The January Roundup @ Botmetric: Solidifying DevOps with NoOps on the Cloud

The first month of 2017 at Botmetric has ended on a good note. We launched one of most sought after feature every DevOps engineer on the cloud seeks to have it: Alert Analytics.

Plus, we have been contemplating more around how DevOps and NoOps on private cloud looks like in 2017 and beyond. We spoke about how DevOps drives cloud more than ever. Likewise, the DevOps community, for long, has been speaking about the emergence of NoOps. Especially around continuous software delivery, continuous security, and high-end business contribution.

But there seems to be a lot of confusion among the DevOps community, as most DevOps guys believe ‘NoOps’ is an Utopian paradise; and more so it is a threat to IT operations and would downsize the resources-in-line. However, the fact is NoOps is just minimizing the amount of time spent on Ops by a DevOps guy. To give a perspective to it, we spoke about what NoOps is through the eyes of a DevOps engineer.

Besides to further help the DevOps community, Botmetric is conscientiously working on improving its Ops & Automation product around it, to further define the future of cloud computing.
