19 Jun 2017 Top 5 Issues Curtailing DevOps Adoption [64442], June 19th 2017

"DevOps may seem simple and logical on the surface, yet most of the companies we talk to are struggling in one aspect or another. This is no surprise: Successful DevOps initiatives require putting together a full toolset and simultaneously creating a smart team of developers, testers and project managers who are well-versed in cloud and agile technologies.

We favored separating each client's website onto its own VM for both segregation and organization, but steady growth meant we were managing more servers than we could handle. As we looked for ways to lower management overhead and make better use of resources, Docker hit the news, and we began to experiment with containerization for our web applications..."
