Why this Blog
This blog is about IT infratructure and IT Operations but from a holistic approach taking into consideration the whole IT. I was first intrigged to create a blog when I relaized that most of the discussion on IT infrastructure in DevOps conferences and books comes from developers and targets developers. Little discussion is coming from those working with infrastructure. It seems like, before DevOps, developers were ignorant of infrastructure, rather considering it as a big black box with infinite capabilities. Infrastructure operations, on the other hand, did not have a good knowledge of how developers (want to) use the infrastructure and the services they are supporting.
Thinking that there is a gap, I decided to start this blog to discuss how infrastructure should be built and operated in a modern IT environment, supporting DevOps, providing value and advancing IT in society. We need to transform IT from “big black boxes” to dependable systems, with well-defined principles and rules, if we are to support non-stop operations in a fast changing, complex and demanding 24×7 environment.

This blog is nothing more than my thoughts, sometimes immature and unstructured. I try to present these thoughts in a meaningful way, but that does not always work as intended. I urge readers to think for themselves, and I am looking forward to feedback and discussion.
