Developers vs Ops

The last ten years have brought enormous changes to production environments, driven by a best-of-breed approach to production infrastructure enabled by open source and cloud.  This has been a boon for developers in terms of flexibility and productivity,  but it’s also placed a new set of challenges and expectations on Ops.

The Golden Age of Developers

In the past, a developer’s toolbox was limited to a few, monolithic solutions from legacy vendors (think Oracle, IBM, HP).  Solutions were slow to integrate and slow to evolve  -- and they were expensive. Whether they suited your needs well or not, once your company bought them you had damn well better use them.

Today, the abundance of open source and cloud solutions has liberated developers from their reliance on legacy tools and enabled a best-of-breed approach to infrastructure.  Developers can choose exactly the right tool for the right job.  These tools are free or cheap to try, fast to integrate, and can scale with your needs.  These days, you’ll often see a company use seven different databases (Redis for caching, Elasticsearch for search, MySQL, etc.), rather than being locked into a single deployment from a large vendor.  The same goes for monitoring tools, compute environments, application frameworks and so on. For developers, it’s like being a kid in a candy store.
