7 Essential Tools For DevOps

For people less involved in technology:

DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity.


DevOps tools are a series of technologies that must be used to complete processes successfully.
These tools help with implementation and integration and shape the organization’s culture to become transformative.

Get to know the application of the Devops tools and their stages:

1 – Software compilation

  • Git

Git is a source code management (SCM) tool used across all software industries. Allows you to follow the progress of your work in development, where it is also possible to save different versions of the source code and return to the previous one when necessary.

Requires a hosted repository, such as Github, which offers unlimited private repositories. Free and open-source, it supports most version control features of check-in, merge, tags, commits, and branches.

During this phase, you manage various builds and versions of software.

2 – Test

  • Docker

In the testing phase, one of the most used development technologies among DevOps tools. Docker provides built-in container security and agile operations for both legacy and native cloud applications. It can easily automate application deployment and facilitates distributed and platform-independent development.

3 – Deployment

  • Vagrant

It is the phase of managing, scheduling, coordinating, and automating various product launches into production.

Vagrant is a popular DevOps tool that can be used with many other management tools to allow developers to create virtual machine environments within the same workflow. A growing number of organizations have started using Vagrant to help transition to the DevOps culture.

4 – Automation

  • Jenkins

Jenkins is an open-source server that helps automate the different stages of the delivery pipeline. Its popularity is attributed to its large plugin ecosystem (over 1,000), integrated with many other DevOps tools. Allows you to configure and customize the CD pipeline as per individual needs.

5 – Monitoring

  • Kubernetes

Ideal for large teams, Kubernetes builds on what Docker started in the field of containerization. 

Kubernetes is an open source software that allows you to deploy and manage containerized applications on a large scale. Kubernetes manages clusters of Amazon EC2 compute instances and runs on those container instances with deployment, maintenance, and scalability processes. With this DevOps tool, you can run any kind of containerized application using the same on-premises and cloud toolset.

6 – Monitoring 

  • Prometheus

Prometheus is a popular and mighty solution for Kubernetes and an open-source tool used for metrics-based monitoring and alerting. 

SoundCloud originally built Prometheus. Now it is a standalone open-source project maintained by Cloud Native Computing Foundation (CNCF).

7 – Monitoring 

  • Grafana

Grafana allows you to query, visualize, alert on and understand your metrics no matter where they are stored. You can create, explore, and share dashboards with your team and foster a data-driven culture.

Planning a solid and agile strategy is essential to ensure the successful implementation of DevOps processes.
