Focus on developing and scaling your web application, not on running infrastructure or managing security – Plesk helps you with all your WebOps needs.
What is WebOps?
Web Operations (or WebOps) is defined as a domain of expertise within IT systems management that entails the deployment, operation, security, maintenance, tuning, and repair of web-based systems. It is considered a subset of the larger DevOps movement. In the past, these tasks required a number of specialists to ensure correct functioning of all the components throughout an application’s lifetime. Today, the WebOps role is rapidly becoming a distinct specialty to support application developers by automating all such relevant tasks and processes through a platform like Plesk. These processes are today mostly based in the cloud – hosted at a service provider or one of the large cloud infrastructure providers such as Amazon Web Services or Microsoft Azure.
How does WebOps differentiate from shared hosting?
- Shared Hosting is generic and focused on SysAdmins – WebOps focuses on developers.
- Shared Hosting is geared towards services (websites, email, etc.) – WebOps comprises application development workflows plus automation of infrastructure and security underneath.
- Shared Hosting is about installing services only – WebOps handles the whole life cycle from installation, operation, maintenance and security of services.
- Shared Hosting uses server resources in a siloed mode – WebOps provides an integrated environment of services that is entirely friction free to operate.
