Devops done right

Operations needs to evolve to stay relevant. The industry is continuing to be more software-centric. Everything is a service now, and many businesses are choosing the cloud over traditional on-premises solutions. To keep up, we must embrace our inner developers and treat our infrastructure as software and manage it as such. We must manage our servers as cattle -- anonymous creatures only on this earth to provide us sustenance rather than pets with names and custom collars. This takes code and new tools based on our ability to write scripts to make the most of them.

In previous years, it was not possible for developers and operations to work side by side. Now that we're able to represent traditionally physical components as software, operations can stand on common ground as developers through code. But doing so will take a developer’s-eye view of your traditional administration tasks.
