DevOps

Whether you need a little help or a lot, we've got you covered.

What is DevOps?

DevOps refers to a process where a concept goes from creation and development to deployment in a production environment. For example, adding a new aspect or feature to your software or creating a bug fix. To be successful, constant collaboration is required between development and operations teams, and growth is achieved with flexible provisioning and scalability.

Being able to take needless work out of the system is more important than being able to put more work into the system.

- Gene Kim, Researcher & Author ("The Phoenix Project")

Approaching DevOps

When silos break down, business speeds up – a necessity in today’s world, where change is constant. Delivery needs to be faster, and fixes need to happen quickly. That’s where DevOps comes in.
While DevOps as a discipline has only been around for a decade, HighVail has been mastering IT operations and the underlying technology for much longer, evolving from enterprise servers and virtualization to container platforms and automation.
