DevOps Tools Mapping

DevOps is one of the hottest topics nowadays. Many organisations have the DevOps practice underway or on-the-way. This widespread demand for DevOps is driving the evolvement of DevOps tools. These tools then empower users to effectively manage and control their DevOps Lifecycles. There are so many tools available in the market. We’ll use this article to map the popular ones out.

DevOps Lifecycle

To group these tools into small “buckets”, we’ll follow the DevOps lifecycle stages highlighted in the diagram below (please bear with my hairy drawing):

There are various DevOps lifecycle definitions and their stage breakdowns. Please consider the above mapping as a reference instead of hard rules. Aligning to these stages, let’s take a look at tools for each stage.

DevOps Tools

A few notes before using the tools mapping list below:

  • Each tool listing comes with a hyperlink that points to its official website
  • Some tools may appear in more than one stages
  • We’ll periodically update the list with new or changes of tools/platforms
