10 Services Deployed Exclusively with DevOps

DevOps makes application deployment faster and enables businesses towards agile software development.

A majority of enterprises adopt DevOps for application development projects. For generating deliverables faster and better, DevOps also deploys specific services. These services, below, are prevalently deployed with the use of DevOps tools.

  1. Database Server

WhileDevOps Services primarily focuses on building source code and deploying applications, it also has the capability to add databases to the CI/CD pipelines of app development projects. For automating the app deployment process, developers face challenges in database integration.

DevOps tools such as Redgate, DBmaestro, and Delphix mitigate these challenges by automating the database server deployment. Similarly, Microsoft’s Azure DevOps offers continuous database deployments for cloud-based data-intensive app development projects.

 2. Cloud-based Hosting

Cloud computing services are actively deployed by using DevOps automation tools. Technology-native businesses procure the computing resources from a cloud service provider. DevOps tools such as GCP Cloud Console, AWS CodeDeploy and Azure DevTest Labs share these resources to the host data, solutions and services. DevOps provides a unified platform for production, testing, and deployment of hosts on the cloud. Public and private cloud environments, both, support DevOps systematically.

3. Version Control

App developers integrate version control tools to maintain the source code throughout the development process. For several projects, these tools are deployed as version control services. Perforce, Stash, and AccuRev SCM are some of the DevOps tools used to deploy version control for application development projects. With effective source code management (SCM), version control services deployed by DevOps, create reliable databases that contain data on every modification made in the source code.

4. Containerized Web Applications

Web applications can be deployed without releasing a virtual machine (VM) entirely for each app. This service is called application containerization. Without launching the dedicated VMs, DevOps can deploy web applications and run distributed applications through OS virtualization. Containerized web applications are deployed as multiple isolated services or applications. They access the same OS kernel and function on a single-host runtime environment (RTE). Kubernetes and Docker are primarily used to deploy these scalable web applications.

5. Private Clouds

DevOps has transformed the cloud deployment approach, particularly for private clouds. Infra provisioning tools in DevOps, namely Terraform, are facilitating the on-demand cloud deployment services. Private cloud services and infrastructure deployed by DevOps are hosted within the client company’s data center.

Once deployed, the users of the private cloud are able to use and share the proprietary resources within the company’s intranet. While providing private cloud services, DevOps also enables the company with ease in admin operations, maintenance, and management of the private cloud.

6. ASP.NET Applications

In order to build dynamic websites and applications, programmers employ web development services such as ASP.NET. Currently, DevOps offers ASP.NET service as a server-side open-source web application framework.

Jenkins and Octopus Deploy are some of the tools that handle the requests and file repositories. The ASP.NET application environment is created by DevOps, which allows programmers to use additional web development tools in the CI/CD phase.

7. Windows Services

To develop an application that runs as a Windows Service, developers need advanced tools. DevOps furnishes these tools and makes the Windows Service deployment easy. DevOps manages the Windows Service deployment by smoothly integrating the long-running functionalities. Debugging tools are used to rectify the code, adopt the changes, and implement them in the final service output.

8. Process Automation

Automation of the DevOps process, in itself, is a deployable service. Developers can create real-time reports to monitor the different stages of application development. Each stage or process is equipped with DevOps automation tools that consolidate every action being undertaken in the project. Process automation services deployed by DevOps integrate data across other DevOps tools. This data integration is directed towards the path for automatic storage in the central repository destination.

9. Amazon EC2

Growing enterprises need scalable computing capacity to build large applications and run them across a vast user-base. Amazon EC2 (Elastic Cloud Compute) is a prominent service deployed exclusively with the help of DevOps. It reduces the infrastructure costs by integrating the computing operations with AWS Cloud solutions.

With Amazon EC2, applications are developed and deployed faster. DevOps tools that support the Amazon EC2 service are responsible to handle spikes in data usage and traffic. Security configuration and storage scalability are also the key operations of Amazon EC2 executed by using DevOps.

10. AWS Lambda

DevOps also deploy popular computer services such as AWS Lambda. The service is integrated with DevOps tools that help it run codes without managing servers. Codes are executed in the absence of provisioning, and AWS Lambda renders the code virtually without any need for manual administration.

Deployment of these services using DevOps gets further diversified based on the client requirements and business challenges. With its improved operational support and cross-technology expertise, DevOps continues to be a preferred deployment system for app development and infrastructure services.

Is an OLED screen worth it?

