DevOps folks don’t have much in the way of “orchestration.”

In our 1Q2014 DevOps Study (the first rev of this study), we wanted to explore the DevOps toolchain. The high-level categories are summarized above: there’s some good usage of tools, but if you dig deeper, most of the tools are “legacy” tools. When you dig in deeper, DIY tools do dominate usage as well. Notably – esp. for ServiceNow’s recently announced features and demo of being an “orchestrator of orchestrators” with Puppet and other fancy tools – orchestration/topology/architecture was in very low use.

I spoke a bit to this slide at my Red Hat Summit talk on cloud and DevOps, and you can see the next rumination on this study and other 451 work at DevOpsDays Austin next week.
