Continuous Integration(CI/CD) tools

Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) is one of the features of the DevOps process, this whole process is time consuming by default. Our DevOps consultants overcome this handicap by using tools which tailor made to overcome the time constraints. Our DevOps consultants automate the entire cycle of build, provisioning, and the deployment process, Our DevOps consultants also use multiple tools, scripts, and test data to ensure rapid delivery.

Jenkins is an open-source virtual server coded in Java designed specially for continuous integration and continuous iterations. Jenkins is an very useful tool for developers, as it helps to build and test software continuously, all while monitoring externally-run executions. It increases the scale of automation and is quickly gaining popularity in DevOps circles. Jenkins requires little maintenance and has built-in GUI tool for easy updates. Jenkins provides customized solution as there are over 400 plugins to support building and testing virtually any project. Jenkins is a software that allows continuous integration. Jenkins will be installed on a server where the central build will take place. Jenkins is a powerful application that allows continuous integration and continuous delivery of projects, regardless of the platform you are working on. It is a free source that can handle any kind of build or continuous integration. You can integrate Jenkins with a number of testing and deployment technologies. Our DevOps consultants have proved their expertise with Jenkins support again and again. It must be said that Jenkins is one of the favourite DevOps tool of our DevOps consultants.

Configuration Management

Configuration management (CM) tools usually track updates, changes, code improvements and the versions that have been applied to software code repository, the tracking also covers locations and network addresses of hardware devices. If a system ever needs a software or hardware upgrade, the developers can access the Configuration management program and access the database to see what are the updates are currently installed and helps the developer then to make a more informed decision about the upgradations and features needed.

The chef is the best known as an infrastructure automation platform and is very popular with our DevOps service provider, it is a straightforward scripting language which turns infrastructure into the code, one thing why Chef is popular and popular in DevOps community. This unique ability of Chef reduces all the unpredictability associated with configuring, even with quite complicated operational environments to the simple computer program one that DevOps teams can manage as they would any other code. Chef sets the bar for DevOps automation across the DevOps tools landscape according to our DevOps service providers. The advantage of Chef is the feature of infrastructure as code translates as the code is flexible, reachable and traceable code changes, codes are human readable and easily testable according to the changes to the main repository.

Puppet is a tool that helps DevOps service providers in managing the IT infrastructure especially associated with configuration management of DevOps services at a considerably faster speed without compromising on security concerns and accuracy issues. Puppet is a configuration management tool that assists our DevOps service providers to automate the provisioning, configuration, and management of a server infrastructure. It runs on many platforms such as may open source OS, Linux, Microsoft Windows and with its declarative language to describe configuration to provide customized configuration management options. Puppet is made by Puppet Labs, the brainchild of Luke Kanies in 2005. It is written and coded in Ruby and was released as free software under the GNU General Public License (GPL) until version 2.7.0 and the Apache License 2.0 after that.

Ansible is an open source, powerful automation software for configuring, managing and deploying software applications on remote nodes. According to our DevOps service providers, Ansible is designed for multi-tier deployments since day one, Ansible models IT infrastructure by describing how all of the nodes interrelate, rather than just managing one node at a time. To perform these configuration management operations, no downtime is required on either the controller machine (where Ansible is present) or the machines that are provisioned to run through it. In addition, there is no need for agents running on the remote hosts (unlike the competition in this category) just a passwordless SSH connection between the controller system and the remote nodes. Ansible works by connecting all the nodes and by pushing out small programs, called "Ansible modules" to the remote nodes. These Ansible programs are written to be resource models of the desired state of the system or as the desired output of the program.

Container Orchestration Tools

Containers are defined as software which provides an enterprise-level framework for integrating and managing containers at a required scale. These tools are aimed to simplify the otherwise complicated container management process and provide a framework, which is not only suited for defining the initial container deployment parameters but also for managing the multiple containers entities as one single entity for the purposes of availability, scaling, and networking metrics.

Kubernetes is a portable, extensible, open-source platform for managing containerized workloads and services, that facilitates both declarative configuration and automation. It has a large, rapidly growing ecosystem. Kubernetes services, support, and tools are widely available. Kubernetes provides you with a framework to run distributed systems resiliently. It takes care of scaling and failover for your application, provides deployment patterns, and more. For example, Kubernetes can easily manage a canary deployment for your system.

AWS offers services that give you a secure place to store and manage your container images, orchestration that manages when and where your containers run, and flexible compute engines to power your containers. AWS can help manage your containers and their deployments for you, so you don't have to worry about the underlying infrastructure. No matter what you're building, AWS makes it easy and efficient to build with containers. Amazon Elastic Container Service (Amazon ECS) is a fully managed container orchestration service that provides the most secure, reliable and scalable way to run containerized applications. Amazon Elastic Kubernetes Service (Amazon EKS) is a fully managed Kubernetes service that provides the most secure, reliable, and scalable way to run containerized applications using Kubernetes.

Code Repository Tools

Code Repository tools are a set of software tools which help a software development team to manage and track changes to source code over time. Code Repository tools keeps track of every modification to the codes in the database. If a mistake is made or a bug arises which does not seem to go away, developers can always turn back to earlier versions of the code to compare, this helps to fix the mistake while minimizing disruption and time consumption to the team.

The largest hub of source code in the world and trusted since its release in 2008. Github provides both distributed version control and source code management (SCM) functionalities. The large community of Github has made it a popular destination for aspiring developers and for those who want to step up their game. According to our DevOps consultants, Github is also popular due to its overall simplicity of use and navigation, the expertise of the community and the frequent updates which it provides. Features like integrated code search, bug tracking, and availability of servers. Our DevOps experts say that Github has transformed how companies and organizations view the CD/CI process due to Github, the version control tools have changed how codes are tracked and managed.

Used by NASA, IBM, Sony, Alibaba and SpaceX and written in Google’s in-house code Go. According to our DevOps consultants, the popularity of Gitlab comes due to the multitude of features which Gitlab provides. It has to be also noted that Gitlab provides the largest of tools to even the free users. Features such as CI/CD tools, cycle analytics, issue boards, time tracking, etc. The enterprise version of this tool comes with even more tools which basically blows away the competition. Another feature of Gitlab is security and privacy of the codes, according to our DevOps consultants Gitlab has easy compatibility with all the tools discussed here.
