DevOps is a software engineering practice that aims at unifying software development (Dev) and software operation (Ops). DevOps aims at shorter development cycles, increased deployment frequency, more dependable releases, in close alignment with business objectives.
Collaboration, Code management, Building, Configuration, Deployment, and Monitoring are the main component of DevOps.
We use some standard tools and services to achieve key features of DevOps.
- We use Git for the Collaboration and Code Management.
- Gradel, Maven is our basic building tools.
- We use the trusted service provider for the deployment and monitoring and these are Google Cloud, Microsoft Azure, Amazon EC2.
Amazon Web Services
Amazon Elastic Compute Cloud (Amazon EC2) is a web service that provides secure, re-sizable compute capacity in the cloud. It is designed to make web-scale cloud computing easier for developers.
Amazon EC2’s simple web service interface allows you to obtain and configure capacity with minimal friction. Amazon EC2 reduces the time required to obtain and boot new server instances to minutes, allowing us to quickly scale capacity, both up and down.
Amazon Simple Storage Service (Amazon S3) makes it simple and practical to collect, store, and analyze data – regardless of format – all at massive scale. S3 is object storage built to store and retrieve any amount of data from anywhere – websites and mobile apps, corporate applications, and data from IoT sensors or devices. You can use it for media storage and distribution, as the “data lake” for big data analytics, as a backup target, and as the storage tier for serverless computing applications.
Amazon Relational Database Service (Amazon RDS) makes it easy to set up, operate, and scale a relational database in the cloud. It provides cost-efficient and resizable capacity while automating time-consuming administration tasks such as hardware provisioning, database setup, patching and backups. It frees you to focus on your applications so you can give them the fast performance, high availability, security and compatibility they need.
Amazon Virtual Private Cloud (Amazon VPC) lets you provision a logically isolated section of the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud where you can launch AWS resources in a virtual network that you define. You have complete control over your virtual networking environment, including a selection of your own IP address range, creation of subnets, and configuration of route tables and network gateways. You can use both IPv4 and IPv6 in your VPC for secure and easy access to resources and applications.
The Microsoft cloud platform is a set of integrated computing, storage, data, and network services and applications.
Microsoft Azure is an open and flexible platform that provides all the necessary building blocks for rapid construction, implementation, and management of cloud-based solutions.
Microsoft Azure offers a wide range of services based on application, computing, storage, and network consumption. You can build applications using any language, tool, or framework, on a totally automated platform, and it provides scalable resources in a matter of minutes.
Microsoft Azure is widely considered both a Platform as a Service (PaaS) and Infrastructure as a Service (IaaS) offering.
Microsoft categorizes Azure services into 11 main product types:
these services provide virtual machines, containers, batch processing and remote application access.
Web and mobile
these services support the development and deployment of web and mobile applications, and also offer features for API management, notification and reporting.
this category includes Database as a Service offerings for SQL and NoSQL, as well as unstructured and cached cloud storage.
these services provide distributed analytics and storage, as well as real-time analytics, big data analytics, data lakes, machine learning and data warehousing.
Media and content delivery network (CDN)
these services include on-demand streaming, encoding and media playback and indexing.
Internet of Things (IoT)
these services help users capture, monitor and analyze IoTdata from sensors and other devices.
this group includes virtual networks, dedicated connections and gateways, as well as services for traffic management, load balancing and domain name system (DNS) hosting.
these are services for server backup, site recovery and connecting private and public clouds.
Identity and access management (IAM)
these offerings ensure only authorized users can employ Azure services, and help protect encryption keys and other confidential information.
Management and security
these products help cloud administrators manage their Azure deployment, schedule and run jobs, and create automation. This product group also includes capabilities for identifying and responding to cloud security threats.
Google Cloud Platform is a suite of public cloud computing services offered by Google. The platform includes a range of hosted services for compute, storage and application development that run on Google hardware. Google Cloud Platform services can be accessed by software developers, cloud administrators and other enterprise IT professionals over the public internet or through a dedicated network connection.
