DevOps by Futran reflects the full potential of the software methodology panning across different aspects like collaboration, monitoring, automation, toolchain pipelines, and cloud adoption. As an offering, our DevOps services facilitate rapid application onboarding by automating delivery pipelines from one end to the other and breeding continued development and integration across a set of highly-rated industrial cloud platforms.
With integrated DevOps consulting, we help enterprises and startups of all makes and models put their operations and development teams in alignment, giving them the ground to achieve greater efficiency, land more intuitive software builds, identify emerging issues faster than ever before and preserve the saleability of the code at all times.
With DevOps as a service, we provide:
After throwing a look at the present setup and collating a list of the ideal workflows, the continuous delivery pipeline is set up by our team. At the time of automating the pipeline, risks like faulty deployment and bad productivity are mitigated with the help of our robust, fault-proof ecosystem and licensed tools.
CI/CD (Continuous Integration Continuous Deployment)
CI/CD has come to be the industry benchmark to frequently make and deliver apps with the help of bespoke automation in different stages of app development. The three main components that constitute the CI/CD model are Continuous Integration, Continuous Delivery, and Continuous Deployment. Industry experts have hailed CI/CD as a solution to most/all the problems that arise from integrating new code into the development as well as operative parts of the process.
Catering to nuances, CI/CD injects ever-evolving automation coupled with ongoing monitoring throughout the development, testing and deployment lifecycle of apps. Ushering the more “agile” method of app making, these connected practices together make what we call the “CI/CD pipeline”, greatly reducing collaborative woes of the operations and development teams.
Modern app development is all about letting multiple developers (development teams) loose on different features of the same app simultaneously. However, there is still the issue of all development teams merging all the branches of the source code seamlessly on a given day (often referred to as the “merge day”). Such work can be tedious and sapping for development teams. This generally results from an isolated developer making a change to a part of an app, creating ripples of conflict with more changes made by the rest of the developers in other parts of the app.
With Continuous Integration (CI), developers have the ability to collaborate with the rest of the team on a shared branch, merging their codes at each step. These mergers happen on a periodic, often daily basis. Once the changes each developer make to the application are merged in the “trunk”, they earn validation by automatically creating the application and running automated testings (mostly unit and integration tests) at different levels of the application. This way, each member of the team can easily know if they’ve broken the app at some point in the code implementation.
Continuous Integration is the quickest way to test just about everything from classes to functions to different modules that may be potentially damaging to the organic wholeness of the app. Even if conflicts between code sets are discovered during automated testing sessions, CI makes it quite easy to fix smaller bugs more frequently.
In all mature CI/CD pipelines, the final stage is continuous deployment. While continuous delivery automates releasing a production-ready build into a central repository of code, continuous deployment automates the part that comes right after – releasing the app into production. Owing to the lack of manual gates at the stage of the pipeline right before the production, there is a great impetus on neatly designed test automation in continuous deployment.
For all pragmatic purposes, continuous deployment helps a developer’s rewritten code go live into production within minutes of the revision (given that the code is compact enough to pass automatic testing). This makes it all the more simple to receive and implement user feedback in the continuum.
Put together, each step in the CI/CD pipeline work to make app deployment less risky, making it easier to release changes in the app in small pieces, rather than having to rewrite a chunk of the code at once. On the flip side, there will be some major investments upfront. That is because a range of automated tests will need to be written to accommodate the different testing and release stages in the CI/CD pipeline.
