In the manufacturing and building of innovative products, the companies all around the world do lots of efforts by investing their time and money. The competition is very high in the market and it is very critical to maintain business activities and stand in the market. In earlier decades the operations and development team work together for making the release cycles long. In the last few years, the formation of Cloud DevOps helps in maintaining the flexible relationship between Development and Operation teams. This makes both the teamwork together with efficiency and sync between the teams also improves.
The time improvement in the market and make business agile is the work of DevOps but instead of this it also helps in the automated delivery pipeline. The various large scale industries adapt Remote DevOps such as retail, supply chains, manufacturing, etc. Large size companies are taking the maximum benefits of Cloud and DevOps. The implementation of automation for startups is the main growing challenge. Before riding DevOps, startups need to evaluate multiple technical considerations.
Important technical things to consider for startups while choosing Dev-Ops
In the anatomy of startups, automation is a very important part. It reduces redundant processes and human efforts. This is required in various techniques like complications of code, testing, quality assurance, monitoring, and reporting. The outcomes can be unexpected if one used various automation tools simultaneously. The lifecycle of the entire product should be carefully evaluating and takes into consideration.
The tagging of resources is one of the best practices. Some of the development teams forget to do tag resources. It will be very difficult and time-consuming to find the identity of instance, volume, load balancer, etc., without tagging. The tagged resources can be monitored by taking the help of various tools and alerts.
The startups need to be active, flexible, scalable, and consistent for keeping pace with consumer expectations. Dockerization is also known as container-based virtualization. This helps in quickly gaining traction. Also, this is done because every startup company doesn’t have proper virtual machines for local, development, or testing environments and this will be very challenging for them. The main advantages of Dockers are that they are light, cost-effective, portable, reusable, and simple. Startups need to bring Development and Operation closer by using Dockerization and take its benefits.
Utilization of resources
The resources in real-time that remain cost-effective are provisioning or de-provisioning. For example – in seasonal time the e-commerce companies gain more profit than usual. The startups that don’t monitor the needs of the company will fail in provision resources and also cost raise as well as built poor user experience. The modern startups lead to implementing auto-scaling. This will maintain the availability of the applications and capacity scaling automatically goes up and down.
“Only large size companies require continuous monitoring while startups don’t need it.” This is a big myth. The main issue that develops in a startup is over-provisioning and continuous infrastructure monitoring will resolve this issue and along with this, it can solve other major problems. For improving their business and managing time startups should use monitoring tools as this will alert you about the improvement and automate your resources.
The main aspect while products that every company should consider is portability. The product built for legacy platforms but its poor performance leads to the failure of the product. The startups should manufacture and built those products that are easy to move to on different platforms like AWS, Azure. Google-cloud, etc. The portability part should always take into consideration by startup companies.
