“I don’t have permission to do this!” That’s one of many phrases that I used to hear from a couple of developers when trying to introduce them to a Configuration Management tool. This barrier was, and still is in some cases, a major obstacle in companies that didn’t adhere to the DevOps movement and practices, a problem that I like to call as “The Wall”. If you are questioning, yes, I am a huge Pink Floyd fan!
“The Wall” is characterized when, for some reason(s), developers, and operations don’t find a middle ground and share the responsibilities. What it will probably result in is a rigid and unreliable application. In a world, where requirements are constantly modified due to customer behavior, these teams will likely fail, when trying to achieve a stable, resilient, and flexible platform. It’s not easy to deal with this cultural problem, and one of the main pillars that support this is technical complexity. All sides have their own specifics, problems, architecture, languages… If we just throw packages from one side to the other, we are just adding “another brick in the wall”. There is a necessity to translate this entanglement and meet halfway, working with platforms like Kubernetes, a container orchestrator that can provide a smooth approach when introducing teams to areas that they didn’t know before.
