Top DevOps Tools You Should Know About in 2021

DevOps is an evolution from the agile model and is an enterprise software development approach aimed at enabling collaboration between Development and IT Operations.

This is an effective collaboration of people, process and working product that enables continuous integration (CI) and continuous delivery (CD) of value to end users.

Following are the top DevOps tools:

1.Kubernetes: It is founded by Google and is a container orchestration platform. Large-scale containers are dealt with the open-source system and thus tries to take the containerization process to the next level.

Containerized apps are segregated into logical units for the purpose of scaling, simple discovery and management and automating deployment.

2.Git: It is considered to be one of the most widely used DevOps tools. Remote teams and open-source contributors can greatly benefit from this tool.

It is a distributed SCM (Source Code Management) tool where the advancement of your app development is tracked by developers for the purpose of maintaining various source code versions. If need be required, developers can return to the earlier versions.

3.Jenkins: It is an integration server tool. The core server is where the software is being deployed during the software development process.

DevOps teams can take the help of the Jenkins automation engine so that project changes can be integrated and accessed easily and thus the issues can be detected speedily.

4.Splunk: This DevOps tool provides exceptional analytical solutions to DevOps teams. Logs that are produced from different sources like applications, websites and devices can be compared by this tool.

It is considered a perfect platform to integrate with IoT (Internet of Things). Data can be easily accumulated, which will, in turn, provide in-depth insights to make meaningful business decisions.

5.Puppet: It is considered to be the best cross-platform configuration management tool. The deployment can be done faster and in a secure manner.

It is a DevOps program that can handle several servers with ease. A master-slave infrastructure is used by this tool. A number of teams andresources can be easily handled.

Issues can be managed easily and also different modules can be combined with other DevOps tools.Infrastructure management can be automated by this tool by the application of the whole infrastructure as a code.

DevOps has evolved as an extension of agile methodology and enables effective collaboration between developers and IT operation teams and breaks silos that existed in earlier models.

DevOps methodology has many benefits such as ensures team collaboration, speed of delivery, reliability, security ensured with effective test automation practices.
