Established in 2010, Easy Cloud began with the goal of helping small to medium businesses migrate to Google Workspace (formerly Google Apps) for email and operations, WordPress for websites, and Untangle for security.
In more recent years, we have evolved and entered the DevOps space by utilizing emerging cloud technologies such as Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure and Google Cloud.
What Is DevOps?
DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications quickly and efficiently.
Under a DevOps model, development and operations teams are no longer working independently in separate departments. Sometimes, these two teams are merged into a single team where the engineers work across the entire application lifecycle, from development and test to deployment to operations, and develop a range of skills not limited to a single function. These teams use practices to automate processes that historically have been manual and slow. They use a technology stack and tooling which help them operate and evolve applications quickly and reliably.
Automate and Treat Everything as Code
Automation of the build, test, and deployment processes—plus treating infrastructure (and ideally security) as code—are key attributes of DevOps. It all starts with Agile development and CI/CD, with processes and tools that allow for faster, continuous, and more effective development and testing. Potential problems are identified and resolved quickly, resulting in well-tested, higher-quality applications and features that are delivered to constituents faster.
