Overview of this book

This book follows a unique approach to modern DevOps using cutting-edge tools and technologies such as Ansible, Kubernetes, and Google Cloud Platform. This book starts by explaining the organizational alignment that has to happen in every company that wants to implement DevOps in order to be effective, and the use of cloud datacenters in combination with the most advanced DevOps tools to get the best out of a small team of skilled engineers. It also delves into how to use Kubernetes to run your applications in Google Cloud Platform, minimizing the friction and hassle of maintaining a cluster but ensuring its high availability. By the end of this book, you will be able to realign teams in your company and create a Continuous Delivery pipeline with Kubernetes and Docker. With strong monitoring in place, you will also be able to react to adverse events in your system, minimizing downtime and improving the overall up-time and stability of your system.

On this chapter we have seen how we should align our resources (engineers) to deliver low cost and high impact IT systems. We have seen how a poor communication can lead into a defective release process deadlocking our rollouts and making the system quite inefficient from the business point of view. Through the rest of the book, we are going to look at tools that can help us not only to improve this communication but also enable our engineers to deliver more top quality functionality with lower costs.

The first of these set of tools are described on the next chapter: the cloud data centers. These data centers allow us to create resources (VMs, networks, load balancers...) from their pool of resources in order to satisfy our needs of specific hardware, at a very reasonable price and flexibility. These type of cloud data centers are being adopted more and more by the modern (and not so modern) IT companies, which is leading to the creation of a set of tools to automate pretty much everything around the infrastructure.
