Dev ops is a software stratagem that enables small to mid-size to large organizations to deliver new features /CR to users as fast and efficiently as possible. The core idea of Dev ops is to create a repeatable, reliable and incrementally improving process for taking software from concept to client. The goal of Continuous Delivery is to enable a constant flow of changes into production via an automated software production line. The Continuous Delivery pipeline is what makes it all happen.
This pipeline consists of various stages stacked one after another.
Build automation and Continuous Integration Stage
The pipeline starts with check-in into the private fork of the main branch; check-in has to be in private fork and every check-in must be reviewed and built successfully before it’s merged into the main branch. Post-check-in to the main branch there has to be a triggered for continuous built and unit test execution. This is the most direct feedback cycle that informs the development team about the health of their application code.
Test Automation Stage
Throughout this stage, the new version of an application is rigorously tested to ensure that it passes to all functional, security, and performance criteria. The stage may involve different types of automated activities for functional and performance testing.
Deployment Automation Stage
A deployment is required every time the application is ready for staging(QA/DEV/UAT) or prod environment, and the critical thing is the time required for the deployment. If the deployment is automated, then it will be a reliable delivery of new functionality to users within minutes if needed.
Platform Provisioning and Configuration Management For Pipeline
The deployment pipeline is supported by an automatic spawn of the platform with provisioning and system configuration management, which allow teams to create, configure and kill down complete environments automatically or at the push of a button.
Making all automated
The multiple-step in a deployment pipeline involves different groups of people work as cohesive units to manage the release of the new version of the application. Release and pipeline orchestration provide a top-level view of the entire pipeline, allowing you to define and control the step and gain insight into the overall software delivery process.
