Without tools, it’s hard to automate. Without automation, DevOps is moredream than reality. Thus, tooling is a critical part of making the transition.
There are more important parts of DevOps than tools, but tools are very muchnecessary. Choosing the right tools is, therefore, critical to DevOps success.
There are a variety of tools that support a DevOps transformation, whether it’susing a tool at the bottom level of daily operation or tying together the manyother tools into a complete operation.
This Whitepaper provides a summary of the use cases for the tools used inDevOps.
Scrum and Kanban are a form of Agile softwaremethodologies. Agile software development is an approach under whichrequirements and solutions evolve through the collaborative effort ofself-organizing and cross-functional teams and their customers and end users.
Spinnaker was built to be multi cloud so there is a strong case forusing it to deploy to cloud services like AWS and FCP but the way Kuberneteswas built makes it a perfect fit for spinnaker.
DevOps teams use Octopus to automate even the most complicateddeployments. Octopus comes with over 300+ deployment steps, and support fordeployment patterns like Canary, Blue/Green and rolling deployments.
GitLab’s Integrated CD solutions allows you to ship code with zero touch be iton one or one thousands server. deployments can be automated to multipleenvironments like staging and production, and the system just know what to dowithout being told – even for more advanced patterns like canary deployments
Unit Test Framework tools:
identifying issues (performance,regression, or otherwise) and fixing them quickly as part of a team’s iteration.
Key things to consider:
Based on the above, Inventive-IT recommends:
The other side of the coin to application performance monitoring isinfrastructure monitoring.
There are many, many tools for this, including SaaS solutions such asPrometheus and DataDog.
Analysing logs is a crucial part of the iterative improvement cycle and is acritical part of system troubleshooting, debugging, and security incidentresponse.
Popular log analysis tools include:
ELK = Elasticsearch, Logstash & Kibana
As you tell from reading this Whitepaper, there are a wide array of availabletools that can be used for DevOps.
Inventive-IT offers free assessments to review your tech stack for DevOps toidentify which tools would be best for your organization.

CI/CD pipeline security entails securing everything that passes through your software pipeline, but the pipeline itself might become a target. You can put a halt to it with these CI/CD precautions. Many companies make the transition from DevOps to DevSecOps by including continuous security validation into their CI/CD pipelines. A shift-left approach incorporates security into […]
With the increasing vitality and complexity of cloud strategies, it becomes the responsibility of cloud architects to help companies eliminate risk and drive a successful, inexpensive transition to the cloud.
