Developer operations sits at the intersection of our web development and systems administration team. By utilizing automation and configuration management we’re able to significantly reduce time to market, control infrastructure costs, and align our remote development teams.
What is DevOps and Do I Need It?
Developer operations can be as simple as standardizing your development and deployment processes or as complex as managing thousands of services that are part of a worldwide infrastructure.
DevOps helps you move away from the world of error-prone, manual systems management, bash files and golden images and into a world of versioned controlled configuration management and provisioning with code.
Why DevOps vs. Outsourced Hosting?
Hosting providers may help you get your application or website on a server and onto the web—but they won’t improve your skillset, reduce bugs, automate deployments, or save you money on your overall engineering costs.
Plus you need the professional service and advice only a developer ops expert can provide.
By bridging the gap between development, deployment, product management, hosting, and maintenance we’re able to create value across your technology stack that reaches your end users—by providing a system with high availability, performance, and reproducibility.
What Are the Benefits of DevOps and Modern IT?
The benefits are many. From improving developer productivity to scaling infrastructure quickly and at a lower cost than alternatives.
Team Culture and Morale—Introducing devOps to your overall engineering strategy will make your team happier and more productive. Engineers love to learn. Our team will make your team better.
Productivity and Automation—Automate your test suites, provisioning, deployments, and more. Free up resources and focus on creating more value.
Reduced Time to Market—Stop wasting time with golden images, complex development environments and getting software developers up to speed. Start working with reproducible and disposable environments that enable parity between development, staging, and production environments.
Risk Management—Minimize quality concerns and defects across the application development lifecycle. System configuration is defined and lives under source control so you don’t have to worry about introducing bugs with manual provisioning.
More Focused on Value Creation—Once you’ve automate your infrastructure you can focus your team on building better, faster software products. You can ship features faster by focusing your engineers on writing new software—not maintaining failure prone systems.
Technical Benefits—Once the initial knowledge is acquired configuration management and IT automation delivers more reliable systems with less complexity and at a lower cost. Problems are identified and resolved faster. Software can be continuously deployed without the fear associated with deployments in the past. Development, staging and production environments are kept in parody eliminating edge cases in compatibility and further reducing risk, anxiety, and failure.
What are Some Use Cases for DevOps?
Growing WordPress Websites—Do you have a growing WordPress based website that’s running on shared hosting, a VPS, or other hosting solution? Do you need to revise your developer workflow, modernize your pipeline, or launch continuous integration or continuous development solutions? Want to create a single command deployment process? How about setting up development, staging, and production environments with parity between all three to avoid package management and version control issues? We can do it. We’ll help you move into the latest WordPress based DevOps and hosting solutions that deliver the most value for your engineering dollars.
