As defined by Amazon Web Services, DevOps is the integration of cultural concepts, practices, methods, and tools which allow an organization to provide services and applications at high speed: advancing and improving their products at a much faster rate than those using traditional software process for infrastructure management and development. This allows organizations to serve clients more effectively and compete in the market.
The benefits include:
- Speedier delivery of your project to users and better control over the environment.
- Fewer failures of applications seamlessly deployed across multiple servers.
- Many better sugary goodies that businesses love to hear about.
- And it also helps to cut costs.
How to Reduce Costs with DevOps – 7 Proven Methods
1. Take a step towards the cloud
This is simple. However, it is often overlooked by many companies. Transferring your infrastructure to the cloud doesn’t only reduce the costs of development and maintenance (granted that you’ll pay per month; however, it’s significantly less than the expenses for building and maintaining your infrastructure) however, it also frees time for your staff to concentrate on efficient automation strategies to reduce your expenses further.
2. Plan profoundly
Each application requires its own infrastructure and has its requirements. We have observed that when companies decide to put their infrastructure to the cloud or move between cloud providers, their inexperience will increase costs over the long term. This is because they fail to evaluate their plans correctly, either fail to buy resources or services or purchase more than they need.
