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.
- 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.
