DevOps is a set of practices focused on the integration of development, IT operations and QA departments’ duties. A DevOps engineer works to create a consolidated software development life-cycle, ensuring quick and safe product delivery or improvement in production.
Define the main requirements to the infrastructure which will execute all actions (such as deployment, testing, etc.), select matching tools and techniques, agree everything with you.
Create necessary infrastructure conditions.
Organize a common development and release environment and manage all environmental elements.
Check the software delivery solutions and application itself to determine whether it is ready for an effective use.
Implement automated test and deployment mechanisms.
Predict, detect and solve issues with the software and delivery environment.
Provide you reports, manuals, instructions, logs up to your requirements and preferences.
Depending on the product structure, its complexity, and your requirements, a set of tools used for the DevOps processes may vary. For each particular case, we select them individually or can develop some custom solutions if necessary.
Quick features deployment to production.
Early defects detection and correction.
Adding quality and value, rather than fixing and maintaining.
