What Exactly Is DevOps as a Service (DaaS), And Why Choose Ayont?

As a DevOps as a Service company, we get that question a lot from potential new clients.

And this short post will provide you with some simple, straightforward answers. Before we get started, though, we wanted to share some thoughts on DevOps as a Service from the global technology information providers at TechTarget:

DevOps as a Service is a delivery model for a set of tools that facilitates collaboration between an organization’s software development team and the operations team. In this delivery model, the DevOps as a Service provider provides the disparate tools that cover various aspects of the overall process and connects these tools to work together as one unit.

That’s a pretty good high-level definition. Now let’s drill down a little deeper. Here’s what you’ll learn in this post:

  • What is DevOps as a Service? (In 125 words or less!)
  • What is DaaS with Ayont? (You might not want or need DaaS)
  • Where Can You Go for More Info?

So let’s get started with the basics.

What is DevOps as a Service? (in 125 words or less!)

We agree in part with the TechTarget definition. DaaS is a delivery model for a set of tools that help automate and manage the software development lifecycle. But it’s more than that.

In a nutshell, DevOps as a Service orchestrates numerous automated processes, services, infrastructures, workflows, and tools. The goal is to enable software development teams to deploy high-quality releases in the shortest amount of time.

You can accomplish that goal of delivering error-free, or as close as possible to error-free, code to your end-user community with an internal DevOps team or by using a managed service.

That choice is made by software companies every day, and there are always valid reasons for choosing a direction.

So why consider using a DaaS provider?

Here are some of the more common reasons software teams choose us for their DevOps orchestration partner:

  • They need optimized, seamless DevOps orchestration and can’t afford to waste time waiting for the recruiting and hiring process to play out
  • They’ve been using a developer as their DevOps resource (that never works!)
  • They like the price-value inflection point of our DaaS offerings
  • They’re looking for technological objectivity
  • They like our transparency, laser focus, and the fact that we’re 100% U.S.-based
  • They own all the IaC IP

Does any of this sound familiar? If so, we’re a potential great fit.

So what’s the bottom line? Our business model is flexible, and we always respect our clients’ goals and business strategies.
