At a certain stage of development, companies are often faced with the problem of scaling up their infrastructure and production speed. DevOps, a combination of “development” and “operations”, helps companies automate the development process and achieve better delivery of products and services.
We’ve identified the top 10 DevOps tools essential for startups and SMEs, according to specific needs.

CI/CD DevOps tools

CI/CD toolsautomate the build, test and deploymentprocess. They facilitate and accelerate the release of new features and updates. In particular, these tools enable bugs to be detected at the very start of the development process, so that they can be corrected ahead of time.

Jenkins

Jenkins – an open source automation server that lets developers build, test and deploy apps.

GitLab

GitLab – an open source collaborative development platform used by over 100,000 organizations. Together with a version control tool such as Git, which enables developers to track changes to their code over time and roll back code if necessary, these are essential for smooth collaborative working.

Configuration management tools

Configuration management tools enable companies to manage and automate the configuration of their infrastructure, including servers, databases and applications. These tools guarantee consistency and reduce the risk of configuration drift, which can lead to downtimes or security vulnerabilities.

Ansible

Ansible – an open source configuration management tool that enables developers toautomate the configuration of servers, and infrastructure in the broadest sense.

Terraform

Terraform – an Open Source Infrastructure as Code (IaC) tool that uses a declarative language (HCL) to deploy resources in different environments.

Containerization tools

Containerization tools enable companies to package applications and their dependencies in containers that can be deployed anywhere, making it easy to move applications between different environments and Cloud providers.

Docker

Docker – an open source containerization platform that lets developers package applications and their dependencies.

Kubernetes

Kubernetes – an open sourceorchestration platform that automates the deployment, scaling and management of containerized applications.

Rancher

Rancher – an open-source product that centralizes the creation and management of Kubernetes clusters via a graphical interface accessible from a web browser and/or API.

DevOps tools not DevOps

DevOps is based on collaboration and communication between teams. Having the right DevOps tools can make a big difference. But tools such as Discord, Slack or Notion also enable team members to share information more simply and collaborate more effectively.

Monitoring and warning tools

Monitoring and alert tools enable companies to track the health of their applications and infrastructure, and receive alerts in the event of problems. These tools help to identify problems quickly and avoid downtime, which can be costly for businesses.

Prometheus

Prometheus – an open source performance monitoring system that stores data in an in-memory database. It provides real-time visualization of metrics such as CPU load, memory usage and error rates.

Grafana

Grafana – an open-source data visualization tool, often used in conjunction with Prometheus. It lets you create graphs and dashboards to analyze performance data from different systems in a simple, intuitive way.

ELK

ELK Stack – a collection of open source tools (Elasticsearch, Logstash and Kibana) that enable developers to collect, store and visualize logdata.

Test automation tools

Test automation tools enable bugs and other problems to be detected early on in the development process. These tools save time andimprove quality by enabling developers to test code more frequently and more thoroughly.

Without neglecting the importance of testing, these tools are best implemented when the previous ones are already well established 😁

Conclusion

In conclusion, DevOps is an essential approach for startups and SMEs wishing to streamline their software development processes and achieve faster, more efficient delivery of their features. By using the right DevOps tools, companies can reduce risk and improve collaboration between teams.
