Business agility is the key to staying ahead of the curve and navigating the complex, competitive environment, dynamic market demands, and rising customer expectations. The cloud has emerged as an answer to this need for agility. It has proved to be a viable business solution to address the challenges of today’s enterprises. Along with the rise of cloud hosting, we have witnessed the increased adoption of DevOps as a means for organizations to achieve their transformation goals. 

DevOps is leaning towards the cloud to fulfill the need for on-demand compute and the ability to scale resources. The cloud gives DevOps teams a centralized platform that helps them manage project progress and their resources. 

While the cloud is all about technology and services, DevOps is all about process and bringing development and operations together in the software development lifecycle.


DevOps with Atlassian Data Center – Why it works

As DevOps becomes the mainstay, organizations have to keep their systems and infrastructure ahead of their team’s growth, address the need for high availability and application performance, ensure high deployment flexibility, and tighter instance control.

DevOps on the Cloud 

The cloud has intermingled organically in the DevOps vocabulary as it has become the enabler of efficiencies. 

The cloud offers several benefits to DevOps teams: 

  1. It positively impacts the developers’ productivity by giving them more control over their components and reducing wait times.  
  2. Owing to its application-specific infrastructure, it helps developers automate build processes and also assists them in managing their projects better. 
  3. It helps teams manage and provision code while establishing repeatability, which assists in speeding up the development processes. 
  4. It has now become a single common language that allows developers and operations to communicate seamlessly with each other in other DevOps environments. 
  5. By providing access to advanced tools and enabling automation easily, it is helping organizations streamline their DevOps processes. 

By enabling greater efficiencies, providing faster access to development environments, and streamlining processes that leverage advanced automation tools, the cloud is helping development teams bring products to market faster. 


Introducing Codefactori

When it comes to DevOps, incidents such as outages and downtime due to upgrades or maintenance can be counterproductive. Along with this, organizations need the flexibility to scale seamlessly without worrying about concerns like capital expenditure costs, the management of their data centers, hardware, or payroll for infrastructure. They need the highest level of data protection. Another need is robust application monitoring. 

In the DevOps environment, speed, productivity, and access become interlinked. To reap the benefits of DevOps, organizations have to try to eliminate all possible restrictions from the development teams and allow them to work with the tools of their choice. Development teams also need critical insights and techniques for optimizing their release process. 

How can organizations fulfill these needs? To succeed with DevOps, they need a comprehensive solution that helps them manage all these requirements. This is where Codefactori comes into play.
