While some people think the cloud is driving the increased popularity of DevOps, it’s really the opposite. DevOps makes transitioning to the cloud easier because it automates app modernization and facilitates Infrastructure as Code, allowing things to happen quickly.
One final note about this topic. Change can be difficult for some organizations and making the most of the combined power of DevOps and the cloud does involve a cultural shift. It eliminates siloes between the development and operations teams and revises roles.
Teams will need to learn who drives the process and look at both the “what” and “how” of incorporating a DevOps strategy to drive cloud computing development and growth.
Developers no longer push code over the wall to the Ops team and hope that applications work in the cloud. Instead, these teams work together to ensure that they do perform and determine collectively how to improve these apps, if needed.
Ultimately, adopting this move to DevOps and the cloud will give developers faster access to development environments while streamlining development processes. DevOps also drives the Infrastructure as Code and automation needed to reduce cloud complexity, keeping resources in check and secure.
By creating a holistic environment, DevOps puts development and operations teams on the proverbial same page in the cloud environment, one that will be more elastic and efficient because of this effort.
