Geek Sync Webcast : Is Your Database Environment Ready for DevOps?
Modern software development teams have adopted a continuous delivery approach based upon DevOps and agile development techniques. The small and frequent code changes that result from such an approach can deliver significant benefit in terms of reduced lead time for changes, a lower failure rate, and a reduced mean time to recovery when errors are encountered. So it is no wonder that the DevOps approach is rapidly becoming the de facto standard for application development and deployment.
But until recently, not enough focus has been placed on integrating database development and management into DevOps practices and procedures. Most of the automation and tooling focuses on coding, development, and deployment rather than on the design and administrative requirements of database systems. Failing to include proper database implementation best practices into DevOps will result in problems down-the-line, including poor performance, data integrity issues, difficult to maintain systems, and other problems.
This webinar will examine the core database administration practices that need to be integrated into your DevOps pipeline to achieve success. We will discuss critical tactics that need to be included in your database DevOps approach, and take a look at different ways to successfully integrate database administration into DevOps, without negating the advantages and benefits of DevOps.
