The Backstory

A client had just gone live with a new Ecommerce site, a fresh deployment of Magento 2. They’d built it right, for the most part with load balancers, auto-scaling caching systems etc, but at the last minute their developer abandoned them. When they finally went live, things started going sideways. 30% of their orders were not making it and the web stack was crashing.

We were called in desperation….. dude I know you can fix this to which our response was that we don’t know that much about that platform… but OK, give me a day to look at it. First we learned quickly about how to manage the AWS stack and stop the Varnish server from crashing. The website was now stabilized. Next was to get to the orders.

The orders were failing because of some tax calculations. 

 

“The important part of the development is not the happy path, it’s how you handle and monitor the errors.”

Process & Results

But while DevOps as a development approach remained uncontested, the security aspects of the app development process largely remained under the shadow. There was a perception that along with the operations, app security should equally be a part of the development process. With the demand for integrating security with the product life cycle, the DevSecOps approach has emerged. This approach has already proven to play an instrumental role in reducing the security vulnerabilities of the apps. While integrating the security with the DevOps approach has always been of high demand, this requires a completely different range of processes and tools. DevOps is already known to boast of an agile development methodology.

Though the companies embracing DevSecOps development methodology are only a few in numbers, in the time to come many companies working with DevOps approach can actually embrace this new methodology for giving their projects.
