The DevOps Automation service provided by BayksCloud Consultants automates the entire software delivery process in the AWS cloud system.
We provide a Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CICD) systems using AWS services like AWS CodeBuild and AWS CodeDeploy to create an automation environment for the entire end-to-end release process so that every change to the software application results in a potential releasable package that is built automatically upon every commit. The advantage of this system is that it effectively eliminates the need for Integrations Testing because code is incrementally being integrated on daily basis, thereby removing costs associated with integration testing. This exercise helps to detect problems early in little amounts and as a result, it ensures higher application quality. Some of the third party tools we also use depending on our client’s needs can be found on here.
Our automated deployment provides a continuous delivery pipeline that automates deployments to test and production environments. This significantly reduces risks associated with deployments, manual intensive tasks, resource lag time and error prone from manual repetition. This gives our clients the option of deploying code multiple times per day without any degradation in service and a short or no downtime during releases. Releases are small which reduces the risk for system instabilities and customer user experience issues. If a release is bad, it is always easier to roll back because the number of changes per release is usually very small.
BayksCloud Consultants believes Continuous Monitoring across all phases of application development, testing and deployment as well as Continuous Feedback is very crucial in the adoption of DevOps Automation implementation. Continuous monitoring enhances continuous feedback. AWS services like CloudWatch and CloudTrail are very good monitoring tools. Other third party tools like Splunk for log analysis and New Relic to monitor the performance of application in a user’s perspective are just a few we use based on client’s requirements. These tools allow our engineers to better understand issues and metrics thereby ensuring the optimization of resources to reduce operational costs.
Please refer to the diagram on our DevOps Tools page to see the third party tools that can be used at each phase in the software delivery pipeline depending on customer’s requirements.
We use software development best practices in our approach to tackle Infrastructure as a Code (IaaC) by storing the code in a Code Repository with tags and braches for easy identification and releases the code just as if it were application software. AWS services such as CloudFormation and ElasticBeanStalk are just some of the IaaC used. The infrastructure code is continuously integrated, tested and deployed right along with the application software and it treated no differently.
DevOps Automation energies can also varies depending on the kind of commitment you prefer. If you are already thinking about it then consider the “30-Day Pipeline” and let us give you a tour of the realm of possibilities that await your business. If your organization is still using traditional ways of delivering software and you want to be abreast with the competition, or you already have a CICD system in place but still need optimization to deliver faster and reduce costs, then please use read more about our Initial Assessment process or fill the form below and one of our engineers will contact you to assess your needs.
