According to the good and the great, DevOps is the new reality for Operations. I mean everything is now virtual or encapsulated in light-weight containers. It is all about the App! In this article it is intended to have a brief look in to the rise of the movement that is now called DevOps, investigate where it came from, and where it is now and more importantly is it suitable for the future.
Big Dev, Little Ops
Today our view of DevOps is big DEV and little OPS, or to be more precise, people who have more a history of development than day to day operations, the focus is more on using code to deploy infrastructure, than using code to make day one and day two operations simpler. Focus has moved rapidly from making system administration simpler through orchestration and automation to the point where the concept of a virtual machine, container or application have been distilled down to several lines of code. Great examples of tools to help us do that are Terraform, PowerShell, Perl, Ansible, Chef and Puppet.
