Since beginning our DevOps blog in November, and participating in webinars and conferences, we have received many questions that span the various facets of DevOps, including change management, security, and methodologies. This post will address some of the most frequently asked questions.
In late 2014, the SEI blog introduced a biweekly series of blog posts offering guidelines, practical advice, and tutorials for organizations seeking to adopt DevOps. These posts are aimed at the ever-increasing number of organizations adopting DevOps (up 26 percent since 2011). According to recent research, those organizations ship code 30 times faster. Despite the obvious benefits of DevOps, many organizations hesitate to embrace DevOps, which requires a shifting mindset and cultural and technical requirements that prove challenging in siloed organizations. Given these barriers, posts by CERT researchers have focused on case studies of successful DevOps implementations at Amazon and Netflix, as well as tutorials on popular DevOps technologies such as Fabric, Ansible, and Docker. This post presents the 10 most popular DevOps posts (based on number of visits) over the last six months.
