be done.DZone’s 2022 Trend Report, Performance and Site Reliability: Observability for Distributed Systems, takes a holistic view of where developers stand in their observability practices. Through the research and expert-contributed articles, it offers a primer on distributed systems observability, including how to build an open-source observability toolchain, dives into distributed tracing, and takes a look at prospective performance degradation patterns. It also provides insight into how to create an SRE practice, as well as tactics to conduct an effective incident retrospective. The goal of this Trend Report is to offer a developer-focused assessment of what the current state of observability is and how it fits in with modern performance practices.
