Tech ONTAP Podcast - Episode 6.jpg

Garrett Mueller.jpgDevOps is all the rage these days, and enterprises everywhere, of all sizes, want to eek the most efficiency from their people and infrastructure.  The DevOps mentality is one way to help.  DevOps strives to increase efficiency by focusing on communication, collaboration, automation, and shared responsibility between development and operations organizations.

This week’s episode features Garrett Mueller, Technical Director, as we discuss DevOps and continuous integration at NetApp.  Clustered Data ONTAP 8.3 was the first release which fully takes advantage of the new continuous integration method of testing and validation for code changes at NetApp, which has led to it being one of the highest quality releases ever!  We also talk about how the Agile Development Method helps organizations identify bottlenecks, increase productivity, and decrease time to delivery.
