A lot can change in the DevOps world in a year.
Over the past twelve months, Docker released Docker Datacenter and started to focus more on enterprise use. HPE announced new automated testing tools. Capital One — of “What’s in your wallet?” fame — built an open source DevOps dashboard. VMware announced “Kubernetes as a Service.” Christine Parizo has a good review of the year’s news at TechRepublic.
So, to understand how else the industry has changed over the past year, we are announcing the second annual edition of The Logz.io DevOps Pulse. The 2016 survey — you can see the complete results here — found out that open source had gained mainstream acceptance, cloud-based infrastructure was not as popular as commonly believed, and the industry was increasingly transitioning to microservices.
For 2017, we are covering the same important issues as well as introducing new sections on DevOps culture, security, and cost management. Here are just a few of the questions:
- What is your annual salary? (we will present the answers to this question per region)
- Are you using serverless in your application logic?
- What percentage of your infrastructure is based on the public cloud?
- Which cloud are you using?
- What tools do you use for security monitoring?
- What cloud cost management tools do you use?
- What are the hardest parts of establishing DevOps?
- What are the key issues you’ve experienced in DevOps implementation?
- How much pressure do you feel at work?
- Can you see yourself burning out?
As always, the more data we have, the more accurate the results. Please help us to make the report as complete as comprehensive as possible by going to the survey and then answering the questions. (And sharing this post with your friends and colleagues would not hurt!) Of course, all of the information will remain completely anonymous and will never be given to any third-party.
The whole study takes just a few minutes, and those who participate will be entered into a raffle to win a $100 Amazon gift card as well as be the first to receive the survey results over e-mail.
We’ll announce the results in the coming weeks.
