Scaling DevOps Episode 1: Challenges of Scaling DevOps

It can be easy to do cutting edge DevOps for small teams working on small-scale projects. However, different problems start to emerge when scaling DevOps processes and operations to multiple (sometimes distributed) teams, complex deployments, multiple technologies (Kubernetes, instances, and serverless functions), and critical production systems with millions of users being affected by each change.

In this webinar series, we will reveal and provide solutions to the challenges of scaling DevOps including:

- Scaling Continuous Integration environments
- Automating complex environments
- Establishing processes for increased productivity
- Standardizing environments from development to production
- Managing governance and policies
- Deploying to production

In this first introductory episode, we'll lay the groundwork for the series and discuss some common challenges we've seen first hand at numerous organizations trying to scale their DevOps. Some of these challenges are technical in nature whereas others have to do with culture and processes and the need to balance the need of multiple stakeholders involved in the DevOps process. Why are DevOps engineers frustrated and what is always but always easy to scale?

  • The Secret Weapon of QA Modernization Jun 23 2020 7:15 pm UTC 59 mins
    Maya Ber Lerner, CTO, Quali; Leandro Mendez, Performance Test Lead, Qualitest
    The world depends on software more than ever, increasing the risk presented by low software quality. QA teams are required to adopt modern approaches to quality in order to keep up.

    In recent months, the rising need for remote testing exposed weak links in many businesses’ QA processes. But it also presents an opportunity to tackle old QA patterns that hinder efficiency.

    In this webinar, Qualitest's Performance Test Lead, Leandro Melendez, and Quali's CTO, Maya Ber Lerner, will discuss how environment automation can change the way teams approach quality and be the basis of a successful QA strategy.

  • Why Your Test Automation is Failing and How to Achieve True Continuous Testing Recorded: May 12 2020 23 mins
    Maya Ber Lerner, CTO, Quali
    Only a few years ago, test automation was a "geeky nice to have," but it is now recognized as essential for continuous software delivery, according to Maya Ber Lerner, CIO at Quali, the test-environment-service provider. At the QA Financial Forum London on March 12th, Ber Lerner was presenting remotely from New York, explaining how financial firms can overcome the single major barrier that keeps them from optimizing the ROI from automation technologies: the lack of trust they have in their test environments.

    Provisioning test environments is a time-consuming, complex and mostly manual process that takes the automation out of test automation, and often results in mis-configuration and incorrect data sets. To achieve continuous testing and successful automation at scale, Ber Lerner explains in the presentation how QA teams can access automated production-like environments they can trust and achieve true continuous testing across value stream.

  • Scaling DevOps episode 7: Scaling Production Deployments Recorded: Sep 19 2019 18 mins
    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation & Edan Evantal, VP R&D
    "Production" is a loaded term for many organizations. Pushing new code to production can be a nerve-wracking ritual dreaded by many developers and ops engineers. So how to scale environment deployment and transition to continuous delivery without increasing the likelihood of production meltdown?

    In this episode, we discuss why production should not be treated differently from any other testing or development environment and how blue/green deployments can be a key driver to delivering new features safely into the hands of users.
  • Scaling DevOps Episode 6: Scaling governance and policies Recorded: Sep 12 2019 18 mins
    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation & Joseph Zur, IT/Ops Manager
    DevOps is devouring big portions of the overall cloud cost. CFOs, IT and Ops managers are struggling to keep up and regulate spend and consumption without putting spokes in the wheels of the release process - slowing down releases or compromising quality. It often seems like Dev and Ops are speaking entirely different languages which can be a huge obstacle to coming to an agreement about what makes sense and what doesn't in using cloud resources. In this sixth episode of our series, we will talk with Joseph Zur, an IT manager accountable for cloud spend. We will talk about some of the challenges of correlating cloud cost to business impact as well as governing and setting policies to cloud usage.
  • Scaling DevOps Episode 5: Scaling standardization and expertise Recorded: Sep 5 2019 15 mins
    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation & Tomer Admon, Lead DevOps Engineer
    Not everyone can be cloud experts and yet we require cloud environments to be compliant, secure and adhere to design best practices. How can you ensure that your organization standardizes how cloud environments are being created by multiple teams while avoiding the DevOps team becoming a huge bottleneck?

    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation and Naama Gonczarowski, Product Expert
    The organizational structure and internal processes have a huge impact on your DevOps productivity. The "wall of confusion" between Dev and Ops can lead to multiple points of frictions which are further multiplied by other stakeholders involved in the DevOps processes. In this episode, we will discuss some of the challenges involved in making DevOps work efficiently when multiple teams and stakeholders are involved and discuss the age-old question - who holds the keys? (to the cloud)
  • Scaling DevOps Episode 3: Scaling Environment Complexity and Orchestration Recorded: Aug 22 2019 17 mins
    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation & Alex Azrah, Senior Engineer
    DevOps cloud environments are becoming more complex and heterogeneous in the technologies and infrastructure types they include. As environments are shifting left to provide early integration with production architectures, they can include a combination of VMs, Kubernetes instances, serverless functions, and PaaS services and also the orchestration to set everything up, import data and artifacts and glue everything together. In this episode, we will discuss the challenges of automation complex environments end-to-end and as always bring up some principles that can help us manage that complexity.
  • Scaling DevOps Episode 2: Scaling CI Environments Recorded: Aug 15 2019 16 mins
    Roni Dover, Director of Sales Innovation & Meni Besso, Product Manager
    It can be easy to do cutting edge DevOps for small teams working on small-scale projects. However, different problems start to emerge when scaling DevOps processes and operations to multiple (sometimes distributed) teams, complex deployments, multiple technologies (Kubernetes, instances, and serverless functions), and critical production systems with millions of users being affected by each change.

    In the second episode in the series, we will discuss the specific challenges DevOps engineers and developers face in scaling cloud environments for continuous integration and CI tools such as Jenkins or Teamcity. We will discuss how we view the 'shift left' movement and how it impacts the complexity of developing scalable end-to-end automation for your cloud environments.
