DevOps, as the name says, is a combination of both Development and Operations. Like any other SDLC methodologies, DevOps also helps to improve the efficiency of the production of the software, but in a different way. It is nothing but a philosophy of software development, that brings in sync between the development team and the operations team in delivering a product in a much faster and efficient way. In DevOps, both the dev and the Ops teams work together to launch the product with a better understanding of each other’s roles.

How DevOps is different from Agile Methodology?

The agile methodology consists of several shorter iterations thereby enabling the team to deliver the product faster. This methodology consists of  Plan, Code, Test, Deploy, Evaluate, in each iteration and finally go live. The DevOps methodology is more like a revolutionary concept that helps to increase the collaboration between the teams. It is like an infinite loop consisting of Plan, Code, Build, Test, Release, Deploy, Operate and Monitor. Agile has frameworks like Scrum, Lean etc., whereas DevOps does not have any frameworks but the usage of multiple tools will automate the whole process.

What is the role of Testing in DevOps?

DevOps require Continuous Testing which means that the automation suite is scheduled automatically after every feature update. This continuous test occurs in Build, Release, and Deploy phases of DevOps life cycle. Selenium is the most common automation testing tool in this life cycle. Integration of TestNG Or Junit along with Selenium helps in the Test Case Management and Test Reports. Maven and Jenkins are also used as other continuous integration tools.

The different testing types in DevOps include the following list:

  • Unit Testing
  • Functional Testing
  • Load Testing
  • Stress Testing
  • Integration Testing
  • Regression Testing

Benefits of Devops Testing:

  • Faster time to market
  • Improves product efficiency
  • Higher success rate of release
  • Increase in Quality
  • All Team members are trained equally in all the skills
  • Decreases the gap between Dev and Ops team and increases the efficiency
