    Top 3 DevOps Tools for 2022: Meeting the Pressure of Faster Delivery

    The DevOps approach for smoother and more reliable software development is now widespread. It has helped reduce the time between fixes, improve the frequency of deployment and squeeze time to market. Forecasts suggest that the DevOps market will grow from US$4 billion it was in 2019 to US$17 billion in 2026.

    The rising popularity of containers has ensured that development and operations can work in tandem, instead of remaining in their siloes, turning DevOps into standard practice. Developers can now be confident their code can be quickly tested and taken to production, regardless of the environment in which it has been developed. This trend has been given a boost by Kubernetes and a host of DevOps tools allowing better version control to container management and from test and deployment automation tools to configuration management and server monitoring.

    DevOps is so popular now that the list of available tools is clearly getting overwhelming and difficult to get through.

    So, here is our shortlist of three DevOps tools that you should take note of in 2022:

    Crossplane: With changes in provisioning, Crossplane is a handy way to extend the framework Kubernetes has to offer to the cloud and to compose systems and assemble infrastructure. The control plane, designed to manage container workloads, can be extended to manage resources such as virtual machines necessary for Kubernetes clusters. Crossplane supports API-driven configuration and management of other infrastructure such as databases and makes it possible to deploy infrastructure resources across cloud providers.  This allows the Kubernetes community to leverage familiar YAML specifications to provision public cloud infrastructure and services without having to learn cloud-specific APIs or other infrastructure provisioning tools.

    Telepresence: Developers want to speed up how testing is done. They want to get better and faster at delivering software. Telepresence allows them to do this by using any code editor or debugger locally as if their laptops were in the remote Kubernetes cluster. Telepresence runs a single service locally while connecting that service to a remote Kubernetes cluster.  This allows developers to locally make changes to a service that may depend on other services in a cluster and be able to see the locally updated service in action, ensuring smaller and faster feedback loops.

    Lens: Lens is a great way to interact with standardized Kubernetes clusters. It takes development to the cloud and makes tools and services available at your fingertips. It never feels as if the data center is far away. There is no special configuration or expertise required to get going with Lens. Lens provides an integrated development environment that lets developers observe and interact with Kubernetes clusters without in-depth knowledge of kubectl commands.  It allows you to quickly view statistics, logs, identify errors and warnings all within a user-friendly UI.

    No one is going to write the perfect code first-time-off. Neither should developers aim to create perfect code. What they should do is give themselves development velocity through effective tools. The tools discussed above are designed to provide the extra push necessary to meet the pressure of faster delivery.
