What is DevOps?
DevOps is a culture which promotes collaboration between Operations Team and Development to deploy code to production faster in an repeatable & automated way. The word ‘DevOps’ is made by combining the words ‘development’ and ‘operations.’
DevOps helps to increases an organization’s speed to deliver applications and services. It allows serving customers better and compete more strongly in the market.
In simple words, DevOps can be defined as an alignment of IT operations and development with better collaboration and communication.
How DevOps Works?
Under a DevOps model the Development and Operations teams are no longer isolated. Sometimes, they are merged into a single team so that the engineers could work across the entire application lifecycle, and develop a range of skills that are not limited to a single function.
Throughout the application lifecycle quality assurance and security teams may also become more tightly integrated with development and operations in some DevOps models. DevSecOps is a term used when the focus of a DevOps team is security.
These teams use practices to make processes that historically have been manual and slow, automated. To help them operate and evolve applications quickly and reliably they use a technology stack and tooling. These tools also help engineers independently accomplish tasks (for example, deploying code or provisioning infrastructure) that normally would have required help from other teams, and this further increases a team’s velocity.
