Where is the DBA in the DevOps tools ?


  • Database administrator job has been changed and it's not like before any more, In the past The DBA responsibility was limited within database which mean troubleshooting, backup , Performance tuning, high availability .. etc after few years new layer has been added to the responsibility which is application server layer for example weblogic ,Oracle embedded the weblogic with most of their products such as enterprise manager cloud, E-business suits, as i remember after three years another layer added to DBA knowledge which is virtualization and regarding to this virtualization  made the DBA life more easier and not like before, solution providing another layer of backup and server management.


However now everything has been changed and the market working under new term which is CLOUD including different vendor AWS, Azure, and Oracle, As DBA your knowledge shouldn't stop by only Database, within cloud there is new tools that can help the DBA with their daily Job and it's called Devops.

DBA usually review each change request to ensure that it is well thought out,They are in charge of monitoring their databases and keeping them available and high-performing, manage access to and the overall security of the platform.

Database automation frees the DBA from the bottleneck of the past that delayed application releases since there is different environment production, Pre-Production, Development or Testing, the DevOps Automation relieved of the pressures of constantly having to juggle and merge various teams’ database changes, are now free to help their organisations take bigger steps forward in ongoing innovation.

But what is the Devops ? And How can i use to make my Job Easier

DevOps is the combination of cultural philosophies, practices, and tools that increases an organization’s ability to deliver applications and services at high velocity: evolving and improving products at a faster pace than organizations using traditional software development and infrastructure management processes. This speed enables organizations to better serve their customers and compete more effectively in the market.

DevOps Tools
  • Docker
  • Jenkins
  • Ansible
  • Puppet
  • Nagios

There is more tools for sure each one of these tools having it's own purpose for example Docker is one of the powerful container solutions, A container image is a lightweight, stand-alone, executable package of a piece of software that includes everything needed to run it: code, runtime, system tools, system libraries, settings Available for both Linux and Windows based apps, containerized software will always run the same, regardless of the environment. Containers isolate software from its surroundings, for example differences between development and staging environments and help reduce conflicts between teams running different software on the same infrastructure.
