What Is the Difference Between CloudOps And DevOps?

Most business managers get confused between CloudOps and DevOps easily. And it is a way too common problem so here we are drawing a line between CloudOps and DevOps that can help the business managers understand the basic difference between CloudOps and DevOps.

As the name proposes, DevOps is a mix of ”Development” and ”Operations”, and depicting it as “specialized deft” appears to be shockingly exact. A bunch of practices and processes assist associations with making a spry, cooperative climate that unites software development, IT tasks, and quality designing to fulfill the basic business operations such as:

  • Abbreviate development cycles.
  • Minimize product time to market.
  • Execute constant advancements.
  • Guarantee project alignment with organizational objectives.
  • Provide top-notch products to fulfill client expectations and requirements.

The execution of DevOps assists organizations with further enhancing product development cycles, tools, and efficiencies to establish a superior work environment and to add an incentive for clients constantly.

DevOps: A Culture of Finishing Stuff

As pioneers in the industry, we (in some cases) tend to over-designing things and that is how I accept we manage cascades. 

While the possibility of Big-Design-Up-Front could have been okay a long time back while composing a program required two or three hours and compiling it required a long time, it just does not make a difference any longer.

DevOps is a philosophy that incorporates the development and IT operation teams of the organizations, to smooth out cycles and methods related to software development, system updates, and the goal of execution issues. 

Working on the communication among development and IT teams takes into consideration the more prominent cooperative open door, determined to diminish how much time is important to convey programming or updates while likewise limiting interruptions like blackouts or downtime. 

Integrating development and testing with tasks and support into one strong DevOps team considers a more thorough perspective on the qualities and weaknesses of a system or application.

More noteworthy spryness and functional improvements are two of the main targets of DevOps and a digital transformation that consolidates cloud development can work with those objectives. 

CloudOps is short for Cloud Operations and is the most common way of recognizing and characterizing the proper functional systems to upgrade IT administrations inside the cloud climate. It is the summit of DevOps and conventional IT tasks applied to cloud-based models.

Effective cloud migration requires a thorough comprehension of the ongoing capacities of cloud assets as opposed to attempting to adjust existing functional ways to deal with fit into the cloud stage. 

Subsequently, CloudOps requires an authoritative wide difference in thinking. Veering off from standard tasks can be a difficult change, yet the brief inconvenience merits the advantages, which include:

  • Scalability

Cloud innovation permits you to increment or diminish the limit whenever you want without putting resources into extra space or equipment. Capability planning and asset management will become virtualized.

  • Automation

Cloud assets automate numerous activities across the SDLC, which prompts self-mending frameworks and diminishes disturbances to applications or clients.

  • Accessibility

An absence of onsite servers permits teams of organizations to oversee servers and tasks from any place.

  • Shared Resources

Distributed computing permits applications that share normal administrations to work well without being interconnected.

  • Backup Management

Since information is not stored centrally or in any physical location, catastrophe recuperation processes are naturally set up with cloud innovation.

  • Metered Costs

Cloud assets track utilization, making it simpler to allocate, manage and distribute costs.

  • Continuous Operations

Cloud-based frameworks consider constant activities since the software can be updated and sent without disturbance to support assuming that the appropriate systems are set up.

Best Practices of CloudOps

The progress from onsite servers to a public cloud supplier requires a critical change in outlook. Because of the rising ubiquity of distributed computing, it’s a change numerous associations are currently embracing. 

Involving CloudOps along with DevOps offers your activity more velocity, adaptability, and efficiency. Work with your team’s advancement to CloudOps by implementing the accompanying accepted procedures.

  • Empower Agility

It’s fundamental that your security or administration group is completely energetic about each part of distributed computing. 

In the event that groups neglect to cooperate and make the implementation process more troublesome, the final product will be less straightforward and an absence of generally speaking cohesiveness. 

Try not to make more limitations; all things considered, obviously characterize and execute important rules.

  • Empower Users

Despite the fact that cloud assets require administration management and configuration for security and consistency, DevOps groups are liable for the everyday utilization of the tools and technologies that deal with the cloud platform and would in a perfect world have input about assets. 

Allow your users to self-arrange their own machines, or to use auto-provisioning so applications demand more machines or abatement limits in view of utilization.

  • Automate Security

Diminishing security takes a chance by carrying out processes that utilize automation to test the configuration of cloud resources. 

