Implementing Modern DevOps

By: Danny Varghese, David Gonzalez

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.

This is the final chapter of the book. Through the entire book, we visited the most important tools used by DevOps engineers, with a strong focus on the Google Cloud Platform. In this chapter, we experimented with what, in my opinion, is a very important aspect of any system: monitoring. I am of the opinion that monitoring is the best way to tackle problems once they have hit your production systems, which, no matter how much effort you put in it, will eventually happen.

What is next?

This book did not go particularly in deep into any subject. This is intended. This book is meant to plant the seed of a big tree: the culture of DevOps, hoping that you have enough information to keep growing your knowledge of DevOps tools and processes.

Keeping yourself up to date with the latest tools is a full-time job on its own, but it's very necessary if you want to be on the top of the wave. My opinion is that we are very lucky to be able to participate in the rise and shine of the DevOps culture...
