Asking the Experts: What will DevOps Look Like in 10 Years?

DevOps has already evolved quite a bit in just the last few years, it is hard to imagine what it will look like ten years from now. Using Agile as a model, which has now been around for nearly two decades, actual adoption of the DevOps methodologies will take time. In the 2018 State of Agile Report only around half of the survey’s respondents said the majority of teams within their organization were using agile and only 25 percent said that all teams were agile. There’s still a lot of room for growth and need for continued expansion efforts such …

Asking the Experts: Has the Definition of DevOps Changed?

DevOps is really a matter of perspective, right? The idea originated with a need for two siloed teams to exchange perspective and work together. If dev teams can better understand the objectives and goals of operations team members later down the line, they will be less likely to simply throw code “over the wall,” and will work to bake in operations priorities earlier in the software development lifecycle. If operations teams understand the work and processes of their development counterparts, operations teams can improve communication and better respect the time and effort of devs. It’s a win-win because the result …

Configuring TeamForge Git Integration with Git LFS using AWS S3

Welcome to the third blog in the series on how to configure TeamForge with Gerrit replication enabled.

As we gear up for our fall events, including the DevOps Enterprise Summit October 22-24, we have been talking with some of the industry’s foremost leaders in DevOps thinking.

This is the second blog post in our series related to the configuring replication with Git LFS using Amazon S3 Bucket.

We will use S3 Cross Region Replication (CRR) feature to replicate the objects from one S3 bucket to another. That way the …

TeamForge Replication with Git LFS S3 backend

Amazon S3 replication mechanism

Let’s talk a bit about Git LFS (Large File Storage) in context of Git replication with TeamForge. What is Git LFS? As you can read on Git LFS Project page: Git Large File Storage (LFS) replaces large files such as audio samples, videos, datasets, and graphics with text pointers inside Git, while storing the file contents on a remote server. What is important here is that the file contents of large files are stored outside the Git repository, on the remote server, the Git LFS Server. The LFS support in TeamForge is based on the open source Gerrit LFS plugin. …
