    DevOps Definition: DevOps is, in many ways, an umbrella concept that refers to anything that smoothes out the interaction between development and operations. DevOps is a response to the growing awareness that there is a disconnect between what is traditionally considered development activity and what is traditionally considered operations activity. This disconnect often manifests itself as conflict and inefficiency.  More details are at:
