DevOps Helps Increase Deploy Frequency
The Puppet Labs study found four major metrics where the shift to DevOps impacts the delivery of new code. First and foremost is deployment frequency: High-performing DevOps organizations deploy code 30 times more frequently than traditional shops. DevOps shops also need less lead time to make code changes, with nearly a quarter of these organizations requiring less than an hour of lead time. This leads to faster deployments, with high-performing shops deploying 8000 times faster than their peers.
