What Exactly Is DevOps Anyway?
Way back in 2006, Amazon CTO Werner Vogels got the ball rolling when he famously said, “Giving developers operational responsibilities has greatly enhanced the quality of the services, both from a customer and a technology point of view. The traditional model is that you take your software to the wall that separates development and operations, throw it over, and then forget about it. Not at Amazon. You build it; you run it. This brings developers into contact with the day-to-day operation of their software.”
While the “you build it, you run it” mantra has become synonymous with DevOps, the actual application has not been so clear for many organizations. Dozens of articles and Reddit posts would seem to indicate that there is a very big range of opinions on this topic.
