Operational support isn't just keeping the systems up. It provides crucial feedback back into the development cycle.
(digital music)…- Now we're going to shift gears a little…and discuss how to create feedback loops…from the actual production run time…back to development.…We'll be covering monitoring and instrumentation basics,…and how to take a whole Lean approach to this topic.…Before diving in, let's start with a little bit of theory.…Medical doctor Richard Cook wrote an excellent paper…called "How Complex Systems Fail."…Now he was primarily concerned with medical process failures…when he wrote it, but, you know, when you read it,…you'll swear he was talking about the IT systems…that you and I use.…
Here are a few of my favorite quotes from the paper.…Changes introduce new forms of failure.…Complex systems contain changing mixtures…of failures latent within them.…All complex systems are always running in a degraded mode.…You know, each one of these resonates with me,…and if you've had any time working around complex systems,…I bet they resonate with you as well.…It's this task of managing complex systems that makes…reliability engineering a really interesting topic.…
In this course, well-known DevOps practitioners Ernest Mueller and James Wickett provide an overview of the DevOps movement, focusing on the core value of CAMS (culture, automation, measurement, and sharing). They cover the various methodologies and tools an organization can adopt to transition into DevOps, looking at both agile and lean project management principles and how old-school principles like ITIL, ITSM, and SDLC fit within DevOps.
The course concludes with a discussion of the three main tenants of DevOps—infrastructure automation, continuous delivery, and reliability engineering—as well as some additional resources and a brief look into what the future holds as organizations transition from the cloud to serverless architectures.
