Take a deep dive into DevOps, the organizational and cultural movement that aims to increase software delivery velocity, improve service reliability, and build shared ownership among software stakeholders.

Take quick check


Achieve elite performance in your software development and delivery

Increase the speed of your deployments

The best teams deploy 208x more frequently and have lead times 106x faster when compared to low performers.

Improve the stability of your software

High performers don’t trade off speed and stability. The best teams recover from incidents 2.604x faster and have change fail rates 7x lower.

Build security in from the start

High performers spend 50% less time fixing security issues compared to low performers.

Explore common use cases for DevOps

Best Practice
DevOps capabilities

Explore the technical, process, measurement, and cultural capabilities which drive higher software delivery and organizational performance.

Getting started with Cloud Build

Use Cloud Build to build a Docker image and push the image to Container Registry.

Getting started with Artifact Registry

Learn about Artifact Registry, a universal package manager for all your build artifacts and dependencies. Try the Docker quickstart for an example of what it can do.

Getting started with Cloud Monitoring

Use Cloud Monitoring for visibility into the performance, availability, and overall health of your cloud-powered applications.

Best Practice
Jenkins on Google Kubernetes Engine

Jenkins on Google Kubernetes Engine allows you to improve software delivery performance with continuous integration, continuous delivery, and automated deployment.

Best Practice
Defining SLOs

Service level objectives (SLOs) help teams define a target level of reliability. SLOs allow teams to monitor for business decisions and to experiment safely.

Creating continuous delivery pipelines

Use Spinnaker and Google Kubernetes Engine to create continuous delivery pipelines, allowing for lightweight change approvals and automated deployments.

Cloud Monitoring metric export

Export metrics to BigQuery for long-term analysis, allowing you to improve monitoring and observability, monitor for business decisions, and create visual displays.

Best Practice
Using Terraform with Google Cloud

Provision Google Cloud resources declaratively with Terraform.
