Deploying code can be a hassle: unstable environments, unhappy customers and high administration costs due to the long service time required. But with Continuous DevOps you can integrate code fast and easily while stabilizing your services and keeping your customers happy.
DevOps is key to achieving the integration of code within your software operation, while continuous methods save a lot of time through automated testing and deployment. With the right tools you can even scale your code and services elastically to save money and improve stability. Combining continuous methods with DevOps gives you the opportunity to keep track of many tasks while always being available for the users´ appliances.
So what exactly is DevOps?
DevOps is more than just the combination of two words. It means deep integration and interaction between two critical topics.
Code just being inside a code repository is worth nothing if it cannot deployed by the system administrator and doesn’t run stable on target machines.
However, deploying code is more than just running it on the target machine due to varying requirements, configuration files and system tweaks. Therefore, Ops always need to follow and understand the purpose of the code and can be key to integrating the code correctly.
Adding the continuous component to these operations, you get automated testing and deployment of code, which will save you a lot of time and hassle compared to a manual integration with documentation.
If you then choose the right tools, you are able to elastically scale your code and services.
A stable and continuous implementation of code with continuous DevOps will help you boost customer happiness by guaranteeing a stable service.
How we use continuous DevOps at cognitix
In addition to the application development and internal infrastructure, we use a combination of those methods to provide a highly reliable update server infrastructure for all cognitix products. In addition to reliable deployment, we make sure to cover:
– load balancing
– policies (geoblocking)
– fraud detection
cognitix offers a new series of meetup events focusing on latest software engineering processes. Take this opportunity and register here.