OLED monitors tend to have faster pixel response times and better contrast ratios, although their very high prices make them much less accessible than ordinary LCD monitors.

As such, we do not yet recommend purchasing an OLED monitor, as a high-quality LCD monitor will be fully capable of providing a satisfying experience at much lower prices.

OLED technology has been around for a while, but it's only just starting to break into the monitor and TV market. Even so, screens using this technology remain few and more importantly - they are expensive.

So what is the reason for the exorbitant price of most OLED monitors, and what are their advantages and disadvantages compared to ordinary LCD monitors?

OLED vs LCD display technology

Whenever you see a screen marketed as an “LED” monitor, it usually means an LED LCD screen. To be more specific, it uses LED backlighting, but it's the LCD technology that does most of the work.

On the other hand,

OLED technology has no active backlight. Instead, each pixel is independently lit and works as its own light source.

This has many implications for the quality and performance of a screen.

Contraste OLED vs LCD

OLED screens have been present in smartphones for a long time.

In fact, Samsung’s first Galaxy S phone used OLED, although the technology was much less refined at the time.

For years, smartphone users have debated the merits of the LCD vs OLED display, and everything that can be said about it also applies to larger displays.

OLED displays can achieve much higher contrast because they can display true black by simply turning off pixels.

On the other hand, any screen with active backlight cannot completely block the light, so that black is displayed in dark gray. Certainly, some panels (like VA) are better for displaying blacks, but they still don't match the OLEDs in this department.

Speaking of backlighting, there is a common problem that LED LCD screens to call bleeding from the backlight. When this happens, some of the light “bleeds” on the screen, leading to inconsistent blacks.

This can happen either as irregular white spots (so-called "clouds") or as visibly brighter areas at the corners or along the edges of the screen.

Since OLED displays do not use active backlighting, they do not have this problem. Overall, OLED wins hands down in this regard.

Observation angles

A viewing angle determines the width of the angle from which the display can be viewed without any visible loss of image quality. As you move outside the specified viewing angle of the screen, the color distortion begins to become visible.

OLED screens have excellent viewing angles, mainly because there is very little space behind the screen for the light to diffract.

The situation with LCD screens is a little more complicated since the viewing angles depend mainly on the type of panel used. So, for example, a good IPS panel can easily match the viewing angles of an OLED, while a TN panel can't even get close to it.

OLED color reproduction

The most remarkable and often the most marketable quality of a screen is its ability to dazzle the viewer with its vibrant and realistic color reproduction.

In most cases, OLED and LCD screens are on flat ground in this regard.

However, as with viewing angles, the color accuracy of an LCD screen depends mainly on the panel used. IPS and VA panels tend to have excellent color reproduction, while colors produced by TN panels tend to look quite washed out.

HDR is a display technology with a simple goal: to make the displayed image appear as close to reality as possible. This is achieved by creating a more realistic contrast and producing a more intense light.

Now, as we have already determined, OLED definitely has the advantage in terms of contrast. However, LCD screens can still hold on by having a more powerful backlight. Both technologies are quite capable of producing good HDR, so, once again, we have a tie.

Performance - Refresh rate and response time

Well, first of all, you'll be happy to know that modern OLED displays are quite capable of achieving such high refresh rates. In addition, their theoretical limits are very high, so that they could reach even higher refresh rates one day, but this is not necessary.

As for response times, they literally overwrite LCD screens as they can have response times as low as 0.1ms. During this time, the fastest TN panels cannot go down to 1ms.

We are inclined to give the OLED focus, mainly because of the much faster response times.

OLED vs LCD screen price

And now the big question - is an OLED screen worth it?

As we said before, OLED displays are very expensive and will remain so for the foreseeable future. More importantly, it is not only that they are expensive, but that they are of questionable value. Their only concrete and the tangible advantage is their superior contrast.

That said, we will have to give this round to the LCD screens. A good LCD monitor will be more than capable of equaling an OLED in terms of visual quality and performance.

Conclusion Should we buy an OLED screen?

Overall, we do not yet recommend purchasing an OLED display.

As is often the case with (relatively) new technologies, it takes time to perfect them and to truly penetrate the market. Do you remember when the first 4K TVs started to roll out and cost thousands of euros?

Now you can get a 4K TV for less than € 300. Not really a good 4K TV, but a 4K all the same.

It will be the same with OLED in the years to come. Manufacturing processes will improve, the technology itself will improve, and prices will eventually fall to more affordable three-digit numbers.
