Using RedHat's Ansible for provisioning cloud infrastructure

Preparing your applications for the cloud

Cloud readiness is important when deciding to migrate. Getting your applications ready to run on a Platform-as-a-Service like RedHat's OpenShift or Cloud Foundry, or on compute services takes some experience. We can help get your applications 12 factor ready.

More than simply combining two roles within a team, DevOps means changing the way your entire team thinks about how they deliver software.

DevOps isn't a job title, it's a mentality designed to improve software delivery by breaking down silos in development and operations teams. Combining these responsibilities means your team shares an understanding of your application at each point of its lifetime, allowing for faster deployments, increased efficiency, and more time to focus on organisational goals.

Culture

As with all good software delivery practices, DevOps places an emphasis on strong communication between every member of a software application's team. This helps to create a culture that sees traditionally siloed roles as an impediment to better delivery, and encourages thinking critically about ways to further improve current processes.

Knowledge Sharing

The combination of these responsibilities allows developers to easily share knowledge around each stage of development and delivery, and reduces the operational bottlenecks often associated with siloed roles.

Cloud Automation

Throughout the delivery process, from provisioning infrastructure to deploying your application, there are many manual processes that can be automated with tools like Chef, Puppet and Terraform. Automating these repetitive tasks allows you to easily reproduce your infrastructure on demand, and also reduces the risk of human error.
