Best DevOps tools of 2019

DevOps ' development pace is one of the best decision-making processes in development, especially when using external software and platforms. Individuals working in the DevOps world rely on effective techniques in managing certain projects.

The techniques enable them to contribute codes to a common objective. These allow team members to leave or join easily. The team will always come up with techniques that facilitate and allow easier management of projects and scale up the workforce as needed.

In addition to good project management techniques, those employed in the DevOps environment depend on dynamic tools that allow them to contribute to a common goal. These tools include the following:


Software tools normally rely on a custom installation routine in order to be installed on a device that manages file and directory placement and operational cabling in the operating system.

By shipping an application together with its program, runtime, system assets, system libraries and settings, Docker fixes the deployment conundrum. Docker images are executed by the open-source Docket Engine on the OS and connect to the computer OS device kernel. This model allows the code inside to be completely segregated from other Docker containers operating on the same hardware, making them both of them safe.

The Docket technology works so well that Linux, Windows and the Cloud can now support the software. It is actually possible to develop Docker shared applications on Windows PC and Apple Mac. Overall, individuals who need transportable applications, Docker has become one of the go-to technologies.


Git is one of the tools used in modern technologies today. If you ask most developers of software to name a tool to handle distributed version control, they will most likely say' Git. What has helped Git to become the main force in the development of software is that it is both free and open source. But what keeps it relevant is ongoing development and an excellent code management feature set.

What Git excels about is the management of a software development situation that might involve the distribution of projects in multiple directions, allowing for separate code that can be merged or removed without disrupting the standard codebase.

The strength of this tool is that you can distribute the code, develop new features, and then modify the inherited structures, make those changes, and integrate them into the branch. Once a function on that branch has been completed, it can be combined with the standard code for wide project use. And, it can be limited until it is ready to share other related features. This method promotes the experimenting of disposable software and enables changes to be made at all levels without disrupting those working on the project.


Raygun is a cloud-based tool designed to control networks and detect bugs, and then provide a workflow to address problems it finds. It is best used by individuals who control the emergency services, who guide the crews to the site of an accident or fire and provide all the necessary information for those who attend.

Also, this tool has the ability to track an application, the customers who use it and evaluate their communication to provide insight into what causes an error or failure. It allows DevOps to recognize, replicate and solve problems smartly and effectively by being able to access diagnostic information and workflow resources.

This process is most relevant to software development teams that regularly deploy major updates and need to know that the new release works well for the point-of-sales staff or other mission-critical purposes. Raygun pricing is based on the number of processed error events or user sessions and is available on a monthly or annual subscription basis. 

Puppet enterprise

This tool is all about server management at different levels. In any DevOps controlled environment, puppet enterprise is a very powerful tool to use. What Puppet can do is provide a global infrastructure perspective, identify which hardware is running what services and containers, and highlight those potentially vulnerable.

However, it is also compliance-conscious and can ensure that servers are protected in the way they need to be and report various development to confirm that patches have been applied and upgrades have been executed. And, if developers know, Puppet provides a mechanism for deploying applications from a source-controlled repository to multiple cloud-native targets.

It is necessary for the Enterprise to get a proper vision of the computing infrastructure status and mission-critical applications. When implementing protection and enforcement programs, the reliability of that data can directly impact key business decisions. Puppet removes manual procedures and methods for crisis management and replaces them with automated processes that ensure reliability.

Gradle build tools

The goals of Gradle build tools are ambitious; it is working towards helping build any software faster, automating end-to-end development, and getting it to those who need it faster. To achieve these lofty goals, Gradle provides a means of announcing and executing all the tasks required for a complex construct.

Those who develop on one project only for a single platform may not find Gradle helpful, but those who work on multi-platform, multi-language, and multi-channel solutions will almost certainly do. Code can be compiled, tested, packaged and then shipped in a single click without handcrafting scripts or entering instructions on the command line.

Efficiency can be improved when you run higher performance networks into the software repository and if needed use a second computer for the construction process. 

Incredibly, for programmers, Gradle is available. But if you want to boost performance and reliability, for a quoted price, a paid Enterprise Gradle is available. Gradle has great community support, as with many open-source projects, and many community-building programs.
