In this video course, Matt Stine ties together the triad of DevOps, continuous delivery, and cloud infrastructure. He shows how this combination of principles, practices, tools, and architectural techniques can help you achieve the desired balance of business agility and resilient systems. He offers a definition of the cloud in terms of its essential characteristics; examines its various deployment and service models; explores the common and public capabilities of cloud infrastructure; and drills deep into the two architectural qualities that enable you to exploit the capabilities of cloud infrastructure: disposability and replaceability.
