DevOps: What are the Differences between containers and VMs ?

What are the Differences between containers and VMs ?

During Deployment activity phase the environment building is part of the DevOps practices.

In traditional method we used to spend lot of time for this task. But when it came with VMs and containers, it is easy and in minutes the environments can be prepared using the IAC.

The containers became very popular for building the test environments. Let us say you want to build a MYSQL server, the solutions is; simply try to understand its environment and pull one Docker image which has the MYSQL. Then use it in that network environment.

When we talk about the VMs and Containers one need to understand their differences. I have made a video for learners:

If you are a Docker learner, then try to build the MYSQL container from the below specifications:

DevOps: Advanced DevOps Practices/Processes-2 [DevSecOps]

In continuation of my previous blog on; DevOps:Advanced DevOps Practices/Processes-1:
Following are the some of the DevOps concepts, a Practitioner need to practice.

What is the goal of DevSecOps?

The goal of DevSecOps is to decrease time to market while cutting the costs of development and remediation, while improving overall application security.

How it can be performed ?:

If the appropriate, automated security vulnerability and configuration scanning tools are deployed, developers with varying skill sets and experience can find and fix security problems as they occur.

How to motivate developers?:

Teaching developers on secure coding practices is still essential,  as it is monitoring and protecting the production environment.

How to achieve it?:

By integrating automated application security testing as part of the moving into DevSecOps practices, teams can complete a DevOps security checking that addresses the challenges associated with developing secure applications in agile environments.

How to apply checkpoints?:

There are tools to verify the above checks.

I have discussed some of the relevant points on this subject in the below video session:

DevOps: What is the feedback analysis?

What is the feedback analysis? When it can be done?

As per the agile principles the stakeholder collaboration is an ongoing activity. At any time the stakeholder can give informal or formal feedback for any software items or in any approach followed by agile teams.

In agile model many times informal feedback can happen during the discussion. At the same time the scheduled reviews also can happen. During the review the feedback can be given by the reviewers.

Even a test result can come into a feedback category. All these feedback items need to be analyzed for delivering a working software by the teams as per the principles. 

Sometimes the feedback analysis outcome can come into process improvements areas for the next iteration and these should be considered for Retrospective items.

Hence the feedback analysis is a mandated activity at every task completion stage in  Agile project.

AWS-SAA-coaching for Test Analysts

In the below video I have explained on the activities and tasks of DevOps roles. I have explained in it why that task should be done by that role. How the Developers, Test engineers, DevOps Engineers, Users and Ops Engineers are connected to work together as a team, as per Agile manifesto. One can get clear idea on DevOps implementation. To automate these tasks DevOps tools are very much required. Hence now the DevOps market is running behind the tools.

Below image can denote the transition of IT development cycles till DevOps practice with continuous operation [automated]:
