Q1. What is DevOps?
Ans: DevOps isn't a product but rather a culture and process. There are certain technologies and
skills someone working in a DevOps environment should have.

Q2. How DevOps helps organization?
Ans: The recently released 2017 State of DevOps Report uncovers some impressive statistics. High
performing organizations that effectively utilize DevOps principles achieve:
46x more frequent software deployments than their competitors.
96x faster recovery from failures.
440x faster lead time for changes.
Higher levels of customer satisfaction and operational efficiency.

Q3. How many IT companies are using DevOps Model?
Ans: DevOps adoption has jumped from 66% in 2016 to 74% in 2016. With such a rate in 2 years it
will go more than 90 %.

Q4. Why should I learn DevOps?
Ans: With such a high adoption rate of DevOps across IT industry, it has opened lot of Job
Windows that are not yet fulfilled. Companies are desperately looking for DevOps Engineers who
can help them setting up DevOps Environment.

Q5. Do DevOps Engineers/Consultant/Architect get paid well?
Ans: DevOps are one of the highly paid job as per Business Insider, Glassdoor and PayScale

Q6. How will this course help me learn DevOps?
Ans: Our focus is on training you on Real Time use cases and not just one by one introduction to
tools. For this very reason we have created Vprofile application. You will learn all the latest and
greatest DevOps tool in the market and most importantly integrate them together to setup
Orchestration of Continuous Delivery. Yes we said orchestration and not simple automation scripts.

Q7. What is Vprofile Application?

Ans: Vprofile is a java based Web Application written by our expert Developers. Its a social
networking website like Facebook.
In Real time you will have multiple services/servers working together to create a web service like
Facebook or Twitter or Amazon or Flipkart. To deliver features to the website, developers will code
new features and Operations team will deploy them into production servers. By using DevOps
principles and Tools we can deliver features more rapidly to production systems.
We have taken the same approach and will train you in the similar manner.
