DevOps is practice where people, regardless of title or background, work together to imagine, develop, deploy and operate to establish a workflow.
DevOps is blend of intellectual activities that comprehensively work to achieve the goals of an enterprise.
As per Amazon Web Services DevOps is:
The combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes.
This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.
According to me DevOps is more than Software or more than Testing or More than Deployment, it’s think, plan, mitigate and mould.
DevOps consolidate the entire flow of implementation of a system of an organisation in a very organized manner enabling reduction in errors and also helps in detection of bugs and rectifying them with out effecting the running process.
Version controlling, bisecting helps in these kinds of activities. DevOps in a larger view helps to test, secure, deploy and run without hassel. Updating of frequent small tasks made easier using DevOps.
The world has updated to Cloud Technologies of maintaining their data in multiple locations to ensure 100% uptime and data security.
DevOps with its practices like Data Replication, CI/ CD, Docker with Containerization helps us to save data in multiple locations and also Versionization enables proper testing time to time
