We learned DevOps in the hard way => the Cloud way
Cloudly team developed Dev+Ops skills and expanded to Dev+Data+Ops capabilities -
Application, Platform, and Infrastructure Services Integration
DevOps involves the seamless integration of application, platform, and infrastructure services. It leverages containerization, microservices architecture, and serverless computing to enable efficient deployment, scalability, and flexibility. These technologies allow for the modular development and deployment of applications, leveraging platform-as-a-service (PaaS) and infrastructure-as-a-service (IaaS) offerings to streamline development and operations.
Modern CI/CD Pipeline Development and Maintenance
Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipelines are crucial for automating the software development lifecycle. Tools such as Jenkins, CircleCI, GitHub Actions, GitLab, GitOps, and CloudBees facilitate the creation and maintenance of robust CI/CD pipelines. These tools enable automated builds, testing, and deployment of software, ensuring faster release cycles, improved code quality, and streamlined collaboration among development teams.
Configuration Management and Infrastructure Automation
Configuration management and infrastructure automation tools are essential for managing and provisioning infrastructure resources. Tools like Chef, Puppet, Salt, Ansible, and Terraform, along with JFrog and AWS CloudFormation, help automate the setup and configuration of servers, networking, and other infrastructure components. These tools enable reproducible and scalable infrastructure deployment, ensuring consistency and efficiency across environments.
Monitoring and Logging Management
Monitoring and logging are critical for maintaining the health, performance, and availability of applications and infrastructure. Tools such as Nagios, Datadog, Zabbix, Prometheus, Grafana, AppDynamics, and Loggly enable effective monitoring and logging management. These tools provide real-time insights into system and application performance, alerting, anomaly detection, and centralized logging. They help identify and address issues promptly, ensuring optimal performance and reliability.
Security, Privacy, and Policy Management
DevOps emphasizes the integration of security practices throughout the software development lifecycle. Tools like Splunk, SolarWinds, Identity and Access Management (IAM) solutions, Key Management Services (KMS), Web Application Firewalls (WAF), Single Sign-On (SSO) providers like Okta, and Certificate Management solutions help manage security, privacy, and policy requirements. These tools assist in monitoring, auditing, and enforcing security controls, ensuring compliance with industry regulations and protecting sensitive data.
