About Talk

  • IT Infrastructure Evolution with Agile Business requirements
  • Cloud-Automation-Orchestration is solving the Agile Infrastructure Puzzle in DevOps
  • Enterprise IT started with Monolithic Applications running on Mainframes
  • Distributed Client-Server Computing evolved with Unix Physical Server based Interdependant Monolithic Application Clusters in a Network
  • Virtualization Technology helped in consolidating underutilized Physical Servers into Virtual Machines on single powerfull Physical Server Hardware
  • Rise of Virtual Machines resource requirements led to Software Defined Networking (SDN) and Software Defined Storage (SDS)
  • Businesses became more competitive and wanted faster deployment of new features which resulted in Agile
  • Agile and DevOps demanded faster provisioning and de-provisioning of IT Infrastructure for sprints due to short development,test,deployment cycles
  • Automation was critical for faster turn around time to support Agile and DevOps as manual effort had human error
  • Cloud started moving initially Dev/Test/PreProd and later on Production Virtual Machines out of On Premise Data Centers to Hosted-Colocated and Public Cloud DC converting CapEx to OpEx
  • Modern Micro Services Architecture based Applications started leveraging Container Technology which was lighter and faster than Virtual Machines
  • Function As A Service (FAAS) is the next level of granularity beyond Containers and is called NoOps
  • Infrastructure As Code (IAC) is being version controlled along with Application Code making releases faster and better
  • Application-Infrastructure Agility is critical to Agile-DevOps success
