DevOps Outsourcing

Accelerate your software application deployment and security

What is DevOps Outsourcing?

DevOps Outsourcing offers a convenient approach to enable DevOps into a software development project, without the need to recruit a permanent DevOps engineer.

Modern software applications run on scalable cloud infrastructure. The most popular public clouds are Amazon Web Services, Google Cloud and Azure. These public clouds offer Infrastructure as code, giving the ability for developers to define infrastructure programmatically to host applications. DevOps engineers are vert knowledgable with cloud services and automated deployments. Their mission is to define, manage and maintain application infrastructure while automating deployment, monitoring, alerting and event handling.

Often, our DevOps engineers are very valuable in any software development project. They contribute to automate a number of items from the Continuous Integration / Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) setup and the management of development, testing and production environments. DevOps also enable more advanced security feature by default in all environments.

In short, DevOps Outsourcing allows to accelerate software development by bringing offshore DevOps engineers into the projet.

What makes a good DevOps engineer?

Good DevOps engineers usually have the following core skills :

  • Strong hands-on linux expertise on major distributions (RedHat, Suze, etc)
  • Mastery of at least one scripting language, such as Bash, Perl or Python
  • Great operational knowledge of networking and network configurations
  • Ability to setup and configure firewalls, DNS, NFS, SFTP and other services
  • Certification with at least one major public cloud
  • Knowledge of at least one major deployment framework (Chef, Puppet, etc)
  • Knowledge of one infrastructure as code framework (CloudFormation, TerraForm, etc)

Usually, DevOps are very complete, well rounded system engineers with a variety of hands-on skills. Therefore, a good DevOps engineer typically commands a higher compensation compared to a traditional systems administrator. When an engineer has been certified on a public cloud platform, the compensation is generally higher as well. The increase of the DevOps Outsourcing demand has fueled the transition of traditional system administrators to DevOps engineers.
