DevOps has been a primary topic of discussion within the IT world for the past few years. Adopting DevOps practices has been responsible for profit and revenue growth in many modern businesses. The core concept of breaking down IT silos is so promising, but the world of DevOps can feel overwhelming without the right resources.
Solutions Review has compiled a collection of the premier DevOps blogs and news websites that we’re reading. Keeping track of the latest news, trends, and best practices can help you stay ahead of the competition.

DevOps.com quickly established itself as the prime resource for DevOps professionals at any level, or for people interested in exploring DevOps.

DevOps and containers are often brought up in the same conversation. These two are not definitively intertwined, but containers offer key benefits that help DevOps practices. To perpetuate the bond between containers and DevOps, DevOps.com opened a sister site in 2015, Container Journal.
Container Journal’s goal is “to become an indispensable resource for education and information around container related computing, education and community building.” Like DevOps.com, Container Journal prides itself on being purely original content. They write in-depth features, breaking news and blog posts related to container technologies.

IT Revolution was founded in 2013 by Gene Kim, co-author of the popular novel, The Phoenix Project. The online description of the novel states, “Readers will not only learn how to improve their own IT organizations, they’ll never view IT the same way again.” This principle is what drives IT Revolution’s website.
IT Revolution is perfect for learning the benefits of DevOps. The site does not have the technical information available that you might find on other blogs. Instead, they work to gather stories from companies that have implemented DevOps. They publish this information for people interested in improving their IT efficiency and breaking down the IT silos.

The Register covers news, product reviews, and they have some instructional articles as well. They cover far more than just DevOps, but their DevOps page has valuable information in an entertaining package.
