In the following article, we’ll explain why using AWS for DevOps makes sense for most businesses. We’ll also explain how CloudRanger can further simplify the experience of using AWS for DevOps.

At its core, Devops is a software development process that emphasises tight collaboration between product managers, developers, and operations professionals. This strong emphasis on collaboration is intended to better monitor a product’s development and hasten its release. In addition, the DevOps process also relies heavily on automation to further streamline software development and favours Continuous Integration (CI) or Continuous Delivery (CD), which is the frequent deployment of small-scale software updates as opposed to the staggered release of massive overhauls.

Amazon Web Services (AWS) is uniquely situated to meet all of these criteria and more.
