DevOps Pipeline

DevOps is gaining momentum among software development companies to build high-quality software at high velocity.

To implement DevOps in any organization, you need to create a DevOps pipeline.

A pipeline in software development consists of set of tools, flows, and automated processes, enabling teams to leverage technologies to build and deploy software.

Core components of DevOps pipelines:

  • Continuous Integration Tools –merge code in a central repository
  • Continuous Deployment Tools – configuration and infrastructure management
  • Continuous Testing Tools– automated tests

CI/CD pipeline must be well-defined as per the organizational structure to create a modern DevOps environment along with strong collaboration and automated processes.

The DevOps pipeline can be summed up as:

  • Write code
  • Test the code
  • Deploy on server
  • Test and feedback
  • Fix issues
  • Deploy server in the live environment (production)
  • Constant monitor and measure
  • Repeat this process

This well-structured pipeline strengthens organization’s ability to deliver faster with frequent releases, emphasizing on continuous improvement and enhanced customer satisfaction.

Best DevOps Pipeline Tools:

  • Jenkins
  • Azure DevOps Pipeline
  • BitBucket
  • GitLab CI
  • Artifactory
  • JMeter
