DaaS, or DevOps as a Service, is an approach to IT services. It focuses on delivering DevOps practices and tools to customer’s organisations.
DevOps is a set of cultural philosophies, practices and tools. It aims to integrate and streamline software development (Dev) and IT operations (Ops). It results in faster and more reliable software delivery.
DevOps is constantly evolving through the practice of its application. Today it’s mostly the DevSecOps model, which also includes security practices.
DaaS is service model in which a third-party provider offers tools, practices and expertise to help organisations implement and maintain a DevOps approach without building and managing the infrastructure themselves.
This will benefit companies that want to implement DevOps but don’t have the internal resources, knowledge or time to configure and manage the required tools and processes.
DaaS providers offer a set of tools to cover full software development lifecycle. DaaS tools include version control, continuous integration, automated testing, deployment, monitoring and more. These tools are often cloud-based and can be accessed by development and operations teams as needed.
DaaS providers often help organisations implement DevOps practices. Those include infrastructure as code (IaC), continuous integration and continuous delivery (CI/CD), automated testing, and collaboration between development and operations teams. They help organisations adopt best practices to their specific needs.
DaaS emphasises automation of development, security and operational processes. This includes automating deployment pipelines, provisioning infrastructure, managing configurations and controlling their security, resulting in faster and more consistent software delivery.
DaaS solutions are typically built on cloud platforms, allowing resources to scale up or down depending on demand. This scalability ensures that organizations can handle a variety of workloads without major infrastructure changes.
DaaS often includes tools to monitor application performance and security, track usage and analyze data to identify areas for improvement. This data-driven approach helps organizations make informed decisions about optimizing their software delivery processes.
Devops as a Service emphasises collaboration between development, security and operations teams. DaaS platforms facilitate this collaboration by providing common tools, dashboards and communication channels that enable the seamless exchange of information.
DaaS – DevSecOps platforms – provide automated security checks and scans at various stages of the software development lifecycle. This includes static application security testing (SAST), dynamic application security testing (DAST) and interactive application security testing (IAST), among others.
Security is integrated into the Continuous Integration and Continuous Delivery (CI/CD) pipeline, ensuring security assessments are performed with every code change and deployment. This helps catch security vulnerabilities early in the development process.
DevOps as a Service often focuses on ensuring that the tools and practices they offer comply with security standards and compliance regulations. This helps organisations maintain a secure and compliant development and deployment environment.
