re: DevOps And The Perpetual Motion Machine
DevOps to me is a fundamental concept of cloud computing. Your development environment and deployment environment are the same, or at least highly similar, You follow as many standardized practices as you can and you try to get to easily updated, highly automated operations. To study DevOps, watch how Google and Amazon do things.But they of course didn't start out with the non-uniform, greatly varied environment of the typical enterprise data center,.It's moving that environment forward that's the tough part.
