2019 DevOps and Automation Predictions
We recently released our 2019 predictions for cloud computing and are doing the same here for DevOps and automation predictions.
2018 was a great year for software, and DevOps falls somewhere on the slope of enlightenment on the Gartner Hype Cycle, gaining traction in the industry and continuing to demonstrate itself as the best methodology to build, deploy, and operate software. To date, one of the most important books published on DevOps, which I’ve cited numerous times is Accelerate: The Science of Lean Software and DevOps. This publication asserts through data that DevOps practices create high performers. Together with the DevOps Handbook, both publications provide a window into what to expect in 2019. In a nutshell, there’s no surprise that the industry will continue to adopt DevOps and automate more of their procedures to remove toil and increase efficiency, but there are also new opportunities to see DevOps applied in surprising new contexts. Before we dive into the predictions, if you’re looking to start your DevOps training, have a look at all of the content offered by Cloud Academy in its DevOps training library. I also advise you to check out the DevOps Playbook – CI/CD Tools and Services Learning Path.
Prediction #1: Kubernetes will grow substantially in 2019
We’ll start with a safe prediction. The IT industry has converged on Kubernetes as the leading technology for container orchestration. Kubernetes has gained widespread adoption, and is now more accessible with cloud providers such as AWS, Google, and Microsoft offering Kubernetes-as-a-Service products. This means that the industry has standardized on an open source stack. However, it’s more accurate to say the stack is a Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF) project. CNCF provides stewardship, fostering the continued growth and evolution of Kubernetes, together with many other cloud-related projects. This is not a bad thing but
