GitOps… The Next DevOps?

And Things Keep Getting More Exciting

GitOps is a new way of managing and deploying software with a set of practices that help you deploy software more reliably. It involves Git to store all your manifest files and Kubernetes to deploy the application. Is it time to look beyond DevOps to deploy applications in a predictable manner?  Here are some of the benefits GitOps can deliver:

  • Increased developer productivity
  • Ability to track changes through time
  • Everything in a declarative approach
  • Easy infrastructure management
  • Automation and orchestration
  • Better Continuous Delivery
  • Better security with security-as-code strategy
  • Reduced downtime

Here is our monthly curated list of thought-provoking articles and blog posts around GitOps.
