Three-phase DevOps Pipeline

Building a continuous integration, continuous delivery pipeline

The DevOps team takes care of all the aspects of SDLC right from planning to deployment and maintenance. CI enables the team to detect and fix bugs early in the development cycle while CD helps deliver frequently and get feedback from end-users quicker. The goal is to create a fully automated deployment pipeline that is capable of making deployment to any environment within minutes.

A process for continuous development!
  • Repository triggers a process on a build server when code changes are committed 
  • Code is compiled into deployable packages for deployment to customers 

  • To ensure code quality, automated tests are performed on these packages

  • The application is deployed to a test environment for the QA team to inspect in case of a successful commit stage 

  • Upon approval of the application, the release can be pushed straight to production.

Creating a Continuous Testing Environment

Continuous testing is an integral part of DevOps with a primary focus on testing early and testing often. It ensures testing (manual and automated) is performed continually throughout the delivery pipeline. The tests include static code analysis, unit tests, integration, functional, UI and performance test. Regression tests are conducted to ensure comprehensive test coverage. In the deployment pipeline, every change is treated as a potential  release candidate. The main goal is to keep the lead time between check-in and release as short as possible.

A Process For Continuous Testing

  • Adopt test automation to the greatest possible extent including testing procedures and phases excluding areas like usability testing and exploratory testing where manual testing is required

  • Incorporate sufficient QA practices

  • Test early and test often 

  • Use quantifiable metrics to track the success/failure rate of your testing efforts 

  • Leverage containerization and use proper tools to make the testing process easier

Establishing a continuous deployment system

Taking continuous development one step ahead, continuous deployment aims at minimizing the lead time. With this practice, every change that successfully passes all stages of the production pipeline gets automatically deployed without human intervention. It helps accelerate the feedback loop enabling organizations to quickly deliver new features and updates in tandem with changing customer needs. Leveraging a well-designed delivery pipeline and early feedback, helps developers focus on developing features useful to end-users, saving time and effort.

Continuous Performance Monitoring

Continuous performance monitoring is vital to measure the  success of your DevOps initiatives. Before you choose the right tools, it is important to identify the key metrics worthy of your attention. Let’s take a  look at 5 important metrics you should be tracking throughout the entire lifetime of your DevOps operations:

  • Deployment Frequency And Lead Time 

  • Application Performance & Automated Tests Failure Rate

  • Server Health
