Why ?

  • Easy to detect issue with smaller changes
  • small releases instead of big releases
  • continuous testing

Continuous Delivery and Continuous Deployment

  • re-usability
  • scalability
  • self-documenting
  • simplify complex infrastructure

Configuration Management

  • automated infrastructure management
  • maintainable way

Why ?

  • Save time
  • Insight
  • maintainability
  • less configuration drifts


  • orchestrate build and automate

Why ?

  • Scalability
  • Stability
  • Save Time
  • Self-service


  • Collect data like usage of CPU< memory, disk i/o etc

Why ?

  • Fast Recovery
  • Better root cause analysis
  • Visibility across teams
