Best practices in implementing continuous delivery for enterprise systems such as big data, Hadoop, Spark, Scala, ETL, analytics, and data visualization
- Design a DevOps strategy for your organization
- Get to grips with DevOps practices
- Implement best practices for improving efficiency and security
Hands-On DevOps for Architects focuses on establishing DevOps best practices to enable enterprise architecture for systems such as financial services, e-commerce, big data, Hadoop, Spark, Scala, ETL, analytics, and data visualization, which are then implemented on cloud, on-prem, and on hybrid cloud.
With the help of this book, you’ll learn how to lead DevOps transformation through effective enterprise architecture including implementation of continuous delivery pipeline, infrastructure as code (IaC), configuration management, and Site Reliability Engineering (SRE). Once you have grasped the basics, you’ll learn how to implement effective practices, such as continuous integration, delivery, and deployment, as part of creating the continuous delivery pipeline. In addition to this, the book has a detailed section guiding you through implementation of cloud-based deployment and Docker containers with Kubernetes.
By the end of this book, you’ll not only have employed effective build engineering and continuous quality assurance but you’ll also understand best practices for ensuring that security is built from scratch.
