What tasks do DevOps have?
DevOps (or systems engineers) embrace a unique combination of skills that significantly speeds up software development processes, guarantees the stability, availability of the finished product (predominantly in the cloud) and prompt updates. The role of DevOps specialists depends on the project's specifics and often includes:
- Provisioning and administration of cloud infrastructure, including ensuring the required performance, availability, security and scalability
- Configuration and management of continuous integration and continuous delivery tools and pipelines (CI/CD), which automate the process of software delivery from development to operations
- Writing scripts for CI/CD processes automation
Systems engineers strive to find common ground with the team and to communicate with the client's representatives. Overall, this job strikes the right balance between communications and technical tasks.
