Staying late… browsing and learning… found a gem.
Since one of AppLogic’s traditional audiences is DevOps, some frequently ask us “what is DevOps”. While the following doesn’t really provide a definition, it tells us how to do it (and for a definition, there’s always Wikipedia)
In summary, here’s how Flickr does it:
- Automated Infrastructure
- Shared version control
- One step build – code to set of files in one step
- One step deploy
- Shared metrics
- Use IRC and IM Robots
- Shared Run-books and Escalation plans
- Healthy attitude about failure – plan to respond, not just prevent. Fire drills.
- No finger-pointing and blame
