The practice of DevOps helps in continuous innovation of ideas, enabling continuous delivery of those ideas, and providing meaningful feedback for continuous learning, so that the idea translated into code, operations and infrastructure can continually be refined.

AWS and DevOps

AWS provides a set of flexible services designed to enable companies to more rapidly and reliably build and deliver products using AWS and DevOps practices. These services simplify provisioning and managing infrastructure, deploying application code, automating software release processes, and monitoring your application and infrastructure performance.

The key to a successful DevOps practice within an organization is Automation, achieved through CI/CD or Continuous Integration / Continuous Delivery/Deployment.

Continuous integration is a DevOps practice where developers continuously commit their code changes into a source repository. Then, at regular intervals, the system will conduct an automated build, deploy, and test. Continuous delivery expands on continuous integration by automatically deploying code changes through the support environments, pausing for approval before going to production. Continuous deployment does not wait for approval; rather, it goes to production automatically after successfully passing through automated testing in the support environments.
