devops

DevOps can be defined as a set of activities that combines software development (Dev) and information-technology operations (Ops). It can be used to shorten the software development life cycle’s(SDLC) duration and deliver software applications at a faster pace while maintaining the maximum quality. However, there are several unexplored advantages of DevOps and this includes integrating DevOps and database management processes.This isbecause the DevOps teams includes several database administrators and integrating DevOps processes into database maintenance can provide a single team for the entire process. Also known as database DevOps, it offers the following advantages for companies.

Easier Management: DevOps enables the adoption of smaller batch cycles when compared to traditional methods of implementing the complete database’ scope at a single time. The advantage is that changes to the database can be segregated into smaller, more manageable chunks. Hence the functioning of the entire database won’t be affected, and updates can be made faster.

Massive Reduction in Errors & Outages: The normal method of making changes to a database are through SQL scripts and a proper analysis will be done only close to the time of release. Changes made in the last-minute could be more time-consuming, incur additional costs, and could cause the overlooking certain errors. Integrating the database in a DevOps process helps better build, deploy, test, and release phases with the use of key enablers. All these will be done within CI/CD processes (Continuous Integration/Continuous Delivery) such as version control and build automation. Such continuous processes will ensure a massive reduction in errors and outages.

Better Release Management: Database Devops enables better release management with improved staging environmentsthat closely resemble the production database. That is, get a good preview of how the database will appear after release when it is still in the staging environment. This will ensure that production deployments feature better quality, higher performance as well as scalability. Moreover, there will not be any unexpected outages.

More Efficient Processes and Workloads: There are several in-built software options in DevOps that can facilitateprocesses, which can support CI/CD pipelines, and improve visibility of changes. Integrating such tools into the database change process can help in automation of build, deploy and release stages, as well as speed up the database change process. The repetitive tasks handled on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis can be reduced.

Increased Security: DevOps enables continuous monitoring of security credentials which in-turn provides in-depth defense against external attackers and a defense against internal attackers. Utilizing the tools available in DevOps for automating the process will improve the ability to detect credential issues as well as weak spots in logging-in which can be exploited by malicious individuals; both inside and outside an organization.

These are the core advantages of integrating DevOps into your firm’s database management and database maintenance processes.
