FAQ

  • How can DevOps benefit my organization?

    DevOps can:

    • Accelerate time to market

    • Improve collaboration between teams

    • Enhance product quality

    • Increase efficiency through automation

    • Ensure scalable and reliable infrastructure

    • Foster a culture of continuous improvement

    With these improvements, your infrastructure and software products get unlimited opportunities to scale, extend robustness and security, and become more competitive, while delivery and support processes gain consistency and financial efficiency.

  • How do you approach a new DevOps project?

    We start with an assessment of your current processes and infrastructure. Based on this, we develop a customized strategy and roadmap and select platforms and tools to fit your budget. As everything is approved, it's time to start! With constant monitoring and detailed reporting, we start implementing new practices step by step with regular demos and learning sessions with your team.

  • How do you ensure high availability and disaster recovery in a DevOps setup?

    We design systems with redundancy and built-in failover mechanisms. Depending on the goals and budgets, we utilize a wide range of logic and hardware solutions to ensure the requested uptime. For regular projects, we successfully utilize out-of-the-box tools provided by Azure, AWS, or Google. Commonly, it's enough to ensure less than an hour of downtime monthly, which is suitable for 99% of websites and applications. For more complicated products, that require even more redundancy, our DevOps team utilizes tools such as Azure Availability Zones spreading the workload between several physical facilities with independent technical maintenance, preventing downtime caused by physical damage to data centers. Then, if anything happens, we leverage backup vaults and other powerful recovery solutions to restore normal work as soon as possible. If you still have any questions about building the infrastructure that can withstand literally anything, from hacker attacks to natural disasters and even alien invasions, talk to our DevOps experts!

  • How do you manage and scale infrastructure for large-scale deployments?

    Depending on the complexity and requirements of a project, we combine several tools and approaches to ensure scalability and optimal performance. On the base level, we leverage Azure App Service and similar software. If more complexity is required, we use more advanced tools such as Azure Virtual Machine Scale Set (VMSS) and Kubernetes to scale resources. Alongside logic tools, we also rely on Application Insights in Azure Monitor for manual observation and spotting of bottlenecks before they inflict performance and urgent fixes.

  • Can DevOps be applied to legacy systems?

    For sure, it's possible to apply DevOps practices to legacy systems and get significant benefits. It may take a bit more time and effort, compared to development from scratch, to apply cutting-edge tools to legacy solutions, but it is really worth it, and we recommend DevOps integration as a vital part of upgrade processes.

  • How do you ensure security in a DevOps environment?

    Providing DevOps services, we adhere to all the existing security practices, such as regular code reviews and compliance checks. What's even more important, we rely on secure providers (Azure, AWS, Google Cloud) and rigidly follow their recommendations to ensure the security of the infrastructure developed by UKAD.

  • How do automated testing and monitoring work in DevOps?

    Automated testing is a crucial component of modern software development, involving the execution of predefined tests automatically as part of the Continuous Integration/Continuous Deployment (CI/CD) pipeline. This process ensures that any code changes do not introduce new defects or break existing functionality, maintaining the overall integrity of the application. Automated testing includes various types of tests, such as unit tests, integration tests, functional tests, and performance tests, all designed to catch issues early in the development cycle, reducing the time and cost associated with manual testing.

    Monitoring, on the other hand, involves continuously tracking the performance, availability, and overall health of both the application and its underlying infrastructure. Effective monitoring provides real-time insights into system behavior, enabling proactive identification and resolution of issues before they impact end users. This includes tracking key performance metrics, such as response times, error rates, and system resource utilization, as well as setting up alerts to notify the team of any anomalies or potential problems.

  • Can you customize DevOps solutions for specific business needs?

    We customize our DevOps solutions to meet the unique goals of each project. Beginning with a thorough business analysis, we identify your specific needs and objectives to determine the most effective solutions. Our team then presents multiple options, allowing you to choose the one that best fits your budget and requirements. Throughout the development phase, we provide regular demos and incorporate any necessary adjustments, ensuring you receive a solution that is perfectly tailored to your needs.
