DORA Metrics for DevOps Performance Tracking

August 9, 2023
00
INTRODUCTION TO DORA METRICS:
This blog is to explain the DevOps Research and Assessment capabilities to understand delivery and operational performance for better organizational performance.
DORA — DORA (DevOps Research and Assessment) metrics help us to measure the DevOps performance if there are low or elite performers. The four metrics used are deployment frequency (DF), lead time for changes (LT), mean time to recovery (MTTR), and change failure rate (CFR).

The four essentials of DORA metrics:

  1. Deployment frequency
  2. Lead time for changes
  3. Mean time to recovery
  4. Change failure rate


Deployment Frequency :

Deploy frequency measures how often you deploy changes to a given target environment. Along with Change lead time, Deploy frequency is a measure of speed.

Deployment Frequency also provides us with Batch Size Breakdowns,

Allowing you to filter the code changes based on Small batch, Medium, Large, and Gigantic batch sizes.

  1. Small — usually 1 pull request, 1–10 commits, and a few hundred lines of code changed
  2. Medium — usually 1–2 pull requests, 10–30 commits, and many hundreds of lines of code changed
  3. Large — usually 2–4 pull requests, 20–40 commits, and many hundreds of lines of code changed
  4. Gigantic — usually 4 or more pull requests or 30 or more commits or many thousands of lines of code changed.

Lead Time for Change:

Change lead time measures the time it takes for a change to go from its initial start of coding to being deployed in its target environment. Like Deploy frequency, Change lead time is a measure of speed (whereas Change failure rate and MTTR are measures of quality or stability).

In addition to the Lead Time for Change, Sleuth provided us with a detailed breakdown of how much time your teams, on average, are spending.

  • Coding — the time spent from the first commit (or the time spent from the first transition of an issue to an “in-progress state) to when a pull request is opened
  • Review lag time — the time spent between a pull request being opened and the first review
  • Review time — the time spent from the first review to the pull request being merged
  • Deploying — the time spent from pull request merge to deployment

Mean Time to Recovery:

Change failure rate measures the percentage of deployed changes that cause their target environments to end up in a state of failure. Along with MTTR, Change failure rate is a measure of the quality, or stability of your software delivery capability.

Change Failure Rate

Measures the quality and stability while deployment frequency and Lead Time for Changes don’t indicate the quality of the software but just the velocity of the delivery.

Here’s a table of how DORA metrics are calculated depending on the deployment that occurred, coding and review time, time is taken to restore from an incident or a failure, and failure rate that occurred due to the deployments.

Apart from the four metrics of DORA, there is a fifth one, Reliability, happens to be most important when it comes to operational performance which brings together DevOps and SRE teams to build us a better infrastructure and software. The Reliability metrics is a great way to showcase a team’s overall software delivery performance.

Become an Elite :

According to the most recent State of DevOps report, elite performers have recently grown to now represent 20% of survey respondents. High performers represent 23%, medium performers represent 44%, and low performers only represent 12%.

CONCLUSION :

DORA metrics are a great way to measure the performance of your software development and deployment practices. DORA metrics can help organizations to measure software delivery and stability to a team’s improvement, which also decreases the difficulties and allows for quicker, higher quality software delivery.

AWS Security and Ankercloud: Your Trusted Compliance Partner

November 7, 2023
00

Amazon Web Services (AWS), a prominent player in the cloud computing landscape, has become a cornerstone for countless businesses seeking scalability, flexibility, and efficient financial management. However, the increasing dependence on the cloud has also given rise to new challenges, particularly in the realm of security. This is where Ankercloud, a dedicated partner in AWS security, comes into play. In this article, we'll explore Ankercloud's expertise in AWS security and how it aligns seamlessly with the shared responsibility model.

Understanding the Shared Responsibility Model

Before delving into the invaluable role that Ankercloud plays in AWS security, it's vital to grasp the Shared Responsibility Model. This model defines who bears the responsibility for what in the public cloud environment, distinguishing between the cloud service provider (in this case, AWS) and the customer.

AWS Responsibility

AWS takes charge of the "Security of the Cloud." This encompasses the security and maintenance of the underlying infrastructure, including hardware, network structure, and physical security of data centers. AWS also manages low-level configurations and operating systems on its servers.

Customer Responsibility

On the other hand, customers are responsible for the "Security in the Cloud." This includes configuring and securing the services they use and the data they upload. Their responsibilities encompass the security of their cloud architecture, the setup and utilization of AWS services, and the maintenance of their code, operating systems, and containers.

Shared Controls

Certain controls in the cloud environment fall under both AWS and customer responsibilities, depending on the context and perspective. These shared controls encompass patching, settings and configuration, and awareness and training. It is incumbent upon both AWS and customers to make sure that their employees are well-informed and trained in the latest security practices.

When it comes to cloud security, one common concern is the fear of unauthorized access to sensitive data. However, it's essential to understand how data is handled in the cloud to alleviate these concerns.

AWS structures its global coverage into regions and availability zones to ensure data redundancy and disaster recovery. Customer data does not leave the specified region without explicit permission. Data encryption is a priority for AWS, and customers are responsible for encrypting their data. AWS services like S3 and DynamoDB use AES-256 encryption by default.

Creating backups is crucial for data reliability, and AWS provides services like AWS Glacier for data backup. Customers have control over backup frequency and retention policies, ensuring that their data is protected. Importantly, access to data in the cloud is limited to customers, as AWS employees cannot access customer data, and any hardware accessed is thoroughly wiped before use.

To guarantee the security and compliance of cloud services, AWS adheres to various industry standards and programs. Some of these include the Cloud Computing Compliance Controls Catalog (C5), ISO/IEC 27000:2018, and PCI DSS. These standards help assess and maintain the security of AWS services and demonstrate their commitment to security.

With the foundations of cloud compliance in mind, we turn to Ankercloud, your trusted compliance partner in the AWS ecosystem.
