Continuous Delivery and Reality. The Top 3 Benefits of Real World DevOps

DevOps is all the rage in tech nowadays. People are talking about it. Tweeting about it. But more importantly, companies are embracing and implementing DevOps to fulfill the continuous demand to deliver new solutions to customers at even faster speeds. You hear a lot about what DevOps is and how DevOps works. But what happens when you get there? What happens to your business when you implement a new way of integration and delivery? What about your culture?

The advantages of DevOps are real and measurable. Companies that have adopted a DevOps strategy have a distinct advantage over competitors that simply have not kept up. Developers are now leading the charge in writing code that can create, store, manage, modify, protect, analyze, and reuse data at a scale that was previously considered unachievable — and all in real time. This ability to monitor and learn what’s happening in an environment allows for real-time intelligent decisions for you and your company.

But what does storage have to do with it?

As we’ve seen, DevOps is an increasingly popular methodology for integrating various teams that develop and deploy applications. Integrated teams work together to collectively accelerate the development, testing, delivery, and updates to applications. But why not adopt the same methodology for the teams that manage and deploy storage? Often, one team of admins is in charge of overseeing the updates for storage — testing to ensure new technologies will not interrupt operations. Once the updates have been given the green light, another team actually deploys them. In a DevOps mindset, one team would be responsible for test and deploy, working with development teams to fully actualize the potential of the infrastructure.
