How DevOps Works?

DevOps is a software development methodology that improves collaboration between developers and operations teams by using various automation tools. These automation tools are implemented using various steps that are a part of the DevOps lifecycle.

Continuous Development


This stage involves committing code to version control tools such as Git or SVN for maintaining the different versions of the code, and tools like Ant, Maven, Gradle for building/packaging the code into an executable file that can be forwarded to the QAs for testing.

Continuous Integration


The stage is a critical point in the whole DevOps Lifecycle. It deals with integrating the different stages of the DevOps lifecycle and is, therefore, the key in automating the whole DevOps Process.

Continuous Deployment


In this stage the code is built, the environment or the application is containerized and is pushed onto the desired server. The key processes in this stage are Configuration Management, Virtualization, and Containerization.

Continuous Testing


The stage deals with automated testing of the application pushed by the developer. If there is an error, the message is sent back to the integration tool, this tool, in turn, notifies the developer of the error, If the test was a success, the message is sent to Integration-tool which pushes the build on the production server.

Continuous Monitoring


The stage continuously monitors the deployed application for bugs or crashes. It can also be set up to collect user feedback. The collected data is then sent to the developers to improve the application.
