20 Most Promising DevOps Solution Providers 2016

The DevOps landscape continues to mature with more enterprises continuing to adopt the agile practices into their existing infrastructure. DevOps has turned out to be the most promising approach for consistently giving businesses an edge in the market. The arena has also witnessed a paradigm shift in the use of Docker as it drives the adoption of agile and lean practices. According to the ‘State of the Cloud Report’ by RightScale, Docker usage has more than doubled, from 13 percent to 27 percent.

The adoption of DevOps has been more evident in large enterprises, compared to Small and Medium Businesses (SMBs). Reports indicate that technologies supporting DevOps toolchain have been expected to grow by 21 percent globally. Chef, Puppet, Ansible, and Salt are some noteworthy configuration tools that companies leverage. The toolchains enable continuous integration, deployment, and delivery to successfully drive the DevOps approach. Previously, firms were focused on deploying containers over virtual machines. However, they are now gradually deploying these containers over bare metal servers.

Few concerns still plague the adoption of a comprehensive DevOps strategy. Security and lack of experience is what perturbs organizations the most. Enterprises are slowly realizing the need for expanding their know-how about DevOps, besides focusing on activities which assist in enhancing the experience. To help navigate the DevOps landscape, our distinguished selection panel, comprising CEOs, CIOs, VCs, industry analysts and the editorial board of CIOReview narrowed the final 20 providers that exhibit competence in delivering DevOps solutions.
