DevOps joins four practices that were previously intentionally separated by silos – Development, Staging, Release, and Operations. The walls between those practices were erected to separate skill sets necessary to conduct the practices as well as prevent the effects of a mistake in one practice from destroying the results downstream.
So why is DevOps desired or necessary at this point in time. Why is it important. As is typical, innovations born out of necessity have created ways of doing things faster, easier and more efficiently. The silos have broken down to avoid delays and replication in processes. But in order to achieve a desired DevOps end-state; different workflows, resources and technology must be brought to bear within the organization.
Apps | Cloud | Microservices | Containers
How is this achieved? It starts by thinking modular - creating Microservices – single-function services built by small teams, independent from other functions, which communicate only through public interfaces. It's a re-imagination of enterprise app development for faster, easier, and less error-prone provisioning and configuration that improves delivery to market.
Clients hire us to help them assess and rethink applications and infrastructure. We recommend viable approaches based on relevant factors, available resources and constraints of each client. Our steps include:
Kubernetes | GoLang | Jenkins
Kubernetes, GoLang and Jenkins are all open source solutions we utilize to support DevOps in respect to integration, management and deploying of applications. Kubernetes for instance is an open source solution for managing, automating and deploying containerized applications.
Our services offerings and staff augmentation personnel leverage these technologies. When you contract with Weil&Jones to support your systems, databases, and applications—you now that we are experienced in using the tools that can optimize product delivery. Our modular approach to application design and deployment management provides you with the services that best support your organization's DevOps goals and current capabilities.
Scaling | Program management
When you start using more containers and containerized apps broken down into many pieces management and orchestration get tricky. Eventually, you need to take a step back and group containers to deliver services – such as networking and security – across containers.
Fundamentally while containers can encapsulate and isolate applications the largest benefits come from packaging and architecting applications in a new way. Utilizing our expertise and technological resources dedicated to DevOps, its management and related technologies we can help you create highly productive operations for your organization.
