DevOps

What is DevOps?

Nowadays, «DevOps» has many diverse meanings, there is simply no precise definition. We define it as an approach and a process based on:

  • disruption of boundaries, rejection of the classical separation of Operation & Development as well as any other artificially built “walls” between professionals engaged in the common business;
  • direct, continuous interaction with developers.

The technical implementation is an integral part of it. In essense, it's assisting the process of application development with continuous delivery of modifications (bug fixes, improvements, innovations). This delivery workflow “ends” with having the latest release in production and being sure it has everything required for its reliable operation. Then, another release comes and the whole workflow is repeated.


The task of DevOps engineers is to accompany developers and help them automate routines during all stages of application lifecycle. This collaboration starts from building the code, goes through deploying and testing it, and comes to a comprehensive maintaining when the application is run (it includes monitoring, scaling and other similar activities). The best effect is achieved if the interaction begins at the earliest stages: design of the application's architecture and choice of technologies. However, a full-fledged DevOps transformation is possible for mature projects as well.

We believe DevOps is the synergy achieved through this interaction. Important consequences of this approach are openness to communications, focus on results, and continuous learning. They become the common values of everyone who works on the project.