Automating security checks and laying out clear consistent arrangements to be trialed by all teams of the organization guarantees consistency as your cloud impression develops and advances. 

Remediation can likewise be automated, permitting developers to moderate troubles without workflow disturbance.

  • Execute Redundancy

One of the goals of DevOps includes persistent activities and zero downtime. Cloud-based frameworks create persistent activities conceivable since the product can be refreshed or sent without disturbance to the application or administration. 

Executing automation and overt repetitiveness at both the cloud supplier layer and the application layer guarantees that the application will be accessible regardless of updates or software changes.

  • Facilitate Change Management

Lessening the time between thought evolution and product deployment is one of the essential objectives of DevOps, however, changing the management can create its own work process bottleneck. 

Empower collaboration between cloud security and change the executives by setting up processes that will not impede the development cycle. Automate change demand tickets and coordinate a spry change to the board framework that urges all groups to work flawlessly.

  • Constant Advancement

An effective CloudOps procedure is definitely not a one-size-fits-all methodology and can not be achieved in a solitary step. A definitive objective is to incorporate a few groups with various concentrations and ranges of abilities into one completely coordinated activity. 

Accomplishing that requires an evaluation of existing qualities and shortcomings among colleagues and specialized strategies, as well as choices about administration, tools, cycles, and financial planning of the board. 

Make an arrangement for the underlying temporary time frame as well as for distinguishing future streamlining opportunities.

Conclusion

Even if you have a clear understanding of the working of CloudOps and DevOps, it is advisable to reach out to the DevOps Implementation team to get accurate results.

What is a Bare Git Repository?

While using git you must have come across some questions like:

  • If git is a Distributed Version Control System then where is the remote repo of git stored in our system?
  • Why can’t we directly push into or clone from our local repository?
  • Can I host my own private remote repository just like GitLab or GitHub for my own small project?
  • What if there was no GitLab or GitHub or Bitbucket or… I mean… you got the point, right?

Well… and answer to all these questions is the same and that is a Bare Git Repository.

LET’S GET STARTED

First things first, what is a Bare Git Repository and how is it different from a normal Git Repository.

AWS Gateway LoadBalancer: A Load Balancer that we deserve

Nowadays, LoadBalancing is one of the basic needs for the application systems to perform optimally while considering some important factors like- scalability and high availability. Every cloud is providing LBaaS (LoadBalancing as a Service) as an offering so the consumers don’t have to worry about the setup and management of load-balancers by themselves.

But it’s not like that cloud is offering a single type of load balancer for every use case because for different use-case we require a different type of load balancer. For example- we have different load-balancers for Layer4 and Layer7 level traffic.

Recently AWS had a new family member in their load-balancer family and they named it “Gateway Load Balancer“. So gateway load-balancer is a load-balancing service provided by AWS to send traffic to the different appliances, applications, firewalls, etc. that are not part of the current VPC.

Learn everything about Amazon Cloudfront

Before going to Cloudfront functionality, we need to understand the CDN (Content delivery network) first, as Cloudfront is nothing but just a FAAS  (functions as a service) platform provided by AWS, which we generally relate to the content delivery network(Cloudfront) in AWS cloud service provider.

CDN(Content Delivery Network)

A CDN is kind of a geographically distributed group of servers that are attached so that they can communicate with each other and provide fast delivery of any content such as HTML pages, images, videos, etc. The popularity of CDN services is continuously growing among organizations such as Netflix, Facebook, and Amazon as their major web traffic is served through CDN.

Now, let’s take a deep understanding of how CDN works in the AWS Cloudfront service.

We could think of a CDN as an ATM. Having a cash machine on practically every corner makes it fast, immediate access, and efficient to get money. There’s no wait time in long bank lines to get our money in hand.

In today’s time, a large portion of all internet content is delivered through CDNs. Here is a simple example:

Azure HA Kubernetes Monitoring using Prometheus and Thanos

Introduction

Long since Prometheus took on the role of monitoring the systems, it has been the undisputed open-source leader for monitoring and alerting in Kubernetes systems, it has become a go-to solution. While Prometheus does some general instructions for achieving high availability but it has limitations when it comes to data retention, historical data retrieval, and multi-tenancy. This is where Thanos comes into play. In this blog post, we will discuss how to integrate Thanos with Prometheus in Kubernetes environments and why one should choose a particular approach. So let’s get started.
