DevOps eBook Series: Getting Started on a DevOps Platform

October 25, 2019 by

DevOps is part culture, part process, and above all, the combination of developers and operations teams working in a coordinated, efficient, and automated way to rapidly deliver
production software changes without disruption. Two years ago, NetApp began its journey with a vision to build a DevOps platform to provide automation and CI/CD release models the
application development teams need to create cloud native applications using micro-services architectures running in containers.

We call the platform “CloudOne” as it delivers one consistent user experience, irrespective of the cloud destination, either private cloud or public cloud. Today we provide DevOps as
a Service and Infrastructure as a Service and will be offering Containers as a Service and Platform as a Service in the next 12-18 months.

Our DevOps journey has just begun—and it has not been perfect—but we are moving in the right direction. I want to share how we got started. This eBook covers how NetApp got started by acknowledging DevOps as the cultural change and organizing the team around roles, platforms, and delivery milestones. Key to our success has been thinking of DevOps like a train that rolls down a never-ending tracking, taking on new cars (features) and passengers (apps) with no end in sight.
