With the move to virtualization and cloud-like IT architectures, we create and destroy computers instantly. The rate of architectural change is so fast, it must be automated to be workable. A new discipline -- dubbed DevOps -- is rising to the challenge. It's a cultural and technological shift in how IT systems are managed from creation to decommissioning. Because it gives development teams far greater control and involvement in operational functions, DevOps is tearing down the walls between development and operations, leading to a more collaborative, automated, agile approach to IT.
In this session, operations expert Jesse Robbins will look at how DevOps promises to change many operations fundamentals as we move to more agile IT atop elastic computing environments.
