What is DevOps?

DevOps is a way to release better software. It is not just technical tools or workflows. DevOps is also a cultural practice. DevOps produces better software, faster by aligning development, staging, and deployment.

DevOps isn't one thing

While it is not a fixed methodology, automation and a collaborative culture are the foundation for accepted DevOps practices, which include:

  • Measuring the things that have an impact on your organization’s goals
  • Including all teams in the software delivery process from planning to production
  • Automating the development pipeline and removing bottlenecks for faster delivery

DevOps culture & practices

DevOps culture and practices are key to aligning your software delivery cadence with your organization’s goals — and to organizational success. In this video, hear experts Jez Humble, Gene Kim, Peter Richards and Jeffrey Snover talk about how a DevOps approach affects your business; its relationship to Agile and lean management principles; and the revolutionary change it represents for both IT and business.

DevOps approach with Puppet

Automation helps you move faster without sacrificing stability or security. Now is the time to take advantage of automation and proven practices to drive your team — and your deployments — forward.

Puppet Enterprise lets you deliver infrastructure changes faster, release better software, and do it all more frequently with confidence.

Martin Jackson, a systems engineer at Walmart, talks about how DevOps practices bring Walmart corporate values to its IT operations.

Lay the foundation for DevOps practices

Puppet Enterprise manages infrastructure as code, providing the foundation for DevOps practices such as versioning, automated testing, continuous integration and continuous delivery. You deploy changes with confidence and recover more quickly from failures, freeing your team to be more agile and responsive to business needs.

Deliver better infrastructure faster

Bring continuous delivery to infrastructure code, increasing reliability as you decrease cycle times so you can release changes faster. Gain the  confidence that your continuous integration and continuous delivery pipeline is consistent and your infrastructure is stable, while also allowing you the ability to roll back at a moments notice.

Increase productivity and operational efficiency

DevOps makes your business more agile, eliminating silos and improving collaboration across teams, from development to operations to QA to security. Puppet can help automate the entire application development lifecycle, from core infrastructure through application maintenance.

Puppet enables us to truly adopt the DevOps way of managing IT infrastructure.
