With automation tools that allow increasingly more IT datacenters and shops to run 24 by 7 by 365, it’s going to be an exciting 2017. In the DevOps world there is going to be increased efficiencies to shrink development cycles and ensure that the friction in moving from development to test and production is minimized.

Check out the following blog post by Johan Louwers for a more in depth look Oracle Cloud – Changing the tool chain for DevOps

 

Other continuing trends will be moving away from monolithic applications to micro services architecture and Containers like Docker and Kubernetes. Without the overhead of virtual machines, containers allow applications to contain all the runtime code including databases, libraries and tools to run seamlessly on any cloud infrastructure.

 

With continuous integration and continuous deployment models in the Cloud, DevOps along with Containers and Microservices allow for easy deployment and minimal support resources for your IT needs.

 

Stay tuned for more details of how Oracle, can help in each of these areas  in upcoming posts and articles.
