  • 1. A 5-min Ignite talk about how DevOpsbeats Traditional IT Ops, every time.Oliver White (@theotown)Head of Rebel Labs, ZeroTurnaroundDevOps ProductivitySurvey 2013
  • 2. Reminder: Why we want DevOps● Traditionally siloed team structures don’t scale● Opposing philosophies (Devs <3 change, Ops <3stability)● Continuously evolving technologies & needs requiremore flexibilityHow do DevOps teams spend their time eachweek, compared to Traditional IT Ops teams?
  • 3. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:Overall work week
  • 4. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:Infrastructure improvementsWhat theyre doing: testing processes and recoveryplans and making sure these things workDevOps spends 33% more time improving infrastructureagainst failures.
  • 5. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:Handling SupportWhat theyre doing: Handling support cases foroperations infrastructure - i.e. when things go wrongTraditional IT Ops require nearly 60% more time per weekto handle support cases.
  • 6. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:FirefightingWhat theyre doing: dropping everything to recoverfrom failures or fix something urgently.DevOps spends about 21% less time putting out fires on aweekly basis.
  • 7. DevOps wins!● 21% less time putting out fires● 37% less time handling support cases.● With that extra time, DevOps spends 33%more time improving infrastructure, andthey even spend 15% more time on self-improvement (education, training).
  • 8. What about failures and recoveries?● Average team has 2 app failures permonth● Recovery time is >30min for over 50% ofall respondents.
  • 9. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:Recovery times
  • 10. DevOps vs. Traditional IT Ops:Recovery times● Traditional IT Ops teams are almost 2xmore likely to require 60+ minutes torecover● Recoveries in < 30min are 33% more likelyfor DevOps teams than traditional IT Ops
  • 11. Ok ok, so DevOps recover faster....But what about releasing software?Surely DevOps cant be THAT muchbetter?Wrong.
  • 12. Boom!DevOps teams need less than HALF THETIME to release an application version (36.3min vs. 85.1 min).
  • 13. Quick summary so far...● DevOps spends more time on improvingthings and less time fixing things● DevOps recovers from failures faster● DevOps releases apps more than twice asfastHmm, maybe its in the tools they are using?
  • 14. Top tools and technologies used byDevOps and IT Ops teams
  • 15. Lets ask the audience
  • 16. Popular infrastructure config tools
  • 17. Popular Test Automation tools
  • 18. Popular Monitoring tools
  • 19. DevOps clearly wins, but still isntperfect (hey!)● Most app failures still occur due to software qualityor lack of automation.● Most teams have < 10% of their infrastructureconfigured with code (i.e. using Puppet, Chef)● Most teams have < 10% of their smoke testsautomated● Most teams dont test their recovery processes
