[Azure DevOps Services (formerly VSTS)] is well suited for agile teams. It is a digital kanban for teams to access anywhere at any time. Especially during covid when most companies are still remote, it allows teams to fully perform and still be functional in operating within an agile methodology. It also gives visibility to teams capacity.

Kubernetes

Kubernetes is ideally when container orchestration is required, allowing to scale an application up or down depending on the workload of the application/service. Portability of the Helm chart definition makes it possible to change the hosting platform easily without rewriting the whole application stack or depending on another configuration management tool (e.g. Ansible).

Pros

Microsoft

  • Flexible Requirements Hierarchy Management: AZDO makes it easy to track items such as features or epics as a flat list, or as a hierarchy in which you can track the parent-child relationship.
  • Fast Data Entry: AZDO was designed to facilitate quick data entry to capture work items quickly, while still enabling detailed capture of acceptance criteria and item properties.
  • Excel Integration: AZDO stands out for its integration with MS Excel, which enables quick updates for bulk items.

Kubernetes

  • Makes sure that the workload remains UP & running by maintaining the desired state.
  • Gives a lot of flexibility in choosing the networking, storage, monitoring, etc solutions of your choice.
  • The biggest advantage is to upgrade the application with a new version without any downtime.
  • Portability of the code is possible up to a great extent.

Cons

Microsoft

  • Column sorting when in filtered states.
  • A way to show cross-team dependencies.
  • A customized "From" field for notifications. Sometimes when a mail comes from Azure DevOps the teams do not realize that I am sending it
  • A way to do online poker that doesn't require a plug-in.

Kubernetes

  • We had several problems with its NFS, which is responsible for syncing the code across the cluster
  • On several instances the pods go into UNKNOWN state in which case restarting the entire node is the only solution
  • As a user of the existing setup given to me, I wasn't able to allocate only some CPU cores on a single host. It was either all or zero making cluster utilization sub-optimal

    I don't think our organization will stray from using VSTS/TFS as we are now looking to upgrade to the 2012 version. Since our business is software development and we want to meet the requirements of CMMI to deliver consistent and high quality software, this SDLC management tool is here to stay. In addition, our company uses a lot of Microsoft products, such as Office 365, Asp.net, etc, and since VSTS/TFS has proved itself invaluable to our own processes and is within the Microsoft family of products, we will continue to use VSTS/TFS for a long, long time.

    Usability

    Microsoft

    Azure DevOps is a powerful, complex cloud application. As such there are a number of things it does great and something where there is room for improvement. One of those areas would be in usability. In my opinion it relies too much on search. There is no easy way to view all projects or to group them in a logical way. You need to search for everything.

    When we've had issues, both Microsoft support and the user community have been very responsive. DevOps has an active developer community and frankly, you can find most of your questions already asked and answered there. Microsoft also does a better job than most software vendors I've worked with creating detailed and frequently updated documentation.

    Alternatives Considered

    Azure DevOps is much easier to implement and use on a daily basis than VersionOne. This is based on end-user feedback and my personal experience as well. ADO has more features and seems to get updated more frequently than VersionOne as well. VersionOne is less expensive overall than ADO, but our company prefers to use ADO because it has a lot more benefits.

    Most of the required features for any orchestration tool or framework, which is provided by Kubernetes. After understanding all modules and features of the K8S, it is the best fit for us as compared with others out there.

    Return on Investment

    Microsoft

    • It provides a great IDE to make things easier, clear, and compact. It has always been a positive ROI
    • It's worth the money. I don't think any other software could replace the VS. It has helped us a lot to making things ready on time
    • The only thing I dislike is that it takes a lot of memory space when in an idle state

    • Because of microservices, Kubernetes makes it easy to find the cost of each application easily.
    • Like every new technology, initially, it took more resources to educate ourselves but over a period of time, I believe it's going to be worth it.
