HA websites are where the rubber meets the road - at 200km/h. Traditional separation of dev and ops just doesn't cut it.
Everything is related to everything. Code relies on performant and resilient infrastructure, but highly performant infrastructure will only get a poorly written application so far. Worse still, root cause analysis in HA sites will more often than not identify problems that don't clearly belong to either devs or ops.
The two options are collaborate or die.
This talk will introduce 3 core principles for improving collaboration between operations and development teams: consistency, repeatability, and visibility. These principles will be investigated with real world case studies and associated technologies audience members can start using now. In particular, there will be a focus on:
- fast provisioning of test environments with configuration management
- reliable and repeatable automated deployments
- application and infrastructure visibility with statistics collection, logging, and visualisation
