A lot of the conversation on DevOps is focused on what are the right tools to accomplish our goals. The popularity of a tool is more than an indication of interest. Many of the popular DevOps tools are open source and the long-term viability of a project is dependent on the number of users of that project along with the ease of supporting it.

While emphasizing collaboration and integration, DevOps also looks to automation tools that can leverage an increasingly programmable and dynamic infrastructure from a lifecycle perspective. Version control and automating code deployments are two of the most impactful common tools. But, there are many more. Others include configuration management, containerization and IaaS.
