In this tutorial, we will learn DevOps, DevApps and the Death of Infrastructure . As serverless grows, it’s not that infrastructure is dying; instead, it’s becoming more abstracted and out of sight.
In 1897, rumors swirled that the great American humorist, Samuel Clemens (a.k.a. Mark Twain) was ill. Eventually, rumors turned to belief that he had passed away. The English correspondent for the New York Journal, Frank Marshall, inquired of Twain whether this was true. Twain famously responded:
“I can understand perfectly how the report of my illness got about, I have even heard on good authority that I was dead. James Ross Clemens, a cousin of mine, was seriously ill two or three weeks ago in London, but is well now. The report of my illness grew out of his illness.
The report of my death was an exaggeration.”
My claim that infrastructure is dead may be deliberately cheeky, but it’s not too much of an exaggeration. Just as Clemens’ disappearance from view allowed the rumor to spread, we can now say the same about infrastructure. As we continue to move toward a services-based IT economy, we trade in self-administered servers for services, and delegate the administration of infrastructure to cloud providers.
As serverless grows, it’s not that infrastructure is dying; instead, it’s becoming more abstracted and out of sight. In fact, there is more infrastructure in use than ever, but the administration of those servers, routers and storages are being delegated to a smaller group of skilled administrators — helped by improved tools and automation.
DevOps and Cloud computing are joined at the hip, now that fact is well appreciated by the organizations that engaged in SaaS cloud and developed applications in the Cloud. During the COVID crisis period, most of the organizations have started using cloud computing services and implementing a cloud-first strategy to establish their remote operations. Similarly, the extended DevOps strategy will make the development process more agile with automated test cases.

The year 2020 has arrived, and its arrival brings a lot of innovations and transformations in the Information and Technology (IT) sector to DevOps technologies.
DevOps is supposed to help streamline the process of taking code changes and getting them to production for users to enjoy. But what exactly does it mean for the process to be "streamlined"? One way to answer this is to start measuring metrics.
