DevOps got off to a promising start. Way back in 2006, Amazon CTO Werner Vogel prophesied a hassle-free relationship between development and operations: “The traditional model is that you take your software to the wall that separates development and operations and throw it over and then forget about it. Not at Amazon. You build it, you run it. This brings developers into contact with the day-to-day operation of their software.”
This you-build-it-you-run-it movement, which became known as DevOps, got us all excited over the promise that it would destroy silos and get teams working together more efficiently than ever before.
