GitOps is a fast-growing technology movement that is being talked about more and more. Our latest e-book, by Ian Miell, a Cloud Native engineer at Container Solutions, is aimed at anyone who finds themselves unsure about how to navigate this emergent way of working and wants to know more about it.
The GitOps concept originated in a blog post from the software consultancy Weaveworks in 2017 entitled ‘GitOps—Operation by Pull Request’. The word itself combines the name the source-control tool (Git), and its application to software operations (Ops). It’s an echo of DevOps, an earlier and related movement that sought to emphasise software operations and break down silos between different teams.
Here's how GitOps developed:
GitOps seeks to reduce load on operational teams by leveraging key features of Git that make reasoning about software delivery and maintenance easier. As a movement, it's grown alongside the development of related technologies, including Kubernetes, Terraform, ArgoCD, FluxCD, and JenkinsX.
