We're wrapping up the third annual Puppet Labs DevOps survey, and we're on track to double the number of respondents from last year's survey.
Here's our CTO, Nigel Kersten, on why the survey ought to be of interest to developers and ops folks alike: "We learned quite a few things from our last survey, but for me the most interesting results were the undeniable facts that actual adoption of DevOps practices had accelerated significantly, that this acceleration was no longer primarily restricted to web operations, and that these practices were enabling companies of all sizes to ship code faster and with fewer failures. "Given all this, it's a no-brainer to run the survey again this year.
In order to measure trends, we'll keep collecting data around many of the same points as in previous years, but we'll also be investigating a few new areas to mirror the changes we've seen in the past year: Have DevOps culture and practices moved to more mainstream enterprise environments? What organizational behaviors correlate with high performance? Are DevOps practices breaking down traditional silos of network and storage management? Are the highest performing organizations still accelerating away from the pack?
