Why DevOps?

hero background

In a world where software is becoming increasingly important, the success of a business depends more and more on how quickly software can be developed and deployed.

For us, DevOps consists of tools, processes, and people.

What is DevOps?

Software development and IT operations are often in a dilemma because they pursue different goals and work in opposite directions. DevOps, the combination of software developers (Dev) and operations (Ops), solves this problem by improving the entire software development process.

DevOps should enable a more effective and efficient collaboration through common incentives, processes, and tools. However, DevOps cannot simply be purchased but must be lived by the whole team and the whole company.

VSHN helps you to improve the quality of your software through DevOps and at the same time increase the speed of development and delivery and strengthen the cooperation of the teams involved.

What are the advantages of DevOps?

Some strong points for the DevOps philosophy:

  • Simplify, accelerate and improve Cloud Development
  • Automate software deployment to deliver continuous value to customers
  • Increase reliability, flexibility, and repeatability
  • Containers simplify the hosting of applications in portable environments
  • Cost savings through automation
  • DevOps brings people, processes, and technologies together
  • DevOps improves collaboration and increases motivation
  • DevOps enables collaboration between all parts of the IT organization and the “continuous delivery” of software.
  • Cloud, Container & DevOps make your business agile and future-proof

DevOps at VSHN

In the past, many servers were maintained by hand. Our specialty is the automation of this process to relieve the software developers and at the same time make the operation more stable and traceable. We have already designed several products from this.

DevOps consists of tools, processes, and people for collaboration. With our many years of experience, we help our customers to define the process and implement it using standard tools. We offer these standard tools as ready-made Managed Services, including consulting, implementation, and continuous improvement.
