How is DevOps doing? To borrow a phrase from American politics, the state of DevOps in 2014 is strong, according to an annual worldwide study released last week.

“We can now assert with confidence that high IT performance correlates with strong business performance, helping to boost productivity, profitability and market share,” the report says.

“An enterprise moving towards DevOps practices often has real problems operating in a “traditional” controls environment,” Gallimore told me. “Basically, it’s a very frustrating, painful — and potentially costly — experience if they can’t bridge the gap between what they’re doing (and why) and what will satisfy the auditors.”

The goals of a performance initiative, he said, should focus on risk reduction, improved reliability and increased maintainability.

Evans defines performance as a measurement-driven approach to understand application behavior under load. This process is not about fiddling with algorithms and software switches but focuses instead on data and statistics.

Say I am SOAP web service provider and while trying to test my impl ,the underlying database is not available. How does vsi help in this scenario ?2. use wsdls to create vsi.. It may make an endpoint available in the virtual server but how does it help testing team since it would only have the raw response and not the actual provider response. So when…Continue
