DevOps for Quantum Computing

Azure Quantum with its Quantum Development Kit (QDK) makes it easy for quantum researchers and data scientists to start writing quantum algorithms backed by the reliability and scale of Azure. However, a quantum algorithm typically only represents part of a larger system. It also includes classical software components, leading to hybrid quantum systems. As consequence, the process for developing, deploying, monitoring, and evolving these systems with different roles involved becomes more complex. This blog post shows how DevOps practices need to adapt when software includes quantum components. Result is a repeatable, high-quality process for building, deploying, and monitoring hybrid quantum software.

Top 10 Tips to Secure Your APIs

The short-lived and dynamic nature of microservices that power modern applications makes traditional security practices – much of which have been manual – ineffective. Instead, organizations must adopt modern security practices and automation to secure application programming interfaces (APIs) with necessary techniques, catch security incidents before they become critical, and alert appropriate engineers in as close to real-time as possible.

Why DevOps Needs Machine Identity Management

Machine identity management can give DevOps teams the speed they need while improving an organization’s cybersecurity. DevOps, the set of practices that combines development and IT operations, is widely embraced by businesses due to its ability to shorten the software development and deployment lifecycle. Unfortunately, as with many other operations that seek to speed processes, the gains are frequently achieved at the expense of security. However, the use of a smart machine identity management strategy and tools can help ensure the speed is maintained while security is enforced.

Using Kubernetes to Run CI/CD Pipelines in Large-scale, Cloud-native Applications

Faster time-to-market and optimizing resources require developers to shorten the software development lifecycle. The traditional, waterfall approach is time-consuming and costly, because of which the adoption of DevOps has found favor with developers. One indication of this popularity is that the DevOps market is expected to grow at a CAGR of 25.2% between 2020-2025 to reach $12.5 billion by 2025.

Get more value from DevOps-incorporate a customer perspective

Many years ago, I wanted to impress everyone with a new software engineering job. I bought a book about the technology I used and contacted the recruitment manager and asked, “What can I do to prepare and prepare?” I wanted to follow the right path right away. His answer wasn’t what I expected.

Building Software that is Resilient to Supply Chain Attacks (includes link to download Cheat Sheet)

We are in the midst of many generations who have grown up building things with Lego blocks. Guess what! software is being snapped together in part pieces as well. You don’t have to write every last bit of code yourself. You can also mix your code with open source code and deliver finished applications much faster. Organizations developing software are adopting automated DevOps and CI/CD pipeline solutions to speed up the development and testing all the way to deployment.

AWS, Azure and GCP Pricing: The True Cost of DevOps

Amazon Web Services, Microsoft Azure DevOps services, and Google Cloud services are the most popular DevOps tools for software development. Amazon Web services held 32% of the total market in the 3rd quarter of 2021. Microsoft Azure comes in 2nd place with a 21% market share, followed by Google Cloud with 8%. The ‘basic package’ is significantly more cost-efficient with Google Cloud services. The second place goes to AWS. And Azure DevOps services, with their 2nd place on the market share, offer the most expensive set of on-premise products.

How customer feedback shaped the AWS Cloud Development Kit version 2

The DevOps movement has blurred the line between runtime code and infrastructure code, and it’s no surprise that engineers want to write both in the same language. This is why we created the AWS Cloud Development Kit (CDK), which enables you to define your cloud Infrastructure as Code (IaC) using the familiarity and expressive power of the same programming languages you use for your applications. Like many innovations at AWS, the CDK was born out of our relentless drive to simplify and reinvent. We had an internal problem to solve and the proof of concept was so compelling, it led to the creation of the AWS CDK as an open source project for anyone to use. It’s the same mindset that led to this significant update to CDK, which includes productivity improvements for developers working with CDK projects.
