CI is a DevOps software development best practice, enabling developers to intertwine code changes into a common repository, for testing. The whole purpose of the integration is to address the bugs quickly thus enhancing quality of the software, by reducing the time to check and release new updates.
CD is a software development practice where changes in application are automatically built, tested, and prepared for a release to production. It expands upon continuous integration by deploying all code changes to a testing environment and/or a production environment after the build stage.
Each service runs in its own process and communicates with other services through a HTTP-based API. Microservices are built around business capabilities and enterprises can use different frameworks or programming languages to package microservices.
Provision and manage infrastructure using code, version control and continuous integration. Cloud-native API-driven model enables developers and system administrators to interact with infrastructure programmatically, and at scale, instead of needing to manually set up and configure resources.
With monitoring & logging in place, enterprises understand how changes or updates impact end-users. It helps shedding insights into the root causes of problems or unexpected changes. Creating alerts or performing real-time analysis of this data also helps enterprises to monitor their services proactively.
