Transforming How Fanatics Licenses Sports Apparel with Embotics

As server virtualization continues to mature, many organizations are moving beyond simple virtualization into public, private or hybrid cloud environments. Such environments allow authorized users to create their own virtual machines based on templates that are listed in a service cloud. However, self-service models introduce additional complexity and increase the potential for IT resources to be wasted and for costs to spiral out of control. In turn, IT departments are challenged with managing infrastructures that deploy tens of thousands of virtual machines across multiple operating systems in multiple datacenters and fulfilment centers.

But, another impetus for DevOps is the cloud services world. In the cloud native world, delivery is not preparing a software package for a customer to install or upgrade in their environment. Instead customers purchase a service that developer is providing, hence deployment means updating a cloud-based production environment in a seamless manner while making sure there is no disruption in service.
