DevOps

Reduce releases cycles from weeks to hours , improve agility and ensure reliability by implementing containers, microservices based architecture automated testing and CICD.

What is DevOps?

DevOps is a culture, movement or practice that emphasizes the collaboration and communication of both software developers and other information-technology (IT) professionals while automating the process of software delivery and infrastructure changes. It aims at establishing a culture and environment where building, testing, and releasing software, can happen rapidly, frequently, and more reliably.

Traditional organizations are siloed where there is little cross-departmental integration between Development and IT Operations teams. DevOps promotes a set of processes and methods to foster communication and collaboration between development, QA, and IT operations. This integrated approach helps organizations deliver services quickly as required by business.

Integrated approach that helps organizations

Devops-Process

In traditional software release process the development team builds and tests code in their private environment and releases it to a operations team for production. Since two teams work separately, it becomes difficult for the development team to become fully aware of operational complexities like infrastructure, configuration, deployment, log management, and performance monitoring. These departmental silos between development and operations can slow down the production releases. The DevOps approach makes development and operations work together seamlessly.

By applying DevOps tools and principles that automate the process and reduce the complexity of version control, configuration management, continuous integration, deployment, and continuous performance monitoring. This close alignment enables organizations to deliver new releases in days rather than in months while improving the reliability of the application thereby giving a competitive edge to the organizations.

Repeatable, Reliable, Predictable, Low cycle time

DevOps spans across the entire delivery pipeline to improve deployment frequency, lower failure rate of new releases, shorten lead time between fixes, and enable faster mean time to recovery. Simple processes become increasingly programmable, automated, and dynamic by using a DevOps approach.

Continuous_Development

Continuous Development

The methodology of DevOps enables to save the valuable time, resources and offers a competitive edge by adopting continuous development. Going big by doing small is the model of continuous development. It helps to address the two essential basics of agile development: faster development and frequent improvement. This iterative and augmented development practice gave elevation to Continuous Integration.

Continuous_Deployment

Continuous Deployment

Continuous deployment extends the tactic of continuous development, integration, and DevOps practices more by diminishing the time lapse between the era of coding and deploying them. It enables parallel test creation and running a continuous test in the real-time environment. Moreover, it offers faster reaction time, minimize the risk, expose costs at an early stage and provide flexible release options.

Continuous_Operations

Continuous Operations

The continuous operations enable the availability of applications and data services without any interruption. The availability and performance of the application should not bear from continuous releases and updates to avoid any downtime. Additionally, constant supervision of infrastructure and services and applications has to tie with automated solutions. The significance of continuous operations can be mainly revealed by the cost of downtime.

DevOps Services

Configuration Management

Our config management encompasses the practices and tools to automate the delivery and operation of infrastructure. Using Puppet or Chef, we can help continually monitor and enforce desired configs, and automatically remediate any config drifts.

Source Code Management

We manage the code base using robust version control tools like SVN, Git, CVS, and Mercurial that authenticate the access, maintain all revisions of files, automate the commit and facilitate version and tagging.

Containers

Our expert team containerizes the applications though tools like Docker, Packer, Kubernetes, CloudSlang, ContainerShip, and Techtonic, which facilitate building up the flexible and agile application development. It helps to greater performance and higher secured application.

Continuous Integration

Crest team extends the practice of agility by ensuring code quality and coverage through automated tools. We use Jenkins, Travis Cl, Bamboo, Circle CI, and CodeShip for the automation of code integration.

Automation

Our Automation engineers perform the continuous checking to ensure that application meets the functional requirement with all configurations and environment. We use JUnit, Rational Robot, Coded UI, Maven, and Selenium for automated functional testing. For performance testing, our experts use Jmeter, Load runner, Acunatix, and Burp Suite.

AWS

For enterprises getting started with DevOps on AWS, our consultants can help facilitate a rapid yet smooth transition. We have helped several Fortune 1000 companies migrate their workloads to AWS using several services including AWS CodePipeline, CodeBuild, CodeDeploy, CodeCommit, ECS, Lambda, CloudFormation, CloudWatch, CloudTrail, Elastic Beanstalk, etc.
