DevOps isn't a tool or a product. It's an approach to operations. By uniting development and operations teams to automate and standardize processes for infrastructure deployment, you get faster innovation, accelerated time to market, improved deployment quality, better operational efficiency, and more time to focus on your core business goals.
A successful transformation starts with a culture that breaks down traditional development/operations silos, promotes communication between everyone involved in delivering applications, and emphasizes constant process and product improvement.
Treating infrastructure as code (using tools like Chef, Windows PowerShell® DSC, StatsD/Graphite, Logstash, and Github) helps make operations a seamless fabric.
Continuously monitoring applications and environments iteratively improves code and processes. Constant improvement is central to DevOps, and you can't improve what you can't measure.
Combining siloed teams helps eliminate the pursuit of different—and often conflicting—goals and metrics. Sharing ideas and improvements, no matter where they originate, creates a vital feedback loop for the entire app delivery process.
Having a Rackspace team that is composed of experts that know how to follow all of the best practices on server automation is going to make our environment management much, much simpler.
