We’ve compiled the ultimate list of DevOps automation tools
Docker is a suite of DevOps tools that creates containerized environments for apps, making them more portable, secure, and reducing conflicts while testing. Docker enables DevOps to build and run applications quickly and efficiently. Apps within Docker are OS- and platform-independent.
Kubernetes is a container orchestration platform, and it’s widely popular amongst DevOps teams. It manages containers at a large scale, and works well with Docker. Kubernetes automates the management of hundreds of containers, and can be used to deploy containerized apps to a cluster rather than individual machines by automating the distribution and scheduling across a cluster.
Raygun is an APM (application performance monitoring) tool, and it’s top of the class, providing excellent monitoring and crash reporting. Raygun helps DevOps to identify performance issues by linking back to the problematic line of the function, API call, or source code.
Splunk allows you to search, analyze, and visualize machine-generated data or logs in real time, and to analyze the machine state and identify hardware failure points. By pushing the machine data to Splunk, the tool processes all available data for you, then extracts relevant data, helping you identify specific causes and locations of problems.
Git is one of the most widely used DevOps tools in the software industry world, and is particularly popular amongst remote teams and contributors. Through its distributed SCM (source code management) model, developers can track the progress of dev work and maintain different versions of the source code. It uses host repositories where contributors push their work.
Ansible is an agent-less configuration management tool that is easy to deploy and offers continuous delivery. It automates many repetitive tasks, such as cloud provisioning, application deployment, and intra-service orchestration. Use Ansible to connect nodes and push modules to them from a centralized place. It will then execute the modules and automatically remove them when the action is complete.
