Adopt DevOps philosophy on your Symfony projects (Symfony Live 2011)

  1. 1. Adopt Devops philosophy on your Symfony projects An introduction to Devops by Fabrice Bernhard
  2. 2. Me Fabrice Bernhard
  3. 3. @theodo fabriceb@theodo.fr
  4. 4. Co-founder / CTO of Theodo and Allomatch.com
  5. 5. Theodo creates web-based applications with open-source web technologies, agile methodologies and the highest standards of quality to guarantee rapid application development, risk-free deployment and easy maintenance for every client.
  6. 6. @skoop: Now, let's look for a bar in Paris where I could watch the FC Utrecht match :)
  7. 7. Allomatch.com is the website for watching sports in bars in France and Spain (sportandbar.es) Allomatch is used by 500 barmen (clients) and visited by more than 200,000 unique visitors per month Peaks on the biggest days can go up to 20,000 people in the 2 hours preceding the game Allomatch.com is hosted on a cluster of 6 servers
  8. 8. What is DevOps? Introduction
  9. 9. How many here consider themselves SysAdmins?
  10. 10. How many here have never deployed an application on a server?
  11. 11. Wikipedia Definition of DevOps DevOps is a set of processes, methods and systems for communication, collaboration and integration between departments for Development (Applications/Software Engineering), Technology Operations and Quality Assurance (QA). It relates to the emerging understanding of the interdependence of development and operations in meeting a business' goal to producing timely software products and services
  12. 12. The fundamental DevOps contradiction Devs VS Ops Developers are asked to deliver new value, often and fast Operations people are asked to protect the current value Pro-Change VS Pro-Stability
  13. 13. Silos
  14. 14. Break the silos
  15. 15. DevOps do RADD
  16. 16. DevOps create the infrastructure that empower devs from the first line of code to the delivery How to be DevOps? Configuration management for rapid, repeatable server setup Deployment scripts to abstract sysadmin tasks and empower developers Development VMs with prod configuration to ensure consistency and avoid unexpected system-related bugs Continuous deployment to make it fast!
  17. 17. DevOps is spreading agility to the whole IT project lifecycle
  18. 18. Rapid and repeatable server setup Configuration management with Puppet
  19. 19. What is configuration management? Writing the system configuration of your servers in files Applying these files automatically That's it!
  20. 20. Why do configuration management? To do fast cluster deployment: who wants to manually setup 50 EC2 servers??? To do fast crash-recovery: configuration management is the best documentation for a server's setup To have consistent environments for development and production
  21. 21. Puppet or Chef Configuration management tools Two popular recent tools for configuration management: Puppet and Chef A master server contains different "recipes" describing system configurations Client servers connect to the master server, read their recipe, and apply the configuration
  22. 22. Puppet
  23. 23. Puppet references
  24. 24. Let us create a Symfony-ready server with Puppet Introduction to Puppet manifests
  25. 25. class lighttpd { package { "apache2.2-bin": ensure => absent, } package { "lighttpd": ensure => present, } service { "lighttpd": ensure => running, require => Package["lighttpd", "apache2.2-bin"], } }
  26. 26. class lighttpd-phpmysql-fastcgi inherits lighttpd { package { "php5-cgi": ensure => present, } package { "mysql-server": ensure => present, } exec { "lighttpd-enable-mod fastcgi": path => "/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin", creates => "/etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/10-fastcgi.conf", require => Package["php5-cgi", "lighttpd"], } }
  27. 27. class symfony-server inherits lighttpd-phpmysql-fastcgi { package { ["php5-cli", "php5-sqlite"]: ensure => present, notify => Service["lighttpd"], } package { "git-core": ensure => present, } exec { "git clone git://github.com/symfony/symfony1.git": path => "/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin", cwd => "/var/www", creates => "/var/www/symfony1", require => Package["lighttpd", "git-core"], } }
  28. 28. class symfony-live-server inherits symfony-server { file { "/etc/lighttpd/conf-available/99-hosts.conf": source => "/vagrant/files/conf/hosts.conf", notify => Service["lighttpd"], } exec { "lighttpd-enable-mod hosts": path => "/usr/bin:/usr/sbin:/bin", creates => "/etc/lighttpd/conf-enabled/99-hosts.conf", require => File["/etc/lighttpd/conf-available/99-hosts.conf"], notify => Service["lighttpd"], } } include symfony-live-server notice("Symfony server is going live!")
  29. 29. Why not use shell scripts? Shell scripts are for administrators. Is all your team composed of admin experts? Even for admin experts, Puppet and Chef recipes are more readable Puppet and Chef make inheritance and modules easy Puppet and Chef are idempotent: running them twice in a row will not break your system
  30. 30. Develop and test on the same environment as in production! VM provisioning with Vagrant
  31. 31. Develop on local Virtual Machines Vagrant Vagrant is a tool to create local VirtualBox VMs, configured automatically by your Chef recipe or Puppet manifest It ensures you test on the same environment as your production server It is VERY easy
  32. 32. All you need is: Vagrant A Puppet manifest A few system config files A Vagrant conf file
  33. 33. Demonstration Vagrant $ git clone git://github.com/fabriceb/sflive2011vm.git . $ git clone git://github.com/fabriceb/sflive2011.git $ vagrant up http://127.0.0.1:2011/
  34. 34. Give developers the power to deploy themselves Scripted deployment
  35. 35. Deployment Deployment is a very critical task usually done by admins Remember Murphy's law: "If anything can go wrong, it will" W hen things go wrong, most of the time developers have the solution So give the developers the responsibility to deploy, rollback, correct and deploy again!
  36. 36. Scripting deployment can be VERY easy Simple Fabric script example # fabfile.py from fabric.api import * env.hosts = ['theodo@myserver.com'] def deploy(): with cd('/theodo/sflive2011'): run('git pull') run('./symfony doc:build --all --no-confirmation') run('./symfony cc') $ fab deploy
  37. 37. A good practise: scripting a rollback Another Fabric example # fabfile.py def deploy(): tag = "prod/%s" % strftime("%Y/%m-%d-%H-%M-%S") local('git tag -a %s -m "Prod"' % tag) local('git push --tags') with cd(path): run('git fetch') tag = run('git tag -l prod/* | sort | tail -n1') run('git checkout ' + tag) def rollback(num_revs=1): with cd(path): run('git fetch') tag = run('git tag -l prod/* | sort | tail -n' + str(1 + int(num_revs)) + ' | head -n1') run('git checkout ' + tag)
  38. 38. And why not let Jenkins deploy himself? Continuous deployment
  39. 39. The Holy Grail of Rapid App Development & Deployment: Automate everything low value-added and relax
  40. 40. Isn't it dangerous to trust a machine? Errare humanum est Of course you need continuous integration with MANY tests Of course you need some serious monitoring on the production server Of course you need some good rollback scripts But aren't that good things to do anyway ? Good continuous integration is more reliable than a human!
  41. 41. You need to separate dev, pre-prod and prod... Continuous deployment howto For example with git: features/* branches for small projects dev branch for merging team development master branch for production-ready code prod/* tags for production
  42. 42. And you need a deployment script + Jenkins Continuous deployment howto Deployment script using Fabric (for example) Jenkins (formerly known as Hudson) to test and deploy
  43. 43. Create a new Jenkins project testing only branch master
  44. 44. Specify "Build other projects" in the post-build actions
  45. 45. Don't forget to activate Chuck Norris
  46. 46. Create a second Jenkins project to execute the deploy script
  47. 47. That's it!

  51. 51. Many thanks to Samuel @smaftoul Maftoul, organiser of the Paris DevOps meetup, who bootstrapped me on DevOps!
