DevOps has emerged in recent years as a novel paradigm to facilitate the interaction between development and IT operations. For example, DevOps advocates the use of automated tools and infrastructure-as-code as a way to increase the agility of IT application delivery.
In this talk, I will first discuss opportunities and challenges that DevOps brings to the area of performance engineering. I will then review automated tools to meet performance and cost requirements since the early design stages of an application. Finally, I will present a concrete example of performance aware DevOps, namely the MODAClouds platform for multi-cloud software engineering (http://multiclouddevops.com).
