DevOps and Automation

The movement of workloads to the cloud has generated new requirements for responsiveness and repeatability. Many IT departments have migrated to the cloud in the same manner that they ran IT on-premise for the past 20 years. In this new era of micro services, automated testing, and infrastructure as code, IT’s success depends on its ability to work with stakeholders and adapt to changing requirements while maintaining reliable and automated results. DevOps and Automation are key to meeting these new expectations, but their success depends on a different approach and a change in culture.

Those who transition to the DevOps model and collaborate to integrate development and IT operations can rapidly pull away from their competitors in today’s fast-paced market.

Benefits

  • Confidence due to repeatable, controlled deployment process.
  • Features released sooner due to shorter release cycles.
  • Less bugs thanks to the elimination of manual errors and configuration drift.
  • Get it right the first time and have a higher quality that’s based on increased test coverage.

DevOps requires new skills, a new way of thinking, and a new place to start. To ease the transition, Logicalis has designed a DevOps service team. This team is comprised of experienced professionals who are ready to help with the following:

DevOps Assessments:
Know how your company uses automation to maintain higher quality, align with development organizations, and produce quicker and more reliable deployments. Understand what technology and process changes will help your organization respond to business needs and provide continuous improvement of all IT services.

Process Automation:
Start with manual processes that consume the organization’s time. Automate daily manual tasks such as reboots, provisioning, and patching cycles. Eliminate manual errors and reduce downtime of all affected products and services.

Compliance and Configuration Management:
Logicalis can automate your configuration deployment, maintain its compliance, and manage its lifecycle until the resources are returned to the pool using industry-leading, open source tools. Take the first step in supporting an Infrastructure as Code paradigm and create the building blocks necessary to move into full continuous automation.

Advanced Virtualization Use Cases:
Take advantage of your existing VMWare spend. Cut your turnaround time from weeks to minutes on standardized and compliant virtual machines. Utilize your existing automation and configuration management processes within the context of a greater process. Turn automated provisioning into IaaS, PaaS, and SaaS.

Continuous Improvement /Development for Infrastructure and Application Code:
Take an agile, iterative approach to the development of your infrastructure code. Form and manage your infrastructure code with the same processes and technology as your application code, and then deploy them together in a repeatable and manageable way. Deploy new features faster and more reliably with little manual interaction or cumbersome release management tools.
