News For most companies, development and operation teams play a game of volleyball passing blame on each other when service/product has issues. Lack of communication and understanding between the two, causes costly and timely problems for every company. DevOps is not a title, nor is a position. DevOps is culture represented by a white flag waved from both directions. Cooperation and Communication are at the heart of DevOps. It tears down the wall and pride of these two very valuable entities inside a company and unleashes the power of teamwork towards a common goal!

What's your failover plan. In today's world downtime equates lost money for most companies. High availability & up time is so crucial, that most are willing to spend the money and mirror their primary environment. We are all familiar with the infamous banner: "The website is down for routine maintenance". It's as annoying as counterproductive. In a DevOps environment, software engineers create processes such as deployment plans (we'll discuss this further another time) that will complement the infrastructure set up by a system engineer. Together, they can ensure the service they provide is always uninterrupted. Below is a simple redundancy schema between two servers in the same Datacenter. You can scale this out and be able to implement it across multiple Datacenteres.

Have a plan!
