How many servers can be managed by one system administrator? This question is pretty hard to answer since it depends decisively on the tasks that need to be operated. It is clear, however, that the amount of servers one engineer can manage has increased tremendously over the time, and is still growing. Public and private clouds, in combination with automation tools, enables us to automate many daily tasks. In a modern IT infrastructure almost everything can, and should, be automated. Starting from the creation of a new instance up to software deployment. In this whole scenario, automated monitoring is an essential component.
At OpsGenie, we integrate with the tools your team already uses in order to provide the best alert management and incident response platform possible. Our integrations team is always hard at work to provide these integrations for not only new tools, but tools requested by customers specifically. If an integration does not exist for a monitoring, ticketing, chatops, reporting, or any other kind of tool your team uses, our integrations team can evaluate to see if one can be made. Contact us for more information or requests!
Adopting a true DevOps culture is chock-full of challenges such as shifting away from legacy infrastructure to a more microservices-centric approach, integrating tools, managing priorities, environment provisioning, traceability, and more. However, implementing an approach in which Dev teams and Ops teams can work together, using the same assets, can drastically change the way an organization is able to move forward with each new release. For DevOps teams, proactively monitoring “left” of production can be a revolutionary element in achieving these goals.

DevOps is not just about developers and operations people working together or creating a culture of collaboration. It is about tightening the feedback flow. It is about working for the common good of your systems and applications. It is about learning from mistakes. These are all enabled by people and the tools that people use. Continuous delivery is a key enabler for DevOps because it helps you deploy and release your code with confidence.
OpsGenie keeps you aware and in control of any incident.
