What is GitOps?


GitOps is a way of managing infrastructure and applications using Git. It treats infrastructure as code, which means that all changes to infrastructure are made in a Git repository. This allows for better collaboration, security, and faster deployments.


Key components of GitOps:


Git repository: This is where all infrastructure code is stored.


CI/CD pipeline: This pipeline automates the building, testing, and deployment of infrastructure changes.


Application deployment tool: This tool is used to deploy applications to infrastructure.


Monitoring system: This system monitors the health of infrastructure and applications.


Benefits of using GitOps:


Improved collaboration: All changes to infrastructure are made in a Git repository, which makes it easy for teams to collaborate on infrastructure changes.


Increased security: Infrastructure code is stored in a Git repository, which makes it easy to track changes and roll back to previous versions if necessary.


Faster deployments: GitOps can automate the deployment of infrastructure changes, which can lead to faster deployments.


Challenges of implementing GitOps:


Change in mindset: GitOps requires a change in mindset from traditional infrastructure management practices.


Discipline: All participants in the GitOps process need to be disciplined in following the GitOps principles.
